RUDN scientists have developed a new method for determining the orientation of objects in the antenna complex based on measurements of a strapdown inertial system

Employees of the laboratory of physical processes and technologies for manufacturing wave solid-state gyroscopes (WSG) have found a General solution to the problem of nonlinear filtering of orientation parameters based on inertial measurements of objects located on a base subject to highly dynamic disturbances.

It is established that modern methods for determining orientation using measurements of satellite navigation systems or inertial orientation systems do not provide the required accuracy for solving the problem of orientation of large or medium-sized objects. In this regard, a new dynamic algorithm for estimating stochastic orientation parameters has been developed that is invariant to the nature of the base movement and provides stability and the required accuracy of estimation under the most General assumptions about the nature of interference of sensitive elements of a strapdown inertial orientation system built on the basis of WSG. The Rodriguez-Hamilton parameter vector is used as the observed vector of orientation parameters, and the accelerometer output signal is proposed to be used as its observer. Based on the stochastic nonlinear equations of the vector of parameters of the current orientation and the equations of stochastic models of accelerometer output signals constructed for the most General case of object motion, a generalized Kalman filter was formed that provides a General solution to the problem of estimating the orientation parameters of an arbitrary structure on a movable base. The results of numerical simulation confirmed the possibility of using the developed method for solving the problem of high-precision orientation determination without correction from global satellite navigation systems over a long time interval.

Biologists from RUDN University discovered the secret of flaxseed oil with long shelf life

Biologists from RUDN University working together with their colleagues from the Institute of Molecular Biology of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Institute of Flax studied the genes that determine the fatty acid composition in flaxseed oil and identified polymorphisms in six of them. The team also found out what gene variations could extend the shelf life of flaxseed oil. This data can be used to improve the genetic selection of new flax breeds. The results were published in the BMC Plant Biology journal.

Dentists from RUDN University Presented a New Classification of Root Canal Shape Changes

Individual characteristics of the shape and cross-section of the root canal are one of the main issues for dentists. When treating a root canal, a doctor needs to properly clean it, fill it, and carry out a rebuilding procedure so that a canal is sealed. The first stage of endodontic treatment requires detailed knowledge of root canal anatomy. A team of dentists from RUDN University studied and classified various changes in root canal shapes. The new classification will help doctors avoid diagnostic errors, better select their tools, and treat patients more efficiently.

A chemist from RUDN developed a green catalyst for pharmaceutical and industrial chemistr

Many production facilities (e.g. plastic manufacturers, pharma companies, and others) use nanocatalysts that contain palladium—an expensive component that is not sustainably produced. A chemist from RUDN University found a way to reduce palladium consumption and to make its manufacture more eco-friendly. He developed a catalyst based on a substance that comes from plant waste. Using his invention, manufacturers could cut palladium consumption in half. Moreover, new catalysts can be reused multiple times without any decrease in efficiency.
