NUST MISIS Experts: Satellites to be able to Refuel on the Moon

At the roundtable discussion named “New opportunities of innovative development in the mining processing industry: On the question of raw materials space base developmen,” and hosted during the 25th anniversary of the International Scientific Symposium “Miner`s Week — 2017”, experts in the field discussed the opportunities for the market of space services.

NUST MISIS and TEEMP Develop Device to Start Heavy Equipment at Temperatures as Cold as −60 °C

Together with TEEMP (a company in the RENOVA group), a group of NUST MISIS scientists led by Professor Mikhail Astakhov, head of the NUST MISIS Department of Physical Chemistry, has completed the testing of an innovative starter system based on supercapacitors developed in-house. The autonomous system is able to start the engines of heavy-wheeled trucks, tractors, other Caterpillar equipment, and aviation equipment at extremely low temperatures (up to −60 °C).

NUST MISIS: SeverCorr to Increase Service Life of Oil-Field Pipelines

NUST MISIS has completed another series of experimental heats for the development of new steel grades for use in oil-field pipes. Several promising concepts of new steel, which will have increased corrosion resistance and improved mechanical characteristics, have been worked out jointly with “Tsniichermet” and other designated organizations from Samara and Saint Petersburg. The work on the preparation of experimental heats for Severstal has already started.

Airborne Thermometer to Measure Arctic Temperatures

Russian scientists from NUST MISIS, MIPT and Prokhorov General Physics Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences have compared the effectiveness of several techniques of remote water temperature detection based on laser spectroscopy and evaluated various approaches to spectral profile interpretation. The paper detailing the study was published in Optics Letters.

NUST MISIS Scientists Create Unique Metamaterial

A group of scientists from the NUST MISIS Laboratory of Superconducting Metamaterials have come up with a unique metamaterial which can make combat vehicles invisible, the authoritative scientific journal Physical Review wrote.
