RUSSIAN SHIPYARD SAYS NOT YET CONSIDERING POSTPONING DELIVERIES OVER COVID-19
Thursday, April 2, 2020
MOSCOW -- Admiralty Shipyards, located in St. Petersburg, Russia, says it is not yet considering the postponement of deliveries to the Russian Navy over government quarantine measures.

In a statement April 2, the press service of the shipyard referred to such a postponement as 'premature' for the time being. Russia recently enacted a week off from work, with the exception of certain personnel, for most businesses, and is moving to implement more stricter lockdown measures in an effort to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus.

The shipyard is producing a number of submarines for the Russian Navy which are slated to enter service in the upcoming years. For the Pacific Fleet, Admiralty Shipyards is producing six Project 636.3 submarines, the first of which was commissioned into the fleet in November. Another one is supposed to enter service late this year, while the other submarines in the order should be delivered from 2021 to 2022. Further submarines in the class may be laid down for the Baltic Fleet as early as this year.

Admiralty Shipyards is also in the process of producing a pair of Project 677 submarines for the Navy.

Globally, nearly one million cases of COVID-19 have been reported, according to a tally kept by Johns Hopkins University, though experts believe that the true number of cases may be much higher due to low levels of testing. In Russia, over 3,500 cases have been reported, with a few dozen deaths.

As governments have worked to respond to the virus, through quarantine measures as well as repurposing some production lines to manufacture medical equipment, it is expected that economic growth across the world will dip in 2020.

ROHDE & SCHWARZ INTEGRATES FAST TIME DOMAIN SCAN AND MULTI CISPR ADP ON ESW EMI TEST EQUIPMENT
Tuesday, March 31, 2020
MUNICH -- Rohde & Schwarz has integrated a fast time domain scan as standard in its R&S ESW EMI test receiver. It works with double bandwidth to increase measuring speed. Also new, is the R&S EWS-K58 multi CISPR ADP option. This shows the effects of interference on digital communication systems precisely. The option accelerates CISPR 11 tests on microwave ovens and could prevail for other product tests in the future.

The R&S ESW is an EMI test receiver with outstanding RF characteristics for the measuring range from 1 Hz to 44 GHz. With its high dynamic range and measurement accuracy, it meets high requirements in EMI compliance testing and fulfills the most stringent requirements for all relevant EMI standards such as CISPR, EN, MIL STD-461, DO 160, and FCC.

With the conventional integrated FFT based time domain scan the R&S ESW captured and weighted disturbance spectra already very fast. The new fast time domain scan (fast TDS) doubles the scan bandwidth, so the measurement speed is nearly twice as fast as with a conventional time domain scan. This enables previously unattainable fast measurement times for time-consuming tests with the CISPR detectors quasi-peak and CISPR average. TDS is available free with firmware version V1.70 for the R&S ESW.

The R&S ESW-K58 multi CISPR APD measurement option - also new - enhances the single amplitude probability distribution (APD) measurement function into a simultaneous analysis of up to 67 channels within a specified timeframe. The option inspects for each channel of a signal the probability of occurring amplitudes. The option offers numerous analysis and display features, including a 3D view. The current CISPR 11 standard allows multi CISPR APD for testing microwave ovens, which considerably simplifies the measurement process. When the method is used in line with the standard for signals with 1 MHz bandwidth, with the R&S ESW can be measured simultaneously up to 20 channels. Thus, the EMI test receiver surpasses by far the standard requirement of just five channels guaranteeing a safe investment for users. APD analysis precisely shows the effects of interference on digital communication systems (e.g. WLAN or cellular), and in the future it will also be applied to other product standards.

SURVEY COPTER IS PARTICIPATING IN THE 3D PRODUCTION OF PROTECTIVE MEDICAL EQUIPMENT
Wednesday, April 1, 2020
PARIS -- SURVEY Copter, the tactical drones division of Airbus with its main site based in Pierrelatte, in southern France, this week gave a rapid and positive response to the proposal for an association with the Montelimar "Convergences 26" FabLab in Drome Ardeche, to start up production of medical protection visors on the 3D printers normally used to build drones.

The parts produced with a 3D printer, using fused deposition modelling (FDM) on an ABS type plastic base, account for up to 15% of the components of a drone built by SURVEY Copter.

The SURVEY Copter 3D printers take about 45 minutes to produce a visor. It is not certified from the outset as medical equipment but it nonetheless offers the required protection and, given the urgency, is consequently being officially approved by the Montelimar CHU (university hospital). The challenge is to be able to produce a visor capable of withstanding the disinfection procedures used in a hospital environment at temperatures of up to 110-degree C, without deformation or opacity.

In various ways, including via the Gendarmerie, these visors are then shipped to the users, that is to the medical staff in the Montelimar and Valence university hospitals, freelance nurses, retirement homes and a certain number of Town Halls in the Ard├Ęche and Drome d├ępartements.

SURVEY Copter normally employs about fifty staff on the Pierrelatte site and, on a volunteer basis, it has exceptionally enabled its 3D printer team to take part in this operation.

"Providing our urgent assistance to the medical sector, faced as it is with the COVID-19 epidemic, is one of our priorities, both locally and internationally, and the reactivity of Nicolas Askamp and his teams at SURVEY Copter is a perfect illustration of this," said Dirk Erat, Head of Communications at Airbus Defence and Space.
