#news high technology 258 | electric Kalashnikov and smart submarines

Every Monday in the new issue of «News high-tech» we summarize the previous week, talking about some of the most important events, the key discoveries and inventions. This time we will talk about the electric car "Kalashnikov", a smart submarines and more!

1. On the forum "Army-2018" showed a concept electric car "Kalashnikov". New car "Kalashnikov" is made on the basis of the body IZH "Kombi".

We're talking about how to compete with that Tesla, because currently it is a successful project in the field of electric vehicles. We expect at least not to give him — the company said.

The Concept car's CV-1, according to representatives of "Kalashnikov", shown at the international forum "Army-2018", is "bench testing the development of complex systems." "Their status is governed by common on-Board calculator own development of concern "Kalashnikov", which allows you to monitor the condition of the engine, inverter and battery," — said in concern. The new model is better electric car from Tesla, the concern is not specified.

The capacity of the battery is 90 kWh, it is powered by a "revolutionary inverter", the dimensions of which are 50 x 50 x 100 cm and allows you to develop power up to 1.2 kW. Rated power CV-1 — 220 kW peak – 500 kW. The cruising range of the car is 350 km away.

2. Solar planes are still perceived to be a gimmick. And recently, one of such aircraft from the company Bye Aerospace made the first successful flight. In addition, became known some details about the future developments of the company.

The Plane is called StratoAirNet, and testing took place in the vicinity of the regional airport of Northern Colorado. After the first manned flight, the plane made several more flights from the airport. The first flight lasted about an hour, and the rest were made to practice landing and taking off and to follow the behavior of the instrument.

StratoAirNet has a wingspan of 15 meters, and vysokoeffektivnaya solar cells from the company SolAero mounted on the wings, allow him is in the air indefinitely. The first test flight was manned, but the company plans to make the aircraft unmanned, or, as said by the developers, "atmospheric satellite". It will be used for reconnaissance, Internet distribution, search-and-rescue missions, mapping, and so on.

In Addition, it became known that Bye Aerospace is developing solar aircraft Sun Flyer 2. Sun Flyer 2 will be developed jointly with Siemens and will be designed to carry two passengers.

3. Autonomous Flotilla of submarines under the control of artificial intelligence advances in densely populated Asian water-ways. Transport will belong to the Chinese armed forces, and his mission will definitely make the next country to raise surprised eyebrows. As informs Chinese resource SCMP, submarines will be able to perform "tasks of a wide range, from reconnaissance to placing mines and even suicide attacks on enemy vessels".

If all goes according to plan, the first submarine will be launched in 2020. Although the details of the project remain sparse, one unnamed scientists told the SCMP that the submarines "will be without nuclear weapons".

Before the onboard AI systems will be challenged to make decisions on the rate and depth, to avoid detection, and to identify any vessel that passes by. One of the topics that causes some concern for whether AI systems to request information during the mission. In other words, will they be able to make their own decisions about who to attack.

China's Neighbors will definitely be surprised with this news. Submarines, most likely, will patrol the zone in the South China sea and the Pacific ocean. In these zones the disputed waters, which China, Japan and Vietnam share among themselves. Not so long ago, the Chinese military has created an artificial island in this region, to host military bases.

4. air Pollution reduces global life expectancy more than one year, scientists say. According to a new study conducted by a group of leading environmental engineers and researchers in public health, improving air quality can lead to a significant increase in life expectancy around the world.

This is the first case, when data on air pollution and life expectancy were studied together to reveal global differences in how they affect the overall life expectancy.

Scientists have studied pollution of the outdoor air for particulate matter (PM) less than 2.5 microns. That small particles can penetrate deep into the lungs, and inhalation of them is associated with an increased risk of heart attacks, strokes, respiratory diseases and cancer. Contamination by such particles comes from power plants, cars and trucks, fires, agriculture, and industrial emissions.

The Scientists compared the level of air pollution in different countries, and life expectancy and came to the conclusion that the dirty air has a big impact on life reduces about a year of life. So it is better to live closer to the forests.
