We will inform you about the progress in developing the discharge-free near- Earth satellites. Also, we will report on participation of our specialists in preparing international guidance documents on the problem of spacecraft charging. A part of this paper will cover spacecraft activities investigating geomagnetic and radiation conditions on near-Earth orbits
Computer simulations and experimental investigation for characteristics of the standard analog device – the heterodyne executed on the printed circuit board with replacement insulators from the composite dielectric having controlled dark conductivity have been carried out. Results of simulation showed that increase in conductivity of material of the printed circuit board (PCB) up to 2·10-7 Ω-1 ·m-1 practically does not change operating characteristics of a heterodyne in the range of the frequencies of 9 - 37 MHz. Simulation results are in good agreement with experimental data. Possibility of their effective use in space application devices, which prevents emergence of electrostatic discharges it, has been shown.
In many organizations implementation of innovation is initiated by the management with application of so-cold “top-down” approach: strategic targets and key success factors with the initiatives of its achieving are formed and consolidated in different regulations, procedures, rules and instructions, which are brought to concrete employees later. The feedback from employees is occurred on the fact of initiative execution in form of corrective procedures locally, but the forming of innovation is still the top-management prerogative.
Such centric approach is mostly demotivating approach for initiative employees, who generate, implement and use innovation ideas. For this problem correction hybrid methods are used. The creation of special department inside the company is supposed to be done. It bears duties of innovation catalyst (usually R&D and HR departments have this role). Among other things this department is responsible for inspiration of average executive on development of innovation, determination and consolidation of corporate values and standards of behavior. In the end, the employees orientation on single corporate targets, the increase of corporate spirit would again “top-down” imposed and the department is just the retransmitter of values that are determined by the management.
How should the politics of relations between colleagues, clients and partners be naturally created and how to establish the awareness by the company employees of their personal responsibility and their personal role in corporate values realization, creation of innovation atmosphere inside the organization that does not resist the innovation? The approach, which is described in this article, supposes the forming of distributed network inside the organization with the transfer to it the general effort in the sphere of creating innovations and implementing the corporate ethics principals.
The materials of the Third International scientific and technical conference "Management of scientific and technical projects" are presented. The main areas of the conference: management of engineering projects in corporations, management of research projects, the formation of a project team based on a competency-based approach. For specialists and heads of research institutions, technological, development and construction organizations.
The article is based on the introductory part of the collection on “Material Culture and Technology in Everyday Life: Ethnographic Approaches” (2009). The author presents a brief review of concepts that have been lately employed in research on material or technological culture. He attempts to show that different disciplines do in fact use adjacent notions and concepts in thinking about materiality, and tries to delineate ways of bringing the different research traditions to a unified platform that could serve as a theoretical foundation for the complex materialistic study of technological culture.
Researchers focus on understanding the nature of ecosystems and societies as well as explaining how paradigms change. These efforts are presented and disseminated through scholarly work in scientific literature. The pool of knowledge generated through databases allows one to track how our understanding changes and how paradigms shift through time. The present study is concerned with the domain of innovation policy, which is affected directly by societal and technological change and is a good archetype for demonstrating the scientific change perspective. In recent years, scientometrics has been frequently used to measure and analyze progress in science, technology and innovation. This study makes use of a combination of scientometric analysis and evolutionary framework analysis to demonstrate the evolution of innovation policy domain. Kuhn’s seminal approach is applied for classifying and interpreting the phases across the evolution of the domain within a 30-year timeframe. The analysis demonstrates that the innovation policy domain is at the “crisis stage” as a result of ongoing with transformations in the society, technology, economy and policy. These transformations affect both supply and demand sides of innovation and call for an evolution in the innovation policy domain. Although this by no means represents that the innovation policy domain is in a “deadlock”, the present study asserts that there is a new quest in innovation policy by adapting, re-framing or re-constructing the scope of the domain. The anticipated paradigm shift is expected to lead to a more de-centralized and distributed understanding of the world for innovation policy making.

Industry 4.0 has altered as well as disrupted the business model of organizations around the world. The adoption however, has been slow in the various industries as a clear roadmap for the integration of the same lacks in project planning. This brief fills this gap as it examines the development of a Value Roadmap for different industries using Industry 4.0 as an enabler. Using the automotive, healthcare and telecommunication industries as case studies, the authors create the value roadmap using five factors: market drivers, product features, technology features, enablers and resources. This framework integrates both technology and market knowledge to support strategy development, innovation and operational processes in organizations.
This article analyses the way in which Black Mirror’s contemporary TV science fiction doesn’t just infuse science fiction (SF) with a narratively supernatural force, but implicitly reflects on religious matters and even acts as a version of “implicit religion”. The author argues that Black Mirror’s reception context, as a show that is frequently binged by fans, positions it in relation to experiences of the sacred within consumerist everyday life. The article also explores how Black Mirror has represented religious notions within SF as a genre, given that science fiction has arguably experienced “genre evaporation” as SF tropes and imagery have become culturally generalised. The article considers how SF and religion can intersect, drawing on a modified functionalism. Although Black Mirror might be assumed to represent a cultural moment where science fiction has collapsed as a distinctive genre, the author suggests that the series nonetheless explores forms of uncanny digital salvation and immersion, as well as ritualised uses of technology. The series may not have given rise to a “fiction-based religion” in Markus Davidsen’s terms, but it nevertheless characteristically represents discourses surrounding new technology as a manifestation of implicit religion.
For the last 5 years the market of intellectual capital has dramatically decreased, the graduating students’ knowledge quality steadily decreases and the ambitions for the fee increase. This article describes the application of currently most promising methods of (1) network (graph) theory, (2) data mining and (3) subject-oriented approach to business process modelling for creating and automation of innovative process and therefore for maximization of ROI (return on investments) in universities intellectual and social capital. Descried approach represents the High School activity as the knowledge-made process, reveals students, capable of innovation activity for their further deep study of innovation practice, transfers the moment of novation forming with further discussion the possibility of novation realization as an innovation into the educational process, develops maximum person-independent procedures of innovation work groups forming and expert communities for evaluation of both novations and innovation budgets. The given research was held in a frame of the contract № 13.G25.31.0096 with the Ministry for Education and Science of Russian Federation «Creation of hi-tech manufacture of unstructured information processing in cross-platform system on the open-source software basis in order to increase management efficiency of innovative activity of enterprises in modern Russia».
