“Lancet”

The future of military operations is likely to be associated with the confrontation of systems that use physical, digital and electronic means of warfare. In this regard, we, in turn, believe that we must develop the niche that we have already occupied in the tactical level: loitering ammunition, reconnaissance drones“, – said Lushnikov.

In particular, according to him, “colossal prospects” for the Vikhr guided missiles produced by the concern. “I will not disclose details yet, but we are working on this closely and seriously. Good groundwork in terms of technologies and competencies has already been formed: the product has already begun to be tested and work in a confidential mode with the customer on implementation“, – he said.

According to Lushnikov, at present, global manufacturers are actively working on algorithms for autonomous targeting in the image of a target without further support from the firing platform or shooter after guidance and launch. “The ammunition flies across the picture and therefore can be aimed at a moving target. This is where we are going and what we are working on, but I cannot reveal the details yet.“, he stressed.

The President of Kalashnikov noted that the concern is constantly modernizing the work of all means and is in direct contact with the Ministry of Defense on this issue. In addition, Lushnikov praised the effectiveness of the Lancet and KUB drones, saying that they should not be compared with the Turkish Bayraktar.

The comparison is incorrect. it [Bayraktar] – a completely different machine. KUB – a plane filled with explosives, which must fly exactly to the targetb,” said the owner of the Kalashnikov. He also said that the “Lancet” and KUB are not designed to work on moving targets. According to him, “this is not a disadvantage, but a feature of the application» drones of the concern.

The new program will allow you to make and receive calls on your PC using your smartphone, send and receive text messages, transfer photos and files, and receive various notifications.

It’s somewhat similar to the Link to Phone app in Windows 10 and Windows 11, but Unison offers more options. If Link to Phone only works with Samsung smartphones and some other brands, then the new system will appear for all mobile devices. At the same time, the iPhone version will be slightly less functional – this applies to text messaging and managing third-party applications. All this is due to the restrictions put forward by the company from Cupertino.

At the first stage, the new feature will be available only to owners of laptops based on 12th generation processors released by Acer, HP and Lenovo. These laptops are part of the Intel Evo program. After the release of models on chips of the 13th generation, the list will expand.

Note that there is a similar one on the MacBook, where you can synchronize data with the iPhone. Now the same is expected on Windows.
