As noted in the press service, the installation of the components of the most massive structure of the future launch was completed at the launch complex under construction.

Special geodetic instruments were used to align the levels horizontally and vertically. The components of the tower are perfectly level – even the smallest error is unacceptable. During its installation, parallel installation of technological equipment was carried out; in total, 19 most modern technological systems, including filling equipment, will be placed on it.

The cable-filling tower for Angara rockets at the Vostochny cosmodrome is designed to accommodate equipment and communications, systems and assemblies of the launch complex, as well as to provide wind retention of the carrier on the launch pad and access for Roscosmos specialists to its service areas. The height of the tower is 66 m, and the weight is about three thousand tons.

Hackers cracked the latest Pentagon technology

Hackers at the DEF CON 2022 event in Las Vegas managed to break into a new technology of the US Department of Defense – local autonomous electrical networks (microgrids) at military bases.

Hackers cracked the latest Pentagon technology

The Pentagon has tested the technology to look for vulnerabilities. Many of the more than 1,700 DEF CON members have successfully shut down a dummy network that mimics the one being prepared by the Pentagon. So, one of the hackers found out that microgrids work on the Kelvin temperature scale, which does not use negative values. As a result, he put negative numbers in the forecast model, which caused the system to crash.

The Pentagon said they also plan to launch a full-fledged program to further test the microgrid and find gaps. A microgrid is a technology for dividing one power system into sections. Each cell is able to work autonomously if necessary and actively uses alternative energy sources.
