The modernization of Russia’s missile attack early warning system will boost its potential and detection capabilities, Chief Designer of the Research Institute for Long-Range Radio Communications (part of RTI Group) Sergei Saprykin told TASS on Monday.

The radar stations of the Russian missile attack early warning system went into service quite recently and have a service life of over 30 years. Despite this, the system will be upgraded, the chief designer said.

"The upgrade is planned and concerns boosting the potential and measuring capabilities," Saprykin said.

As a result, the radar stations will get artificial intelligence elements but won’t start "thinking" on their own, he added.

"Just imagine that a locator intended for preventing a nuclear missile strike would start to ‘think’ and acquire intelligence," the chief designer said, warning against this scenario.

RTI Group CEO Pavel Laptayev earlier said in an interview with TASS that Russia was preparing a project of modernizing radar stations of its missile attack early warning system. In particular, there are plans to use the computing capacities of data processing centers, artificial intelligence (machine learning) and big data analysis. This will help considerably speed up the task of defining the characteristics and the type of detected objects and the direction of their flight.

Today the Russian missile attack early warning system consists of two echelons: the space segment that currently comprises four Tundra satellites and the ground-based component that consists of Voronezh-type radar stations that cover all missile-dangerous directions.

How are you going to get Canada to let you in? Their immigration policy is far more restrictive than the US.
For now, you must pass a negative covid test to cross the Canadian border. You must also have $ 15,000 in your bank account. Then have a bac certificate in a domain or we have a lack of manpower. Good luck!

What have you tried to get in? Maybe if you can get a work permit and then get a job here you might be able to get it and get residency. If you were to try this route maybe wait till theres a definite near future war about to happen, I don't know how residency works and I don't know how long it can last. Maybe if you're a tradesman or have a skill that's in short supply here you might get in easier.

I have money so I don't work. Unfortunately, I have enough money not to work but not enough to qualify under Canadian immigration. (1.5 million or something like that.)

But I have said it in the past: I would move to Canada in a heartbeat if they would let me in. I would buy my home and then buy another and rent it out. That, plus the income we get regularly, would set us for life.
