The Tu-214R is Russias Premier Intelligence Surveillance Reconnaissance aircraft. Equipped with sensors to perform Electronic Intelligence and Signal Intelligence missions as well as with all-weather radar systems and electro-optical sensors that produce photo-like imagery of the ground. The aircraft can intercept and analyse signals emitted by targeted systems while collecting imagery that can be used to identify and pinpoint enemy forces even if they are camouflaged or hidden.
A Brain-Computer Interface That Lasts for Weeks | Brain signals can be read using soft, flexible, wearable electrodes that stick onto and near the ear like a temporary tattoo and can stay on for more than two weeks even during highly demanding activities such as exercise and swimming, researchers say.
