Patent "SU ¹1270256 À1" invention description from the RUSSIAN FEDERAL SERVICE FOR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY, PATENTS AND TRADEMARKS
Patent "SU ¹1270256 À1" invention description from the European Patent Office
I apologize for that appeal to you, but for me it is something of a "tiny straw" which a drowning man grabs for. The technical side of things will be clear for you from the attached copy of the TSNTTM "Nadezda" ("Hope") letter from 11.04.1988, so I will not repeat.
Unfortunately, the one who addressed this letter, it apparently did not read, and those who read it, probably decided not to burden themselves with thoughts.
I am 38 years old, I have a diploma in civil engineering, although earlier I studied in Physical-Mathematical boarding-school, a and completed two courses in the Physics Department of Leningrad State University. My general and uninterrupted term of work is for 20 years. My work and personal biography is rather complicated (because "I'm not on my knees crawling), but morally and politically clean.
Over the past 20 years, I've never felt satisfaction from their social work. Moreover, I constantly feel that all my knowledge (physics, mathematics - a course of physical faculty of Leningrad State University; construction - ñalculation, design, all functions of customer and contractor), experience, intuition and creativity in a serious sense of the word nobody needs.
Perhaps this is due to the fact that my parents - simple laborers, and I have no any sponsors and any co-authors too. My present life, the social aspect of which is usually reduced to "wiping the pants for bread and water," I do not feel worthy of man. In the formula "from each according to his ability, to each - according to work" namely the first part is very attractive to me.
When i have ended some construction design, I always knew what and how you can improve, namely because of this, I once had to leave the Design Institute. In matters of accuracy, I always stayed a physicist and mathematician for all my life, that often causes confusion and even laughter among other builders.
The things, what are described in a letter TSNTTM "Nadezda" ("Hope") - not the most recent my achievements. Picture on the back side of which the black "star" is situated is placed in VNIIGPE since 1984, while I pointed out that this construction can be used for construction in space, but for VNIIGPE it means nothing.
Now it is obvious for me that all the curved contour elements can be moved into space rolled up, that is, they will be filled with air directly before the mounting (I thought: the contour arches will be as "sausages" made of metal or plastic). With this realization in space do not need to deliver a single rigid elongated element, however, there can be constructed fairly rigid structures, covering all the necessary volume of a three-dimensional space.
Inside the two-storey outlet (see photo), whose sides are also sewn with ropes, you can be grown the plastic "bubble" from firm Hughes (see , p. 126) - you get ready laboratory.
I believe that in space, we should adopt something from the spider: the cables for the network shouldn't produce on earth, but pulling them in space from a special vessel containing resin that hardens after stretching.
Generally speaking, the "duplex receptacle" of small size are likely to be applicable as a laboratory on the outer surface of which are placed solar cells, reflectors or antennas. Major "socket" (one-or two-story) - is an artificial planet, to which the spaceships can be mooring (network, by the way, can soften the blow from "mooring"). On the work surface of network by anchoring cross over cables sealed units (laboratories, homes) can be attached. Cables of the net can also be the core for communication and power systems (cable tracing), and possibly as the "rails" for planetary rovers.
My "creative kitchen", equipped with the latest Faraday and Lord Kelvin, does not stand still - I already have two designs of "two-storey construction" one hundred percent of prefabrication, which unfold themselves in space without human intervention...
The main issue that worries me now: "Does anyone in the USSR has needs in my proposals?" If it's no use to anyone for any reason, such as:
- made for the space under public pressure, cut back, the space program is very narrow and my design has no place in it;
- The Soviet Union in the coming years, decided to limit ourselves to "space reflectors", and for them has already been adopted and constructed "reverse umbrella" type design TsNIIPSK system;
- in my designs found "no utility" (wording VNIIGPE), so I would like to offer their ideas in any other country where they will be of interest (for example, the French National Office for Space Research, the British Interplanetary Society or NASA).
With regard to filing of patent applications through VNIIGPE, I already have the sad experience: several years punching his forehead closed doors, then as a result of it - an inventor's certificate number 1270256, in which the basic idea was corrupted to such state, that of the scope of rights protected by the evidence, it disappeared altogether (?!). But all the "rights" has the state, which, as the passed years shows, they absolutely do not need.
In all my life I have never had affairs with secret information, so I in principle, can not divulge any state secrets. I can share only the information to which I came myself. I believe that in space matters more intelligent patriotism is not at the level of "yard" or the country, but at the level of "Homo sapiens".
