  • August 2020: interviewing R-sensors on new products for marine industry
    August 2020: interviewing R-sensors on new products for marine industry published an interview (Rus) with R-sensors' general director Vadim Agafonov, PhD in Physics and Math.

    The R-sensors engineers developed new acoustic sensors designed for marine oil&gas seismic exploration. These sensors are a hydrophone and a dual sensor consisting of a geophone and a hydrophone inside. They were successfully tested in the Black Sea and approved by the Marinet industry center of Russia. was started in 2002 and is now highly popular among top managers of shipbuilding enterprises, design engineers, ship owners and suppliers of marine equipment.
  • June 2020: R-sensors team gets knowledge and experience
    June 2020: R-sensors team gets knowledge and experience
    Explorers of the R-sensors team are regularly improving their knowledge to provide you the best solutions based on high output parameters of our instruments. 

    We are proud to announce 2 recent events. 

    Anna Shabalina, electronics engineer, received her PhD in Physics and Math from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, Russia. Anna presented a thesis on ‘The physical mechanisms for shaping frequency responses and self-noise generation of the miniature molecular-electronic motion sensors’. The thesis was devoted to studying output characteristics of molecular-electronic sensors and helped go deeper into the nature of their self-noise. 

    Dmitry Zaitsev, lead explorer, PhD in Physics and Math, received a Certificate of an active reviewer of the 20-th International Scientific Conference on Earth and Planetary Sciences – SGEM 2020, Bulgaria. 

    We congratulate our colleagues on these remarkable achievements and wish them growth in the chosen areas! 

    Currently, 4 team members holding PhDs are working at R-sensors.

  • February 2020: frequency characteristics on IRIS website
    February 2020: frequency characteristics on IRIS website
    Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology (IRIS) published the updated results of frequency characteristics of our instruments with the poles and zeros presentation. 

    This link shows the results for accelerometers, geophones and seismometers. This is the most recent and accurate information. 

    The IRIS links to these characteristics are also given at the model's webpages accordingly.
  • December 2019: R-sensors at innovations exhibition in Sochi, Russia
    December 2019: R-sensors at innovations exhibition in Sochi, Russia
    The Global Technology Leadership forum was held on 05 to 07 December in Sochi, south of Russia. The forum was focused on implementation of cutting edge technologies and development of innovations in Russia. 

    An appealing part of the forum was an exhibition organized by Foundation for Assistance of Small Industrial Enterprises (FASIE). The exhibition covered Russian hitech solutions and products. All the participants are winners of the contest which focused on supporting companies on the markets of the National Technology Initiative (the Russian government's program to develop new markets).

    In 2017 R-sensors' scientific project for developing broadband seismic and acoustic sensors for marine seismic exploration was approved and funded in the 'NTI-Development' program, the Marinet area of research (that is the National Technology Initiative's work group supporting hitech for maritime industries). 

    R-sensors showed a dual sensor (geophone + hydrophone) to be used in an ocean-bottom cable system for marine seismic exploration.
  • September 2019: seismological workshop in Chisinau, Moldova
    September 2019: seismological workshop in Chisinau, Moldova
    R-sensors' top management took part in XII International Seismological Workshop on 'Modern methods of processing and interpretation of seismological data'. The event was held from 9 to 13 September in Chisinau, Moldova. 

    R-sensors' general director Vadim Agafonov (PhD in Physics and Math) gave a scientific report on 'Broadband electrochemical seismometers'. Seismologists and geophysiсists showed much interest and asked questions on the topic. 

    The following themes were reported at the workshop: 
    • Up-to-date conditions of seismic observations in Russia and countries close to Russia 
    • New programs of processing and interpretation of seismological data 
    • Features of seismic tectonics of Eastern-European platform and its bond with seismicity 
    • Results of seismological observations in Northern Eurasia countries 

    The workshop was hosted by Geophysical Survey of Russian Academy of Sciences (GS RAS) in cooperation with Ministry of education, culture and research of Moldova, Moldova's Academy of Sciences and Institute of Geology and Seismology.
  • August 2019: Customer Feedback
    August 2019: Customer Feedback
    Feedback given by Sodisstore, Russia, on using accelerometers MTSS-1043A in the structural health monitoring of stadiums in Moscow, Ekaterinburg, Samara, Saransk for FIFA-2018. 

    Feedback given by SMIS Expert, Russia, on installation of accelerometers MTSS-1043A into the structural engineering monitoring system on the sport arena of the Luzhniki complex, Moscow.

    Need for using R-sensors’ accelerometers to ensure security of an urban infrastructure was confirmed.
  • August 2019: R-sensors
    August 2019: R-sensors' project with Bulgarian Academy of Sciences supported
    A project for research of amplitude and frequency characteristics of seismic signals generated by superficial sources was supported. 

    The project is being implemented jointly with Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (Sofia, Bulgaria) and will last for 2 years. 

    The scientific problem of the project is creation of new methods to research signals received from superficial sources on the basis of measurement of boundary waves characteristics for steady definition of shift and compression components of a seismic wave field with the use of highly sensitive sensors of angular and linear vibrations based on the principles of a molecular-electronic transfer.
