№ 1 (2) 2015

The second issue of the Al’manac of Modem Metrology is devoted to the 60th anniversary of FSUE “VNIIFTRI”, one of the top state scientific metrological institutes, which will be marked in February 2015.
The contributors to this issue, the institute’s leading scientists, present new results from investigations in the fields of time and frequency, underwater acoustic, vibroacoustic, electrical and high pressure measurements.
Questions of ensuring the uniformity of measurements for radiation technologies, measurement of the parameters of technological media, the human environment, development of the standards base are discussed. The already traditional section on founders of metrology fields contains recollections of four prominent members of the scientific school of thought of VNIIFTRI.
