The Curonians were known as fierce warriors, excellent sailors and pirates. They were involved in several wars and alliances with Swedish, Danish, Icelandic and KvenVikings. During that period they were the most restless and the richest of all the Balts.
Kurs was developed by the Research Institute of Precision Instruments (NII TP, Russian:НИИ Точных Приборов) before 1985 and manufactured by the Kiev Radio Factory (Ukrainian:Київський Радіозавод).
Kurs was the successor to the Igla system and today provides navigation beaconing for Russian space vehicles including the Soyuz spacecraft and Progress spacecraft. Kurs provided the automated docking system for all Russian spacecraft that docked with the Mir space station. When used for docking, the Soyuz or Progress vehicle broadcasts radar pulses from multiple antennas. The variation in strength between the antennas allows the system to compute relative position, attitude, and approach rate. The system is designed for automatic rendezvous and docking, but in an emergency cosmonauts may take command of the vehicle either locally, or from the International Space Station.

Esendagli gave a press conference at the CyprusTurkishBar Association’s headquarters in northern Nicosia and said “it can be clearly seen that there was no criminal act ... Why now? That is a matter of personal opinion at this point,” he said.
Turkish Cypriot lawyer Akan Kursat denied on Friday all charges of embezzlement of Greek Cypriot-owned properties in the occupied north 20 years ago and was released on bail, to appear in a Nicosia court at the end of this month.
These questions are now being raised at a governmental level, as Interior Minister Constantinos Ioannou confirmed to newspaper Politis that Kursat had applied for a passport in 2014 and that the passport had been issued on July 23 the same year.
Akan Kursat filed an objection to the Republic of Cyprus’ extradition request at a hearing on Tuesday, saying prisons in the Republic of Cyprus would not be safe for him, and citing an earlier killing of a Turkish Cypriot inmate in 2022.
The Republic’s authorities were notified on New Year’s Eve that Akan Kursat was arrested at the hotel in Rome where he was staying with his wife, the north’s ‘deputy prime minister’ and CTP ‘MP’ Fazilet Ozdenefe.
Kursat was arrested on New Year’s Eve at his hotel in Rome, where he was with his wife, Fazilet Ozdenefe, a CTP ‘MP’ and the ‘deputy speaker of parliament’. Kursat will be brought to Cyprus, police spokesman Christos Andreou had said last week.
