In 2006, a group of Russian IT specialists initiated the development of a media platform for mobile TV. The results of their activities made it possible to launch the SPB TV mobile television service in 2007. Since that time, SPB TV exists as an independent company that is engaged in the creation and development of its own technologies in the field of online broadcasting. The CEO of the company is Kirill Filippov.From the beginning SPB TV video service was available worldwide. In 2016 a separate service SPB TV Russia was allocated. It is available only in the territory of the Russian Federation. With its appearance, the international version of SPB TV became known as SPB TV World,.The head office is located in Zug (Switzerland) and the research and development center is based in St. Petersburg (Russia). The SPB TV group of companies includes Skolkovo resident Pitersoftwarehaus.

This research provides an important step in the conceptualization and development of an integrated wildfire fuels reduction system from silvicultural prescription, through stem selection, harvesting, in-woods processing, transport, and market selection. Decisions made at each functional step are informed by knowledge about subsequent functions. Data on the resource characteristics of small-diameter ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa Dougl. ex Laws.), harvest equipment productivity, lumber recovery, and net profit (loss) by level of fuels reduction achieved were collected from four 8.1-ha (20 acres) sites in northern Arizona. These data were used to develop a Windows-based financial and engineering software program, the harvest cost-revenue estimator, to identify the economic costs of wildfire fuel reduction treatments that may be used to evaluate cost per acre thresholds for logging contractors, appraise contract bid rates, or assess stumpage values for ponderosa pine stands in the Southwestern United States. Application of the model illustrates variability in fuels reduction costs owing to the level of fuels reduction achieved, the volume of merchantable wood removed from different forest stands, and the availability of markets for removed material. Machine productivity helps predict differences in harvest costs but is secondary to market constraints and the volume of wood harvested. 2b1af7f3a8
