Germany will launch its own spy satellites

25
Berlin before the end of this month can place an order for the manufacture of three spy satellites for the Federal Intelligence Service of Germany (BND). This is reported newspapers media groups Redaktionsnetzwerk Deutschland citing sources.


To date, the German Federal Intelligence Service (BND) is requesting aerial filming from the Bundeswehr or the armies of the allied countries, as well as purchasing satellite images from commercial structures. However, “due to the unstable situation in the world”, the BND declared the need to have its own reconnaissance satellites.

Germany will launch its own spy satellites


The program for the purchase of satellite "spies" called Georg. At the first stage of its implementation, it is planned to launch up to three satellites, from which BND will receive data. The basic cost of the Georg program is stated at € 400 million, with the parliamentary opposition criticizing the purchase of satellites, indicating that costs can double.

According to unofficial information, Airbus and the NVG SE have already submitted their proposals for the production of reconnaissance satellites. In addition, among the possible contractors is the company Israel Aerospace Industries. According to the plans, the launch of satellites into Earth orbit is planned at the beginning of the 2020s.

      It seems that the credibility of their "friends" is falling)) they decided to do their own thing correctly. And what will eventually be done, there is no doubt

              You forget that the Bundeswehr satellites are NATO satellites, that is, the United States has access to them. So it pleases that German intelligence has taken care of an independent source of information. Too many lies come from the United States, so the TRUTH is always against the United States.

                Satellites of the Bundeswehr are satellites of the Bundeswehr.

          Hey. And it’s not only Germans, and not only suspect, but it’s quite concrete to make sure that the chief curator brings them to me in all directions. It’s terrible what kind of “vintage” they raised around SP-2, they say that it will lead to the dependence of “Europe” on Russian pipes and that American LNG contains much more vitamins than Russian natural. They pushed their LNG for some idiots, but what actually happened?

          Well then - let the loser cry. " fool Want to be happy, be them. " yes

    The title does not correspond to reality. Germany cannot launch satellites without assistance, as well as create its own. Ukrainians with Canadians also gathered to explore space.

    Will they launch from Baikonur? Or from the "East"? And nothing bad will happen if your spy companion, our dear German fascist comrades, lies down for a week or two in the back room. smile We swear on the health of your Merkel! soldier

    According to plans, the launch of satellites into Earth orbit is planned in the early 2020s.


    I wonder who will display the satellites?

    And who will launch these satellites, is it really Russia? But if the States, then by all means the Russian RD-180, because they have no others. Here it is, military cooperation and integration, who doubted that loot is everything?

      Europeans have their own missiles, the United States has missiles with their own engines. Arian-5, Delta-4, Falcon-9, plus the Japanese, Israel and so on

        Hey. Yes, launching hardware into orbit is not a big problem. But the satellite system is exactly the SYSTEM, and here the problems are full. It’s neither cold nor hot for us (Russia) when about 5000 satellites of different caliber and purpose are already spinning around the ball. Let yourself spend it.
