Military Review

The accident of the Fregat upper stage was recorded by the military observation complex.

The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation recorded the time of the crash of the accelerating unit (RB) "Frigate" 28 November. Information about this was immediately transmitted to Roskosmos, reported News.

The accident of the Fregat upper stage was recorded by the military observation complex.

The detection of an emergency situation was provided by the Krona laser-radar complex for recognition of space objects.

A newspaper source in Roscosmos confirmed the receipt of data from the military department.

The system recorded an abnormal sharp change in the trajectory of the upper stage. Information is used to investigate what happened,
he said.

The Defense Ministry noted that this was the first "combat" test of the new element of the Russian space monitoring system.

The Krona system has been tested. Its ability to detect objects in non-standard orbits was confirmed,
said a military source.

He explained that the failure of the upper stage occurred “after leaving the zone of visibility of Roscosmos ground stations”, and that relaying equipment through the Luch satellites is not provided for.

The manufacturer of equipment for the complex is the company "RTI System". They explained that now the complex consists of two "nodes". One of them is located in the Caucasus, the second - in the Far East (recently commissioned).

"Krona" is part of the 821-th Main Center for the exploration of the space situation. This system combines radar and laser-optical means of monitoring space.

“The radar station constantly monitors the sky sphere, tracking all available objects. When detecting a new, its characteristics and flight parameters are determined. According to this data, a laser locator is induced on the object. The reflected signal arrives at the receiving optical telescope. Thus, the shape of the orbiter is determined. Its image and parameters are analyzed to determine the purpose of space technology, ”the material says.

Dmitry Kornev, Chief Editor of the Internet Project:

"Krona" is a unique complex of space control that has no analogues in the world. In the USA there is a system with similar tasks, but it uses other technical solutions. By detecting the upper stage, even in an emergency situation, the Krona demonstrated the high performance of Russian radar and laser-optical observation means.

Recall that the crash of the Fregat upper stage occurred on November 28. Then, when launched from the Vostochny cosmodrome, the satellite of Roshydromet Meteor-M and also 18 spacecraft were lost.

    Someone from November 28, such a fun life began .... 18 input devices .....

    It is noted that the insurance cost of Meteor amounted to 2,6 billion rubles, or $ 44,5 million. He was insured by Sogaz in a share with three companies

    By the way:

    The Chinese space agency has completely lost control of its satellite Tiangong-1. The 8,5-ton satellite will crash to Earth in a few months, moreover, in the form of deadly debris, but no one knows when and where they will fall.

      Yes, everything will burn .... it’s a satellite, it has no thermal protection for the passage of the atmosphere, fall apart and burn ...

        The accident .... was recorded by a military surveillance complex

        it was the first “combat” test of a new element of the Russian space control system.

      Well, a man with underpants over his pants probably wasn’t there, but there were explosives made in the USA right on board (if I remember correctly, three pieces). The most interesting thing is that after an unsuccessful launch, it was the Americans who said that they were satisfied with the reliability of Russian carriers and that they would not refuse Russian services. Still they should refuse, the goals have been achieved, unwanted satellites have not entered orbit, the reputation of competitors has been tarnished, in the next launch you can also arrange some sort of dirty trick.

        It was not the first time that a crash occurred when the spacecraft was over the opposite side of the ball outside the control zone of Roscosmos.
        It’s time to restore our “space flotilla” of naval command and measurement points.

          In the photo “Crowns” the antennas are directed UP, and to see where the Frigate flies they must be directed DOWN, well, or almost down, in order to consider THIS THROUGH the earth's firmament.

      Yeah. It all started when the shuttle flew over us into the unforgettable 80s, ours decided to scan it with Lidar .. So the astronauts from Amy poured into the zyuza, it made them sick and the bo-bo head was ... Then our fools burned the AES sensors -rtr ... Amy were hysterical ... I remember everyone shouting that the Soviets (then we called the Soviets, and not the Russians, as now) used anti-satellite space weapons ... Then the topic was closed and the Union collapsed so that the amy would not be hysterical. ..Here we had such "pro-pro" Brokeback rulers ... Then it turned out that they were agents of influence ... but n e infusion.
      Yes, there is something to remember about a cup of tea. drinks

    Crona "is a unique complex of control of outer space, unparalleled in the world.
    Then it pleases. And it happens that they write “has no analogues in the world”, but turns out to be just a journalistic move.

    Until Roskosmos will naughty rockets in uncontrolled directions. They started it, and fly the little dove with God, maybe it will fly somewhere. And people through the media hang noodles on the ears:
    “The satellite launched into orbit has been accepted for tracking by means of tracking.” So they accepted something that they could not find everything that they launched. Where is the global flight control and tracking system? Where is the vaunted GLONAS? Where are the military means of controlling the enemy's missile attack? Or is it all a bluff? In fact, it turns out that everything is rotten not only in Roskosmos.

    And how did she manage to peer over the crooked ground?
    From the zone of not only visibility, but also of the launch vehicle connection, she left, and the Krona saw with her laser (a joke).
    Yeah! From the Caucasus.
    She (RN) was almost under their feet.
