US Deploys Doomsday Satellites In Orbit

82
The Pentagon has initiated a program to deliver advanced communications satellites into orbit. These satellites are insured against a nuclear war, since they can keep in touch even in extreme conditions. The new Advanced Extremely High Frequency AEHF generation satellites will be able to communicate during a nuclear war and are resistant to electronic interference, according to the magazine Popular Mechanics.


US Deploys Doomsday Satellites In Orbit


To date, four AEHF spacecraft are in geostationary orbit, two more satellites will be launched in 2019 and 2020, for the creation of which 29,8 million dollars have been allocated.

A system of such satellites is capable of sending signals even in conditions of nuclear war, when the atmosphere is filled with charged particles emitting electromagnetic waves. Regular communication does not work in such a “noise”, however, AEHF technology increases the likelihood of a signal passing through several beams, while maintaining a special “hot line” for the White House.

In addition, the project provides for equipping satellites with additional engines and laser guns, which will help them protect themselves from a possible physical attack.

    And in Russia, in my opinion, such people have been flying for a long time and are changing their orbits strangely ..
    And you can blow up a barrel of nails in the orbits of these satellites (a very simple solution, since the days of the USSR) Oh gentlemen, you have nowhere to see the money .. Remember your SOI ..!

          After reading such major and victorious messages from my colleagues, it’s my personal head that for some reason came precisely our reports about our very presamy superweapon. It’s such a super-duper that the Jews with a smile destroy almost the entire Syrian air defense system, armed with our super-mega missiles, while losing only one plane, and the Americans defiantly wet our guys for three hours, driving them through the desert and at the same time all Mega-super Russian weapons, pulled into huge numbers in Syria, are bashfully silent and pretend that nothing terrible is happening. Where were the invincible Su-35s? Why didn’t American planes and helicopters ground the S-400 that went far from the competition? Where did the invincible megabye Russian helicopters look? And why the hell then are they needed such super-duper, if you are afraid of applying? Maybe we should not make weapons, but a new minister of defense, who will have eggs?

        It is a masterpiece". What kind of waves are these, and what kind of particles do they emit? Maybe just areas of increased ionization that violate the distribution of SW, HF.

      A barrel with nails will not be able to determine whose satellites are knocking down.
      Too much patriotism cheer on the site. But really at the moment:
      - The Americans launched a superheavy rocket, ours may be ready by 2027.
      - Almighty Shell in Syria shot down plywood UAVs already above the base, and not on the approaches. This is a jamb and how many modern UAVs would be shot down?
      - Tiger cars have not justified themselves in Syria, weak mine protection, we buy again from the Italians.
      - Su 57 - where are they? How many can actually build them, and the F-35 is sculpted and sculpted.
      - Kolomenskaya turbine on a long-term construction Admiral Gorshkov fell apart
      - Armata, Coalition - a lot of problems, therefore, only for the parade and advertising.
      Of course, everything is not so bad with the new weapons as in the 90s, but it's too early to rejoice, there are a lot of problems and we would at least not catch up, and get closer to the striped ones in terms of armaments.

        - The Americans launched a superheavy rocket, ours may be ready by 2027.
        It will be considered superheavy after the withdrawal of 64 tons at the DOE. In the meantime, only PR, PR, PR.
        And in general - the only superheavy raken is Energy. Well, maybe the Shuttle complex.
        Still, under 100 tons of REAL payload.

        - Almighty Shell in Syria shot down plywood UAVs already above the base, and not on the approaches. This is a jamb and how many modern UAVs would be shot down?
        In the last raid of "peaceful" Israelis on the "aggressive" Syrians, it was the SYRIAN shell that shot down 19 of 26 missiles. "KOSYAK", however ...

        - Tiger cars have not justified themselves in Syria, weak mine protection, we buy again from the Italians.
        Proof in the studio is weak? How much, what was purchased, where is it used ...

        - Su 57 - where are they? How many can really build them, and the F-35 is sculpted and sculpted.
        How many Sushki is for you at the FSB, there EVERYONE will tell, or maybe show.
        Tell me something else - how many B1 and B2 fly? Cool for the most I do not want! And they are already writing off. And why?
        I’ll tell you so - they would have quickly replaced the F-15 and F-16 with a Super Penguin! We would sleep better.

        - Kolomenskaya turbine on a long-term construction Admiral Gorshkov fell apart
        As far as I know, the Chinese diesel engine has collapsed, but not the point - even if the turbine. A negative result is also a result. Correct, will work even better than planned.

        - Armata, Coalition - a lot of problems, therefore, only for the parade and advertising.
        AND? The latest concept, no one has anything like it even close, naturally tested, brought to mind. Our field is not bare - the T90, T80 and T-72 and Msta can hit any aggressor in the teeth.

        Is this all YOUR EVIDENCE?
        It’s rather weak, don’t you?

          Nobody proves anything to you, you just need to take off your pink glasses and turn on your brains. If in rocket science at the time of the collapse of the USSR, we were 15-20 years ahead of the whole world, now there is no advantage. In electronics, we lag behind the stripes, this is not classified information. In other weapons, open at least Wikipedia and compare the army of the USSR and the Russian Federation, aviation, fleet, ground forces ... Until mass enlisted in the troops, we can assume that neither SU-57, nor armata, nor the coalition .... . simply no.

            Rocket science rocket science is different. If in powder rockets - this is how minke whales always had an "advantage", it still exists. But in the liquid, the most high-torque and powerful - call ... Let the BE-4 first at least once put the payload into space. Then we'll talk about who caught up with whom.

    AEHF technology increases the probability of signal transmission thanks to several beams
    Only Americans are able to spend huge sums on absurd technology, and change the "laws of physics" for the sake of advertising. I don’t know how in the USA, but in my opinion any student with a 4th degree in physics understands that the higher the frequency of the signal, the lower its penetrating ability. Therefore, AEHF 44 and 20 GHz signals, even with weak cloud cover, lose up to 50% of their power. Under ionization conditions, the power loss will be tens of decibels!

        lasers generally do not pass through clouds - they scatter. And the AEHF range just relates to the microwave.

    And you can blow up a barrel of nails in the orbits of these satellites (a very simple solution, since the days of the USSR) Oh gentlemen, you have nowhere to see the money .. Remember your SOI ..!

    A barrel with nails will not be able to determine whose satellites are knocking down.
    Too much patriotism cheer on the site. But really at the moment:
    - The Americans launched a superheavy rocket, ours may be ready by 2027.
    - Almighty Shell in Syria shot down plywood UAVs already above the base, and not on the approaches. This is a jamb and how many modern UAVs would be shot down?
    - Tiger cars have not justified themselves in Syria, weak mine protection, we buy again from the Italians.
    - Su 57 - where are they? How many can actually build them, and the F-35 is sculpted and sculpted.
    - Kolomenskaya turbine on a long-term construction Admiral Gorshkov fell apart
    - Armata, Coalition - a lot of problems, therefore, only for the parade and advertising.
    Of course, everything is not so bad with the new weapons as in the 90s, but it's too early to rejoice, there are a lot of problems and we would at least not catch up, and get closer to the striped ones in terms of armaments.


    And where does the cheers and patriotism?

    And in Russia, in my opinion, such people have been flying for a long time and are changing their orbits strangely.

    If such fly, Vitalik, but they "strangely do not change their orbits." They, like the Americans, weigh on the geostationary

    And you can blow up a barrel of nails in the orbits of these satellites (a very simple solution, since the days of the USSR) Oh gentlemen, you have nowhere to see the money .. Remember your SOI ..!

    Yes, one near-minded person once spoke about nails and all. now war in space without the use of nails is no longer perceived by many.
    And for a barrel with nails blown up in this orbit Americans will reward you with their highest order and put you a 10-meter monument. In gratitude, After all, you will do something that would be difficult for them to do. Destroy the space segment SPRN Russia. And we won’t learn about the start of American missiles not in 10-15 seconds, but when they overcome half the way

    Tell me, do I have one feeling that the USA has been peddling in its spending? Such a feeling of mass insanity.

    Why madness. Maybe they sometimes go too far with prices, but they would hardly be spending on absolutely unnecessary weapons. As for the passage of radio waves in an indignant atmosphere - but our perimeter command missiles also transmit (will transmit) commands in the same situation. So it's possible

      Well with a barrel of nails. I was still joking (although there is such a strategy. 0)
      But seriously, we are scared in Russia and more than once. and we won’t be able to untwist an arms race in space once again .. We have something to answer and THIS IS MAIN!
      I’m still for a tank fist .. Already a hundred will get to the Atlantic and wash the tracks in the ocean! Having avenged ALL of us!

    New satellites of the AEHF generation (Advanced Extremely High Frequency) will be able to provide communications during a nuclear war and are resistant to electronic interference, reports Popular Mechanics.
    it remains only to clarify between whom will provide communication, between satellite 1 and satellite 2?
    the project provides for equipping satellites with additional engines and laser guns
    I believe that nuclear power plants. Success in the cut.

        In near-Earth space, several or several dozen explosions of ordinary shrapnel charges will solve everything. The main thing is that there should be more fragments, but they overlap all the orbits for the satellites.
