The general leadership of the launch was carried out by the Commander of the Space Forces - Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Aerospace Force Alexander Golovko.

“All prelaunch operations and the launch of the Proton-M launch vehicle were in normal mode. The ground-based automated control complex monitored the launch and flight of the launch vehicle. The exact start time is 1.12 Moscow time, ”the message says.

The press service added that "in 1: 22 Moscow time, the head of the Proton-M" as part of the upper stage "Briz-M" with a spacecraft launched in the interests of the Russian Ministry of Defense, was regularly separated from the third stage of the launch vehicle. "

It is also noted that the removal of the spacecraft into the calculated orbit with the help of the Briz-M upper stage will take several hours.

    Well, finally, to further develop unmanned technology for the military without a global information coverage is simply not possible.

      In the USSR they knew how to build cosmodromes, were engaged in business, and did not compose the Laws "On logging". And for the theft of state. the property was shot. winked

    It seems that the cosmodromes themselves have enough and everything is exactly launched from Baikonur ...

      Apparently their spaceports are busy preparing for other launches. We have military satellites in orbit, in the sphere of what is happening in Syria, now oh how they are needed!

      there is a proton launch pad in one place on the planet - on Baikonur. And the protons will be launched until the 50th year while the lease will be valid. By that time, the heavy hangar should go into series with a decrease in the launch cost - and there is already a table for it on Vostochny.

        Roman, manned launches are planned to be transferred to Soyuz-5 (analogue of Zenith) from 25g. Russia this year will transfer two starts. Zenit Kazakhstan - due to it will be their modernization (more than 245 million). The fact is that one table is emergency after an emergency and they both decided to put in order. Recently there was a message that work is underway on Soyuz-5. Payload up to 18t. hi

      Plesetsk under the Unions is imprisoned. Yes, and the load there is much less. And the East under the Angara and the Union was built.

      If the "proton" and even with the "Breeze", then, most likely, something in a high, possibly geostationary orbit. Could be communication or navigation.
      And if it’s low, then something heavy, maybe three bags of small satellites.

      Not his. There are no launch complexes for Proton.

      a proton launch pad is only in Baikonur. LVs that are used in Plesetsk simply by mass are most likely unable to derive such PNs. Well, to build a Proton table at the cosmodrome under the old, albeit modernized, Proton rocket will significantly increase the cost of launches and, as a result, will equalize it with a heavy Angara - which is pointless.

      missiles are marching personally on Putin’s campaign with the Medvedevs; they’ll also upload the crooked software at night in upper stages. do not write nonsense - whom do not put on top of Roscosmos the result will be the same. The lack of highly qualified personnel is now in many sectors of the national economy. In fact, astronautics is born again - it is the new generation of specialists in this and other sectors that has a present and a future. And the gap formed in the saints of the 90s in no way magically compensated. The failure of a lack of specialists now and in the coming years is an echo of those very years.

    Previously, it sounded like for the purposes of the national economy. :) That's right. These are exactly what satellites need to be launched.
    But Rogozin expressed a strange compliment towards the mask, such as we are ashamed, but we will borrow from him. It turns out a piece of trampoline Rogozin himself will take back. And this is alarming and very strong.

    Table on the East for the "Angara" is not yet. There still in this respect the horse did not roll. Table for the "Angara" is only in Plesetsk

    There is nothing particularly significant. A communications satellite has been launched. The second of a series of 4 satellites. Brought to geostationary. It will simply be used in the interests of the Moscow Region, not civil society organizations.

    And it dawned on him that his mistake on the trampoline was of no interest to anyone in the world, except for the inhabitants of Russia. Mask has something to learn, at least in the lan of the fact that a private trader makes an orbit. And not a state like ours. And by the way, this private trader this year is going to launch a few less than its own missiles than Russia its
    Maybe even now, progress will begin in supporting companies that are ready to build and launch ultra-light carriers.

      False, the Blagovest satellites have a dual purpose and civilian too. A trampoline was offered to American astronauts; if they had entered then, they would have jumped on it for five years.

    This is another matter, otherwise there are no sites, toxic fuel, but do not care - we must have launched it. fellow A good Proton rocket would be more likely to launch. good

    More often than not. “Protons” mainly come with commercial loads, and recently, due to an accident and problems with engines, the clientele could “migrate” to competitors. Yes, and HZ, how many launches of "Protons" agreed with Kazakhstan
