On Friday morning, the Rokot rocket with a block of military satellites was launched from the Plesetsk cosmodrome, RIA News.


“Rokot” with military satellites launched from Plesetsk


According to the military, the start of the carrier of the light class was held in 05.27 Moscow time with the third launcher. The rocket launch and flight tracking was carried out by means of an automated spacecraft control system of the Russian orbital group.

Two minutes after the launch, the ground-based facilities of the Space Center named after Titov of the Space Forces VKS received a rocket. A few minutes later the head of the rocket nominally separated from the second stage. Approximately in 2 hours the spacecraft will reach the calculated orbits.

This year, this is the second launch of the Rokot light carrier from the Plesetsk cosmodrome. The previous launch took place in April.

The Ministry reminded that the first “Rokot” was launched from Plesetsk in May 2000. After that, 29 launches were carried out, and about 70 satellites for various purposes were put into near-earth orbits.

The carrier was created on the basis of the intercontinental PC-18 missile as part of the conversion program. It consists of an accelerator unit (1-I and 2-I stages) and a head part consisting of a payload compartment, an intermediate compartment, a Briz-KM booster block and a fairing.

Production "Rokotov" is carried out at the enterprise Center. Khrunichev.

    Disposal is beneficial.

    The current trend is a find for the spy. Under the USSR, it was simply printed - a launch was made. (and then an incomprehensible abbreviation of letters and numbers) and the mustache, that it has become overwhelmed, let the CIA themselves guess.

      Why guess? In orbit, almost everything is already clear, and they and we have all satellites tracked, though there are all sorts of "Cosmos" that jump in orbits like bunnies

      Yes, and if some AMS to Venus or Mars couldn’t fly further than the orbit, they also reported triumphantly about the successful launch of the Cosmos No. *** satellite

    In general, it is not a lot, but the military knows better.

    This is how it was written for us and for us. In the west, everything is exactly the opposite. Take, for example, the old magazines "Space Flight" (UK) for at least the beginning of the 80s. At the end of each magazine there were 1-2 pages, which covered the launches during the month. And there were columns: the name of the satellite, its international number, orbital parameters, orbital period, overall dimensions, functionality. And they worked great with this kind of material. It was clearly determined by the dimensions and weights, as well as by the parameters of the orbit, what kind of Soviet satellite it was. Rarely was there no functionality. Most often, when it was the first launch and they have not yet decided what it is.

    And we have yes. Date and name of the satellite - "KOSMOS-XXXXX"

    This is when the satellites of the space series went. And before that, a satellite ship or heavy satellite No. XX was written

    As from Plesetsk, so "normal flight". Tighter control? Or insurance below, there is nothing to share? This is not sarcasm, just a question.

      A missile is much simpler and smaller than any Protons .. Rumble is an UR-100 ICBM from the distant 70s. They are no longer being produced, respectively, no one can physically hammer the sensor on the wrong side.

    From Plesetsk, everything takes off and then flies as it should, without emergency situations. An example should be taken.

    ... The carrier was created on the basis of the discontinued RS-18 intercontinental missile
    RB "Briz-KM" is used as the third stage of the light-class "Rokot" launch vehicle. The main engine of the RB "Breeze-KM" has the ability to be switched on repeatedly, which makes it possible to implement various schemes for launching spacecraft, including a group launch of spacecraft into one or several different orbits.

    The equipment of the Breeze-KM upper stage is capable of ensuring high accuracy of launching spacecraft into orbit, the required orientation of the payload and, if necessary, its power supply in an orbital flight lasting up to 7 hours.
