Military Review

Will the Nudol knock down the GPS satellite?

150

Has Russia already won the arms race?


In the comments under my articles, I often see statements by people who are so sure of the miraculous properties of the latest Russian military developments that they are absolutely convinced of the impossibility of an attack on Russia. Therefore, when I touch upon military-economic issues, such people allow themselves ridicule. They, as a rule, cannot be convinced of anything: they have only a tinned throat for all counterarguments.




However, I was always interested in how such a worldview is formed and in what way. And here one of my friends on Facebook gave me the opportunity to satisfy my research curiosity.

It was a short record, I will give it in its entirety (without editing. - Ed.), Because it really perfectly demonstrates the cuisine in which "cheers-patriotism" is cooked:
Russia has tested Nudol - a missile capable of disarming the NATO army. The US government is alarmed by the successful tests of the Russian Nudol rocket, which is capable of destroying absolutely any satellite of a potential rival in Earth’s orbit. American analysts have prepared documents stating that Nudol flew 2000 km in just 15 minutes. Yes, not just flying, but hit the target.
The Pentagon is at a loss, because if these missiles come into service with the Russian army, then several of these missiles will be enough to completely disarm the NATO army. For this, Russia does not need to spend a lot of energy, just shoot down several satellites in orbit of the Earth. After that, the American army will be left without any connection.
The Russian Defense Ministry said that in the near future Nudol will be put into service with the Russian army, and they will only be designed to shoot down satellites that endanger the country. Unlike the United States, Russia has no selfish goals, it just wants to protect itself. Once again, the Russian Federation proves in practice that the second side comes out the winner in the arms race between the US and the Russian Federation.


Miracle rocket


So far, little is known about the new A-235 Nudol rocket due to the fact that this is the latest development to be tested (on 30 on August 2019, a test launch took place at the Sary-Shagan training ground), and therefore its characteristics have not been disclosed.

According to Western estimates, a missile of this type can hit targets in space within a radius of about 1500 km from the start and at an altitude of up to 800 km. Probably, these estimates are close to the truth, since a comparison with existing missiles is usually used to assess the capabilities of new missiles. Even the geometrical dimensions of a rocket can provide some idea of ​​its capabilities. That is, a rocket can destroy a satellite in low Earth orbit.

The propagandists of "cheers-patriotism" rub their hands: since a rocket can bring down something in space, it means that it can be shot down by any satellite. And if it can bring down, then several of these missiles can bring down communication satellites or GPS, the US army will lose communication and navigation. Hooray, the enemy is crushed to dust!

It will not reach satellites


The whole problem, however, is that the communication satellites are in geostationary orbit. For example, the USA-243 satellite, the military communications satellite of the WGS (Wireband Global SATCOM) series, launched in May 2013, is accessing the GSO at an altitude of 35786 km. Satellites of the NAVSTAR system, which supports the GPS system, rotate in circular orbits at an altitude of 20180 km.


Visualization of the orbits of the GPS satellites (on the diagram on the left)


The capabilities of the A-235 will not be enough to deliver a warhead to this orbit sufficient to guarantee the destruction of a rather large communications or navigation satellite. Let's say that to throw 730 kg payload on GSO requires a rocket comparable to the Japanese H-II missile, with a launch weight of 289 tons. “Nudol” is much more modest: according to published data, its starting weight is 9,6 tons. So, “Nudol” will simply not reach the communication and navigation satellites.

A warhead designed to bring down satellites on a GSO should, in fact, be a full-fledged satellite capable of maneuvering in order to carry out maneuvers of approaching a target satellite at a distance at which it can be effectively destroyed by kinetic striking elements. That is, the head part should have orientation engines and fuel supply. Also needed control and navigation devices, a battery for on-board systems. All together - this is 200-300 kg of weight or so. Therefore, the missile for hitting communications and navigation satellites should be larger than Nudol.


The navigation satellite is a fairly large device. GPS-IIF has a mass of 1,6 tons


At least a hundred rockets


This could be the end. However, it is also worth mentioning that as part of the NAVSTAR satellite constellation, there is an 32 satellite, and as part of the WGS, there are 9 satellites and another was launched in March 2019 of the year. In addition, the United States has the previous DSCS satellite communications system, in which several more satellites operate (in 2015 - 7). That is, you need about 20 successful hits in order for the US Army to begin serious problems with satellite communications and navigation.

In addition, the United States and its allies have other satellite auxiliary systems that can act as a substitute for GPS. For example, this is the Japanese QZSS as part of 4 satellites (it is planned to launch three more satellites before 2023), which now acts as a GPS signal correction system in the Western Pacific, but may, according to some information, work autonomously. The Japanese navy is equipped with signal receivers of this system.

So "knock down several satellites" (even in the case of the technical feasibility of this) is far from enough to deprive the enemy of communications and navigation. It will take an order of magnitude more starts and hits. It seems that in order to be able to destroy the enemy’s satellite systems with a certain guarantee (that is, taking into account misses, abnormal detonations and attempts at counteraction), one needs to have at least 100 missiles specially designed for hitting satellites on the GSO on alert duty. Attacking communication and navigation satellites is not as simple an operation as it might seem at first glance. And it’s possible to carry it out precisely not with the Nudol missile, which is intended, apparently, as a missile for intercepting ballistic targets in space, that is, nuclear warheads.

A few words about propaganda


Now back to the cited "cheers-patriotic" propaganda. The reference information now available to everyone and everyone clearly shows that its main components are exaggeration and colorful rhetoric. The exaggerations are very significant and, in general, designed for the public, which, by the level of their knowledge in specific issues, simply will not suspect a trick, will not specify whether it is so or not, and will take a word. Exaggerations cling to exaggerations along the chain: "a rocket can shoot down a satellite," "a rocket can shoot down absolutely any satellite," "rockets will deprive the US of communications and navigation." And all this is framed by appropriate rhetoric. Further, under the influence of such propaganda, this audience will have a reinforced concrete conviction that Russia will divide the United States with just a couple of missile launches, and in general there is no need to worry about anything, victory is in your pocket.

Clash with reality can be shocking and breaking the psyche for them. And on the day of "M" it will be possible to observe a striking picture of the transformation of yesterday's brave "cheers-patriots" into the latest whiners and defeatists.

        The author wrote that the Nudol missile missile would not reach the GPC satellite, but did not write at what altitude they are located, and this is no less than 20 km. The Nudol missile has a different purpose, the fight is not with enemy satellites, but with ballistic missiles, with their warheads. Nudol is a missile defense, not a PKO.

          The collapse of the USSR was a nightmare scenario for Americans, that's why they helped with loans from the mid-80s, after rapprochement of countries. Their concerns concerned the proliferation of nuclear weapons. But the USSR collapsed due to the insanity and idiocy of the Politburo. They would introduce farming, small business and private property in the early 80s, as the Chinese did, would not have come to any collapse, since there would have been no problems with a shortage of clothes, furniture, food, and other little things.

      They have mined a man, but he is essentially right. The article is clearly ordered, just according to the manual. A classic of the genre, a man who loves his Fatherland, reads the news about "Nudol" (of course, it is retouched - this is done everywhere) and begins to throw up his cap and bow in front of a portrait of Putin. Of course, he has no brains and critical analysis, this is a cattle-patriot, right? Whether the case the "great technical expert" Leonid Gozman, who has publicly stated that all of Putin's recent statements about Russian military-technical innovations are fiction. He knows better, although if you ask this "expert" ten regular technical questions, he will not answer any of them. fool The author of the article is the same Gozman. Dmitry Verkhoturov - you either put on your underpants or take off your cross... If your article is in the technical format "Armament", then remove the chapter "A few words about propaganda" from it and do not consider VO readers as mentally underdeveloped.

      He says everything correctly. There are laws of physics and materials that so far have nothing to replace. By the size of the rocket, one can quite accurately judge its capabilities. For 50 years, they have been driven on protons into space and it is still considered one of the best. By size, knowing the energy of the fuel, one can judge the performance characteristics of the rocket. And the size of the nudol is clearly not enough to bring at least one kilogram of weight into low orbit. According to the ballistic trajectory, it may well rise to a height of 800 km, well, maybe 1000 km maximum. This is not enough. by the way. The United States, China and India have already shot down satellites, but they were satellites in low orbit, about 300 km.

      TTX of the Nudol rocket, like any other, is measured with a tape measure, and even if the error is 2-3 times, then for the defeat of the satellite on the GSO its parameters do not reach 10 times!

      Good question. That is, it will turn out already a rocket with two steps. If interested, you can see how the rockets flying into space differ from each other. See that the difference between the heaviest and the lightest is not so great. This is because there are limits on both sides. Lighter than the lightest one simply does not have enough strength to reach the orbit, and the very heavy one simply cannot take it off the ground. Take a look at the topic, everything is simple there. But I don’t want to write much. )))

    I may be mistaken, but the spacecraft on the GSO figuratively hangs in one place. The distance to it, albeit an average of 25000 km, is also not small, but it is essentially motionless, unable to maneuver, such a standing target. What prevents the combat module from delivering to it ? The upper stage, the second stage for working outside the atmosphere, and the third stage are the actual combat module of the killer. To catch and destroy the module is the enemy’s task, which means that the characteristics of the anti-missile should be an order of magnitude higher, which in my opinion is simply not technically feasible, before you chase after the killer of satellites, it is necessary to calculate this killer, to classify it, to make a decision, to launch. And this time, even if it is relatively small 5 ... 10 minutes. but then it’s also necessary to catch up! The only question is whether there really are such anti-geostationary

      I don’t want to upset you, but in space to get from point A to point B you can’t move in a straight line, only in a parabola. I am not aware of modern technical capabilities, is it possible to move along a hyperbolic trajectory, this requires speeds an order of magnitude higher, but not as straight as possible. And the fact that the object is above your head at an altitude of 35786 km. it seems motionless so you do not forget, you also move in space with respect to it with equal speed or acceleration, forgive me forgets.

      The deployment of satellite fighters (IS) on Earth is problematic. To fly to the GSO, you need a minimum of a Soyuz-2a, or Flight-3 class rocket, and, accordingly, a spaceport for their launch. At the beginning of 3 MV all space centers will be destroyed, however, as well as mine installations.
      Therefore, the IS must be placed in advance, before the start of 3 MB, in the orbits of long-term storage, and disguised as garbage. IPs must provide long-term uptime on standby. At the command of the Earth, to wake up, make an orbital maneuver of the transition to the GSO, and begin to shoot the adversary’s satellites with homing BG ... Something like that.

The meaning is this - at hour X, after confirmation from the defense network, the group of "survey satellites" begins to "inspect" all spacecraft and "space debris" that are not related to their own group. If there is someone to correct the program - the person will participate, no - the "inspectors" will act according to the established algorithms and will automatically clean up the orbits until their own resource is exhausted.

      Okay, everyone is silent then I will say. The problem of satellites has long been no longer a problem for us. Back in the USSR, we tested a ground-based laser, with a small satellite power, which greatly alarmed the United States. After all, the satellite does not have to be destroyed so that it shatters into pieces. It is enough to simply disable its equipment, and it is very sensitive. The matrix of cameras is easily burned out with a laser, but in general, other systems do not tolerate it very well, especially modern ones, using 7-14 nm technologies. Therefore, on our satellites they use mainly 130 nm. A compromise, and quite fast and more stable. Currently, a giant laser facility is being built in Sarov. It is quite enough to remove all satellites from our geostationary orbit. And those that are not at the GSO sooner or later will still fly over our territory. And besides, we have just jammers. In general, they have been dealing with the problem for a long time. )))

        a giant laser plant is being built in Sarov

        Laser installation (LU) as an anti-satellite weapon has its drawbacks:
        1. At the beginning of the war, it will be destroyed first, because gigantic. And most likely before the start of work, because we are not the first to attack.
        2. To operate the laser on a satellite in GSO, or simply in high orbit, a multi-pulse mode is required, because It is impossible to direct and keep the beam at a distance of 36 km due to atmospheric fluctuations and spacecraft evasion maneuvers. Accordingly, the work time for each satellite will be, according to my estimates, several tens of minutes. This is a lot, it will take hundreds of hours to destroy 000 objects.
        3. For the operation of the satellite laser, the absence of clouds and precipitation is required. Therefore, experimental laser systems were installed in high mountain regions. The laser that you mention, according to rumors, beat from the Pamirs.
        4. Very difficult countermeasures.
        Based on all of the above, the strategists of the 80s decided to pull the LA into orbit (Pole - Energy).

    So who to argue with? Nudol is ABM, that is, Anti-Missile Defense, not anti-satellite.
    The victims of the exam cannot explain the difference between a low, almost circular, and highly elliptical orbit. Astronomy was removed from the school course.
    About Kepler’s laws with two focal points of the orbit, who will remember now ?!
    And the fact that "Nudol" is sharpened for blocks of ballistic missiles on a downward trajectory - no one will remember about this at all!
    And precisely in this is the uniqueness of the rocket - the target is no longer moving according to the laws of celestial mechanics, it is already in the atmosphere, although very discharged!

              yes, only if you studied field theory, you should know how the field intensity changes with distance "maybe the inverse square law will tell you something", this is not a directed coherent beam, I think for a hundred kilometers, even in a vacuum, the radiation intensity will not be much more than usual cosmic background and in general, how do you think the hub looks at the stars if gamma radiation should have killed its matrix for a long time, especially since this is not just a flash, but a constant stream of such particles, the energy of which even the tank did not dream of. and yes, the optical matrix is ​​most sensitive precisely to visible light, for high gamma radiation even a crystal grating is not an obstacle, and you have not wondered why x-rays are taken? because most tissues are transparent for him, and he is not particularly absorbed by them, and the shorter the wavelength, the more photons will pass through the crystal lattice and only some direct collisions can change the energy of atoms, and if we take into account the decrease in the radiation density with distance, then over a hundred kilometers it will turn out to be very low, not to mention your 10 thousand km .. and the damaging factors Yao are very exaggerated by the media

    Despite the relevance of the topic of the article, the silly form of its submission by the author is not clear. A kind of attempt with banter with elements of trolling. The author, if he himself belonged to an objectively minded category of citizens, he would understand that the Internet community has long been divided into two approximately equal in number camps: cheers and patriots. Both those and others do not shine with knowledge of the topic, but compensate for this with boiling energy and reciprocal revenue (getting lost in flocks and attacking single opponents). These two camps have been fighting for a long time with their victories and losses) And only a very small part of the audience give more or less balanced estimates.
    This is a pragmatic picture. It is a pity that the author forgot about it and climbed into this confrontation.

    Quote: Dmitry Potapov
    The author, and if theoretically, "Nudol" acts as an upper stage, delivering other rockets into orbit that continue to move on according to the principle of "Dagger" and MIG-31?

    Unfortunately not. Well, in-1 "Nudol" is a system MISSILE DEFENSEdesigned entirely for other tasks.
    Secondly, the mass-dimensional characteristics of this rocket will hardly make it possible to launch something very heavy into low orbit, which can then be used according to the MIG-DAGGER principle. Even "Proton" with its almost 2 tons of launch weight is capable of throwing a satellite onto the geostationary solely with the help of the upper stage and for a fairly long period of time

    Quote: E.S.
    And who promised to shoot down satellites on GSO Nudolya ???
    This is of course a good way to attribute to the opponent an idiotic thesis and refute it with brilliance, but here it is somehow even without brilliance, for example, an estimate of the required weight to be cast is not clear from where.
    And, yes, we saw a picture of an expert turning into a pumpkin on Day 8.8.8. on the example of gr. Felgenhauer, who promised Georgian tanks almost in Volgograd

    The most interesting thing, Sergey, I perfectly understand the author of the article and what prompted him to write this article. Itself several times read such opuses, where in all seriousness the question of the possibility of destroying the satellites of the navigation system by "Nudol" was considered. You know how everything happens here. We learned about the real range of "Caliber" - almost dozens of articles about who and where we can hit. And the headlines to match - "Caliber" will sweep the American fleet from the vastness of the oceans "(and the like)." Dagger "appeared - there were hurray-patriotic" articles "that it was a" supervunderwaffe "against which the Americans had no protection. "Vanguard", "Poseidon", "Zircon". And become like a blueprint. The authors of such articles did not even take the trouble to deal with the topic they are writing about. So with "Nudol" the same thing

    Quote: NEXUS
    The author, not even knowing approximately the technical characteristics of Nudol, talks about some heights, ranges and capabilities of this missile defense. A very strange article ... which warhead will the A-235 carry? What is the principle of intercepting a target? With bcc or thanks to the bullet-in-bullet system? What is actually known in fact about the A-235 really? What is there to talk about?

    About performance characteristics "Nudoli", Andrey, can be judged by indirect signs. In particular, about the range. Nobody bothers to apply the empirical formulas of the ratio of the height of the defeat and the range in order to understand what are approximately the characteristics in terms of RANGE and REACH. In addition, it is unlikely that something massively changed in the missile defense launchers of the A-135M system. The whole Internet would be buzzing about this and there would be dozens, if not hundreds of photos. After all, there are photographs of the bases of the same "Peresvetov", but from the anti-missile defense zone - silence. Grave. Therefore, one can indirectly judge about some performance characteristics and about the dimensions of the "product"
    What warhead will the A-235 carry? It is difficult to say, but there were a lot of publications, which is not excluded and kinetic interception. Especially on 53T6M products. Nevertheless, nuclear explosions over its own territory, albeit at an altitude and low power, are still not ice, as they say. The principle of interception of goals? And something changes on what the warhead is, well, unless in one case a certain slip is allowed, but in the other case not.
    In fact, enough is known about the entire system. And in principle, you can reason. And the author raised the correct question, in the sense of giving us materials about the next system "unparalleled"

    Quote: O. Bender
    I may be mistaken, but the spacecraft on the GSO figuratively hangs in one place. The distance to it, albeit 25000 km on average, is also not small, but it is essentially motionless, unable to maneuver, such a standing target.

    Not figuratively speaking, but in reality they are motionless relative to a point on the surface of the Earth.
    The range to them is not an average of 25000 km, but 36000 km. Dimensions Well, still relatively small. Most often, a navigation satellite is a cube with SB panels and antennas. At least two faces of the cube have dimensions up to 3 meters. Not without the possibility of maneuvering. There is an engine and some fuel supply, and there have been cases when such a satellite changed its standing point. But in this case, his orbit is circular, about 20 km

    Quote: O. Bender
    What prevents delivering a combat module to it? The upper stage, the second stage for working outside the atmosphere, and the third stage are the actual killer combat module.

    In principle, nothing interferes. Well, maybe only "convention". Remember what happened in Arbatov when Panikovsky, violating the "convention" instead of Mordovia, invaded the feeding area of ​​Shura Balaganov. laughing
    Each of the parties is allocated certain standing points at the geostationary station and an attempt to place something near in-1 will lead to the satellite’s withdrawal, and in-2 will lead to scandal if this is repeated many times

    Quote: O. Bender
    To catch and destroy the module is the enemy’s task, which means that the characteristics of the anti-missile should be an order of magnitude higher, which, in my opinion, is simply not technically feasible, because before you chase the killer of satellites, you must figure out the killer, te classify it, make a decision, make start.

    Technically possible, but very expensive. This will not be a certain anti-missile, but a full-fledged launch vehicle, and I’m afraid that it’s a heavy class. Others may simply not have enough throwing weight. In addition, we and they launch satellites into various orbits. We are most often with an inclination of the order of 40-50 degrees, they are of the order of 30. To overcome this, change the inclination of the orbit and it takes a lot of resources. And detection and classification - this has long been done by all space powers, at least by Russia (USSR) and the USA - is exactly 100%

    Quote: O. Bender
    And this time, even if relatively small 5 ... 10 min. but then it’s also necessary to catch up! The only question is whether there really are such anti-geostationary

    Well, about 10 minutes, I think you’re in a bit of a hurry. Approximately as much will take the launch into orbit. Plus a flight to the desired orbit (not in a straight line). So it’s very, very difficult, practically impossible to shoot down a satellite in high orbits, and even more so at a geostationary ballistic missile. unless pre-deduced killer satellites can be used, but even then, the enemy should not be underestimated

    Quote: Mantrid
    in order to bring down satellites, the USSR was developing the Energy / Skiff link (the demonstrator was, Pole), this program needs to be reanimated. Although maybe Nudol is it it, or something similar?

    In addition to Skif, the USSR also had anti-satellite systems, the so-called. ISs - satellite fighters. It is not yet realistic to revive the Energy-Skif program. The carrying capacity of the carriers will need at least 70-80 tons, which is not yet available, except in the distant future
    "Nudol" is not the same, and not even similar. This is a long-range intercept missile. But intercepting warheads, not satellites

    Quote: Amateur
    with a target satellite at a distance at which it can be effectively destroyed by kinetic damaging elements.

    And why kinetic? And not high-explosive or cumulative? recourse recourse

    High or cumulative? In space ??? Okay, they would have written another fragmentation warhead, it would be at least understandable, but explosive and cumulative in space - this is not even funny ...

      No, I wasn’t in a hurry, and the time was 10 minutes, I indicated it as the time needed to make a decision on destruction, that is, BEFORE the launch. And yet, yes, still flying time to the target. And about the violation of the conventions, if the decision to destroy goals, then the dismantling stage is over and landing is already a consequence and not a cause.

    The capabilities of the A-235 will not be enough to deliver a warhead to this orbit, sufficient to ensure the destruction of a fairly large communications or navigation satellite. For example, a missile comparable to the Japanese H-II missile with a launch weight of 730 tons is required to deliver 289 kg of payload to the GSO. "Nudol" is much more modest: according to published data, its launch weight is 9,6 tons. So "Nudol" will simply not reach the communication and navigation satellites
    So I'm wondering how the SM-3 Block IIA with a mass of 1500 kg flies to an altitude of 1500 km and Nudol with a mass of 9,6 tons flies to an altitude of up to 800 km?

          Missile production is carried out by the Boeing Integrated Defense Systems division. A missile is a three-stage solid-fuel carrier, designed to bring into the near-Earth space a kinetic interceptor - the main striking element of the system. The length of the rocket is 16,8 meters, the curb weight is 12,7 tons.

          At the first stage of the rocket, the Alliant Tech Orion 50SXLG solid-fuel engine was installed with a thrust of 441 KN, the second - Alliant Tech Orion 50XL with a thrust of up to 153 KN and the third - Alliant Tech Orion 38, with a thrust of 32 KN. The estimated range of the rocket varies depending on the height of the trajectory and ranges from 2000 to 5500 km. Maximum launch height - 2000 km

    Strategic weapons will decide everything: nuclear weapons, missile defense and missile defense.
    But no one will dare to use nuclear weapons, the missile defense system will accordingly operate on low-orbit satellites (Nudol and S-400 (rumored)), and the main battle will be high in the sky on anti-satellite systems ...

It’s enough to shoot down only those that are above our territory at the time of the missile attack, so that cruise missile aiming systems switch to inertial tracking. And so on throughout the list of threats.

      According to Western estimates, a missile of this type can hit targets in space within a radius of about 1500 km from the start and at an altitude of up to 800 km. Probably, these estimates are close to the truth, since a comparison with existing missiles is usually used to assess the capabilities of new missiles. Even the geometrical dimensions of a rocket can provide some idea of ​​its capabilities. That is, a rocket can destroy a satellite in low Earth orbit.
      You don’t need to know anything else about the quality of the author’s analytics ... evaluates the TTX product of which, under the signature of OB, based on data from the brazen Western media, I doubt that even their intelligence knows the TTX of the rocket ...

And Petrel (that RPS that shone under the belly of the MiG-31) - too. And 77H6 from C-500. And a number of other anti-satellite systems, too. For spacecraft in orbits up to the GSO, other means are intended. As for the GPS SNS KA - they do not need to be knocked down either. With them, EW does what it wants.

      GPS satellites will have to be beaten, including to bring the national economy of the adversary into a state of stupor without the use of nuclear weapons. This is in the preparatory period before the war. EW does not help here, its action is local.
      Calculations show that for partial GPS failure, it is necessary to destroy about 40% of the spacecraft. For guaranteed - 60%.

Therefore, the war will begin with a massive strike by all nuclear weapons, including space nuclear weapons, paralyzing GPS and other radio facilities at the right time. Whoever hits first will have more population and technology left.

    Will Nudol bring down a satellite ..?
    .
    To incapacitate a satellite, it is enough to bring a charge of 10 grams to it. Therefore, theoretically, any multi-stage system can do this. Here the question is not to missiles, but to guidance and control systems. In principle, even a MIG-31 rocket weighing a couple of tons can reach a satellite in geostationary orbit. We put 100 kg into orbit, at geostationary 10, 1 kg unit gets to the satellite, 100 grams explode - the Sabbath. It’s even easier for Nudoli, but the Americans, through their agents and grant pumps, will not allow us to develop appropriate technologies.

    If you brought 100 kg to DOE, then you won’t bring anything from the word at the geostationary station. Not to mention that 100 g of the piece will explode. And what will she do ??? The satellite will scare ???

      even if it demolishes part of the antenna, or slightly "corrects", after which the satellite becomes useless and "frightened", but in your calculations a mistake is a checker too much, to hit even a bare taxiway at those speeds is already a cloud of a pair of two vehicles, and for a normal elliptical orbit you need half the energy than for the GSO, which makes a big difference.

        [Quote]for ordinary elliptical orbit[/ Quote]
        The target will perform a maneuver of evasion, collapse and deploy solar panels, change the albedo, there will be no radio guidance in conditions of war from the Earth.
        Then it will be necessary to equip the IS with a full-fledged homing system + powerful approach and orientation energy along all axes with the corresponding fuel supply, for an intermediate orbit correction you will need a rather powerful long-range radar that can hit somewhere over 5 km. + to her a source of energy. How do you imagine that?
        And is it all one-time, for one purpose? An elliptical orbit will allow you to attack only one target at a time.

    The article "smiled" with its illiteracy, and unsuccessful attempts to compare the incomparable ... 300-400kg to "shoot down" a 300-400kg satellite, it turns out to knock out a tank, by this "analogy" we need a PTO weighing 50 tons? and in order to shoot down a globmaster weighing 300 tons, will we have to build a pepelats with a similar weight? and there is no other way, according to the author. An apparatus of 300-400kg on the GSO is already some kind of spacedreadnought, which will be able to systematically cut everything in its path. Unlike communication satellites, he does not need huge batteries, kilowatts of power in antennas, but a space-grinder will be enough, and he can already be next to the victim apparatus. But the owner of the device will strongly oppose.

    And, yes, Nudol is a missile defense system, but not an anti-satellite weapon, as everyone here noted.

    Well, it seems like it’s technically turned out to be much simpler and cheaper to jam or distort the satellite signal at the scene.

    It is still about destroying satellites. And yes, signal distortion is probably easier to achieve than destroying a GPS satellite

    Duc has recently been such a scandal .. about the Russian satellites for cleaning orbits. the states shouted about the evil Russian satellites dropping from their orbits, and ours denied that they said they were cleaning up the garbage. no exact data. conspiracy theology so far ...

    Particular but yes

    Quote: SanichSan
    I would be very surprised if there is no project for launching containers with striking elements into their orbit. I think they also have a similar project. in a couple of weeks in orbit, debris will fly instead of satellites.

    Frankly speaking, it doesn't make much sense. The density of the paralyzing elements can be such that more than one satellite will pass between them calmly. One thing is the scheme according to which our ISs operated. That is, an approach to a distance of about 1 km to the satellite and detonation of a warhead of about 15 thousand balls. Targeted undermining. And another thing is to "spray" a container with submunitions. At random

    Well, "Petrel". let's not talk about them for now. When at least there are successful tests announced, then we'll talk. It is very difficult to hit with the same "petrels" at the same time

    Our media quite often write something that needs to be divided in the mind by ten, or even more. And even complete nonsense, and not only on military topics. Not so long ago Glance wrote Russia builds new ships to develop the Arctic, where in an enthusiastic manner he said that the Vostochnaya Verf shipyard in Primorye launched a tanker with a deadweight of 1600 tons. News as news, and for Vostochny Shipyard, which has never built anything larger than 1000 tons before, this is truly an achievement. The view “from this concludes that the Russian shipbuilding industry is in the leading world positions:This event is of great importance not only for the development of the domestic shipbuilding industry and the development of the Northern Sea Route. It shows Russia's technological superiority in this area.... Yes, only from the article it becomes known that the laying (start of construction) took place already in 2015. That is, the construction has been going on for 5 years already, and "launched" does not mean that it has already been accepted by the customer. Judging by the photos from the scene, the tanker has no superstructure yet, which means there are no ship rooms, cabins, a bridge with all the equipment ... in short, there is still plowing and plowing. The author of the article is unaware that the article is, in fact, an example of anti-advertising, because in neighboring China a ship of such characteristics would be built in 7-8 months. True, the order came from our MO, and it is in a hurry.

    On the one hand, the article is very interesting, but on the other hand there are no official performance characteristics of Nudol yet, there are a couple of videos with his smart start from the mine. So we will wait for its adoption.

    to shoot down satellites, there are inspectors, maneuvering satellites, just satellites and banal "buckets of bolts" that can be scattered in the appropriate orbits with any civilian rocket ... and on the ground there is a railroad for cutting down the jeepies. Cho to come up with all sorts of chukhnya about the shooting down of antimissile satellites and then write what kind of jeepies is very powerful. an hour after the start of the war, it will be fought by survivors after using yao .. in a severe bayonet attack, and a week later by hungry civilians with each other on fists and sticks
