The Falcon 9 rocket launched into orbit the GPS III satellite for the US Air Force

96

Today in the United States, the launch of the Falcon 9 launch vehicle took place from the Cosmodrome at Cape Canaveral. It launched the third-generation GPS III satellite into orbit.


A message about this appeared on the official website of SpaceX.

The launch of Falcon 9 took place at 16.10 Eastern time. The rocket went into space from the 40th launch pad.

The satellite, which the Falcon 9 heavy rocket launched into orbit, weighs 3,8 tons. He will be the third in the global positioning system. In the future, it is planned to create a constellation of 32 such satellites.



Gradually, they will replace their predecessors, which provided a GPS signal around the globe. The satellite constellation currently in orbit allows you to determine the coordinates of objects with an accuracy of 3-10 meters. New devices are capable of doing this at least three times more accurately.

In addition, GPS III is better suited to combat interference than its predecessors. Its signal suppression protection is eight times more efficient.

New satellites are released by the American company Lockheed Martin. Each of them costs $ 577 million and can be operated for 15 years.

The operator of the GPS system, which is used around the world, is the US Air Force.

      The mass to be thrown is highly dependent on the target orbit.
      For comparison, Falcon-9 and Proton-M
      Falcon-9 without returning the stage (With the return of minus 30% to the load)
      DOE 22.8 tons
      GPO 8.3 tons

      Proton-M with an acceleration block Breeze-M
      DOE 22.4 tons
      GPO 6.3 tons

      PS: Well, the mass is indicated incorrectly in the news
      Named GPS III SV03, 9505 lb (4,311 kga) the satellite is part of a family of satellites known as GPS III

          There is no contradiction here. GPO and SSVE are not the same thing. The carrying capacity of "Proton-M" at the secondary vocational education system is exactly 6,5 tons (http://www.khrunichev.ru/main.php?id=42). Here, the chip is enclosed in a very large eccentricity of the elliptical supersynchronous transitional orbit; less energy is required to hit it. The diagram below shows this clearly.
          The bold line marks the Intelsat-31 orbit (http://www.russianspaceweb.com/intelsat-31.html).

            And who told you about the "contradiction"? In the next launch, Proton-M is to transfer 4 kg directly to the GSO with additional satellite output due to its electric rocket engines.

      3 starts in June. This year, Musk can really become # 1 in the world, ahead of even China (13 are now successful in China and 11 in Mask).

      As for weight, these are high orbits, plus, again, such a load. He Starlinki displays 16t each launch. And on boosters 5 times flying, with landing. Here's an example - a 5-time booster with landing, though we almost got into a circle, ugly, or rather, the fraudster’s collapse is obvious laughing .

        The most interesting thing is that the comparison is not with the space industry of the USA, Russia and China, but with Elon Mask with Russia and China. They did the right thing in the USA that they gave the space industry to private owners, the results are obvious. Private traders will always be more effective than state-owned companies.

            The result is only the number of starts. The USA is a financially rich country. According to the principle - we print and use the money. Even if you "Clever" will lead Roskosmos, nothing will change. Even if you become president, too. Musk uses all means - well done (by the way, he has about 500 PR employees working all over the world). Result - The USA flies to the ISS on its rocket. We will carry them for free, they will do the same for us. No more, no less. Nothing else happened. The abundance of satellite launches speaks only of need. The two countries have different tasks.
            We have a failure or lack of funding for landings. I agree here. But no one will help. We do not know what the reasons are there. By the way. Rich Americans can’t launch a new telescope for two years (from the deadline), and no one can tell when. They simply indicate a new term and calmly do their job. So always with space.

          Missiles, engines and other things are not engaged in NASA. laughing
          For example, until Mask arrived, the monopoly on heavy launches was held by ULA (Boeing with Lockheed Union), which used engines from both Russian and Rocketdine companies.
          These companies still operate and produce rockets.
          Therefore, there is no technology for transmission. laughing

            Private space companies have been operating in Russia for a long time.

            As for the companies that will be involved in launches, there are companies like NTK and Kosmokurs.

            NTK has already conducted an experimental launch of its Vyatka rocket



            Cosmocourse completed a test cycle for injectors for LRE with a thrust of more than 3,5 tons for a braking engine and emergency rescue system of a reusable suborbital spacecraft. The engine is created using 3D printing technology. In addition, they are working on a reusable engine ignition system.

              Well, the contract for conducting fire tests of the engine at one of the enterprises in the rocket and space industry was concluded and previously agreed upon in Roskosmos laughing

                Well, this is an ad recognition in the backlog of the five-year period (and given the fact that these are demonstrators for all 10 years). The printing of engine elements has been mastered by all the major manufacturers from Mask (which is far from an innovator here) to PWR and Europeans.

                The next level is Rutherford and Curie - where the share of 3D printing is brought to the optimum maximum.

                The advanced level is Relativity Space, where the main trend is minimization of human participation. Engines are specially designed for 3D printing, as well as rocket tanks and all saturation. And they already have not only investors, but also startup contracts, including Iridium.

                  Have you been thinking about "advertising recognition" for a long time? laughing Two years ago, in Roscosmos, the combustion chamber and the mixing head of the RD-0124 engine were printed and successful bench tests were carried out. This technology will be used in serial production of RD-191 and RD-171MV.

                  We are talking about a private company. They completely released documentation finalized according to the results of their tests and sent it to production, the next stage is the manufacture of the nozzle head of the engine and its testing. Next, a chamber will be made that will go to fire tests.

                    1) RocketLab started with $ 200, and this did not stop them from laying advanced technology for the production of engines that are printed almost completely on 000D printers.
                    2) Relavity began as a thesis, and then a startup of two engineers (one from BlueOrigin and the other from SpaceX). And this did not stop them from making an advanced technological process allowing a company for 300 people to make a rocket with a payload of 1200 kg every 2 months, on its engines.

                    The bright and useful sense of a private company is to work out something advanced, something conservative megacorporations will not do. 4/5 companies do not achieve results, but those who shoot, turn the industry around. And not only space.

                      I do not quite understand - what is it for? I absolutely do not know how much Cosmocourse started with, but the fact that they will print their engines for their missiles in production is a fact.

                      NCC won, too, it seems they printed the engine and burn the prototype.

                      I don’t know where the “two engineers” got such grandmas from. Allowing to open the production of 300 personnel. And it’s not interesting, to be honest.

And the Troitsk Institute for Innovation and Thermonuclear Research commissioned work on the selection of equipment for testing a prototype of a high-power space-based plasma rocket engine based on a plasma accelerator with a pulse energy of up to 300 kJ and a plasma flow rate of at least 100 kilometers per second.

      The launch of the ship this month will deliver, as usual, the crew of the 63rd main expedition, fuel, water and gas supplies, as well as office equipment and life support equipment under the program of the 76th ISS supply mission.

          Well, then you are from p.g.t. laughing GLONASS system is fully deployed and already several decades works. The planned replacement of satellites is going on as their resource is depleted, no later than in April they introduced a new device No. 760 with improved characteristics, to replace the old one, and this month we launch the third new generation device. laughing



          Today one of the old devices was turned off and a satellite was sent to replace it from the orbital reserve.
