Defense Ministry successfully tested satellite inspector

The Russian new satellite-inspector passed tests, during which it was able to diagnose another domestic spacecraft. This is reported by the Ministry of Defense.


According to the report, the Russian military has tested the new satellite inspector, confirming its characteristics. As a result of checking another spacecraft using this satellite, valuable information was obtained about the technical condition of the examined vehicle, which was transferred to ground control facilities.

Today, in the course of testing the latest samples of space technology, a close-up survey of one of the domestic satellites was carried out using specialized equipment of a small spacecraft

- said in a statement.

Inspector satellites are spacecraft capable of maneuvering in outer space, approaching other space objects. These satellites can conduct external inspection of objects, refueling and repair of satellites, as well as influence the spacecraft of a potential enemy.

We will remind that earlier in France they accused the Russian satellite-inspector of taking information from the Franco-Italian military satellite. Also, the United States is concerned about the activities of Russian satellites.

Currently, several Russian satellites of this purpose are operating in orbit.

          It will be generally nonsense. wink Space has not yet anyone. What, it’s impossible to stare already, who flies by? But seriously, it’s nice to look like a “partner”, burns in this regard.

        When creating this satellite inspector, the chief scientific consultant was the traffic police general and a large team of traffic police veterans.

      You can make a 3D photo with excellent resolution, in addition to several spectra in the visible, those, etc. for specialists this can provide a lot of information. The emergence of new modifications is especially interesting. Now there is a threat of an arms race in space. For the future, you need to be able to identify satellites that may have strike weapons.

      There are technologies to remotely detect nuclear fissile components. Those. in the future, it will be possible to remotely check whether the strange telecommunication satellite YABCh on board. Those. in the future, it will be possible to install such equipment on inspection satellites.

        By the way, in Samara we developed and made an interesting camera for cubsats. It even looks cool in appearance:



        Two of these cameras are installed at the Sirius-DZZ school kubsat and at the VSE-DZZ student NIU, both satellites are based on the Russian platform OrbiKraft-Pro from the private company Sputniks and will fly into space this fall.

              Thank you. Today we’ll send liberals to Sochi. In the Yandex district. They really don’t like Sirius. Do you happen to have satellite photos? If you have a pliz, please!

                Have they been there at least once? lol By the way, I advise you very much - there are open days there. Cosmonauts and representatives of the Russian space industry regularly give lectures. And the children made a very cool space laboratory

                  I’ve filed documents there right now. They are considering it very seriously. While I’m working nearby, I’ll come and go to work with a view of Sirius. They will grow up against all odds. Now I’ll take care of the district. Thank you.

    A very strange photo in the title is SoyuzTMA-14M TPK from 2014 with one SB that did not open. Which, however, after docking, revealed the same successfully. It has nothing to do with satellite inspectors. Although there may be this photo on SoyuzTMA-17M where there was a similar refusal.

    Satellite Fighter (IS) - Soviet anti-satellite weapons program, which led to the deployment of the IS-A system

    The initial decision was the most radical: it was supposed to destroy enemy spacecraft (SC) by the explosion of a nuclear warhead delivered to the target area by an anti-aircraft missile. In exactly the same way, the military was going to fight with ballistic missiles. The large radius of damage to the nuclear charge, on the one hand, greatly facilitated aiming, on the other, it disabled not only enemy satellites, but also their own. Non-nuclear orbital systems seemed less barbaric: you fly up to the satellite, identify it as “friend or foe” and, if necessary, “neutralize” it. It remains in orbit - in the form of a silent pile of garbage that does not understand anything and does not respond to the calls of the Earth.


    The interceptor weighing about 2,4 tons is equipped with an orientation system, a powerful propulsion system with large fuel reserves, allowing for a wide maneuver in space. In front of it was an antenna of a homing radar head, behind it a cylindrical instrument compartment with systems providing communication and data exchange with a ground-based complex. To destroy the target, two warheads of fragmentation-cumulative action served. At launch, the warheads were folded and revealed only after entering orbit.


    New times - now completely new technical solutions.
    Someone is exploring asteroids, other planets.
    The military is exploring other people's satellites - all in business.

    Recall that earlier in France, the Russian inspector satellite was accused of taking information from the Franco-Italian military satellite.

    Is it possible that scanners have already appeared in science fiction to take information from a satellite produced by another country?
