Broadband Internet Testing on Russian Segment of ISS

47

Flight tests of the ISS Russian Segment Broadband Communication System (BSS) should be completed in the third quarter of this year. Its speed should be 180 Mbps.


This is reported by the official publication of the company "Information Satellite Systems" (ISS) named after MF Reshetnev "Siberian Sputnik".

Thus, the segment of the ISS used by Russian cosmonauts will receive high-speed Internet before the end of September.

The tests have already confirmed the main characteristics of the SCS, including the possibility of transmitting information from the Russian segment of the International Space Station at a speed of 180 Mbit / s. The data will be sent via satellites of the Luch multifunctional space relay system.

The transmitting equipment of the new system was created by the Rocket and Space Corporation Energia, and the receiving equipment was created by ISS named after Reshetnev.

The delivery of equipment for the SCS to the ISS was carried out by the Progress MS-10 cargo spacecraft.

Earlier, the creation of an independent broadband communication system for the Russian segment of the ISS was announced by the head of the Roscosmos state corporation Dmitry Rogozin. Now our cosmonauts use the Internet connection of the American segment of the space station.

    What should be commonplace is presented to us as some great achievement! Although, the very fact that we are still trying to do something ourselves in space, regardless of the leadership of our cosmonautics, speaks of how great the spirit of the Russian man is, for for so many years it is necessary to be able to exploit the Soviet reserve without creating anything revolutionary!

      Yesterday we sent an advanced multifunctional module "Science" to the Baikonur cosmodrome to prepare it for flight to the station in April next year.



      About 30 racks with scientific equipment will be installed on the module, so a good high-speed channel was required to transfer data from it to Earth.

              "Breeze-M" is not used for launching heavy modules. This upper stage is required only for launching satellites on the GPO, GSO and the departure trajectory. In addition, 20 Proton-M missile launches in a row were previously successful.

        Yes, this is a landmark event.
        Finally, the twenty-year epic with the construction of the module has a chance to end.
        True, the module by this time will be approximately as old as the station itself, but these are trifles.
        Perhaps in 2-3 years of the remaining life of the ISS, it will even be possible to conduct some experiments. And there you look - the life of the station will be prolonged, it will not be so offensive that they launched it for a nodding analysis. In any case, the Trump administration considered the possibility of ending direct budgetary funding of the ISS after 2024, and no one needs to explain what will happen to the station without American money. As well as the fact that if the owner of the White House changes in November, then the whole gimmick with approvals and extension of the station will start anew.
        I am more concerned not so much with the issue of delivery of the module, let's hope that Proton-M (or a miracle will happen - Angara?), But the risk of docking of this junk with the ISS. The last photos of the module do not inspire optimism. This wrapping of the protruding parts with scotch tape, blue electrical tape and in places just paper suggests seditious thoughts. Does RK have no normal packaging? Normal packaging materials? Or money for them?
        However, I digress from the topic. I apologize.

              Chinese taikonauts have been banned from the ISS by agreement with the United States. Moreover, you cannot even bring them to the Russian segment, as was the case with the first space tourist, who was brought in despite the United States, although he was a citizen of these United States. laughing ... But there is no agreement about tourists, so NASA eventually agreed to their arrival with some restrictions.

      Back in the summer of last year, NASA updated the Internet on the ISS, more than doubling the connection speed, bringing it to 600 Mbps using TDRS. Ground stations were also modified, and new processors were installed on the ISS itself.

      With the transition to the domestic data transmission system, all traffic from the ISS RS will be transmitted directly to our MCC, bypassing the American nodes. Until 2025, two more Luch-5VM satellites will be introduced into the system as a reserve, and after 2025, the system will switch to heavy domestic Luch-M platforms. The data transfer speed will increase significantly.

      The point is not how many there were, but that the new channel is round-the-clock. Before that, the data was dropped either when the station flew over our NPCs over our own territory, or through the Americans.

      Now, using domestic relay satellites, scientific and technological data can be dropped at any time from any point in the orbit.

      Back in the USSR, a similar system was deployed for the Mir station, but with a much lower throughput and rapid degradation of satellites in orbit. Modern satellites of the Luch system have an active life of 10 years, and new ones are planned for 15 years of operation.

    Will there be surveillance cameras? Probably, they want to organize round-the-clock security at the MCC to watch what is happening at the station, especially at night. The neighboring inhabitants of the station, with a high degree of probability, began to scoff at our cucumbers, and holes in the walls were drilled so that there was no harvest, everything froze. Now they will not get out.
