NORAD: Deorbiting Russian military satellite burns out over the Pacific Ocean

83

The Russian satellite Kosmos-2525, launched in 2018 in the interests of the Ministry of Defense, went out of orbit and burned up in the upper atmosphere over the Pacific Ocean. It is reported by the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD).


According to NORAD, the military satellite went out of orbit and was no longer monitored on April 1, 2021. It is noted that the Kosmos-2525 object has not been found in orbit at the present time. According to forecasts, the destruction of the satellite occurred at about 7:43 Moscow time. time. over the South Pacific.

The spacecraft, named Kosmos-2525, was launched into orbit on March 29, 2018 from the Plesetsk cosmodrome. The launch of the Soyuz-2.1b carrier rocket provided the combat crew of the Space Forces of the Aerospace Forces. On the same day, the satellite was launched into the target orbit and taken over to control the ground assets of the Space Forces.

After being taken over for control, the satellite was assigned a serial number "Kosmos-2525"

- declared in the Ministry of Defense.

The Ministry of Defense did not disclose the purpose of the satellite, according to open data, it is an experimental small spacecraft (EMC) designed for remote sensing of the Earth.

    Three years, service life? It brings to mind that the "sworn friends" have put their rotten hands on! I hope that the Yankee will soon also start a satellite fall, even a kind of massive death of satellites from orbit to the earth!

      Sounding satellites are usually in low orbits, and there the remnants of the atmosphere slow them down.

        The bolt cutter is an experimental satellite, such a one-off does not happen! Completed the program -transfer to a higher orbit, and canned, until the right time!

          Just such one-off and there are.
          Launched into orbit, conducted tests and into the ocean, so that it would not occupy the trajectory.

          You are smart, you can't tell right away, of course, there is an indisputable meaning to an experimental satellite, which will work 50/50 more or not, work as it should, attach an engine and fuel tanks for transfer to a higher orbit, load it with equipment, and batteries to ensure the sleep mode, the fools in our videoconferencing serve, they would tell them what to do and how

          Well, how, would ... here's the information about him:
          Billed as Kosmos-2525, it was launched into an orbit measuring approximately 320 by 350 kilometers with an inclination of 96,64 °. Online tenders for the transportation of the satellite to Plesetsk identified it as EMKA and linked it with the All-Russian Research Institute of Electromechanics (VNIIEM) [now AO Scientific and Production Corporation “Space Monitoring Systems, Information Control and Electromechanical Complexes” named after A.G. Iosifyan ”], a manufacturer of Earth remote sensing and meteorological satellites. The documents trace the history of the project back to the contract signed between the Russian Ministry of Defense and VNIIEM on October 23, 2015.
          In the 2016 VNIIEM annual report, EMKA stands for "experimental small spacecraft", adding that it will serve as the basis for the "Earth remote sensing space complex", clearly used here as a cover term for military photographic reconnaissance. EMKA is probably the same satellite that was mentioned in several articles of VNIIEM in 2014-2015 as "Zvezda". One of these publications characterized it as the 150kg experimental predecessor to the larger 250kg satellite (MKA-B), which can capture high-resolution images for both civilian and military purposes. MKA stands for Small Spacecraft and B stands for High Resolution. The article compares the Zvezda and MKA-B with the first in a series of American commercial satellites for imaging the Earth SkySat-1 with a maximum resolution of 0,9 meters in panchromatic mode. A drawing of the MCA-B is also shown, showing that it has the same resolution and is very similar in appearance to the SkySat.

          So, it’s an experimental series on LEO, so there’s only three years of autonomy ...

        No supply (sanction) of radiation resistant electronic components.
        And "effective" managers buy whatever they get and wherever they get. How many investigations have already taken place. But things are still there.
        I repeat, about 10 years ago, one Chinese colleague (an electronic engineer) said that China bought ERI (mainly processors) for the onboard equipment of its missiles from Taiwan.
        I don’t know how it is today.

          What does radiation have to do with it? This is a low-orbit satellite, during operation it slows down on the atmosphere and needs fuel to accelerate, such do not fly for a long time.

            This is a low-orbit satellite, during operation it brakes against the atmosphere

            Of course it slows down. Exclusively over the Pacific Ocean, like the MIR station, no matter who gets hurt. Safety comes first. laughing And in general, satellites by themselves, for no reason, no reason, do not leave their orbits.

          First, we have long been using various technical solutions to protect the domestic EEE from radiation. Secondly, the impact of the notorious "radiation" on low-orbit ERS spacecraft is minimal, since the radiation belts are much higher - over 500 km.

          Take any modern cubesat - its EKB, usually an "industrial" class, although very high quality.

        =========
        good Low-orbit satellites (if there is no vigorous EI), as a rule, do not last long! Three years for LEOs is quite a normal period. Well, then, if the satellite was experimental, then God knows it, which the deadline has been calculated! Perhaps 3 years is even more than expected .... But this is all from the field of assumptions. But the fact is that he fell exactly in the South Pacific! It is there that the spacecraft that have worked out are dumped. Hence, it can be assumed that the descent from orbit was controlled .... I still did not understand why there was a panic?

            Hello.
            hi
            But I first got behind the wheel of a passenger car at the age of 17, it was a long-eared constipation. And ... fucking with that how easy it is to manage - also Swallow!
            Prior to that, my driving experience was on:
            UAZ-469, BTR-40, ZIL -131, ZIL-157 (without hydraulics), BTR-60,70, BAT, PTS (M, 2) and KrAZ-256 (bast shoe) with a PMP link on the back. ...
            Well. I had a good childhood))

            So ... depending on WHAT and WHAT to compare ...

            .........
            His first car was a GAZ-3110 with a 402 engine, he took the floor of the trunk of spare parts with him.
            And I changed the radiator in the taiga at night (I always had a spare one with me),
            And the winter on summer tires went (in the Urals).
            Nothing, I didn't buzz somehow ...))
            .......
            After you change the V-72-46 engine on the T-6B and stretch the harp with a sequential RMSh, but you will pass the "hundred" march in the column - all body movements on a passenger car look like such a frivolous fuy ..))

                The message is not understood.
                Hmm ...
                Lana, let's go from the other side:

                There are people for whom a car serves as a comfortable means of transportation: delivery to work, a meeting, a family trip to a shopping center, to the sea, etc. Many of them serve it in specialized car services.
                For them, the seven is savagery and anochranism.
                This is normal.

                And there are people for whom any car is a significant help in the household and makes life much easier, although you have to do the repair yourself.
                For them, the seven is a car that needs to be protected.
                And this is also NORMAL.

                Everything is relative.

                Do you think there are few people of the second category?
                Yes, mostly in the villages.
                Yes, mainly in the Urals, Siberia, Transbaikalia, etc.
                But they are, and there are many of them.
                By the way, among them are my friends and relatives.

                Maybe then you shouldn't pante that the seven is an anachronism?
                - First of all, out of culture and banal respect.
                - Secondly, there is a popular wisdom "do not renounce your wallet".

                Something like that.

      Three years, service life?


      All small spacecraft, including foreign ones, of a certain form factor have a service life of 2-3 years. This is due to the fact that such devices do not have the ability to raise their orbit for a long time, due to the small amount of fuel on board (if at all such an option as an engine is available). Only recently has it become possible to install electric propulsion engines with a small supply of xenon on such small spacecraft.

      As an example - domestic SPRD-50 on the OneWeb spacecraft.

      Yes, there seems to be nothing criminal here. If you look at the archives, then there was information about its possible fall on March 22, here, read https://www.interfax.ru/world/655326
      But because of what he could not stay in orbit, a question for the specialists. It is unlikely that it was launched only for 3 years, since similar products are calculated for 5 years of operation. Back in August 2020, it was reported: "Kosmos-2525 is still in working order, continuing to carry out regular engine corrections to maintain its orbit"But with a mass of 200-250 kg with the equipment, you can see there was very little fuel for the orbit correction on it, or it was corrected too often.
