Russian optoelectronic complex "Okno-M" recorded an increase in activity in space

40

According to the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, the Russian optical-electronic complex "Okno-M" recorded a significant increase in activity in space. This complex operates in the Tajik Sanglok Mountains, which are part of the Pamir Highlands.


The agency reports RIA News.

"Okno-M", located at an altitude of more than two thousand meters above the level of the World Ocean, since the beginning of 2021, has controlled the movements of about 30 thousand space objects. This is much more than last year. Then, during the whole year, the complex monitored 25 thousand objects. This indicates a significant and dramatic increase in activities in outer space.

Optical-electronic complex "Okno-M" is capable of monitoring the situation at an altitude of 120 thousand meters to 50 thousand kilometers. At the same time, even at the maximum distance, it can track objects no larger than a tennis ball.

The complex was installed and started to work in 1999. It was originally called "Window". Then its maximum range was 40 thousand kilometers. After the modernization carried out in 2014, it began to "see" 10 thousand kilometers further and received a new name - "Window-M".

    Gosha ! Why didn't you write about it before ..?
    I wonder what we will launch soon on heavy launch vehicles, already in OUR orbital station? There are also promising opportunities .. I think there are still surprises ahead! Biden won in quiet negotiations asked

      They wrote about this complex for a long time.
      The Americans also have this, it is also used for peaceful purposes, since even very small objects are tracked, debris that contaminates near-earth space, then a collision can be prevented by slightly changing the orbit of the satellites and the ISS.

      The orbital station has nothing to do with it, completely different tasks and level of implementation. At least the ground-based complex probably has a multi-ton foundation / base that performs certain functions and which is not needed in orbit.

      And it would not be bad for us to launch the orbital station in the usual version, without the wunderwaffe, before the end of our segment on the ISS, with which there are questions ...

          Immediately cancel the reduction factor when calculating the military pension. Return the lost pension to all categories of the Ministry of Defense, Ministry of Internal Affairs, etc., starting in 2012.

              Policemen and others who do not retire as young bullies and want an even higher pension. Serves them right, they didn’t have to support the authorities, which took us 5 years of pensions.

      "There are also promising opportunities .. I think there are still surprises ahead! Biden won in quiet negotiations asked"- what exactly do you mean? I did not understand anything in this phrase .. Is there an opportunity to launch or are there promising opportunities to launch? Surprises where and which ones and for whom and from whom? What do you mean our space surprises that Biden was scared? Express yourself more clearly , if you please, otherwise it just looks like a set of words, and, for some reason, joyful ones.

    Is that all the news? Then one title could be left from the article.

      In general, yes, there is a lack of specifics - What kind of activity, whose activity, what kind of activity (natural or artificial garbage, our rivals in space exploration or aliens), and so on.

      And so very informative information for space lovers and theorists of the unknown.

      I would not have fixed it! Added 1.500 Musk satellites, a couple of hundred OneWeb.
      And a bunch of Chinese communication satellites.

    Naturally, the activity is growing! A couple of days ago I saw satellites walking in a chain at night! This is not the first time this year I see this, there are dozens of them! !!

      Hundreds !!! There are hundreds of them, plus a huge amount of garbage. But space is a spacious space, there is enough space for everyone. The main thing is to have time to notice the departure of the Tridents and Minutemans.

      These are "machine-gun bursts" of 60 Musk satellites.
      They run every two weeks.

    I once had it. I'm sitting at work, I get on in Tyrnete. I think I shouldn't look at where the ISS is. I looked at the monitor, and she's darling right above me. I ran into the street, since there are dark nights in Sochi, I've seen enough! shed "in space flies not tied to anything! what

      The ISS, as before the Mir station, is regularly observed over Sochi. It flies so fast, very bright.

    At the same time, even at the maximum distance, it can track objects no larger than a tennis ball.

    That is, it cannot track GPS satellites, because they are larger than a tennis ball. The author, as I understand it, is a humanist, but the Russian language is taught in these universities. Now they'll give me a warning again.

            I cannot agree. Photo from the Ministry of Defense. but a link to RIA Novosti. I read it, and so it says there:
            Moreover, at the maximum range, the complex is capable of detecting objects the size of a tennis ball.

    Nikolay, don't pay attention. Xorek is probably the two hundredth (at least) reincarnation of a certain Mikhan (he's Vitalik, he's a hundred or two other nicknames). a characteristic feature - mossy cheers-patriotism plus and a set of unrelated phrases. So DO NOT PAY ATTENTION. Treat it like rain or wind. Each city has its own urban bustle, and we have in V.O. has its own attraction - Meehan

    In the Tien Shan, the air is cleaner. And there are convenient locations up to 4000. Not far from a good road and power lines.

      Sanglok was chosen precisely as a well-surveyed site with an already existing civil observatory and power transmission line. Only the warriors decided to shorten the road from the Shar-Shar pass along a steep slope and for many years suffered with the erosion of the roadway from the release of groundwater.

    Write more and more about such achievements! So that people do not have a false sense of the inferiority of the country and people, but pride in Russia. And they did not forget that many of these current achievements were laid down by the Great Soviet Union!
