The Ministry of Defense is negotiating the creation of a second satellite for the Liana naval intelligence system

The Russian Ministry of Defense intends to complete the deployment of the Liana space reconnaissance system in the near future, the military are actively negotiating the creation of the last spacecraft necessary for the final formation of the system. This was announced by a source in the rocket and space industry.

The military department is negotiating the creation of a second Pion-NKS satellite, the first launched last year and accepted by the Ministry of Defense for experimental combat duty. With the launch of the second "Pion", the formation of a system of marine space reconnaissance will be completed.



According to the test results, the first launched Pion-NKS apparatus received high marks from the leadership of the Ministry of Defense and the command of the Navy. The satellite is officially accepted by the customer. Now the issue of manufacturing the next spacecraft is being actively discussed.

- leads TASS source words.

The fact that the first Pion-NKS maritime reconnaissance radar satellite, launched into orbit in June 2021, was accepted for experimental combat duty, was reported at the end of September. In total, three satellites of the Liana system have been put into orbit to date - two Lotos-S and one Pion-PS. To complete, you need another "Peony".

The Liana space marine reconnaissance system, designed to monitor the world ocean, track enemy ship groups and issue target designation, was developed on the basis of a similar Soviet Legend system, created back in the 1970s of the last century, which tracked the movement of American AUGs. However, due to the low resolution of optical technology, the Legends satellites could only detect large objects. Unlike "Legend", "Liana" is able to track objects the size of a small car, determine the location of enemy ships and issue accurate operational target designation to strike weapons. fleet to destroy ships.

      three satellites of the Liana system were launched into orbit - two Lotos-S and one Pion-PS. Needs another "Peony" to complete

      It's hard to imagine. Is it really enough to monitor the World Ocean with only 4 satellites with such a high ("Liana is able to track objects the size of a small car") spatial resolution?

        It was originally planned that way. But as far as I know, Lotus has already launched 5 or 6 pieces (one "glitched").

        Maybe it's the northern hemisphere...

        These satellites operate at an altitude of 800-900 km, hence the coverage is greater, the resolution is somewhat less, but it is also more difficult to get them.

      Something with the number of satellites of the Liana system was generally confused in orbit. You need to approach the material more carefully, article by Ryabov, March 2021.

      What does it mean to negotiate? From whom and why? Vy in a state of war with the West. When will everyone be on the same train???? They are negotiating ....... what kind of bullshit. Everything needs to work as a mechanism and no negotiations. All one system.

      the military is actively negotiating on the creation of the last spacecraft necessary for the final formation of the system.

      Who are they negotiating with? "Quietly with myself, quietly with myself I am talking ..." or with the Chinese or Persians? It is the business of the military to formulate the terms of reference and get the government to include their desires in the State Defense Order and achieve its implementation. Everything else is "from the evil one"

      Since 1999, after the advent of the Tsar, they could order the 20th or 200th, but alas, it was not fashionable! Show-off boasting of sixes for the whole world is more expensive than good

      I didn't understand the word "negotiation". I understand placing an order, etc... Negotiations are strange. And in general, in a real combat situation, there should be backup satellites launched under the guise of other satellites. Since tracking and targeting hypersonic weapons to sink enemy aircraft carriers is the most important thing.

      Placing an order is already known, rather about agreeing on a price with possible adjustments to the TOR

      So is he negotiating or discussing the issue? However, both that and the other do not fit in the head in the given conditions.
