The new Russian satellite Cosmos-2569 launched into orbit will be used for reconnaissance of Ukrainian positions

Last Saturday, as part of the space launch of the Soyuz-2.1a rocket from the Vostochny cosmodrome, Russia launched a new radar satellite into orbit, capable of obtaining a detailed image of the surface with a resolution of one meter. According to a source familiar with the situation, the spacecraft will be used, among other things, for reconnaissance of the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

The new satellite, designated Kosmos-2569, will pass over the territory of Ukraine twice a day and take pictures of the positions and objects of the Ukrainian army. It belongs to a new generation and is capable of taking high-resolution images of the surface. Moreover, neither the weather nor the time of day affects this in any way.



The new radar satellite "Kondor-FKA" launched into orbit will be used for reconnaissance of Ukrainian military facilities. On average, it will pass over Ukraine twice a day and is capable of shooting military installations in the radar range with a resolution of one meter.

- leads RIA News source words.

The launch of the new spacecraft took place last Saturday, May 27, from the Vostochny cosmodrome. The carrier rocket "Soyuz-2.1a" with the upper stage "Fregat" was launched from the launch complex 1C at 00:14 Moscow time. temp. After a certain time, the upper stage successfully brought the satellite into orbit. According to the plans of Roskosmos, the second such device of the new generation will be launched into orbit next year.

The Russian satellite was given the code designation COSMOS-2569 by the North American Aerospace Defense Command NORAD.

            What they launched is excellent. What every soldier will know is an exaggeration. In Soviet times, our unit had a schedule for the flight of NATO satellites, accurate to the minute, this did not bother the soldiers, but of course there were certain restrictions.

        I quote: "Russian satellite received code designation COSMOS-2569 by North American Aerospace Defense Command NORAD"Therefore, your concern is in vain. The satellite launch tracking service has long been debugged both in the USA and in our country. Both we and they have the ability to shoot down satellites with an orbit altitude of up to 500 km. But the USA will not shoot down our satellite so that we do not answer As for the performance characteristics, let them know. Everyone will feel exactly in their own skin and take action.

            Trems. Isn't it clear!? Let me explain for those who don't understand. 1.TTX is the resolution of the satellite camera. If the enemy knows that the resolution is not 20 m, but 1 m, then what can he oppose to such a camera resolution - climb onto the satellite and close the camera or something. 2. Keeping the camera resolution secret means never using the obtained information, because after the first use it will be calculated and declassified. . the purpose is not to know at every moment the location of everything that is happening there - this is not necessary - and not a single computer can cope with decryption, but to keep the enemy in good shape so that he does not walk around, but hides through the cracks then everything it will go slower, which is good for us. Do not disturb the FSB --- there are competent people sitting there and they know it all.

            Cosmos-2569 is the name according to the NATO classification. For example, everyone has heard about the "Satan" ICBM, but not everyone knows that this name is according to the NATO classification, according to our classification, it is "Voevoda" (there are also digital indices, in particular, SS-18 - NATO, R-36M - our).

          The President is not present at this forum.

          At the expense of buying shares, financial games and speculation in the stock market. After an IPO (initial public offering), investors there simply exchange shares, playing on the exchange rate difference. And this money does not go to the enterprise. The company itself may not have any shares at all. All of them are owned by the owners, whose goal is to get the maximum dividends from these shares. Or profitable to sell to another owner.

          That is, when buying traded shares on the stock market, we buy them not from the enterprise, but from one of the owners of these shares. Then you will sell these shares yourself. And the money will already get to you, and the company will receive nothing from this. That's how everything is arranged with these capitalists.

        And now two questions:
        1. Should those who need intelligence information saturate? That is, volunteers, mobilized, contractors and their families.
        Or state structures whose leaders have a monthly salary higher than the cost of launching such satellites? (An excellent example is the previous head of the space industry, and now the "lord" of the "royal wolves" tribe)

      And in the program "Vremya" they said that the purpose of the satellite is "control of fires and floods on the territory of Russia", that's it!
      It’s as if we are back in the USSR, when all satellites were launched only for peaceful purposes, and in Afghanistan, Soviet soldiers exclusively planted trees, landscaped a distant fraternal country and made all kinds of other gifts to the fraternal Afghan people.

          No: the satellite is moving at a speed of 8 km/s.
          And if one of the commentators read what they wrote about the satellite, they would know that high resolution (1 meter) is achieved only when shooting an area of ​​10x10 km. Accordingly, in Ukraine they will be able to shoot 2-4 such areas per day. They write correctly: the satellite is civilian.

            The duration of the satellite's stay over the territory of the outskirts depends not only on its speed, but also on the height of the orbit, its angle of inclination and the direction of the satellite's flight.

        The article says that it is this satellite that will fly over the outskirts 2 times a day. Moreover, it is not indicated how long they will hang over it. There are also our other satellites, I don’t think there are very many, but I read somewhere that they allowed us to see the territory of the outskirts for about 2 hours a day. So your calculations are not entirely correct.
