The Ministry of Defense will get five new spy satellites

The Russian Ministry of Defense will create the newest satellite electronic surveillance system, consisting of five spacecraft. The tender of the military department won the Khimki NPO named after Lavochkin, as a result the contract with the company amounted to almost 70 billion rubles.


It is planned that the satellite system will initially consist of two devices, later the other three will join them. With it, it will be possible to observe live images on the ground in the submeter resolution. “Izvestia” notes that the most advanced such systems allow you to recognize machine numbers and common features of a person’s appearance. In Russia, the equipment of a similar level was not produced from Soviet times.

As the general director of NPO named after Lavochkin Victor Hartov told the publication, they will make the satellite themselves, and foreign companies will make the “stuffing” for it. At the moment, the proposals of foreign enterprises that are ready to supply “insides” for the electronic surveillance system are being considered. According to Khartov, gradually the share of Russian technologies in the satellite’s payload will increase in order to fully switch to self-sufficient production.

European suppliers, Thales Alenia Space from Italy and Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) from Israel can become suppliers. As Viktor Hartov noted, they are most interested in the terms, risks, costs and the willingness of companies to transfer technology to Russia.

A draft of the satellite system is planned to be submitted to the Ministry of Defense before the end of 2013.

Viktor Yesin, Candidate of Military Sciences, professor, retired colonel-general, adviser to the Commander of Russia's strategic forces, in a conversation with “However” was brief, evaluating the “order” of the Ministry of Defense:

- This system is definitely needed. It also makes it possible to solve not only intelligence tasks, but also national economic ones. This is called earth remote sensing. As for the contract amount - 70 billion rubles - I think that this is an acceptable cost. The same 5 spacecraft, and in this cost, most likely, should be included and ground infrastructure.

    Israeli defense concern "Aviation Industry" (TAA) It is the main contender for the supply of equipment for five new generation spy satellites ordered by the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.

    According to the newspaper Izvestia, the Italian concern Thales Alenia Space and the European multinational company EADS can compete with TAA.

    The main contractor of the defense ministry will be the Lavochkin NGO, which won a state tender of almost 70 billion rubles (approximately 2,3 billion US dollars). The satellites themselves will be built in Russia, however, the "filling" for them will be purchased abroad.

    The publication cites the opinion of experts, according to which the Israelis are most likely to receive an order for the supply of electronics for satellite spies. The Italian company is inferior to competitors in the technical component, and the candidacy of EADS is problematic due to the prevailing political situation and multinational leadership. It is important for the Israelis to establish relations with Russia.

      "The Ministry of Defense will acquire the five latest spy satellites" -I rejoiced!
      “As the director general of the Lavochkin NPO Viktor Khartov told the publication, they will make the satellite themselves, and foreign companies will make the“ stuffing for it. ”At the moment, proposals from foreign enterprises are ready to put“ the insides ”for the electronic surveillance system. According to Khartov, gradually the share of Russian technologies in the satellite payload will increase, so that then completely switch to self-sufficient production. "- It’s already worthless.
      What can a Great Power only a corps do? I understand that there were no orders from the union, but if @@ it was Italian, Israeli filling, pah, I would not have read it better.

    I hope they will buy a foreign filling for a very short time. And then, in fact, the manufacturers will switch the pair of knife switches, and the satellite will be cut down, or. worse, will come under their control.

    It is made in Israel, yes. But who told you that there is no labor of our specialists in it? There, after the collapse of the USSR, so many specialists moved ... am For this alone, and for the collapse of science and the military-industrial complex, there is no forgiveness of Gorbi and Chevy ...

    I don’t know what the reader’s opinion looks like, but I would prefer that all electronics was made with us. Only in this case there will be a guarantee against probable "bookmarks", who are able to stop the operation of satellite devices at the request of the interested party. It could be Israel, it could be USA, or any other country interested in this and having ties with the manufacturer. Although, if programmable devices are used in the satellite’s electronics, it’s not so it’s scary. They will still be programmed in Russia. But, possible "Bookmark"will remain
    How many people, so many opinions! Someone will not like my words, nothing can be done. Fate

    1. They are checked this time
    2. The manufacturer of the bookmark will not install, because if they find out about this - he will no longer see orders.

    But in the civilian sector, bookmarks are various commonplace :)

      And what do you mean by the word "bookmark"? I already forgot what weapons are repeat , but I also have a concept about microcircuits. How do you check its availability? Until it manifests itself, no one will know anything. And after the manifestation, first of all, everyone sees that m / s-ma "has failed." Died, so to speak.
      Obligatory to find out what happened, the crystal is opened. And here, with a large number of layers, it is extremely difficult to determine what happened and for what reason. For anyone, too often it can be attributed to the process technology. I think so. smile

    This is a spy satellite of Russia will make a potential adversary from NATO.

    Honestly everyone expected but this decision is the pinnacle of genius, bravo.

    I think that it will be correctly understood in this way, the purchase of technologies with subsequent refinement in Russia. If materials will be used at the beginning because of the debris, then it is likely in those satellites that are planned for dual use with the main emphasis on the national economy.

    The tender of the military department won the Khimki NPO named after Lavochkin + the CIA so it turns out ?? if the filling is western then you can put your bugs in microcircuits ??? well, he has the right name for a spy satellite, he will transfer all information to the west for our money

    What are the scientific minds of Israeli origin represent, can be shown by the example of air defense-shooting TARKR "Frunze" in due time. "Fort" was shooting the target with the first rocket. Usually this was the end of it. But then the goal became group. The first rocket - in the target, and the second and subsequent went through ballistics. this was repeated 2 times. Then the KGB figured out: the appropriate algorithm was added to the mat. And the missile complex was dismantled.
    I imagine that you can create at the present level of programming!

    If only this foreign filling was not dual-use and did not cause damage >>> spy satellites are needed even in this form with this filling since the lag behind NATO in this area is noticeable
    In Russia, equipment of a similar level has not been produced since Soviet times.

    Izvestia noted that the most advanced similar systems allow one to recognize machine numbers and general features of a person’s appearance.
    This is from the heart. When shooting “vnadir” in the most favorable conditions, the Kihoule has a resolution of 0,1 - 0,5 m. a man with a nose 10 cm long walks with his nose up. etc.

    The Ministry of Defense will get five new spy satellites

    Will the spies be Israeli? And they will follow us for our money - well, wow, Yes!
