Missile defense for dummies

145
If unrealistic tasks are set, then there is no need to be surprised at the lack of results.


October 23 The 2013 of the year in Brussels hosted a meeting of the Russia-NATO Council. As usual, Moscow actively opposed the construction of missile defense elements in Poland and Romania with the assistance of the United States. The Secretary General of the Alliance during the meeting said that neither NATO nor Russia have yet agreed on any parameters for possible cooperation in this area. “But we all agree that further consultations are the way forward,” Rasmussen said. “Working together in this area does not work. Missile defense programs in Europe are developing, our concerns are not taken into account, ”the Russian side noted.

Sometime this period in stories the countries (among many others, of course) will give the name "The Age of Terry Non-Professionalism". It was a time when gynecologists were in charge of foreign policy, cardiologists - agriculture, and women from the tax service of the Northern capital, headed by Glavlenmebeltorg, dealt with the most important issues of military construction.

The consequences for any of the areas where "effective managers" invaded were usually the most disastrous. Sometimes terrifying and disastrous. It has not bypassed this plague and anti-missile defenses.

In this regard, I will tell a little story. At the end of 90, I was sent from the Main Operational Directorate of the General Staff to a meeting of the working group on missile defense, which was held in the Foreign Ministry building at Smolensk-Senna, 32. The composition of the working group frankly surprised me. These were career diplomats. Apart from me, no one from those present ever under any circumstances had anything to do with matters of planning, combat use and, moreover, the operation of missile defense systems.

The issue that was on the agenda of the meeting of the working group was the prolongation of the 1972 ABM Treaty. Exceptionally due to negligence (and possibly stupidity) in the first minutes of the working group meeting, I quietly asked: “What are you going to develop here, if of you, I'm sorry, no one understands anything about missile defense?”.

What started here! The head of the group said that if I didn’t immediately shut up, I would be immediately informed about my impudent behavior by the Chief of General Staff. And my name is just deleted right away from the working group lists.

One of the diplomats offended me: “Yes, I survived eleven rounds of talks on missile defense in Geneva!”. From the expression on his face, it was noticeable that for a diplomat to eleven times to attack and wipe his pants in Geneva were things from one series of events and phenomena. To myself, I thought: “Would you, sonny, try to endure at least one“ round ”of talks on missile defense in the winter in Sary-Shagan. In the fifth year of the existence of a missile defense ground without central heating. In Geneva, any fool and 110 rounds sit out. " But to voice this idea at such a high meeting, of course, did not. And before the end of the meeting, the working group did not open the mouth. I thought: first, I will be more whole, and secondly, diplomats absolutely do not need opinions and comments from specialists. Anyway, they do not hear me, I decided.

However, even then, it was at those moments of the working group meeting that it became shrillly clear to me how the negotiations on the ABM Treaty with the US would end. Domestic diplomats put their horns in only one wording: “The 1972 ABM Treaty of the Year is the cornerstone of world stability and global security.”

Missile defense for dummies

But, as you know, contracts are signed and respected with equal (parity) capabilities of the parties. With political and military corpses (and this is Russia at the end of 90-s), no one ever signs any agreements. And the more they do not comply.

And the possibility for a compromise on missile defense at the beginning of 2000's, according to unanimous estimates of real experts, was. It was not worth just struggling with one single wording. But look at any symposium, conference, meeting, negotiations on missile defense. Who are the main experts? That's right, diplomats, political scientists, economists, lawyers, etc. In the best case, you can see retired figures from the Strategic Missile Forces.

Therefore, the impression is persistently that the anti-missile faculty was opened at MGIMO and there were established departments of radiolocation, electromagnetic field theory and microwave technology, radio receiving and radio transmitting devices, automatic control and regulation theory, antenna devices and radio wave propagation.

Probably, the Maxwell Society of Amateurs of Maxwell’s Equations, the rotor of the rotor of the vector zet e have already been formed within MGIMO (there, it must be assumed, only true fans of the electromagnetic field theory are retiring), the Section of the Double Waveguide Tee sits fruitfully and fruitfully.

For example, not so long ago one of the leaders of the military department as the largest specialist in the field of missile defense was presented on the federal television channel. And he is a graduate of MGIMO. Presumably, he graduated from this anti-missile department and, without sparing his health, was optionally engaged in the Maxwell Equations Society.

There is an opinion that the people conducting negotiations on missile defense, theory and practice relating to issues of missile defense, to know nothing to do. They are like effective "negotiators" - and that says it all (what a fool after all, I wonder, came up with this word - "negotiator"). However, we turn to examples.

In particular, the topic of joint operation of the Gabala radar station was discussed intensively and intensively at all levels not so long ago. I speak plainly (I borrowed the wording from Wasserman) - this idea could not be born in the head of a specialist. It could only arise in the brains of political scientists ’diplomats. And I will explain why.

Suppose the parties agreed to jointly operate the Gabala radar station. The question immediately arises: how, in what form and where to transfer data from the Gabala radar station to the other side? After all, you will not climb on the CIC (command and measurement center) and you will not begin to wave flags towards NATO, CENTO and SEATO. Type - accept information, transmit by voice.

In this case, Gabala would have to pull a cable several thousand kilometers long. Or build a broadband radio relay line with repeaters every few tens of kilometers (due to the curvature of the earth's surface).

For example, they built it by waving with no less money than the construction of the station itself. Now we have to solve the next question. After all, information from Gabala will be transmitted in the standards adopted in Russia. With NATO, CENTO and SEATO (and even abatement), this does not match. This means you need to create some kind of interface. It will transform our information to the standards adopted in the West. Suppose we decided to solve this technical problem (a very complicated one, we note).

But no one had even asked before: do the Americans (and Europeans) need this information in principle? But it is not really needed. Neither large nor small. Americans have their own SPRNU - nuclear missile warning system. It has a global character, several echelons and successfully solves its tasks in every corner of the Earth.

So why around this issue of the joint operation of the Gabala radar station was raised such a bucha? And so many copies are broken, if the question obviously had no positive solution? And as we ourselves easily gave up this Gabala, when Azerbaijan broke the exorbitant price for the rent of the station. And in this quagmire they even dragged in the top state officials.

I think this happened only because of ignorance of the elementary principles of building an APN system and an UCCS. After all, political scientists and lawyers, apparently, do not suspect, in particular, that Gabala is just an octopus tentacle. And the head, eyes, brain of this octopus are located in Solnechnogorsk. As an independent element of any missile defense system, PRN, SCPC is the data transmission system (SPD). And the technical requirements for it are very high. For reference: only one microsecond in radar - 150 meters in range. For missile defense is already a very significant figure. And if they knew all this (or at least a small part), they wouldn’t have been grinding nonsense about the joint operation of the Gabala radar station. But after all the same tryndeli and long months.

Therefore, the subject, gentlemen, must possess - and no other opinions.

Or, dear comrades are sitting and discussing the issue of operating a joint missile defense system with the West. Although from the very beginning it is clear to the non-expert that there can be no joint missile defense system with our overseas partners simply by definition. And just for one simple reason. PRO is a bunch of advanced technology. The most that neither is the leading edge of the development of science and technology, in banal-pathos words. No one, never under any circumstances, will share these technologies with “partners” or even with “strategic partners”. For it is in fact a betrayal of national interests.

And political analysts are deliberately discussing the question of who will own the button in the future missile defense system. No, guys, no "Start" button in the missile defense system. PRO is a fully automatic system. In combat mode, it functions without the participation of a human operator (and it cannot be otherwise, when the missile and target convergence rates are more than seven kilometers per second). For example, in the domestic A-35 / 35М PRO system there was even a team that blocked all toggle switches, buttons and system switches during the combat cycle, in order to exclude any human intervention in the combat mode. The command to launch anti-missiles in any missile defense system is provided by a digital computing complex.

And how many copies are broken around the so-called non-directionality? Meanwhile, the missile defense system is not a gun or a rifle. It is not directed anywhere, but it works, as it is called, round. And it is intended for the defense of the area where the important objects are located (for example, points of the highest levels of command, administrative-political centers, etc., the starting positions of ICBMs).

And how many economists-lawyers and economists broke their foreheads demanding that the United States obtain "guarantees against the missile defense system" against Russia? Let's try to sort this question, as they say, on the fingers. To begin to simplify the situation. And we will try to understand what guarantees there may be.

Although, even before the analysis of this task, it is necessary to state at once that the United States will never give anyone any guarantees in this area. And it would be very naive to expect a similar result.

But still imagine. Anti-missile battle unfolded over the territory of Europe. The armed struggle began, say, between NATO and the states of the Middle / Middle / Far East, possessing missile technologies and corresponding weapons. Russia is not a party to the conflict. Therefore, no guarantees are necessary.

After all, there can be no such phantasmagoric situation, when in this hypothetical conflict East-West over the European continent, a flock of Russian missiles (and somewhere flying around their business) appeared from somewhere. And their US / European missile defense systems cannot be shot down due to previous commitments.

Next situation. Russia is a party to the conflict. Then what are the guarantees? Unclear.

Here's how with such baseline data you can achieve some positive result in the negotiations on missile defense? Never, nowhere and under any circumstances. Only one thing can be achieved - the complete loss of a military-political person, which happens with enviable regularity.

This whole treaty process in the field of arms control and reduction has never given our country at least some positive result. Absolutely nothing but loss and shame. Here are some milestones of the process.

CFE Treaty Sample 1990. When they signed, they themselves were horrified - how could such a crap be signed at all? Why did this happen? In the course of working on the document, not specialists were sent to Paris, but as an encouragement to the right people. This was also the Soviet era, when a foreign business trip was equated with an order. Therefore, it was not experts who traveled, but various petty crooks and assholes - up to and including political workers. And when they signed it, it became ridiculous.

INF Treaty. Stupidity in half with the betrayal of national interests. Although the word "nonsense" is probably too soft here. Military-political idiocy - it will be more accurate.

START treaties. Nothing but harm.

Moratorium on nuclear testing weapons? Again, military-political stupidity. And long-term harm.

The question arises: what to do? And that's what.

1. Stop all negotiations on missile defense. Complete this process, the zero result of which is visible now. And develop national systems. And the system to overcome missile defense probable opponents.

2. Stop all consultations and negotiations on START. Complete this process once and for all. Or for historically foreseeable time. No less than 50 – 75 years to this question not to return. Under no circumstances.

3. Exit the INF Treaty. Unilaterally. And to resume the production of these systems, which are extremely necessary for ensuring the national security of Russia.

4. Get out of the moratorium on testing nuclear weapons.

And this will be a policy of consistently upholding the deep-rooted national interests of the Russian Federation.

        This is the thing, any person who is familiar with the physical principles of nuclear weapons understands that a nuclear charge is not eternal. Its "life" is very limited due to one of the most important characteristics of fissile substances - "half-life".
        This conditional value denotes the time during which the mass of fissile material is reduced by half, respectively, in order to maintain the charge mass at a level higher than critical (a necessary condition for the chain reaction of an explosive nature), it is put into the charge in a large amount, but it is not possible to increase the mass of the charge to infinity (expensive, unacceptable increase in weight and dimensions, etc.) The service life of the charge by calculation is determined quite approximately and is confirmed tests, therefore, go out of the moratorium first. hi

            You dear, it would be better if you supported your pants. Tests are very necessary, in the conditions of "obsolescence" of the product, it is extremely important to know whether it will work.

          Although there is mathematical modeling of the NRC ... On a super computer. But OST has a completely limited service life, in contrast to the OZ itself. So there is no need to put into effect the NRC. To test automation systems, various sensors, tests are necessary and will never stop.)))

          "Alpha decay, which is accompanied by the emission of helium nuclei, is the most common form of radioactive decay of isotopes of plutonium [111].

        I also agree with you about the 4th point. It is unclear what benefit from the moratorium. What will change with the fact that they will begin to test nuclear weapons. They will have to test on their territory. And the Americans will begin to test on the reefs of the Pacific Ocean.

              The accident at Fukushima-1 is just a cover for Japan's unsuccessful test of its own nuclear weapons. And although the tests were carried out under the control and with the assistance of the United States, they, together with the Japanese, could not calculate the increase in energy released from the stress relief in the earth's crust provoked by a deep explosion. This is precisely the reason for the off-design, catastrophic for the Japanese tsunami. And only prolonged inactivity (planned anticipation of the accident) and the advance provocation of the accident itself (for example, the installation of fuel tanks to power emergency generators below the station level, on the way of any, even a minor tsunami wave) gave the Japanese head out. Which, by the way, was confirmed by China.

      To refuse the INF Treaty for today is nonsense.
      And NOT because there are no potential goals for these complexes, but because there is no potential for their creation and production.
      Moreover, while in the short-range segment the military subtly hinted at the possibility of easily increasing the range of the iskander, then in the medium-range segment there is nothing even similar that can be redone. (do not really cut poplar)

      IMHO, the most promising is the development of hypersonic cruise missiles air (sea) based with a range of up to 5000 km.
      And it is not necessary to withdraw from the agreement, and potential goals will be under the gun.

    MOSCOW, October 31 - RAPSI. The defendant in the Oboronservice case, the former general director of the District Material Warehouse of the Moscow Air Force District, Maxim Zakutailo, has been released from the pre-trial detention center, where he spent a year in custody on charges of embezzlement, the RAPSI correspondent reports.

    The decision to release is due to the fact that the deadline for detention under the charged article of Zakutailo has already expired.

    In October last year, it became known that five criminal cases were initiated on the facts of fraud in transactions with real estate, land and shares belonging to Oboronservis. After that, several high-ranking officials, including Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov, lost their posts in the Ministry of Defense. More than 4 billion rubles were reported in damage.

    About six months ago, DAM, at a speech in the State Duma, defended Livanov in front of deputies, speaking out against the removal of the Ministry of Education. One of the theses of DAM was that Livanov is not a professional minister, and he is also studying, there are mistakes. And the deputies also came to the Duma not by professionals, and they learn in the process of work, etc., etc. In general, you need to understand and forgive.
    And somehow it became sad. After all, this is now such an approach at the state level. The main thing is his own and devoted, and as a specialist - the tenth thing. And I wanted to ask our prime minister just one question: would he want his attending physician, and even better, a surgeon, to train personally on him, gaining "invaluable experience"? Hardly! And on the people and the country, here you are! And in the Ministry of Internal Affairs, and medicine, and the defense industry, and education, and the economy - all of us are trained by people very far from the spheres they lead.

    A big plus for the article. In response to the deployment of missile defense, an adequate response will be to withdraw from the treaty on the limitation of short- and medium-range missiles. Our European "friends" (politicians and the population) must understand that by deploying American strategic weapons systems on their territory, they potentially include themselves in the list of targets for destruction. Such a decision would have cooled the ardor of the especially depressed Eastern European countries.

    Of course. any negotiations should be carried out, first of all, by specialists. But in any group there should be representatives of the Foreign Ministry. In the process of its activity, it was necessary to develop draft interstate documents. The help of specialists from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs was necessary and effective. Any international treaty is a comprehensive document of a military-political nature. Withdrawal from any agreement (OSV, INF), stimulates the start of an arms race, this is a sharp increase in the load on our not very strong economy. The US withdrawal from the ABM Treaty markedly increased the race for the production of missile defense systems. Purely military, the author is right.

    This whole treaty process in the field of arms control and reduction has never given our country at least some positive result. Absolutely nothing but loss and shame. Here are some milestones of the process.
    As "cool" is said, but the negotiation processes have never led to military action. For example, China, no loud statements, steady systematic work and the result is obvious. That's why they are negotiating so that even the absence of positive results have a winning situation, and not push each other's heads together.

Otherwise, more people come to power in one way or another with connections at the top of power and having some kind of loyalty to the leadership, and most likely the collected dirt on themselves and the people sitting in high offices.

    The topic of professionalism in negotiating with foreigners in the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation is still very relevant, especially when it comes to high-tech weapons of missile defense, air defense, automated control systems of aviation and communications. A similar situation occurred at the Russian-European negotiations after September 11, 2001. When, in the framework of the fight against air terrorism, the possibility was developed of the interaction of air defense systems. Here is a short excerpt from the report:
    This report presents the results of the September 13 and 14, 2005 experiment under the WISP sponsored by NATO, which demonstrated the information exchange between systems in Moscow and Warsaw. The experiment demonstrated the ability to exchange information to be implemented in Phase 2 of the WISP project under the auspices of the Russia-NATO Council. The main objective of the demonstration was to assess the practical feasibility of using existing systems and finished technologies as the basis for the implementation of the WISP requirements. In this regard, the experiment was completely successful. The hardware and software systems used by NATO for the exchange of information have demonstrated that there are already systems used in operational activities that can perform key WISP tasks without investing significant costs and efforts for refinement. The results from the Russian Federation were even more impressive. In just a few months, the Russian Federation was able to deploy a prototype information exchange system, which implemented a larger number of tasks compared to the system on the part of NATO. The prototype deployed by the Russian Federation functioned extremely well.

    One more thing: in a country with a decent number of agricultural universities, agriculture is run by all sorts of "successful managers", that is, crooks, for example, the Ryazan region, the head of Rosselkhoznadzor, "a teacher and a lawyer," but "a well-known businessman in the city," that is. e. a man with a dark past ...

    All is correct. I would say that NATO’s persistence in missile defense gives Russia a unique chance to raise the quality and quantity of our offensive weapons to a new height. And move away from a pronounced defensive doctrine based on political impotent people ...

    The article is very correct. Huge plus. Only after reading it makes me sick. Are there really no sensible and honest people left in a country like ours? Who is able to rake stupid Avdiev stables? The only things that come to mind are Chile and Pinochet.

    The article is good, I completely agree, in each area, when solving any problems, a professional should deal with this, this article is a cry from the soul of a person who knows the essence of the issue perfectly and sees gross mistakes when approaching the issue of missile defense. We have already been surrounded up and down, we must answer adequately, the installation of Iskander in the Kaliningrad region, this is not enough.

    So it is always so. Those who know little understand much. Who can do that. Who knows, he teaches. Who does not know and does not know how, he directs.

    And political scientists are abstrusely discussing the question of who will own the button in the future missile defense system. No, guys, no start button in missile defense systems. PRO is a fully automatic system.

    We call such "specialists" gynecologists.

    The author handed out effective managers quite well, but lawyers had to be handed down as well. These hookers wrote ordinary things in such a language that they can be understood as you want. Or hire another hook hat.

    From the article is pounded by hawk kirsa per kilometer. And let's bite ourselves with everyone, build an iron curtain and everything will be great. I won’t be surprised that the first one to oppose this in real life will be the same Khodorenok.

    Getting out of missile defense talks is stupid. No one bothers to develop national defense and means to overcome missile defense and at the same time diplomatically put pressure on opponents. Diplomacy isl weapons in the right hands.
    Quitting START will also be stupid. For for us this treaty has not limited anything for a long time, and to miss opportunities to limit the USA and control them is at least to some extent a considerable sense.
    Exiting the INF Treaty will be even more stupid. Do we need nuclear ballistic weapons in Poland and Romania? With a flight time of ten minutes! Is the author sure that a defunct national missile defense will protect us?
    Nuclear tests? Well, let's again develop and improve nuclear weapons. Let’s resume the nuclear race altogether, the country is full of money, we’ll sell some more oil. We’ll break the situation when the US decidively decides to upgrade B61 bombs or not ...

    Yes, obviously not enough!
    And in negotiations to resolve the country's security problems at the international level, “language” specialists need to be reinforced with security professionals. Empowerment and competence must be beneficially combined.

    In our kingdom-state, in every ministry, in any field of activity, exclusively "specialized" specialists, in a word, managers, supervise ... And what to expect with such an "effective" policy, if the tiler cooks porridge, and the cook puts the tiles? Maybe they purposefully put incapable managers in vital government bodies, so to speak, invisible but poisonous injections - euthanasia? ...

      It is beyond the strength of any enemy to pick up and install such a number of stupid managers. For many years the enemy has been acting wiser: he selects (or prepares) one or two with the "necessary" qualities and helps to build a system.

    This is not an article! This is an open letter to the President of the Russian Federation! Ready to sign up immediately. I’ll add my own five kopecks on my own :)) About thirty years ago, as the head of the research department for the combat use of air defense fighters, I once again conducted test aerial firing in Sary-Shagan. One clear night, I watched right above my head the excellent performance of a ballistic missile defense system. Rather, the results of the work, because everything happened outside the atmosphere. Can you imagine where we would be today in missile defense issues if it were not for the many impostor non-professionals that the author writes about?

    the author I agree with you, except (4. To quit the moratorium on nuclear weapons tests)

    I agree with the author of the article in the details.
    Outside of military specifics, there are good historical and cultural reasons to believe that in any contractual process the rich primitively wins.
    For example, under a contract, the rich surrounds himself with mercenaries, who for the time being do not count.
    For example, under a contract, the rich always has the opportunity to outstrip the quantitative indicators of his technical power.
    .
    The clever can show abilities and surpass the rich only with the freedom to choose a method of action (reaction).

    The author is right for the entire critical mass.
    The West brazenly "listens and eats". They firmly defend their interests, consistently bring Russia to the level of guaranteed defeat and impossibility of a retaliatory strike. The INF is a guarantee not only of the absence of American missile defense systems along the western perimeter (they would have thought of it a thousand times !!!), but also elementary respect for Big Brother in the east ..

    Someday 90-00 recognized as the years of the Great Russian shame, years of collapse and betrayal.
