The Proton-M rocket with a military satellite launched from the Baikonur cosmodrome

20

The rocket should launch the Raduga-1M communication device of the Russian Ministry of Defense into space. According to Interfax, this was stated by the Russian military department. This is the third launch of "Proton" after the accident that took place on 2 in July of this year.


According to the official representative of the press service and information department of the Ministry of Defense for EKR troops, Colonel Dmitry Zenin, the removal of the vehicle into the target orbit using the Proton-M launch vehicle, as well as the Briz-M upper stage, will take about nine hours .

"EKR troops using ground-based automatic control systems provided control over the launch of the Proton-M rocket with the Raduga-1M spacecraft, launched from the Baikonur cosmodrome at 03: 46 Moscow Time," he said.

In 03: 55 Moscow time, there was a planned separation of the upper stage with the satellite from the launch vehicle. According to Zenin, the launch of the satellite into the target orbit is scheduled for 12: 47 Moscow time. He added that both the launch of the Proton-M rocket and the separation of the upper stage with the satellite proceeded normally. “The further launch of the spacecraft into the target orbit will be carried out with the help of four start-ups of the Briz-M upper stage engines,” the colonel noted.

The third-generation military communications satellite, Raduga-1M, is included in the Unified Space Satellite System of the second stage. The device was manufactured by Reshetnev Information Satellite Systems OJSC.

      It was just that the Americans were told the wrong start time and they did not have time to turn off the sensors.

    Hm .. In the morning the satellite was military. From 10 o’clock on the news feeds it was renamed to meteorological. Will the weather be monitored over West Point? And who cares? What kind of camouflage?

    We changed the leadership, strengthened control over the assembly, and here are the results, mistakes are very expensive for us.

      For the idea +. For details -. The management was changed - an awl for soap. Control over the assembly - the missiles are flying from the old reserve, even "that assembly".

    the launch of the Proton-M rocket, as well as the separation of the upper stage with the satellite, took place as usual.
    It should always be this way!

    Wait for new news. The satellite will be called agricultural to monitor the growth of wheat in the vastness of North America. As in Soviet times, we did not launch military satellites, all satellites were of purely peaceful significance.

    Some information about the satellite:
    The “Rainbow-1M” spacecraft (GUKOS index - 17Ф15М, codename “Globus-1М”) is a third-generation military communications satellite included in the Unified Space Satellite Communication System of the 2 stage (ЕССС-2). These satellites are a further development of the Raduga-1 spacecraft, but judging by the available data, they are manufactured by ISS on a more modern satellite platform. Like the previous model, the Rainbow-1M spacecraft should provide relaying of communication signals in four frequency ranges: L-, C-, X- and Ka-.
    The previous model of the Rainbow-1M spacecraft (Rainbow-1) was developed and underwent a full cycle of experimental testing at NPO PM (the old name of JSC ISS), but due to the heavy loading of its plant, production was transferred to the Omsk PO Polet "

    Payload

    Since the Raduga-1M spacecraft is intended to replace the satellites of the previous generation and will be operated at the same stationary points, it carries advanced Raduga-1 spacecraft repeaters.

    In addition to the STATSIONAR repeaters already used for the “Gran” spacecraft, in 1977 the USSR registered at five points X-band GALS transponders (8 / 7 GHz) for fixed communications and VOLNA L band (1,6 / 1,5 GHz) for mobile communications . As a result, next-generation satellites (Rainbow-1) used two relays as payloads to transmit telephone and telegraph information for strategic and operational communications in the interests of the Ministry of Defense, government communications, and television programs.

    The first of the repeaters worked in the 8 / 7 GHz band (X-band) and served to provide government and military communications. Repeaters were notified to the International Frequency Registration Committee (ITU-R) under the name “Hals” (designations from Gals-1 to Gals-18, excluding Gals-13).

    C-band repeaters have been registered with ITU-R under the names Hospital and Station-D. They served to transmit television programs to the network of Orbit stations. In addition, L-band Volna repeaters (1 / 1,5 GHz) were placed on the Raduga-1,6 spacecraft for communication with air and ground vehicles.

    Also, onboard equipment was installed for operation in the Ka-band, as well as in the millimeter wave range (“Tor” repeaters with a frequency of 20, 42, 44 GHz). On the other hand, multipath antennas and more advanced signal processing methods were used onboard the SC, which increased the throughput and noise immunity of satellite channels

    I live in the Altai Mountains, the launch was announced in advance and warned of the steps falling, at 7 in the morning (in our time) something fell down so the house trembled, the dogs howled. I thought about the earthquake, but it wasn’t it. Everywhere they write that everything went fine, that I doubt it.

      Most likely an explosion in the air, a rocket seized the discharge from the ionosphere - now the sun is active, on the 10th the outbreak was to the Earth - it could well close the layers.
      If so, then nothing fell except small fragments, just a strong electronic sound, the animals are afraid of it.
      Brains have long been pumped out of the Russian Federation - the Americans postponed their launch on Proton several times, waited for the calm ionosphere, but here the propaganda is steeper and the population is more trusting.

          This is lightning from a height of 80 km to the ground through a rocket - similar to the discharge in the explosion of a comet in Chelyabinsk.
          Columbia also passed through the shuttle, so there the spread of parts was 2000 km along the trajectory.
          It’s just that a step’s fall is heard only next to it like an accident on the road, and if it gets into the fuel it blows up and is heard far away, like a sound barrier crossing, only stronger.
          Interestingly, the glow in the evening will be in the sky or not - sometimes visible with a close impact. Only if there is a funnel, it is better not to climb - they are radioactive 2 ... 3 weeks.

            You can see the glow of ionization around the rear of the rocket above the engines.
            The skirt is so bluish - there is current, but voltage also increases with height - beyond discharge physics - Proton perfectly replaces a voltmeter, money does not matter ... (C)

      This useless load is "heavy" in certain circles, and it's best not to shit in space.
