Russia, it's time to develop a military space program

Russia should cease to be “space cab drivers” and take up the development of combat cosmonautics, said Igor Ashurbeyli, chairman of the Presidium of the Independent Expert Council on Aerospace Defense Problems (WEC EKO), on the eve of Cosmonautics Day RIA News.

Igor Ashurbeyli stressed that today Russia fulfills all international restrictions related to the militarization of space. “And, in my opinion, no one except us does not fulfill them. It's time to seriously engage in the development of the Russian military space program. Fortunately, the situation created by our “partners” allows it, ”said Ashurbeyli.

Earlier, at the general meeting of the EECE wind power station members, Igor Ashurbeyli declared the inevitability of the militarization of space. “Moreover, it is vital. And the formula for the strategic development of the industry is as follows: “From the Air Defense-PRO-VKO through the Global Information Integration to the Combat Cosmonautics,” said Igor Ashurbeyli.

He noted that “in the medium term, it is the cosmonauts who will have to become the advanced detachment of the aerospace defense of our country and turn from testers-researchers and engineers into soldiers and defenders of the Fatherland. And in the long run - and all of humanity on an international scale. "

        These "tourists" pay 60 million dollars for one "passenger"! Nice minibus. Is this money superfluous for the national cosmonautics?

      Space is demilitarized by agreement, because all satellites are "geodetic" and "communications" or there are "meteorological", but the deployment of strike weapons as well as systems about there is directly prohibited.

        And meanwhile -
        GLONASS satellites malfunctioned
        15 April 2014,
        Eight GLONASS satellites were simultaneously out of order for half an hour on Tuesday night, the Roscosmos Information and Analytical Center reported.

        According to the daily monitoring of the GLONASS system, published on the center’s website, a few minutes before the night of April 15, the spacecraft No. 747, 743, 717, 737, 738, 720, 732 and 735 showed a sign of "ill" in their ephemeris. This condition persisted for half an hour.

        As you might guess, the reason for such one-time events might be. "someone else's influence" ...
        So it makes sense to think and act!

          “There was a half-hour failure, we managed to quickly fix it,” Nikolay Testoedov, general director and general designer of ISS named after Reshetnev, a manufacturer of GLONASS satellites, told Izvestia. “We are now switching to an updated control loop, this is a huge and lengthy one. work, with new tools, new mathematics. Therefore, sometimes there are failures. What we can, we debug on Earth, but unfortunately not everything can be "caught" by ground means. Now, I think, we have eliminated the permissible number of errors. "

      In the USSR, a laser pistol for cosmonauts was developed and at the SALUT or MIR station there was even a cannon for self-defense. There were many projects "space fighter" launched from "MRIYA air launch" of the mini-shuttle type. the layout was even in space.

    To begin with, you need a small, controlled spacecraft (to revive Lozinsky's projects), learn how to quickly maneuver, change the orbit. Well, then only take up arms. To begin with, you can practice on your spent satellites. And to use "cheap weapons" - like a bucket of nails. And you can train with "dry" ice. Throwing pellets on the opposite courses of old satellites.
    Then things will go.

    It's high time, the Yankees will soon bring their Boeing X-37, and we have nothing. "Spiral" and "Energia-Buran" should not be forgotten, probably, and their own orbital station should be built, especially if one dreams of bases on the Moon, as Rogozin has already announced.

    Is this even possible?
    1. desant_doktor
      desant_doktor April 15 2014 14: 24
      Most likely no. The S-300 in the PMU1 version has a maximum interception height for ballistic targets of 27 km. Further. The maximum target speed for this complex is about 3 km / s, the speed of the meteorite upon entering the atmosphere, according to various estimates, was 18-19 km / s. The meteorite explosion was at an altitude of about 25-27 km. That is, the rocket could reach it in height, but the speed of the meteorite falling was very high for this complex. In addition, due to the high flight speed, it is very doubtful that the complex's radar would take the target for tracking. Targets with such a speed can (theoretically) only intercept missiles of missile defense systems, such as the A-135 "Amur". Well, also, probably, modifications of the S-400.

    Well, it means it's time to send all our so-called partners on a "long erotic journey" and do what is beneficial to us, and not look back at what "friends" will say and how they will look.

    The project of the Lozino-Lozinsky aerospace aircraft for maneuvering space combat with entry into the atmosphere and exit, a change in orbit height and direction of flight was back in the days of the Buran program. There was even a model of such an apparatus. We need to get the project out of the cloth.

    That’s why I became suspicious when I saw the surname - Ashurbeyli. Ashurbeyli may be a "shit", but "combat cosmonautics" (BC) really needs to be developed and urgently! If we take into account the neighboring developing China (developing in the sense of introducing the idea of ​​the absolute hegemony of Great China over the whole world into the minds of the Chinese); popularizing the US concept: "PRO - for every square meter of Europe and closer to Moscow!" - in the future without BC Russia not obbyis.Esli NATO will remind Russia about peaceful space, then you can politely assure: "Remove military bases further from Russia and expel from your" sharashka "fuck 2/3 NATO members, you will have a peaceful space!

During the collapse of the USSR, the betrayal of those in power affected many areas, including this one. A lot of work has been done, you just need to bring what Lozino-Lozinsky started to the end.

    I would say that combat astronautics is certainly cool. But look at what we fly into space. Schematic diagrams of spacecraft have not changed for several decades. And rocket engines in general since the days of Werner Von Braun. There is nothing fundamentally new. It seems that the development of near space to Mars inclusive of the region is difficult without the development of new engines, and the development of deep space beyond the asteroid belt is generally impossible. Work on nuclear engines has been going on almost since the 60s and that's all.
    We must do something, otherwise we will remain in a near-orbit.
