Rocket "Rokot" put into orbit communications satellites "Gonets-M"

Office of the press service and information Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation reports that 3 July in 16: 43 Moscow time from the State test site Plesetsk in the Arkhangelsk region launched a light-class carrier rocket (PH) “Rokot”, which successfully put three Russian Gonets-M communications spacecraft into the calculated orbit.

Rocket "Rokot" put into orbit communications satellites "Gonets-M"

“The launch of the Rokot rocket launcher and the launching of spacecraft into orbit took place in a normal mode,” the press service notes.

Communication satellites Gonets-M entered the calculated orbit in 18: 28 in Moscow time, after which they were transferred to the customer for management. He will control them during orbital flight.

      Again, as the start is not from Baikonur, everything is fine, probably, it will be necessary to finish with Baikonur after entering East.

        I agree with you. I heard that Kazakhstan is going to put its satellite into orbit and is going to oust the Russians from Baikonur. Perhaps the last problems with the launch of Proton are connected with this.

            When I served a conscription service at Baikonur, just at the site where the "proton" takes off, there were no accidents (at least for the military), but the civilians had an emergency launch. But when the units were completely reduced and all objects were transferred to civilians, accidents began ... regularly

      It can be seen that the Rokot is actually our silo-based ballistic missile. The fact that the launch went off without a hitch, I must also say thanks to the Soviet rocket engineers. However, the news is very good. good

    It is necessary to restore order with the Proton launch vehicle. And then they’ve already killed a lot of satellites. And the damage to the image was not weak ..

    I just read this news on "Made by us". We must popularize our achievements! Hooray!

    Soon we will all say: GLONASS - RULIT! smile

    According to Roskosmos, these three Gonets-M spacecraft are to increase the orbital constellation of the Gonets satellite system from 7 to 10 satellites. The system is designed to provide personal communications and data transmission of various types, including the coordinate-time data of the GLONASS satellite coordination system. Communication is carried out through a constellation of low-flying spacecraft deployed at an altitude of 1400 kilometers.

    When we finish Vostochny, then it will be possible to close the "Kazakhstan" project. After all, apart from Baikonur, Kazakhstan has nothing else for its soul! And such kooks bend that where the US is with its missile defense system.

    Well, thank God - SUCCESSFULLY! Congratulations to everyone involved in this event!
    And then I had a question, can Protons fall on Baikonur for a reason?
    Already, the "angry" petition from the Kazakhs was sent "personally to Putin", demanding to PROHIBIT the launches of Protons. Can FOR THIS THEY AND FALLS?

    The only unsuccessful launch took place on October 8, 2005. At the launch of the Cryosat satellite developed by ESA, the Briz-KM upper stage was not separated. As a result, a bundle from the second stage of Rokot and the booster block fell in the Arctic Ocean between the North Pole and the Canadian Arctic coast. The problem lay in the abnormal operation of the software for the control system of the upper stage, which did not form the required commands for the separation of the second stage and the space head part.
    All the rest are successful. It seems the 19th, chtoli?

    And besides Plesetsk, we also have a launch pad at the equator somewhere, well, they rarely start from there, although they say that the cheapest start is from the equator.
    We will establish, of course, everything with time and we will calculate the pests.
