FT: Russian satellite in orbit behaves suspiciously

The Russian object of an undeclared assignment, launched into orbit in May 2014, behaves suspiciously and may be a "satellite killer", according to the online edition Ведомости with reference to the newspaper "Financial Times".

FT: Russian satellite in orbit behaves suspiciously


“In recent weeks, amateur astronomers have observed an extremely unusual orbital behavior of an 2014-28E object, the tracking number Norad 39765. This facility, launched by Russia in May 2014 along with the three telecommunications satellites of the Defense Ministry "Rodnik", moved closer to various Russian space objects, and over the weekend flew to the rocket in orbit that launched it into orbit, ”the newspaper writes.

The publication believes that the object may have a civilian purpose (for example, the inspection of satellites or the evacuation of space debris), and military. And since Russia did not announce his appointment, he “arouses suspicions of a certain kind” to observers.

The newspaper reminded readers of the Soviet military satellite "Almaz", the program "Fighter of satellites", collapsed after the collapse of the USSR, and suggested that "the backlog of them probably stayed in Russia." “In the context of cooling relations with the United States, the resumption of this program is visible,” the newspaper writes.

«Whatever it is, this (2014-28E object) gives the impression of an experiment. ”, - said the employee of the research center "Chatham House" Patricia Lewis. She did not rule out that the device "is capable of attacking enemy satellites with the help of kinetic projectiles, electronic warfare and cyber attacks."

      Finally, and I’m still thinking when will Soviet technology be put into practice. The US Armed Forces are still tied to GPS, whether it be ground forces or air or naval forces.
      There, if I’m not mistaken, 10 charges in each of 400 pieces of 5-10 mm in diameter each, the satellite is aimed at the enemy satellite and shoots 400 balls, which with high speed demolish the target.

      Information:
      Satellite Fighter (IC) - the Soviet anti-satellite weapons program, which led to the deployment of the EC-A system (И2П, 4Я11) in 1970 — 1980х years. Initially, it was supposed to launch the IC using the UR-200, but after the cessation of the development of the UR-200, Flying, Cyclone-2 and Cyclone-2A launch vehicles were used instead.

      The project has been developed since 1960 at OKB-155 (?) Under the direction of A.I. Mikoyan. The idea of ​​the complex was proposed by V. Chelomey. For the first time in the world, a space defense system (PKO) was developed on the basis of maneuvering spacecraft equipped with homing heads and targets. It was intended to destroy artificial Earth satellites for military purposes, including maneuvering in orbit.

      The complex included a highly maneuverable spacecraft "IS", RN, starting and technical positions, the main command and computing center.

      In the first two trial launches of the IP spacecraft, the ИХNUMХП configuration was used, which served to test the engines and control systems of the device. The first launch was made on November 1 1 of the year, the second - on April 1963 of the year 12; the vehicles were designated Flight-1964 and Flight-1, respectively. After this, the interceptors IS-A or I2P and the targets IS-P or I2M were launched. The 2 targets of the IS-P were launched, after which they were replaced with cheaper satellites DS-P4-M “Tulip”, which were launched as part of the Dnepropetrovsk satellite program, and later replaced with “Lira”.

      In 1978, the complex was put into service, and was on alert until 1993. The IC was launched into orbit by the Cyclone-2 carrier rocket, it ensured the interception of the target already on the second or subsequent orbits and hit the enemy spacecraft with a directed flow (explosion) of striking elements.

But then a group of rebels appears, just do not know what dissatisfied with and overthrow the legally elected Palpatine.

              "ZV" is a very deep film. Its essence is in the story that any "democracy" is always (even somewhere in a distant, distant galaxy) an instrument of evil and how easily this evil takes power from a toothless democracy, where rights prevail over responsibilities. The empire in this film is analogous to the United States, and Darth Vader is analogous to the president. It remains to find out who is the Dark Lord in the USA - the secret ruler ...

          Space is considered by Americans as the most important militarily space - they have there communication satellites, and navigation satellites, and reconnaissance satellites, and combat control satellites. And other debris is enough, plus options for hypersonic shock drone flights are being worked out. The entire ground group is tightly tied at the moment in space, that neither type of weapon is amazing accuracy with the use of GPS. And if it is not, then what accuracy will there be, or will the weapon refuse to fire at all? Wherever you throw a wedge everywhere. Not played enough in star wars since the collapsed SOI. Therefore, they are very nervous when there is something unusual and incomprehensible to them in space, and especially if this incomprehensible belongs to Russia.

        A rebuttal of the view that the 2014-28E object that attracted the attention of the press is a model of space weapons.

        “Firstly, Cosmos-2499, as it was later named in the Russian notice sent to the UN, can only be a mini-satellite with a mass of up to 50 kilograms - taking into account the mass of the payload that Rokot can bring to close to a circular orbit with an altitude of the order of 1,5 thousands of kilometers, and a mass of three not very small “Springs”.

        Secondly, if traditional engines were used on it, taking into account the limited fuel reserves, he could perform a very small number of maneuvers ... The conclusion is: something new is being tested on the device, most likely a certain miniature engine. ”

        Thirdly: there is an information message that appeared on the website of the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology: it stated that correction units based on a new generation of Hall type plasma engines, which were developed at the Keldysh Center, successfully started working in orbit. Perhaps this has something to do with the 2014-28E object?

        PS all they need to chew ...

          I think the best concept in this case is to quietly join all non-satellites and hang a small mine on them. Let's say 1-2 kg, taking into account the mass of the control circuits. Naturally remotely controlled. And let yourself fly as much as you like. If you get sick - undermining, selective or universal. And nothing needs to start in the conditions of the conflict that has begun. Everything is already there. And in order not to produce a large number of debris in orbit, the warhead is not a high-explosive action, which will destroy the target to shreds, but burn the carcass with a cumulative plop.

          All own satellites, however, equip elements of self-defense against similar actions of others. For example, a small "canister" for several charges with the ability to target. An uninvited object approached at a distance of 5-20 m, did not pass the identification "friend or foe" - hold a handful of buckshot. Well, or a cumulative jet towards almost point-blank.

This is an "inspection" spacecraft practicing the technology of intercepting and disabling the payload of the enemy spacecraft without being hit by balls, which will lead to the creation of a large cloud of space debris, as the Chinese did.

        Balls are weapons of the last century. They will fly for a long time, then, in their orbits, demolishing everything in a row.
        It is not necessary to demolish the satellite physically. A laser pulse is enough to simply disable the satellite’s optical sensors. Or local radio interference if it is a communications satellite.

          In the 80s, we tested some kind of jammer, and so as not to interfere with anyone, the antenna was sent up. After a few hours, which was required for tuning, it went out of orbit and burned in dense layers of the atmosphere an American satellite, accidentally falling
          into the beam.

There was already an article from specialists close to this program. The additional satellite launched into orbit for the 3 military communications satellites is an experimental satellite for testing a new version of the ion plasma engine. He has nothing to do with star wars.

      In Russia, explained the functions of "satellite killer"
      The hype raised in Western media over the appearance of a new Russian “killer of satellites” in orbit is politically motivated, a Russian space technology expert said in an interview with Interfax.
      The expert refuted the view that the 2014-28E object that attracted the attention of the press was a model of space weapons.

      “Firstly, Cosmos-2499, as it was later named in the Russian notice sent to the UN, can only be a mini-satellite with a mass of up to 50 kilograms - taking into account the mass of the payload that Rokot can bring to close to a circular orbit with an altitude of the order of 1,5 thousands of kilometers, and a mass of three not very small “Springs”.

      Secondly, if traditional engines were used on it, taking into account the limited fuel reserves, he could perform a very small number of maneuvers ... The conclusion is: something new is being tested on the device, most likely a kind of miniature engine, ”the specialist noted.

    Seriously, the so-called we had killer satellites designed to destroy military spacecraft in orbits passing over the territory of the USSR. The system ensured the interception and defeat of target satellites in one or two turns of the interceptor's flight in descending or ascending turns. An interceptor weighing about 2,4 t is equipped with an orientation system, a powerful propulsion system with large fuel reserves, allowing for a wide maneuver in space. In front was an antenna of a homing radar head, behind it a cylindrical instrument compartment with systems providing communication and data exchange with a ground-based complex. To destroy the target, two warheads of fragmentation-cumulative action served. At launch, the warheads were folded and revealed only after entering orbit.
    Actually, the interception could be carried out in a single-turn version: in this case, the IS itself reached the target and independently carried out its destruction without contacting the Earth and without adjusting the control program. This interception scheme is faster, but the probability of destroying the target is lower. In the two-turn version, a flight correction program was transmitted on board through the coil after the launch, which reduced the errors of launching the interceptor into the affected area.

    Killer satellites destroyed victim satellites at altitudes from 250 to 1000 km, confirming the possibility of destroying all US military satellites except geostationary. In 1973, the complex was put into trial operation, and after a little refinement in 1978, it entered the arsenal of the Soviet Army.
    It seems that they then abandoned them in favor of missiles launched from the MiG-31

    Launch and "disaster" of a military satellite

    Presumably, the Financial Times has in mind the launch of the Soyuz-2.1a launch vehicle with a military satellite from the Plesetsk cosmodrome. Start took place on May 6. The spacecraft, which received the serial number Cosmos-2495, was successfully put into orbit and taken into control by the Aerospace Defense Forces.

    In mid-September, the strategic command of the US armed forces announced that the satellite exploded over America. East Kazakhstan oblast denied this statement, saying Washington’s message was “another attempt to find out the whereabouts of the Russian space object they lost.”

    The representative of East Kazakhstan Oblast troops, Colonel Alexei Zolotukhin, emphasized that the main center for reconnaissance of the space situation conducts global monitoring not only of Russian satellites, but also of all space objects of artificial origin, including foreign ones, at altitudes from 120 thousand to 40 thousand km, with constant updating information about them. “And not“ with a high degree of certainty “, as in the strategic command of the US armed forces, but in fact in real time,” the military said.

    HOW THE SATELLITE "COSMOS-2495" WORKS

    The Cosmos-2495 satellite is part of the Cobalt-M specialized series of optical optical reconnaissance satellites, which are used for the surveillance system and for detailed photographing of the earth's surface and developed at TsSKB-Progress in Samara. The cost of one satellite in this series, for example, Cosmos-2480, is 1 billion rubles. Cobalt-M satellites are shooting on film. The resolution of the optics is up to 30 cm. Photos are delivered to Earth in special capsules, which, after landing, are delivered to the Space Intelligence Center for processing.

    The satellite’s first launch of this series - Cosmos-2410 - took place on September 24, 2004.

    Planes behave suspiciously, submarines behave suspiciously, tank columns behave suspiciously, Putin behaves suspiciously, now the satellites are suspicious too. One "Financial Times" behaves as usual. Easy and fun. But there are also suspicious bees. And this "w-w-w" for a reason. The bees suspect something.

    They’re afraid they don’t know what flies there. You will get a trindet on the nose. You might think that they only launch scientific satellites there.

    And if you put him on the trajectory of ballistic missiles, he can also spill the fence on their way smile

      Satellites do not fly along the trajectory of ballistic missiles, too low - it is a TRAJECTORY, not an ORBIT!

    They didn’t have anyone to take a glass from in orbit ...

    They’ll figure it out for three, and for continuation of the banquet they’ll go tear color from Yusov’s satellites.

    Secondly, if traditional engines were used on it, taking into account the limited fuel reserves, he could perform a very small number of maneuvers ...

    And he has a device for draining fuel from tanks of enemy satellites! Ukraine has wise up! bully

    A very helpful article! It should be reminded that we are launching not only the unfortunate Phobos and the hapless GLONASS, but also the things that lead the "progressive humanity" to the state of mindfulness.
    I plated it. Although, a simple reprint of the translation of The Financial Times article, "Object 2014-28E - space debris or Russian anti-satellite weapons?" makes a deeper and more complete impression.
