Plesetsk prepared for CEN satellite launch

At the Plesetsk cosmodrome, the necessary infrastructure was created to launch the latest satellites as part of the deployment of the Unified Space System, reports RIA News with reference to the representative of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation Alexey Zolotukhin.

Plesetsk prepared for CEN satellite launch

“The creation of the Unified Space System (CEN) will allow Russia to detect launches of both existing and prospective ballistic missiles from the waters of the World Ocean and from the territories of countries conducting tests. TSA will replace missile attack warning systems developed in Soviet times, ”said Zolotukhin.

He said that “CECs will include spacecraft of a new generation, as well as upgraded command posts that will ensure control of the orbital grouping, receiving and processing information in automatic mode.” In 2015, the first stage of the system will be deployed, and by 2018, 10 satellites will be included in it.

“As part of the creation of the Unified Space System, work is currently underway at the northern cosmodrome to create ground infrastructure to prepare for the launch of the CEN spacecraft,” the officer said.

Zolotukhin reminded that “the most important event in the development of the Armed Forces of the East Kazakhstan region in 2014 was the beginning of flight tests of the Angara space launch complex and the successful implementation of the first test launches of the Angara-1.2PP light launch vehicle in July and the heavy Angara-A5 in late December ". In total, last year, ten launches of space rockets were made from the Plesetsk cosmodrome.

      the enemies aren’t so hot, they write to us that oil prices have fallen to the damned Khan, they will now be hired to go to work as guest workers, and the United States will be in splendor and splendor.
      Well, it's in my dreams, but in reality .........

    It works factories, electronics do, appliances, rockets, engines. KB work. Metallurgy works, and on rare earths too.
    And this raises the level of ALL Russian industry.

      Yes, it seems like in the 66th they started, they didn’t stop what . From the 70th to the 90th, more than from Baikonur they filmed, sometimes even the weather went crazy, from these launches request

    You'll see soon, Baikonur will not be so important, and renting it seems to be cheaper.
      TECHNOLOGY 9 January 2015 17: 32
      East and build as opposed to Baikonur. Although, maybe there will remain.

    It is good that the system will allow you to track any ballistic missile launches. There should not be a sudden attack. good

      At the Plesetsk cosmodrome, a test launch of the intercontinental ballistic missile of the mine base of the Topol-M complex was carried out ... the warhead of the rocket hit a conditional target at the range of the Kamchatka Peninsula with high accuracy

      here is not a space, but a completely mundane rocket launch

    Now, to protect this system, it is urgently necessary to create a device that can withstand the American and others like them shuttle-drones of the X-37B type. And judging by how our stubbornly silent about the satellite, which "by itself" plows the cosmic space - in this direction ours are already working)))

      Similar combat spacecraft for the destruction of enemy spacecraft were created back in the 70's. in the days of the USSR, their combat use including on the X-37V is relevant now.
      ps For reference: Destruction of alien spacecraft by both us and the adversaries is actually military aggression against this country !!! nobody will do that at the moment. There are a number of other hidden (implicit) methods that turn spacecraft into uncontrolled flying scrap metal.

    "first stage" is how many satellites out of 10?

    It’s a pity, of course, Baikonur, but now it’s on the territory of another state ... It is necessary to develop Plesetsk and Vostochny, as the first power to space!

    Oh, if we could build a reconnaissance and target designation system ... Then you can launch missiles from outer space at AUG and other figuins. But Vostochny will be commissioned and it will be very good. Can drag part of the production inland.
