At the Pentagon alarmed by the "behavior" of the Russian satellite

The Pentagon leadership held a series of secret meetings because of the "mysterious Russian military satellite", located between the two devices of Intelsat, actively cooperating with the US Department of Defense. Reports about it Look with reference to Space News.


Museum of Communications named after A.S. Popova in St. Petersburg

"The mysterious Russian military satellite was located between two Intelsat satellites in geosynchronous orbit for five months this year, which alarmed the company's management and led to a number of secret meetings in the US Department of Defense," the newspaper writes.

"Seven months after launch," continues Space News, "the spacecraft is located on 18,1 degrees west longitude between the satellites Intelsat 7 and Intelsat 901, which are at an altitude of about 36 thousand km near the equator at 18,2 and 18 degrees West longitude."

According to the newspaper, "the Russian satellite was approaching the Intelsat devices at a distance of 10 km, so close that company leaders decided that their satellites were in danger."

"This is abnormal behavior, and we are concerned about them," Space News quotes the head of the consortium, Kay Sears. “Cosmos is a space that must be protected.”

However, Sears noted that “the Russian satellite did not interfere with the operation of the company's spacecraft”. According to her, Intelsat "tried to contact the owners of the Russian satellite directly and through the Ministry of Defense, but received no response."

"They don't keep in touch," Sears said. - They do not cooperate with us. This is irresponsible. ”

The newspaper explains that we are talking about the Luch spacecraft, which is another satellite of a multifunctional space relay system being created as part of the RF space program for the period 2006-2015.

According to the newspaper “Vzglyad”, “the Luch relay system is designed to provide the Russian segment of the International Space Station with communication, low-orbit spacecraft, launch vehicles, upper stages with ground stations”.

        There, from whom are they going to protect space?
        From aliens?
        Or again from the Russians?

        She herself says that there is no threat to their companions.

        And how interesting is Sears going to defend herself?
        Barriers to put near "their" companions?

            Yes, it was just a polite companion. And polite companions as well as polite people greet everyone. And since it is not accepted to greet at a distance, the polite companion flew closer to greet, that's the whole secret. hi

                I read somewhere that the American shuttles were specially designed with a manipulator in the cargo compartment to capture Soviet satellites. I don’t know - true or not - but ... But what? But what if?...

                In general, “close” in cosmic terms is a bit different from “close” on Earth. And why did they stir up there? There are no billions per 100 light-years around the solar system of our satellites. Let Intelsats fly there - there are many places ... The Voyager is still flying somewhere ...

            In Soviet times, we had good “satellites” - 8K69. And the riddles in them were good - more than two megatons. It is a pity that under the OSV-2 treaty they were cut even under Andropov. I once spoke with a major military representative under a glass of tea in the early 90s, he told me - it was breathtaking from such "companions" and the tears welling up that they were cut ...

              8k69 is the orbital R-36. Under the agreement, the OSV-2 missiles with orbital warheads were withdrawn from service. The point is that an ordinary warhead flies along a ballistic trajectory, which is not difficult to calculate, knowing the launch site. And the orbital warhead can begin to decline at any time in orbit around the Earth within one revolution.

          Satellite .. like a satellite ... WE DO NOT HIDE AND EXPLAIN EVERYONE - A RELAY! His job is RELAY! A little bit of our information ... a little bit from satellites for the US Ministry of Defense - Intelsat, a little from Martian (after all, what’s interesting ... what the Martians and the Martians say, how much oats and potatoes are in your markets ...) ... By the way , the latter did not file complaints about this with the UN Committee for the Protection of Sexual Minorities ... Have you felt sorry !? And why do we have to explain ... with what joy? Indeed, the launch of a spacecraft of this type is not included in the program of cooperation between ROSKOSMOS and NASA!
          The space is big! There is NO sign of the GAI "BRICK"! WHERE WE WANT, THERE ARE AND "TIED" ORBITS OUR KA!

            In stationary orbit, the repeaters hang. Spies have nothing to do there - too far away - 35786 kilometers above sea level. Spyware fly much lower.

      The Luch-5A and Luch-5B spacecraft occupy the orbital positions 167 ° E. and 16 ° W respectively.
      Luch-5В spacecraft - 95 ° East
      On November 3 2012 of the year at 01 hour 04 minutes 00 seconds Moscow time, the Luch-5B spacecraft were launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome
      Launched with the Yamal 300-K spacecraft.

      The purpose of the Luch-5B spacecraft.
      Exchange of information of various kinds, including television, with AKA and PKA, primarily with the ISS Russian segment;
      Relay of target information from the NCA;
      Relay of telemetric information from LV, RB and other objects of the RCT;
      Relay signals "Call NKU" from the NKA;
      Relaying information from automatic stations of the hydrometeorological system of Roshydromet;
      Relay signals of automatic beacons of the international rescue system “COSPAS-SARSAT”;
      Relay of corrective signals for the GLONASS global navigation system.

        In fact, for good, we should inform them about the maneuvers of our devices in geostationary orbit. Each of them has a specific place and each country receives quotas. If the satellite is defective, then it can be carried to other repeaters, which will not lead to anything good.

    I already take America’s “Concern” for granted, if it’s not concern, it will be “concern.” In essence, what can Russia be blamed for “the Russian satellite did not interfere with the work of the company's spacecraft”? If there is nothing to hide, then why such a concern? We have the whole country and people a "mystery" for Washington. Russian President’s birthday is celebrated by launching cruise missiles. Soon, the Day of National Unity, as we will celebrate, has not been discussed yet ..

      Do not rage. The location of the satellites in the geostationary orbit should be such that a small number of frequencies intended for communication do not lead to overlapping frequencies of different devices during reception and transmission, as well as to exclude their collision. This is determined by the relevant agreements. hi

    “The mysterious Russian military satellite was located between two Intelsat satellites in geosynchronous orbit for five months this year
    So, our satellite, and wanders anywhere, or rather where we want. The next time it can not only hang, be found. True, this time, he, too, was not just present ...

    And I have a question: what was written on the satellite that it was from the Russian Federation ??? The Americans seem to have some kind of paranoia. Soon every meeting of the US leadership will begin with the words: Russians are coming, Russians are everywhere, Russians have tricked us (replaced due to censorship).

      It’s just that when you launch a spacecraft, including a satellite, you can easily track which cosmodrome it was launched from; moreover, according to international agreements, countries don’t make a secret of which satellites are launched on a particular carrier, that is, Russia directly says that something rocket, from such a cosmodrome and such a date, we launch such and such satellites ... That's the truth nobody discloses their real purpose)))). So the Americans were expecting an ordinary communication satellite, which would just hang out somewhere, and it just hung right between their satellites ... And how they were hysterical about our satellite from the "space" series (if I remember correctly), purpose which we still haven’t clarified and which is capable of changing its orbit very well and has come close to their companions many times ...)))))

    The confrontation on earth will sooner or later spread into space, such is the logic of technological development.

    The Americans there in space for many years, the uninhabited spacecraft X-37 flies, snoops, then sits down, recharges and again into space.

    The Chinese 2-3 years ago also showed their anti-satellite satellites in action.

    The creation of space weapons is ongoing, and in this part Russia should not lag behind and will not lag behind.

    The situation on earth will calm down - it will also be quieter in space.

    The mysterious Russian military satellite was located between two Intelsat satellites in geosynchronous orbit for five months this year, which alarmed the company's management and led to a series of secret meetings at the US Department of Defense, ”the newspaper writes.

    Celebrate five months.
    "Seven months after launch," continues Space News, "the spacecraft is located on 18,1 degrees west longitude between the satellites Intelsat 7 and Intelsat 901, which are at an altitude of about 36 thousand km near the equator at 18,2 and 18 degrees West longitude."

    So five or seven months?
    According to the newspaper, "the Russian satellite was approaching the Intelsat devices at a distance of 10 km, so close that company leaders decided that their satellites were in danger."

    "This is abnormal behavior, and we are concerned about them," Space News quotes the head of the consortium, Kay Sears. “Cosmos is a space that must be protected.”

    However, Sears noted that "the Russian satellite did not interfere with the work of the company's spacecraft."

    And what is the abnormal behavior if it did not interfere with the operation of your spacecraft? That is, they first decided what was in the way, then they decided what was in the way, and now they were alarmed. Everything is clear. Well, it flies and flies.

    A lot is written about all sorts of missiles, tanks, aircraft.

    But more important is that it is not written and will never be written.

    Someone doubt that hypersonic devices are tested not only in the United States ?.
    Or that there are high power EMI ammunition?

    And anti-satellite weapons - it may well have a place to be. We do not know what does not mean that this is not.

    A special relish is that the so-called "power" of the United States is largely based on the power of the satellite constellation. Guidance, positioning, target designation, tracking - everything from space is done. And at the same time, these sophisticated satellites are the most vulnerable part of the military infrastructure. "Unintentional" laughing the explosion of an allegedly spent satellite with good geometry can destroy the satellite ranks of adversaries.
