Soyuz-2.1B launched two military satellites into orbit (video launch)

54
The Russian Defense Ministry published a video recording the launch of the Soyuz-2.1B light-class launch vehicle with two satellites on board, reports RIA News message of the Ministry of Defense.




“The satellites were launched into the target orbit at the estimated time. Communication with the Cosmos-2511 and Cosmos-2512 devices has been established, their onboard systems are functioning normally, ”the release says.

This is the second launch of a new carrier, which is being tested at the Plesetsk cosmodrome. The first launch took place at the end of 2013.

As previously noted in Roscosmos, “the creation of a Soyuz-2.1B light class carrier rocket is due to an increase in the global market demand for small spacecraft launches”. The new carrier will replace, including, the Rokot conversion rockets, the launches of which will be completed in the coming years.

        A message has just arrived that one of the satellites has not separated from the upper stage and the question is about removing it from orbit along with the satellite that has not separated and flooding it in the ocean.

          The Soyuz-2.1V rocket with two satellites launched on Saturday from the Plesetsk cosmodrome. As reported on Saturday by the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, the satellites launched into orbit at the estimated time were in touch and functioning normally, they were taken into control. On Sunday, a source in the space industry told RIA Novosti that there were problems with one of the two devices. According to preliminary data, he did not separate from the upper stage.

          The source also said that it is not yet clear which of the two satellites launched into the target orbit did not separate from the new Volga upper stage.

          “Based on data from open sources, it follows that two devices were launched: let's call one of them, for information security reasons,“ K ”, the other -“ C ”. According to preliminary data, one of them has not separated from the Volga upper stage of the Samara RCC Progress production unit. Since the “K” satellite acted as the main payload, it can be assumed that it was the first and not separated spacecraft to be “C”, ”the agency’s interlocutor said.

      these satellites will help our group in Syria

      Cosmos-2511 will certainly help with weather reports, as well as probably about NATO submarines.
      Cosmos-2511 (also known as Canopus-CT) is a meteorological satellite designed and manufactured by NPO VNIIEM. Its main task is to assist in ocean exploration and weather forecasting. It transmits satellite images (images of the Earth's surface and atmosphere), is equipped with high-resolution sounding equipment. This makes it possible to obtain images with a resolution of 2,1 meters (in a strip of 20 kilometers) using an on-board panchromatic camera, or with a resolution of 10,5 m (working passage 41 kilometers) when multispectral cameras are used. It is also equipped with a BIK-GYA-1 - a radiometer for measuring temperature, wind speed and atmospheric water content. Canopus-ST weighs 473 kg, the payload mass is 108 kg. Power consumption 300 watts. The satellite is equipped with 24 GB of internal memory and a transponder operating at a frequency of 8048 - 8,381.5 MHz. A downlink through two channels with a speed frequency of 122.88 - 61,4 megabits per second. Satellite equipment is powered by an onboard battery and deployable solar panels and has a lifespan of at least five years. Canopus-ST is the first of six satellites, the second will be launched in 2016. Canopus-ST is apparently a dual-use satellite for both civilian (weather observation) and military (detailed images and submarine detection using a radiometer on board) purposes.
      The second satellite, Cosmos-2512, is designed to calibrate air defense and missile defense radar systems.

      One of the Russian military satellites launched on December 5 did not separate from the Volga upper stage. RIA Novosti was told about this by a source in the space industry.

      “The problem is with one of the two military spacecraft. Currently, the issue of bringing from orbit and subsequent flooding of the ligament from the Volga upper stage and satellite in the interests of the Russian Defense Ministry is being discussed, ”the agency’s interlocutor said.

      The agency has not yet received comments from the Ministry of Defense.

    Syria can now sleep peacefully. Urgent decision to join Syria to the CSTO

    Having conducted telephone talks today with the leaders of the CSTO (Collective Security Treaty Organization) member countries - Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan, Putin received full approval for the absentee inclusion of Syria into the CSTO. This is a very serious step that hurts painfully, both on the pride of the United States and President B. Obama - reports the Syrian Arab news agency - SANA

    Now, if necessary, Syrian troops will be able to defend not only Russia, but also countries close to Syrians by the spirits and letter of the law, as members of the CSTO. However, the opposite, of course, also takes place if necessary to protect the interests of Syria. Tonight will already be ready for the transfer to Syria, if its leadership asks, the contingent of special forces of Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and of course Russia, with its military equipment, aviation field hospitals.

    Conflicting feelings arose about the news (if this is not a stuffing) about the absentee adoption of Syria in the CSTO. At first, it seemed like joy overwhelmed, like now we will tumble down to the Turks in full, but then it came to the understanding that, like us (Russia), such twists would not come out sideways: after all, the main burden of responsibility and military assistance will fall on us, and not on Tajikistan, for example. Indeed, one would not get a second Afghan. Vague doubts torment me, however, that we will not step on the rake a second time (with a ground operation). what

    "This is the second launch of a new medium, ..."
    New? Relatively new - The launch vehicle was developed on the basis of the Soyuz-2 launch vehicle of stage 1B, with the removal of the side blocks, the installation of the NK-33A engine and the RD0110R steering engine (developed by KBHA) on the central unit. The block of the second stage is borrowed with revision from the block 3 of the stage of the Soyuz-2 launch vehicle of stage 1B. To ensure the stability and controllability and operation of the Soyuz-2-1V LV control systems, the Soyuz-2 LV control system of stage 1B is used with the completion of software and mathematical support and a change in the instrumentation. The development of light class LVs is due to the currently observed tendency to increase the launch requirements of small spacecraft.
    The creation of the Soyuz-2 LV stage 1B using the blocks of the Soyuz-2 LV stage 1B, the existing technical and launch complexes, can dramatically reduce the costs of development, operation and launch. Rational decision !

      This rocket has only one drawback is the tulip. Installing a rocket on its tail allows you to immediately solve problems with Soyuz-3.3 and Soyuz-3,5 with a carrying capacity of 12/18 tons. It’s funny to me when I read that a new orbital ship with an equipped weight of 14/18 tons is going to launch a 36-ton Hangar-5V. Our PR designers are constantly deceiving the country's leadership and people. It is not possible to launch a manned ship on RD-191 engines, just as they could not use Zenith with RD-170 to launch manned ships: unrecoverable high-amplitude vibrations from engines. And the NK-33 was specially created for manned launches. So today is a holiday for those who understand.

    Instead of rejoicing at the launch of two satellites, one should rejoice at the successful test of the (second) new launch vehicle. And this is the revival of the legendary NK-33 and the creation in the near future of Soyuz-3.3 and Soyuz-3,5 with a carrying capacity of 12/18 tons in a circular orbit. Why no one notices this small nuance, but this is a breakthrough in our bureaucratic rocket science, a breakthrough equal to the creation of the Seven.

    The restoration of production is good, but one must also understand that this has already been done long ago in the USSR and is proceeding extremely slowly. This is hardly a breakthrough. A breakthrough will be when they fly to Mars with a vigorous engine, this is a breakthrough, but nobody has been waiting for such ambitious projects from Roskosmos for a long time.

    It is curious, but the fact is the number of accidents when launching space objects, in%, is less in Russia than in the USA

    “The problem is with one of the two military spacecraft. According to preliminary data, he did not separate from the new Volga overclocking unit. Currently, the issue of bringing from orbit and subsequent flooding of the ligament from the Volga upper stage and satellite is being discussed, in the interests of the Russian Defense Ministry", - said the interlocutor of the agency.
    Recall, the Soyuz-2.1V rocket with two satellites for the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, the characteristics and purpose of which was not disclosed by the department, was launched the day before from the Russian Plesetsk cosmodrome in the Arkhangelsk region. Preparation and launch were regular.

    Well damn it, well what is it, just rejoice for a successful launch and you again have problems. Once again, they were underworked and the amount of losses is quite rather big, ordinary citizens are forcing us to tighten our belts all the time, and then millions flew away to the vacum. Bad what else to say

    But one satellite did not separate from the rocket, and in all - half measures.
