It is noted that the space station "is created from 2010 year as part of the ground-based automated control system of spacecraft for scientific and socio-economic purposes and measurements to control spacecraft in low geocentric, solar-synchronous, highly elliptical and geostationary orbits." Interdepartmental tests of the point are scheduled for the 2 quarter of the current year.
“The Baltic command-measuring center, created by the Russian Space Systems JSC (RCS, part of the Ordinary Space Control Complex), has successfully completed complex tests. The new BCIT will significantly expand the capabilities of the entire Russian ground-based automated spacecraft control complex for scientific and socio-economic purposes and measurements, increasing the integrated radio visibility range by 7 degrees, ”says the release.
“The BKIP is planned to be activated during space launches and transport cargo ships to the ISS, scheduled for the first quarter of 2016,” the press service noted.
“Within the framework of complex testing of the Baltic Instrumentation, we successfully conducted control sessions of the Luch-5B satellite repeater during the launch of the Progress MS-01 cargo spacecraft from the BAIKONUR space center to the Russian segment of the ISS at the end of the 2015 year. Today, spacecraft control sessions are regularly held with technical means of the spacecraft propulsion system, and telemetry is being received from the upper stages, ”the press service quoted the head of the Center for Coordination and Development of the Ground Automated Spacecraft Management Complex.
“The Baltic command-measuring station consists of two sets of technical means, Fakel and Neman, located in Kaliningrad and the Kaliningrad region, respectively. The use of space-borne test space will allow to replace the research vessel "Cosmonaut Viktor Patsayev" when receiving telemetry information from the Russian segment of the ISS, "explained in a statement.
Help RIA "News": “Russian Space Systems” JSC specializes in the development, manufacture and operation of space information systems. The main activities are the creation, development and targeted use of the global navigation satellite system GLONASS; space systems of search and rescue, hydrometeorological support, radio engineering support of scientific research of outer space; ground stations for receiving and processing remote sensing information ".
