In the Irkutsk region completed the construction of a new Center for tracking space objects, reports Rossiyskaya Gazeta with reference to Spetsstroy Russia.


Construction of a new radar station completed in the Irkutsk region


“The center includes a new generation Voronezh-M radar capable of detecting ballistic and aerodynamic objects, including cruise missiles. It works in both meter and decimeter ranges, ”the publication says.

Thus, another “cosmic eye” has appeared in the Space Control System (SSS).

In total, the system includes about 10 objects, including in the near abroad. For example, the “unique optical-electronic complex“ Window ”, based in Tajikistan in the Pamir Mountains, is designed to automatically detect space objects at altitudes from 2000 to 40 000 kilometers, the newspaper notes.

It is reported that "SCR produces about 50 thousands of observations every day."

All information flows to Noginsk near Moscow, where the Center of the system is located, from here it is monitored "for each of 12 thousands of artificial earth satellites."

The development of SCP continues. According to RG, “by 2020, Russia plans to launch ten more complexes for the space monitoring system”.

        Yes, you never mind, but first of all. I got excited, in the second. I do not understand those naive people who look at China from the point of view of friendship. China has never been to anyone else. Friendship and cooperation are several different things. Enough made friends in Soviet times, and so what? Where are all these friends? Everyone threw as one.

              Well, somehow strange ... As a former early warning system operator, I will tell you a secret that there are 3 echelons of an early warning system, and they are all the main ones. For in the absence of at least one, the rest of the situation does not save. Voronezh, along with stations of previous generations, is the last warning line, the so-called over-the-horizon stations. Those. they catch what flies out from behind the horizon, and here the distance is no longer great.
              There are 2 more echelons - over-the-horizon stations and a satellite system. Their task is to record the moment of ICBM launch. which gives you extra time to think. even earlier, reconnaissance ships grazed near the American shores of the "Ural" type, but they are no longer there.
              The difference between Voronezh and the stations of the previous generation is the ability to detect aerodynamic targets, and not just ballistics. This, together with the characteristics of the S-500, indicates a gradual mixing of missile defense, anti-missile defense, early warning systems and air defense systems in Russia. What a big plus and main difference from the American missile defense system.

        Yeah. And if it is still completely accidental to assume that some Voronezh-M / VM radars under construction can become the basis of the RUSSIAN missile defense system .... And if we assume that almost the entire Russian Federation is already covered by them or during the construction process .... That can be completely by accident To assume that while the United States is building a mini pro in Romania and Poland, we have more than half built a pro over the entire territory of the country. And if we assume that Nudol and s500 can be used in a missile defense pro system ... AND IT IS COMPLETELY RANDOMLY A FEW MONTHS BACK ALMAZ-ANTEY LAUNCHED TWO FACTORS for the production of air defense systems and about 400 and s500, as well as missiles for them. repeat
        Well, this is of course all the stories and assumptions. It is absolutely impossible for Putin, who has sold himself to the West, to spend huge sums of money on the construction of a national defense organization. lol All this is cut and provocation. laughing

        Something you are wrong about.
        The stations do indeed have the name Voronezh.
        But "Voronezh" "Voronezh" strife ...
        Read on below (for more details, here http://politrussia.com/vooruzhennye-sily/kak-rossiya-laquo-nezametno-raquo-426/)


        :
        Why are two different types of missile launch early detection stations being built in Russia and why are they so oddly located at first glance? Why are two different stations “Voronezh-DM” and “Voronezh-M / VM” called the same, although they have little in common besides the name? Let's look for answers together.
        Indeed, what do the two stations have in common besides the name?
        If we look at the “companies” -developers of the Voronezh-M / VM and Voronezh-DM radar stations, then of course we will not be surprised. The first was developed by RTI named after Academician A. L. Mints, the developer of the unique “Daryal” meter complex, and the second is NIIDAR, the developer of decimeter radars for the Danube and Volga missile defense systems.
        The network has a lot of information about what is being developed by the Voronezh-SM radar. The station should operate in the centimeter range. What is this for? To very accurately direct the missiles into the target. It is possible that the possibilities of working on two bands (decimeter and centimeter) will be realized on the basis of the Voronezh-DM radar.
        By the way, the Americans did exactly the same (article from 2007):
        “The leadership of the US Department of Defense regards the Beamyus and Pave Pos radars, as well as the Speistrek and Spasur missile systems, as the most important means of monitoring enemy ballistic missile (BR) launches. The development of radars of these systems is aimed at improving radar methods and technologies: the creation of dual-band (3- and 10-cm). "
        The specialist in creating radars for missile defense systems of the centimeter range in the USSR was all the same RTI them. Academician A. L. Mints, who put the famous Don-1990N radar station on combat alert in the late 2s, which today is an unsurpassed locator that protects the peace of the inhabitants of the European part of Russia.
        Perhaps this is due to the fact that this design bureau is the co-developer of Voronezh-DM stations with NIIDAR. If this is so, and there are more than a lot of reasons to think so, it turns out that, without making too much noise, Russia today is finishing to deploy not only a circular missile launch early warning system, but also a very high-level national missile defense system. And for its completion, it remains only to re-equip / modernize the Daryal station in the city of Pechora (which has already been announced without going into details) to a decimeter-centimeter station.
        The new national missile defense system of Russia, being created on the basis of Soviet developments, will soon be built. Quiet and without any noise. The radar in the Crimea is likely to operate in the meter range, and perhaps this will be another Voronezh, better two-section.
        Instead of “Darial” in the city of Pechora, its decimeter-centimeter twin brother would logically look.
        The completion of the Voronezh-SM program will be the last stage in the deployment of tracking, tracking and guidance stations for the Russian missile defense system being created today.

        So - I repeat:
        Everything has its time and place, brother ...

        PS Someone here recently recalled about the mobile version A - 235 ...

    The news is good, but before it was near Irkutsk (oh, monumental! Like the Egyptian pyramid), it was built in the late eighties, but because of events well-known to everyone, it didn’t go on combat duty. However, its history is probably well known to everyone, but, let’s not talk about sad things. We will enjoy the new!

    On May 23, 2012, a new radar station of the Voronezh-M missile attack warning system took over on experimental combat duty in the Irkutsk region, RIA Novosti reports. So far one section of the station has been in operation, and after the launch of the second survey of the Voronezh-M in Usolye-Sibirskoye, Irkutsk Region, it will increase to 240 degrees.
    According to the Commander of the Aerospace Defense Forces of Russia, Lieutenant General Oleg Ostapenko, after Voronezh-M is fully operational, the need for a Dnepr-type early warning radar operating in the Irkutsk region will disappear and this station will be decommissioned ...


    Good luck in the development and early completion of the complex.

    This is certainly excellent, but abroad the development of low visibility technologies does not stand still -
    Researchers from the University of Iowa have developed a flexible coating that is superior in performance to today's radar absorbing coatings for technology, including aircraft. According to Aviation Week, the researchers called the new development “meta-skin” (meta-skin) by analogy with metamaterials, whose properties are determined by their structure.

    "Meta-coating" consists of several layers of silicone elastomer manufactured by Goflex. Each coating layer has 225 identical resonators made in the form of an open ring. The dimensions of the layer with so many resonators are not specified. The resonators themselves are cavities in an elastomer filled with galinstan.

    The outer radius of the resonators is 2,5 millimeters, and the thickness of the open ring is 0,5 millimeters. The distance between the ends of the open ring is one millimeter. Researchers filled each cavity of the resonator with galinstan manually. The total thickness of the coating is 1,45 mm. All layers sintered with each other at a temperature of 150 degrees Celsius.

    During laboratory testing, the coating absorbed up to 75 percent of radar radiation in the frequency range from eight to ten gigahertz. At the same time, the researchers noted that stretching the "meta-coating" in one direction or another allows changing the absorbed radiation range. By changing the tension force, the developers managed to change the absorbed range from 9,15 to 12,38 gigahertz.

    In mid-November last year, researchers from Huazhong University of China announced the development of a new radar absorbing coating that could make planes or ships inconspicuous for radars operating in the UHF wavelength range (0,3-3 gigahertz). The coating was significantly thinner than conventional radar absorbing materials optimized for UHF.

    It is a flexible circuit board with semiconductor diodes - varactors soldered on it. Such diodes on the board alternate with capacitors. This layer, 0,8 millimeters thick, is located under the layer of copper resistors and capacitors. The thickness of this layer is only 0,04 millimeters.

    Both layers are located on a metal honeycomb substrate with a thickness of seven millimeters, and the latter, in turn, is attached to a metal foil. The total coating thickness is 7,8 millimeters. The coating for operation requires an electric current of ten to 48 volts. By changing the voltage, you can change the frequency of the absorbed radiation.

      This is certainly excellent, but abroad the development of low-visibility technologies does not stand still
      As practice shows, all stealth technologies (including coatings) are classified to such an extent that even mentioning their existence is a violation of state secrets. And here is a statement in the press, with a full description of the internal structure and principle of operation. I am tormented by vague doubts that this is either outright disinformation, or stuffing in order to send competitors down the wrong path. Maybe this coating is capable of deceiving the road radar, but the military means of detection are much more serious (the same, by the way, secret).

    You are really right, speaking about the three-echelon early warning system. But alas, there are no over-the-horizon ones in the early warning system. "Duga" was in the USSR, but with the collapse of the USSR and the Chernobyl accident, only one "Duga" remained on the territory of Russia in Primorye. And even then it has long been inoperative.
