Russia strikes at the American monopoly in providing information about satellites in near-earth orbit

57
The head of the Russian delegation Viktor Shilin, participating in the 59 session of the United Nations Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space for Peaceful Purposes, announced the plans of the Russian Federation to publish information on the satellite constellation in open access mode. This is actually about creating an alternative to the American catalog NORAD (North American Aerospace Defense Command), which today is a monopolist in providing information about space objects. The statement about such plans of Russia is published by the newspaper. "News".


Russia strikes at the American monopoly in providing information about satellites in near-earth orbit


The plans of Russia - to provide complete data not only on civilian satellites, but also on objects that relate to the so-called space debris. The Russian delegation notes that such a publication will significantly increase the level of safety of space flights and create special conditions for the transparent coverage of the work of satellites from different countries in near-earth orbit. The Russian initiative was supported by China.
Strongly oppose the United States.

It must be assumed that the American "partners" fear that in the "space debris" section Russia may publish data on US spy satellites, which abound in orbit. Moreover, military satellites of other NATO states are in outer space. Therefore, the United States is eager to remain a monopolist in terms of providing information about the active satellite constellation.

From the very peculiar "soothing" American "partners" material of the newspaper:
Americans can not worry about declassifying the orbital data of their military spacecraft - this will happen anyway.

          Indeed, all who need it, and so everyone knows. Now the only open source is the NORAD directory, now there will be another open source. And the very presence and orbital location of spy satellites is not a secret for the main space powers. Based on this information, Roscosmos is unlikely to make even money. Just one more type of fascinating activity will be discovered - to compare among themselves the data of Roscosmos and NORAD about satellites and draw thoughtful conclusions based on the analysis of this comparison! bully hi

        We have 3D mockups, and they are already approaching a 100-tonnochka, about 10 years old before the regular launch. It's time for the moon guys, is there a political will? Or, again, will we scoop up the gusts named after Korolev?

      -------------------------------------------------- -----------
      as I remember, in the early 80s, data were published that about 5 thousand different objects, from satellites to lost wrenches, were worn in near-Earth space. and they were all tracked by the Soviet still relevant services. THOSE. each wrench had its own index. number, tracked trajectory, etc. Now it’s probably an order of magnitude more, but, I think, everything is marked, everything is marked.

            And what prevents to climb their resource and take open information? Or is there a paid registration indicating to whom and why this or that information is required? This is another matter. That a monopolist can, for its internal reasons, put not all into open access or indicate inaccurate information about certain objects.

          Alexander! hi My regards.
          Based on the concern shown by our "American partners", I dare to suggest that their list of space objects has been slightly corrected. And therefore, for those who want to hide something from them, our information about the space group will be of the greatest value. (You can plan and carry out your ground actions and camouflage activities, taking into account the time of flights of spy satellites). Well, for those who have the ability to destroy orbital objects, this information will be like a Bradis table for schoolchildren. (I mean our new very cleverly squinting friends). I have no doubt that they have their own data, but an additional source of information will never be superfluous.

          The blow is that now, for example, the Syrians, who do not have their own means of space control, can take advantage of Russian information about the US satellite. And knowing the time of their flight over Syria, take measures to disguise equipment to protect against photo reconnaissance, turn off radars and communications to protect against radio intelligence satellites. And this will allow them, if necessary, to better confront the Americans. True, the basmachi of all countries of the world can do the same. But we do this in response to the actions of the Americans, who have long been openly publishing data on our satellites, i.e. Basmachi in the Caucasus can also get into their catalog and take camouflage measures during the passage of our satellites over them.

      There's a meaning. This will really improve flight safety. In addition to the Russian Federation and the USA, there are other countries engaged in space flights, for them it will be useful.
      Most of the NORAD catalog is publicly available, and there are many services on the Web that allow you to track the trajectory of any satellite you are interested in online - as a rule, their data is taken from NORAD. However, at the same time, part of the data on NORAD spacecraft is not laid out in open access, but it coarsens individual data. Along with the US military satellites, NORAD closes information on the defense satellites of the allies - France, Germany, Israel and Japan. But Russian military satellites are presented in the catalog: in particular, according to NORAD open data, a lot of space-related enthusiasts last year tracked the geostationary orbit of the latest Russian military communications satellite, which showed extraordinary mobility.

      I also somehow do not understand what the point is. Are mattresses afraid that Russia will declassify data on their satellites? I remember that my father told me that back in the 80s, when he stood up on duty on the regiment, the special police officer necessarily issued a printout of titles about fifty. Spy satellites fly over the territory of the unit during the day. That is, at this time, it is necessary to limit the movement of personnel and military equipment on the territory of the unit, but usually the list was immediately sent to the trash. And then everyone knew, and now they also know everything, and everyone knows that everyone knows. I don’t understand what the problem is.

    There is absolutely no need to be afraid (I’m trying to calm them down), you know what we know, let everyone know that we know that you know. Anyway, if someone will take your satellites from orbits, so will we (for now).

    The catalog has all the satellites, both civilian and military. The only difference is that you can find a lot of information about civilians, while the same American military (secret, as they say here) satellites can be designated USA or NROL. Parameters of the orbit will be anyway, weight and dimensions too. As the purpose and status (operational or failed, or mothballed) of a satellite

    They can, Nikolai, they can. But I don’t agree with the fact that they do not pay any attention to them. All potentially dangerous objects in terms of defense are monitored.

    I don’t know, I’m not an expert in these matters, but this is "zhuu - zhu" on the part of the Sshashovites for a reason. Maybe they are hiding something there? Not for third parties ....

    Americans can not worry about declassifying the orbital data of their military spacecraft - this will happen anyway.
    laughing lol laughing That's right, it's too late to drink Borjomi when the liver has fallen off! What did they want? I'm just touching the reaction of the Americans! laughing That's right, and you need them on all "fronts", like cats who shit in their own excrement, and with their nose!

    I can imagine if the Americans go "into denial" and recognize their spy companions as rubbish. And then ours will announce a "subbotnik" for cleaning and disposal of orbital debris. Yes, it's just some kind of holiday. Here the faces will have.

    And it is advisable to take money for this, as for a service. You can rubles.

    Indeed, all who need it, and so everyone knows. Now the only open source is the NORAD directory, now there will be another open source. And the very presence and orbital location of spy satellites is not a secret for the main space powers. Based on this information, Roscosmos is unlikely to make even money. Just one more type of fascinating activity will be discovered - to compare among themselves the data of Roscosmos and NORAD about satellites and draw thoughtful conclusions based on the analysis of this comparison!

    The NORAD catalog is actually not the only one.

    In addition to the catalog NORAD, it is also sometimes called satellite catalog Satellite Catalog Number (SCN) or USSPACECOM There are also a number of other directories that are in the public domain. Just the NORAD catalog is the most informative.
    Open part The catalog contains data on almost 12800 objects in the Earth's orbit, the sizes of which exceed 10 cm (for 2009).

    The catalog contains the parameters of the orbits of objects in the form two-line elements (TLE). Yes, it is not always that the parameters in the form of two-line elements (TLE) contain data on the orbital parameters of secret US military satellites.

    But besides this catalog there is also a catalog NSSDC ID - catalog US National Space Science Data Analysis Center (NSSDC). This structure operates under the auspices of NASA.
    It contains the catalog number of each flying space object in orbit and registered in COSPAR. There are also startup tables that contain information from both the NORAD directory and the NSSDC ID directory. You can use Russian-language resources (there would be a desire). but we do not have an OFFICIAL catalog yet.
    As an example, you can see how, under what numbers is the US intelligence satellite KN-11-16.
    = In the catalog NORAD he has a number 39232
    = In the catalog NSSDC ID he has a number 2013-043A
    = Has designation of satellites launched in the interests of National Intelligence Agency - number US-245
    = Has designation of satellites launched in the interests of US National Aerospace Intelligence Agency - number NROL-65

    And what prevents to climb their resource and take open information?

    As always laziness

    Apparently not everything is indicated in the American catalog, but now it will be indicated

    "Blessed is he who believes". Do you seriously think that everything will be indicated there, incl. and detailed parameters of our reconnaissance satellites? Not sure. Everyone tries to write about their own to a minimum. At one time in an English magazine Space Flight regularly published data from the NORAD and NSSDC ID directories (I don’t know how it is now and if there is any journal at all). About the American only names and some weight and size characteristics, according to the Soviet intelligence satellites - the maximum possible amount

    Do not look for a black cat in a dark room, especially if she is not there. None of the countries will spread absolutely everything. Even if there are some secret satellites, there will still be a minimum so that there are no emergency situations. And here everything is simple. For half a century, Americans have been monopolists in this type of information. We, having the same catalog, hid it behind the vultures of secrecy. And now we can just press them in this segment of information. Of course they got worried, because it is not clear what to expect from Russia, what kind of catalog it will be, and how informative it will be in comparison with American ones.
