Yalta, October 3. / TASS /. First satellites from the future orbital constellation of space-tier system of missile warning will be launched next year, told Trend. TASS CEO "Radio Engineering Institute. Mints" (RTI) and general designer Sergei Loot system.
He recalled that the now developed a single space system, which will be the space echelon of the missile attack warning.
"First launches will be in the next year", - assured the fighting. He, however, did not specify how many satellites will in future grouping.
According to the fights, the results obtained by the developers of a single space system in the corporation "Comet", "give confidence that the first test, and the first launches will be successful." "Ultimately, we build up to the desired composition of the group," - he added.
CEO of RTI noted that the new satellites will have a number of new features, they will integrate new solutions.
While Western sanctions, according to the head of the company, should not seriously affect the timing of, or the quality of performance of the system. "We have long been engaged in the development of electronic-component base, and I expect that we will have a number of solutions to replace their imported" - said the fighting.'
Earlier it was reported that in April, stopped working last geostationary satellite system "Eye-1", created in the 1990s to detect launches of intercontinental ballistic missiles. Then, the military said that of the six devices, operating on highly elliptical orbit, there were only two, because of what they can accomplish their tasks only three hours a day. Nevertheless, in the space industry have stated that the loss of the satellite will not affect the effectiveness of the system of missile warning, which is based mainly on the ground radar stations. At the same time experts have stated that the first satellite of this system will be launched into orbit by the end of the year.
Engineering design of the system of aerospace exploration completed this year, said fights.
"We will finish this year, technical design, then will be the stage of development of the design documentation," - said the agency interlocutor.
As explained TASS source in the defense industry, in Russia, a system of aerospace defense, one component of which will be referred to aerospace exploration. "This component must provide information on detected targets for weapons. He must track promising means of destruction, including clean space" - said the source.
Station "Voronezh" will be launched by 2018
New radar station "Voronezh-DM" and "Voronezh-M" ground echelon of the Russian system of missile warning (EWS) will be commissioned in time, certain fights.
He recalled that this year must earn passing state tests now station in Irkutsk and Kaliningrad regions.
"Today we are actively preparing for the statement on the pilot alert two more stations - Barnaul and Orsk" - added Loot.
Earlier it was reported that by the end of the year can step up experimental combat duty station "Voronezh-DM" in the Altai and Krasnoyarsk territories.
"We expect that we will have time to do so, as promised supreme commander. We promised two years ahead of time to do everything, not 2020, and 2018. As we walk in the schedule, and I am absolutely convinced that we have this chart will survive, "- said the agency interlocutor.
Complexes S- and L-band
RTI is developing a mobile radar systems operating in S- and L-bands (frequency ranges 1-2 and 2-4 GHz). The use of these bands will allow stations to operate with greater precision, also reported fighting.
"We are currently developing a new generation of stations that will be mobile and will be based on the sea or land mobile systems (including rail or road)", - said the fighting.
It is said that the new station would operate "is not in meters not decimetres, they will be the S-band, L-band", wherein the wavelength ranges from 7.5 to 15 and from 15 to 30 cm, respectively.
According to him, RTI must complete the development in 2015, and already in 2016 to start the construction and testing of a new generation stations.
"This is different from anything we've done before, - the source said. - Today, this range is considered to be very promising, here we go almost at the same pace with the Americans, who are also very active in developing such systems."
