    Do we have any non-Izvestya sources about this?


    Very interesting to put mildly, but anything Izvestya touches smells like manure to me.

    DIMMI has a small article on the system, but I have not seen any indication it ever entered service...?

    Viktor point taken. Nice Long Interesting interview with Deputy Defense Minister Yuri Borisov

    http://echo.msk.ru/programs/voensovet/1104718-echo/


    A. QUESTION: I remind Yuri Borisov, Deputy Minister of Defense, and the last question in this part, you just have not responded to it. Here, repeat for Smoudena incident. So the possibility of the American system, it is clear that they are used in the military - is tracking, intelligence, personal intelligence. Do we have such a system, or the Americans here, it came to light that (inaudible), far ahead? This is the same intelligence, roughly speaking.

    Yuri Borisov: In order to use means of combat, of course you're right, it is necessary to have information support. Moreover, as regards the fight from a strategic weapon system, or strategic weapons system, it is usually a multi-tiered system of information, including a space echelon, ground echelon of intelligence and resources, and working at different distances, with different accuracy characteristics.

    A. QUESTION: You specifically said the word train? How the program echelon of American Tracking?

    Yuri Borisov: No, I have not specifically said. Just in our terminology, this is a slang, common, multi-tiered system. Americans today are already in use space-based systems that monitor virtually the ability to run from the territory of Russia or from other areas of the threats of various kinds of missiles, strategic or not strategic, and are able to pinpoint them on the torch. Our system is in this we had it in the mid 80's, we have it created. It's more of the satellites that are on the (inaudible) orbits, and look at the background of the land opportunity ... rather not watch an opportunity, and the fact of watching the start of the torch ballistic missiles, and give a signal that something of such and such a district has taken off. Something slipped, but still can not draw conclusions is something to arrive, and how much time will fly. But only for the simple reason that the strategic missile today tend to be moving along a ballistic trajectory, according to Kepler's laws. And in order to predict the fall of this point, you need some time. But such a system, I stress, the Americans have. They are with us. And now we're just at the stage of the modernization of the system and are in the process of creating a new generation of the system.

    A. QUESTION: This tracking system?

    Yuri Borisov: This tracking system, space tracking system.

    A. QUESTION: And that's how it is accurate? I mean, not only to record the start there and fix the conversations they have in the General Staff?

    Yuri Borisov: No, this system is designed for a different brand. This is not a system of signals intelligence, it is not a system of space-tier information system to detect the launch of ballistic and (inaudible) missiles.

    A. QUESTION: There is parity?

    Yuri Borisov: In this plan ... Parity is, I say, that's where. We are a little behind in the cosmic system, but we seriously now built up the pace to rebuild ground-tier warning system. You may have heard ... But did not hear, and know perfectly well that we have quite recently been put into operation a new plant of high operational readiness in Armavir, which we closed this region, it is a unique station.

    A. QUESTION: It replaced Gabalenskuyu.

    Yuri Borisov: Yes, it replaced Gabalenskuyu station. This is a unique station that has its characteristics superior to the previous ones. Range of its actions around 6,000 kilometers, it can detect objects.

    A. QUESTION: Where to? Return to the south. I just thought, 6000 to the south - this is where we? That we have India, Pakistan?

    Yuri Borisov: Mediterranean Sea.

    A. QUESTION: It's Mediterranean ...

    Yuri Borisov: Yes.

    A. QUESTION: And there's a side of Pakistan.

    Yuri Borisov: Yes. One rocket dangerous area, because the start and can be done from submarines. And almost like the station - they are placed on the perimeter of our borders, and will cover all missile-direction, which is the guarantee of early detection, and signal to the response. The space echelon adds quite simply the probability of making the right decision. Well, I would say it's the first bell. He does not know where all of this will fly, but it says something slipped. A land train, it just simply is accurately calculates according to the information received from these nodes, that the stations of high operational readiness, gaining information for ... Reliable information to respond to the measures already taken. But you know, it's too important decision, and the price of that decision - it is actually whether the world continue to exist at all, or not. So ...

    A. QUESTION: Generally, there is the human factor is taken into account, or is it automatic ... Decisions are made automatically? Here are some there came together the numbers on the machine?

    Yuri Borisov: Alex, a very good question.

    A. QUESTION: But it's prime, actually.

    Yuri Borisov: The main issue. So in practice, the system is automatic. Because there's no time for reflection. A washed-up on the stage, she say, automated. Because in the process of decision-making by far, the man has interfered.

    A. QUESTION: So, this obligation or the ability to persist?

    Yuri Borisov: Yes, it is saved. But the number of people in this situation is sharply reduced, this 2 person.

    A. QUESTION: And, well, that is, it is conditional nuclear suitcase.

    Yuri Borisov: Yes, this is conditional nuclear briefcase.

    From interview with Deputy Defense Minister Yuri Borisov we can conclude.

    1 > Russian EW Sats are still 80's based that are on orbit to detect BM launch , American can track all object on Russian terriotary in real time including non-strategic missile . New Russian System under works.

    2 > Confirms Armavir radar has a range of 6000 km Cool  and is a highly automated system needing just 2 men.

    The kind of capability that American have today the Russians would get similar capability by 2020 since this is part of SAP program as mentioned by Russian General.

    I think the Space based capability of American today is almost second to none , the Russians and Europe are like distant second most of American capability are so classified that nobody even knows what it can do , thats the fearsome fact.

    Look at NSA capability that got exposed by Snowden and compare American capability in space similar to NSA top secret establishment. Very much fearsome.

    Capability to do what? Track BM in real time? Well they are building global ABM arent they - so they need stuff like that.

    Russia can now detect and the rest will do EW radar system.

    On the other hand Russia is working on a satellites which will be able to track fighters and planes and cruise missiles (not to mention maritime surface units)

    which will work as part of ADF.

    Just this last month Russia launched 3 spy satellites

    - Persona
    - Resurs-P
    - Kondor-E

    Next month (7th) three new GLONASS-M will be put in space - EU is simply not in the same league with Russia. US is No.1.

    I read Kondor had 1 m resolution and what they launched was a Radar Satellite , I wonder what good is 1 m resolution is at the age when most commercial sats have this.

    Resours is not a military sat but civilian one.

    Persona is a important development and its mentioned to have sub meter resolution.

    Dual use - military also uses Resurs.

    Among users of the satellite, TsSKB Progress listed following institutions:

    Ministry of Natural Resources, MPR;
    Ministry of Emergency Situations, MChS;
    Ministry of Transportation, Mintrans;
    Ministry of Agriculture, Rosselkhoz;
    Ministry of Fishing, Rosrybolovstvo;

    Isnt Kondor the satellite that was suppose to guide Granit supersonic missile , atleast i remember reading it some time back.

    One thing i realised that Russian satellite have shapes that are not seen say in US or Western satellite as also say Indian satellite that are infulenced by western design.

    It shows Russian development are very independent and design are based on their experience and so goes for their rocket.

    Pretty much like animals in Australian continent have developed independently compared to other continents so their creatures are odd types atleast some of them Laughing

    Russia to upgrade radar in Kazakhstan involved in testing Moscow’s missile defense

    MOSCOW, August 26. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia is upgrading the experimental radar Neman-P, located in Kazakhstan at the Sary-Shagan test site, which is part of the Kapustin Yar proving ground. The work is to be completed by 2016, Defense Ministry’s strategic missile force spokesman, Major Dmitry Andreyev, has told ITAR-TASS.

    “The Neman radar was used to monitor the air space situation and confirm flight parameters of target missiles in testing the missile defencse system A-135,” Andreyev recalled. In 1981 through 1991 the radar was used on more than 300 occasions for launches of ballistic missiles during tests of warheads and missile defense penetration complexes.

    The spokesman said the upgrade program would extend the radar’s life cycle and enhance its reliability, information capabilities and range.

    Crimea’s missile warning system radar station to get an upgrade

    Post  Sujoy on Fri Oct 10, 2014 5:33 pm

    Crimea’s missile warning system radar station to get an upgrade

    Recall that since the Soviet era in Sevastopol is radar (radar) system of missile warning "Dnepr" and item spacecraft control. A near Evpatoria based range space communication center. Ukraine inherited a legacy of the Soviet Union, these objects are not exploited. Radar for a long time to lease Russian Defense Ministry. But when in Kiev for the use of the station began to demand exorbitant fees, lease in Moscow decided not to roll over. Especially because by the time the southern strategic direction, which covered the Ukrainian radar, stood on alert radar high prefabrication "Voronezh", built near Armavir.

    As for Evpatorian center, then he found a replacement in the territory of the Russian Federation. Now, after returning to the Crimea to Russia, both objects take on a second life. General Golovko said that from December 1 complex in Yalta get the status of the Main Center for testing and control of space vehicles and will be a part is located in the suburban Krasnoznamensk Main Test Space Center named after Titov. Commander SAI said that Evpatoria center "will take up the tasks of managing spacecraft Russian orbital group, as well as in the interests of the Russian space surveillance systems." But before this place will be properly retrofitted.

    Its unique radio astronomy telescope RT-70, which is a complex of parameters, the combination of huge size with all-weather and severity "of" and the ability to work in different ranges of radio waves, still has no equal in the world. However, in the post-rarity equipment hardly used. So now his condition is poor.

    - We have already begun to equip this new object command-measuring systems of space vehicles and complexes of space surveillance systems - said Golovko. - Complete program of refurbishment of the Centre with modern equipment is scheduled for 2016. During this time there will be commissioned in about 20 systems and complexes of new generation.

    A year later, with a small station "Dnepr" in Sevastopol should again connect to alert duty in the national system of missile warning. But before waiting for a major update of the radar. At the facility will assemble the new equipment, conduct upgrades computer complex, engineering, technical and technological systems. And on December 1, this year will be commissioned Sevastopol control point constellation.

    Advanced radar capable of monitoring missile launches in various parts of the world, in Russia every year it becomes more and more. Alternate sites for their construction are incorporated in the Orenburg region and the Arctic. There will soon be highly compatible radar "Voronezh". Already state tests of similar plants in Kaliningrad and Irkutsk regions. According to the head, until the end of this year, their calculations will start control radar missile-western and eastern areas. In the next three months on experimental combat duty has two radar "Voronezh" - in the Altai Territory (Barnaul) and Yenisei.

    To understand what an important mission to fulfill these objects, we present brief statistics. This year alone, with the help of the stations of the missile warning our military tracked and escorted more than two dozen launches. If the rocket went to Russia, this information would help command EKR time to repel an attack.

    Commander of the orbital forces confirmed sounded earlier information that the first launch of a heavy version of the missile, "Angara" is tentatively scheduled between 20 and 30 December (the so-called start-up window). About a month before that date she was transported to the launch pad, in the words of Golovko, for the "development work with the product." General stressed that all the stages of preparation "Sheds A-5" to start are under his personal control. To do this, at the Baikonur launched a special video control system. It allows the team right out of his office at the Headquarters of real-time tracking of the entire course of the test of a new missile.

    More Golovko said that Ashuluk range near Astrakhan now prepared to step up combat duty for the protection of the central zone defense next regiment of anti-aircraft missile systems S-400.

    At the turn of combat weapons upgrade Russia

    Deputy Minister of Defence plans to develop weapons, military and special equipment



    November 28, 2014 marks 85 years since the formation of the Department of the Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation - the leading body of military control of the Armed Forces of Russia, is responsible for addressing the formation of the basic directions of military-technical policy, the establishment, improvement and development of weapons systems. In 1929, the Red Army was established as chief arms, who was charged in charge of the development of new weapons, putting them on the production, control, order fulfillment industry and technical training industry to perform tasks in wartime.

    Activities of the chief weapons defined transition from the planning of the development of arms and military equipment for certain types to comprehensive long-term plans and weapons programs, including the development, delivery and support for the operation in the military weapons, military and special equipment (AMSE), capital construction of military facilities at the optimal alignment needs of the Armed Forces with the amount of funds allocated for this purpose. Many generations of specialists of the Department of the Defense Ministry weapons and his predecessors have made and continue to make a valuable contribution to the establishment and equipping of troops to domestic first-class weapons. Results achieved - this is a logical conclusion, based on the practical experience of the personnel and the traditions that have developed in the department.

    Current activities of the Department of weapons carried in a highly volatile political and military situation and the ongoing military threats to the national security of our country is practically around the perimeter of the state border of Russia. Unfortunately, to date, many remain unresolved regional conflicts, a tendency to force their resolution, including in the regions having a common border with the Russian Federation. In these circumstances, the purpose of defense and national security Russia purposefully and consistently pursuing a policy designed to deter and prevent armed conflicts, to improve its military organization, as well as forms and methods of using the Armed Forces.

    Substantially change the nature of modern warfare, which became high-tech, dynamic and transient, requiring a fundamentally new approaches to their management, and military-technical support. That is why one of the most important priorities of the Russian Federation is the completion of a modern army, weapons which should make the system complex and AMSE, providing not only adequate response to the whole range of existing threats to military security, but also the likely future threats.

    Warranty retaliation

    The solution of this priority is carried out in the framework of coherent and balanced military-technical policy, the foundations of which, for the period up to 2020 and Beyond, adopted by President of the Russian Federation 26 January 2011. The main mechanisms for the implementation of modern military-technical policy enshrined in the complex of the relevant documents, and its intent is to build on a minimally adequate nuclear deterrent and conventional forces, to carry out a qualitative re the Russian Armed Forces in accordance with the parameters of a new image.

    The key document in this area is the State Armaments Program for 2011-2020, approved by the President of the Russian Federation in December 2010. The main goal of the program is the development of a comprehensive system of arms of the Russian Federation on the basis of complete deliveries of modern domestic weapons.

    Based on the needs of a new image of the Armed Forces and the requirements of regulations implemented to maintain and coordinated development of potential nuclear deterrent forces, groups of troops (forces) general purpose forces and equipment for special tasks, and information management systems.

    These components weapons systems primarily provide prevention against the outbreak of the Russian Federation and its allies of nuclear aggression, large-scale or local wars with the use of conventional weapons, as well as the opening and early warning of threats to national security of Russia. The basic requirement for the development of their advocates need to build weapons systems of the Armed Forces, which unites into a single loop control subsystem arms troops (forces), regardless of their deployment in strategic sectors.

    In this case, acquisition of weapons and its major subsystems of the newest complexes (samples) AMSE and ensure their application is carried out by means of the criterion to maximize the effectiveness of combat operations troops (forces), regardless of the scale of armed conflict and the current military-strategic situation.

    An important factor in the occurrence of neutralizing nuclear wars and military conflicts with the use of conventional weapons (large-scale war, regional war) is still the potential of the strategic nuclear forces.

    Given the nature and content of the projected threats to the military security of the Russian Federation in the foreseeable future, the system focuses on strategic arms guaranteed solution to the problem of nuclear deterrence any likely aggressor in all conditions of the military-political situation, including in terms of nuclear effects on the enemy military facilities and public infrastructure .

    On this basis, the main directions of development of the system are:
    - Integrated development of the impactor and the information and control components;
    - Further development of systems and command and control;
    - Re-grouping of the strategic nuclear forces in the modern samples AMSE, the development of advanced models of intercontinental ballistic missiles and submarine launched ballistic missiles with new types of warheads have improved energomassovymi characteristics;
    - Maintenance of the quantitative composition of the strategic arms at the level determined by international agreements in this area.

    Implementation of these areas will help to solve the problem of guaranteed unacceptable damage to any enemy in response to the aggression they unleashed against the Russian Federation in any form responses, depending on the prevailing conditions of the military-political and operational-strategic situation.

    To counter an attack from outer space

    Another important tool in ensuring strategic stability system is armed troops aerospace defense intended for opening and reflection aerospace attacks on the country and grouping, as well as prompt notification of state and military control. Creating the aerospace defense of the country due to the development of aerospace and missile technology of advanced countries, the conversion of air and space into a single sphere of armed struggle.

    At the moment the necessary work to refine the parameters of the weapon system Troops ASD, and we have a full understanding of what means of aerospace attack will need to counteract the foreseeable future. On this basis, the new system will be balanced in relation to the other components of the weapon system, as well as adequate emerging threats and allow under any circumstances provide a solution to the entire range of tasks, from the prevention of terrorist acts using the means of aerospace attack before the implementation mechanism of the power of strategic deterrence .

    So the prospects for the development of weapons systems Troops ASD relate primarily to the following areas:
    - The deployment and improve the system of missile warning based on land, air, space and maritime information tools to provide global control of air and space;
    - The creation of multifunctional modern percussion missile defense systems of different bases, including through the use of kinetic, electromagnetic and laser impacts.

    The targets are to ensure the dynamic development of weapons systems troops SAI, its compliance perspective challenges and threats in the aerospace field.

    Development of strategic weapons systems and aerospace defense is inextricably linked to the development of weapons systems of general purpose forces as supporting their deployment, use and regroup.

    In this case, the general purpose forces, which include aviation, Army and the Navy, solve problems for the protection of the territorial integrity and national interests of the Russian Federation, including in the event of a local or regional conflicts.

    Create a single information space

    In the interest of development of weapons systems of general purpose forces implemented the following key activities:
    - The creation of a hypersonic weapon, advanced aircraft systems, including unmanned;
    - Implementation of programs for the construction and repair of ships to ensure the confrontation in the near maritime zone and combat stability of nuclear deterrence sea-based;
    - Development of new samples with elevated AMSE combat capabilities to defeat enemy targets in any conditions;
    - The creation of types of precision weapons, implementing the principle of "fire-struck";
    - Equipping the troops unmanned, robotic tools for different purposes;
    - The creation of future transportation systems based on unified platforms.

    In this newly developed and delivered to the troops AMSE samples should be combined into a single reconnaissance and information-fire system capable of rapidly detect, identify and destroy enemy targets.

    The implementation of this approach is provided by the union of separate electronic systems multiservice combat support, such as data collection, processing and transmission of information for the planning of operations and combat operations under a single control loop of the Armed Forces.

    In this case, the general direction of the development of electronic systems combat support is the creation of a common information space on the basis of distributed information networks and complex integration of electronic means of reconnaissance, communications, navigation, electronic warfare systems, automation control of troops and weapons in multifunctional systems.

    Integration of diverse combat electronic systems allow real-time to ensure timely and effective use of spatially separated with the possibility of lethal concentration point striking, as well as the choice of a rational structure of weapons for the task under conditions of high dynamism of modern warfare.

    The main directions of development of the system by means of electronic security include:
    - Increased use of advanced information, communication technologies and the creation of geographically distributed data banks;
    - The transition from a hierarchical command and control stem and arms to the distributed network-centric management;
    - A comprehensive capacity building to conduct continuous exploration on a time scale close to real;
    - Creation of EW equipment on new physical principles, using the "stable" means and methods of combat, the effectiveness of which is practically independent of the development of electronic means of the probable enemy.

    In general, a development of the weapons systems based on timely complete deliveries to the troops advanced weapons, based on the modular approach is not inferior to foreign analogues and performance with a significant level of unification.

    The development of weapons systems of the Armed Forces requires the consolidation of joint efforts of public authorities and organizations involved in the process of military development.

    Given the ongoing measures in this direction, there is confidence that the plans developed in the field of military construction in a timely manner will be implemented in full, which will provide a long-term military security of the Russian Federation.

    ***

    At this stage of military development department staff of the Defense Ministry weapons worthy to continue their tradition, are developing the projects the state armament program, the state defense order, confidently enforce a single military-technical policy in the field of development of weapons systems of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation and other military formations and bodies.

    Elements of new missile defense system tested in Russia

    Russian military to get equivalents of US missile defense systems soon — corporation

    ST. PETERSBURG, January 23. /TASS/. Russia is testing elements of a new missile defense system, Yan Novikov, CEO of Almaz-Antei Concern, said on Friday.
    “Currently, we are carrying out field tests of elements of a new missile defense system,” he said.
    Meanwhile, he noted that the missile defense system that was developed in the 1990s is still being used as having no analogues in the world by a number of parameters.
    In December 2014, Almaz-Antei’s designer general Pavel Sozinov said that Russian analogues of US’s THAAD and GMD missile defense systems would be developed in the next few years.

    Russia’s new military doctrine allows creation of joint missile defense systems

    Russia’s new military doctrine does not rule out creation of joint missile defense systems together with other countries on condition of Russia’s equal participation. The doctrine’s 2010 edition did not mention that possibility.
    The document published in late December sets forth Russia’s main tasks in deterring and preventing military conflicts. They include creation of mechanisms of mutually beneficial bilateral and multilateral cooperation in counteracting possible missile threats, including, if necessary, creation of joint missile defense systems if Russia has equal participation in these projects.
    In addition to that, the document goes on to say, the Military doctrine provides for preventing attempts by separate countries (or a group of countries) to gain military superiority by stationing strategic anti-missile defense systems and strategic non-nuclear systems of precision weapons as well as deploying weapons in outer space.

    How can Russia take down usa and others ICBMs if US can't ? I mean they don't have any reliable defence to take down russian nukes ?

    No, but retaliation with their nuclear arsenal is still a threat. Russian IADS is the best in the world but not for so many ICBM's and only a few systems are designed to even be capable to intercept ICBM's.

    For an example let us consider if Israel or US fire 2-3 nukes towards Moscow so can Russiaintercept them down in Israel/US airspace or in international airspace . Rolling Eyes

    But they would be in Terminal phase by then isn't it ? So S-500 and other can intercept in terminal phase ?

    Interview with the legendary Анатолий Иванович Савин , conceiver and creator of the first working ASAT program at world, of first world's space based global surveillance and tracking system (with a little hint to a very special quality of the revolutionary system in question , unmatched abroad still today) and of literally dozen and dozen other breakthrough discoveries and weapon system in several different fields since '40 years.

    A true living legend ; worth of attentive reading for any word.

    Interesting indeed I read it this morning but forgot to post.

    Most interesting part is where the Ocean Survellence Satellite was about to track NATO Submarine and Ship through out the world

    You know Mindstorm, this is what I fear. A huge deterioration in the quality of comments on RMF primarily because some self serving posters from India and Africa have completely hijacked this forum with their low level intellect and garbage posts.In fact just a couple of minutes ago I was advising a new comer to RMF to avoid such posters.

    This is nothing but a blatant publicity stunt that you have posted. Not that I blame you. You are only a victim of this environment, where mediocrity is thriving.

    Submerged vessels also generate a diverse range of indirect effects on the surrounding marine environment; these are categorised as physical, optical and thermal effects. While such effects are highly variable, being dependent on submarine type and operational parameters, they do NOT provide any potential means of detecting submerged vessels using space based sensors.

    No other country has perfected the art of submarine hunting like the US. For example, the Continuous Trail Unmanned Vessel (ACTUV) program of the US Navy is a state of the art type of unmanned surface vessel that could independently track adversaries’ ultra-quiet diesel-electric submarines or nuclear submarines over thousands of miles. Such technologies are un matched anywhere in the world.

    Every single Russian (or Chinese or Indian) submarine can be detected by the UK and US. This is why Russian submarines hide under ice sheets to avoid detection and fire their SLBMs from their.
