    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.

    Russian Aerospace Defense Forces Again Dismiss Satellite Explosion Rumors

    MOSCOW, September 12 (RIA Novosti) – The Russian Aerospace Defense Forces again dismissed US media rumors of a Russian military satellite allegedly exploding above the United States.

    "These statements are yet another attempt to find out the location of the space object after the United States has lost track of it," Aerospace Defense Forces spokesman Col. Alexei Zolotukhin said.

    He reiterated that all Russian spacecraft function in normal regime and ground control services have steady control over them. No malfunctions have been reported in the past days, according to the spokesman.

    No malfunctions have been reported in the past days, the spokesman said.

    A spokesman for the US Strategic Command told RIA Novosti earlier in the day that the Russian reconnaissance satellite re-entered the atmosphere and crashed last week.

    On September 3, the American Meteor Society revealed more than 30 reports from alleged eyewitnesses who said they had seen a big fireball streaking across the sky. Website spaceflight101.com, dedicated to covering spaceflight events, assumed the fireball could have been Kosmos-2495 falling apart in the air.

    Kosmos-2495, a member of the Yantar Russian satellite series, was launched on May 6, 2014, designed to operate on a low Earth orbit.

    Russian Aerospace Defense Forces hold anti-nuclear military exercise

    MOSCOW, September 19. /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian Aerospace Defense Forces (ADF) held large-scale military drills with the aim of exercising measures under conditions of the ‘escalated military and political situation’, including a possible enemy’s nuclear attack, a spokesman for the ADF said on Friday.

    Colonel Alexey Zolotukhin said some 1,500 military servicemen took part in the military exercise. The Main Missile Warning Center, the Main Space Intelligence Center and the Titov Main Test and Space Systems Control Center were put on alert for the drills, he said.

    “The on-ground services of the Space Command held daily about 1,500 management sessions of spacecraft from the Russian orbital grouping and some 80,000 calculations on objects in space,” Zolotukhin said.

    Particular attention was paid to increasing the forces' survivability, reconstitution of combat systems and complexes, provision of incessant work of missile warning systems under conditions of jamming and enemy attacks.

    The main task of the air and missile defense command of the ADF is to protect the city of Moscow and the Central Industrial District, ensure the defense of top state and military control facilities, industrial and energy sites, groupings of the Armed Forces and transport communications against aerospace strikes, the Russian Defense Ministry said.

    The air and missile defense command of the ADF has an area of responsibility covering about 4,500 km, more than 25 regions and three republics in Russia.

    The air and missile defense command of the Aerospace Defense Force operates S-400 Triumf air defense missile systems, S-300 Favorit air defense systems, Pantsir-S1 air defense missile and gun systems and radar stations capable of detecting air targets at a distance of up to 600 km and at an altitude of up to 100 km.

    The air and missile defense command of the Aerospace Defense Force protects over 260 defense facilities within the area of its responsibility. The Aerospace Defense Force daily tracks up to 800 aircraft, of which 90 planes are covered by continuous daily radar control with data reported to the command post.

    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.

    Russia Has More Ballistic Missile Interceptors Than US: Arms Control

    WASHINGTON, November 19 (Sputnik) — Russia has 24 ballistic missile interceptors more than the United States, a senior US arms control official claimed.

    "We [the United States] are not concerned about the impact to strategic stability of Russia's deployment of 68 interceptors at the Moscow Anti-Ballistic Missile (ABM) system," Under Secretary for Arms Control and International Security Rose Gottemoeller said on Tuesday during her speech in Romania.

    "Sixty eight deployed interceptors is 24 more than the United States even has plans to deploy," Gottemoeller added.

    The senior arms control official said the United States currently has 30 interceptors, deployed in Alaska and plans to deploy an additional 14.

    Gottemoeller was discussing anti-ballistic missile systems and NATO's missile shield, making the point "based on logic, physics and math" that Russian concerns regarding the missile defense system are unfounded.

    In addition to the interceptors, mentioned by Gottemoeller, the United States and NATO allies have a number of other land and sea-based ballistic missile defense systems, with plans to deploy more.

    Under NATO's planned missile defense system, radars and interceptors will be placed in phases in several NATO countries, including Romania, Turkey, Spain and Poland. The defense shield is also bolstered by the sea-based systems such as the Aegis.

    Russia argues the missile defense shield could undermine the strategic nuclear balance between the United States and Russia.

    United States in ‘Complete Compliance’ With INF Treaty

    The United States strictly abides by the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty, Under Secretary for Arms Control and International Security Rose Gottemoeller said.

    "We [the United States] are in complete compliance with the INF Treaty," Gottemoeller stated.

    "We can describe, in detail, why each of our systems complies with the [INF] Treaty," she added.

    Over the past few months, Moscow and Washington have been accusing each other of breaching the 1987 INF Treaty, which provides for elimination of nuclear and conventional ground-launched ballistic and cruise missiles with intermediate ranges defined as between 300-3,400 miles.

    In July, Washington accused Russia of violating the INF agreement by testing a prohibited ground-launched cruise missile.

    In September, Russia and the United States held consultations on the subject in Moscow. According to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, Washington failed to provide satisfactory answers to the questions addressed by the Russian side.

    Russia will create analogues of American missile defense systems

    http://www.rg.ru/2014/12/08/rakety-site.html

    United States engaged in the development of fundamentally new means of aerospace attack, can dramatically change the course and outcome of combat operations during the air-space operations. This was stated by general designer Concern PVO "Almaz-Antey" Paul Sozinov.

    - A whole range of activities carried out in the United States, allowing them to turn on the 2020 switch to a fundamentally new class of weapons in terms of warheads and delivery of precision weapons to target, primarily mezhsrednyh aircraft, ballistic missile development in terms of use in a combat maneuvering load elements and a number of other areas that are characterized by the development of non-traditional delivery methods to defeat the object of ammunition as in nuclear and in the standard version - said Sozinov and as an example cited the implemented projects in the United States of hypersonic vehicles mezhsrednyh program "Falcon", and X -37.

    Orbital combat vehicles, which, in particular, are on the program of the X-37, successfully carried out a series of flight experiments. "They make it possible, in principle, already show up to three warheads and deliver them to the target after they walked along the orbital parameters system of missile warning and other means of control," - said the general designer.

    The X-37 program is developing in the direction of increasing range to deliver nuclear warheads and a significant expansion of its capabilities. The key here, according Sozinova are maneuvering capabilities to change the orbital parameters of the flight and increase the payload.

    To counter such threats, be sure to general designer, you need to change the requirements for Russian radar systems of missile warning and space surveillance systems and weapons.

    Space echelon updated Early-warning radar, according Sozinova earned in a new capacity until 2020, and perhaps earlier. Technical solutions for this tested. In addition, there is the creation of radar field over the territory of Russia in the medium and high altitudes, which greatly increased the ability to detect dynamic purposes. With regard to the detection of the enemy at low and extremely low altitudes, then help in solving this problem is the creation of local groups.

    Speaking about the development of new technologies for cutting-edge systems and systems of aerospace defense, Sozinov listed the development of active phased array antennas. Another Russian industry has made significant progress in creating fuel for interceptor missiles, thermal barrier coatings that can withstand heat up to 3.5 thousand degrees Celsius. Work on the fairing of the new generation of homing capable of withstanding temperatures of several thousand degrees. In the interest of national defense are developed and multispectral homing missile.

    There is another important news from the generals defense. According Sozinova, Russia creates its own equivalent of the American missile defense system THAAD and GMD. In the short term, they must be received into the armed forces. This, according to the general director, would "solve the problem of intercepting ballistic missiles, medium-range and on a limited scale - warhead intercontinental ballistic missiles." Sozinov reported and the development of other complex analogue of the American missile defense - CMD with rocket GBI.

    - A kind of analogue of the system, but in the mobile version, is also created in the Russian Federation. He has several other features - at the request of the Ministry of Defense, we must provide substantially more efficient interception than do Americans. Prototypes of these complexes we are actively engaged and assume that in the near future they will stand the Russian Army, "- said Sozinov.

    He gave an assessment of the arsenal of aerospace attack the United States. The main threat in it, according to the director general, is the massive use of cruise missiles. Such conclusions experts made by analyzing armed conflicts of recent times, particularly in Iraq and Libya.

    - That rearmament program, first of all sea-based means that the United States spend, allowing them to go in the period 2015-2016 gg. on the total amount of the possible delivery to the important objects of the Russian Federation about 6.5-7 thousand cruise missiles, with about 5,000 - from sea carriers - said the general designer.

    He recalled that the United States implemented a program to refurbish nuclear submarines, originally intended for delivery of intercontinental ballistic missiles, cruise missiles in the media. In particular, three submarines of class "Ohio" refitted for cruise missiles. Each boat can carry up to afford 154 cruise missiles ready for combat use.

    "This is - a great potential application in the first phase of hostilities massive strike, and it should be taken into account when building the air defense system at the level of anti-aircraft missile forces - says Sozinov. According to him, the massive use of cruise missiles in the first phase of hostilities can cause enormous damage to objects of strategic nuclear forces of Russia.

    Excellent news Austin. As I suspected Russian ABM program is larger than we thought Very Happy

    My vote man thumbsup


    and for somewhat extra explanation Very Happy

    The latest anti-aircraft missile system S-500 missile defense system will combine with Moscow

    MOSCOW, December 8 - RIA Novosti. The newest anti-aircraft missile system S-500 in the future will be combined with the missile defense system A-135, according to an anniversary edition, dedicated to the centennial of the creation of the Russian air defense systems.


    "In the future, the S-500 is planned to merge with the only Russian missile defense system A-135, which protects Moscow and central region of the country. In the near future to replace the latter must come a new missile defense system A-235," - says the publication .

    Start of operation and alerting the latest generation of S, according to preliminary estimates, scheduled for 2017.

    S-500 is a new generation of anti-aircraft missile systems "ground-to-air." It is a universal set of long-range and high-altitude interception with a high potential for missile defense and is able to intercept ballistic missiles. Prospective AAMS is capable of hitting not only ballistic, but also aerodynamic targets (aircraft, helicopters and other air targets), as well as cruise missiles.
    C-500 has a range of 600 kilometers and will be able to detect and simultaneously hit up to 10 ballistic supersonic targets flying at a speed of up to 7 kilometers per second, as well as be able to defeat warheads of hypersonic missiles. According to its characteristics C-500 will significantly exceed the standing armed with S-400 and its US rival Patriot Advanced Capability-3.

    Russian air defense forces on December 8 the centenary. Over a century of history air defense forces have gone from a small compound airships defending Petrograd, the most important kind of troops to the Armed Forces, equipped with the most modern military equipment.


    also of no less importance (if not even bigger), besides developing A-225 a mobile Russian A-225 is in development phase

    Russia will create its analogues American THAAD missile defense systems and GMD

    He also said that in the Russian Federation to create an analogue of another American missile defense complex - GMD with a missile to intercept the GBI. General designer Group recalled that on the American system has already conducted a series of tests.
    "A certain analogue of this system, but in the mobile version, is also created in the Russian Federation. He has a few other features - at the request of the Ministry of Defense, we must provide substantially more efficient interception than Americans do," - said Sozinov.

    Sorry for sounding dense, but I could not understand these official statements:

    The X-37 program is developing in the direction of increasing range to deliver nuclear warheads and a significant expansion of its capabilities. The key here, according Sozinova are maneuvering capabilities to change the orbital parameters of the flight and increase the payload.

    To counter such threats, be sure to general designer, you need to change the requirements for Russian radar systems of missile warning and space surveillance systems and weapons.


    Russia will create its analogues American THAAD missile defense systems and GMD

    My point is the S-500 is being developed to be an anti ICBM system as well as an anti satellite system.

    Therefore, the S-500 can intercept the X-37 or any incoming ballistic missile.

    So where is the need for a THAAD style system or for that matter a system that can take out X-37?

    The article is kinda vague. To my understanding, they are talking about something already in development to do these things. In the end, I believe they are talking about S-500 itself as yes, it does all those things.

    I am a little confused too... the only real advantage of THAAD was a much higher altitude for target engagement over the S-300 and S-300V because otherwise in terms of range and targets intercepted the Soviet systems outperformed THAAD in most areas and S-400 and S-500 took that a level further.

    Very simply the THAAD could not have the performance of S-500 without breaking the 1978 ABM treaty which was in effect when THAAD was developed so S-500 is a far more capable system.

    The only reason for developing a THAAD like system would be to have a smaller lighter cheaper version of S-500... say an S-250 that could be deployed more widely, say with S-350 units to engage ballistic targets outside the atmosphere.

    is this a new system or modernized old S-300Vs?

    Yes... a considerable modernisation beyond the Antei-2500 upgrade of the S-300V systems which are the army versions of the S-300 system. (identifiable by the fact that all the vehicles and support vehicles are tracked)

    A combination of S-350 and S-400 can very easily address this issue.

    THAAD was never designed to intercept MIRVs.

    Russian new ABM systems

    Post  GarryB on Wed Dec 10, 2014 9:51 am

    AFAIK the main feature of THAAD is its high altitude intercept performance... up to 150km in altitude.

    Otherwise its horizontal range is mediocre... just 200km, which is only about 40km greater than the larger S-350 missile.

    The 400km range S-400 is reported to be able to hit targets at 185km altitude and at 400km ranges so it is already superior to THAAD with 25km extra altitude and double the horizontal range...

    Like I said however, perhaps they want a smaller lighter cheaper missile that could be located with an S-350 system to do the same job. It would free up S-400 systems to protect more strategic targets... and enhance the capabilities of S-350 units.

    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.

    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.

    Aerospace Defense Force Detects Reconnaissance Satellites Spying on Russia

    According to commander of the Space Command Maj. Gen. Oleg Maidanovich, Russia's Aerospace Defense Force has recently detected on the orbit a group of reconnaissance satellites spying on Russia.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Russia's Aerospace Defense Force (VKO) has recently detected on the orbit a group of reconnaissance satellites spying on Russia, commander of the Space Command Maj. Gen. Oleg Maidanovich said Sunday.

    "Recently the staff of the Main Space Intelligence Center detected a group of newly launched satellites. The group was set to collect intelligence on the devices located on the territory of the Russian Federation," Maidanovich told Russia's Zvezda TV channel.

    He said there was no need to specify the country of origin of the satellites.

    He added that the Main Space Intelligence Center monitors about 20,000 space objects out of a total number of 100,000 on the Earth's orbit. Russia has more than 140 space objects.

    The mission of the Main Space Intelligence Center located in the Moscow Region is to detect satellites, maintain the catalogue of space objects and provide intelligence.
