    Russian Missile Early-Warning Satellites

    Post  George1 on Thu Apr 19, 2012 10:57 pm

    The Russian Defense Ministry has signed contracts on the development and construction of satellites capable of detecting launches of ballistic missiles, First Deputy Defense Minister Alexander Sukhorukov said on Thursday.

    The new missile early warning satellites will be part of a unified aerospace defense network being formed in Russia.

    “Several military satellites will be launched this year,” Sukhorukov said.

    Russia, which reportedly operates a constellation of 60 to 70 military satellites, is planning to launch at least 100 new military satellites in the next 10 years to boost its reconnaissance and missile detection capabilities.

    The expansion of the military satellite cluster will also boost global positioning and mapping capabilities of the Russian military, which is necessary to guide advanced high-precision weapons being developed in Russia.

    So they will include... based on that article... a combination of more and better Glonass satellites (to improve accuracy of Russian guided weapons) plus satellites for precise mapping of the earth... there is no point having a working GPS system if you don't have accurate digital maps of various areas, and of course early warning IR satellites that can detects the launch plumes of ballistic missiles... such satellites might also be useful for tracking wild fires in Russia during the summer season.

    I would rather suspect that the new Space and Air Defence force would be interested in space based monitoring of Russian territory too, while the Navy will have an interest in IR satellites able to detect ships at sea and the wakes of submarines as they churn up cooler water as they travel along.

    Russia's only geostationary early-warning satellite, Cosmos-2479, launched in March 2012, has ceased operations. In March-April 2014 the satellite did not perform its regular station-keeping maneuver and, according to Kommersant, was formally declared nonoperational by the ministry of defense in April 2014.

    Cosmos-2479 was a satellite of the 71Kh6 type that was developed as part of the US-KMO early-warning system, which was supposed to provide complete coverage of the northern hemisphere. However, the system never reached operational status and Cosmos-2479 was said to be the last 71Kh6 spacecraft. It was deployed at the point 166E (after a brief stop at 80E) and apparently worked with the Eastern Command Center that became operational in April 2012.

    The loss of Cosmos-2379 leaves Russia's early-warning system with two satellites on highly-elliptical orbits - Cosmos-2422 and Cosmos-2446, launched in July 2006 and December 2008 respectively.

    New-generation early-warning satellite, Tundra, to be launched in 2014

    According to a report in Kommersant, Russia will launch a new-generation early-warning satellite, codenamed Tundra and identified as 14F142, by the end of 2014. The launch will begin deployment of a new system, EKS (Edinaya Kosmicheskaya Systema, Integrated Space System), which will provide early-warning as well as some other functions (probably space surveillance or, as some suggested, secure communication). Kommersant reports that the satellite will be delivered into orbit by a Soyuz-2.1b launcher with a Fregat booster stage. According to the report, the new system will have true look-down capability and will detect missiles launches originated from the sea as well as from the U.S. territory. Tundra will be deployed on a highly-elliptical orbit, but earlier reports suggested that the complete system could include geostationary satellites as well.

    The flight tests of the EKS system were expected to begin in 2009, but it then slipped to 2011-2012. Now it looks like the system is finally ready for initial deployment.

    EKS will replace satellites of the old US-KS and US-KMO systems - as of June 2014 only two 73D6 spacecraft of the US-KS (Oko) system, deployed on highly-elliptical orbits, were operational. The last 71Kh6 geostationary satellite of the US-KMO system was lost in March-April 2014.

    Russia to launch new missile attack warning satellites next year

    YALTA, October 3. /TASS/. The first satellites of the future orbital grouping of Russia’s missile warning system’s space-based echelon are expected to be launched in 2015, the director general of Mintz Radio-Technical Institute and the chief designer said on Friday.

    Russia is currently developing a space system that is set to become a space echelon of the missile warning system designed to detect and track launches of ballistic missiles around the world. “Test launches will be made next year,” Sergey Boyev said, giving no details on the number of satellites in the future grouping.


    The results obtained by designers of the single space system in the Kometa corporation “fuel confidence that the first tests and the first launches will be successful,” he added. “In the end, we will boost the grouping to the needed number,” Boyev stressed.

    The Western sanctions against Russia are unlikely to seriously affect the terms of the project’s implementation and the quality of the system, the director general said. “We have been developing a digital and component base for a long time, and I expect that a whole range of imported decisions will be replaced by our own,” Boyev explained.

    In April, Russia lost the last geostationary satellite of the country’s Oko (Eye) orbital missile early warning network, established in 1990s to survey countries possessing nuclear-capable ballistic missiles and detect possible launches.

    Russia’s military officials said out of six satellites working on the high-elliptical orbit, only two continue performing tasks just three hours per day. The loss of the satellite is not expected to affect the efficiency of the missile warning system, which is mainly based on ground radar stations.

    Russia has been developing a new system of air and space defense that will incorporate components for air space reconnaissance, a source from the Russian Defense Ministry told TASS.

    The air reconnaissance component will provide information about detected targets to air defense troops and monitor air defense and space defense facilities, the source said.

    Russia to Create Space-Based Ballistic Missile Warning System

    MOSCOW, October 9 (RIA Novosti) – Russia will create a space-based ballistic missile warning system capable of detecting launches of existing and test missiles, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said Thursday.

    "The creation of an integrated space system is one of the key directions in which Russian nuclear deterrent forces will be developed. As a result, we will be able to detect sea and ground launches of various types of ballistic missiles, including prototypes," Shoigu said.

    According to the defense minister, the system will replace Soviet-made ballistic missile early warning systems.

    The integrated space system will comprise next-generation space vehicles and modernized space centers that would ensure control over the satellites and allow for automatic information processing.

    Hopefully they use the reliable Soyuz-2 to launch this , Cant depend on Proton-M


    Single space system in the Russian Federation for 2018 will include 10 satellites

    http://ria.ru/defense_safety/20141129/1035744688.html

    MOSCOW, November 29 - RIA Novosti. The single space system (CEN), created in Russia by 2018 will receive ten satellites, the first of which will launch into orbit in 2015, said Saturday the deputy commander of the Space Command Aerospace Defense (ASD ) Major-General Anatoly Nestechuk.

    "Colossal developing rapidly work towards a unified system of space. If we talk about specific dates, in 2015 planned launch of a new spacecraft system, I think that the orbital group of 10 satellites of this system in 2018 will be fully operational" - Nestechuk said the radio station "Echo of Moscow" .

    As stated earlier, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, creating a single space system (CEN) will allow Russia to detect launches of both existing and emerging ballistic missile from the world's oceans and from the country, conducting tests.

    According to him, this system will replace the means of missile warning, developed in the Soviet era. The structure of CEN will new generation spacecraft, as well as modernized command centers that provide management constellation, reception and processing of information in an automatic mode.

    They appear to be missile launch warning satellites... some in geostationary orbits will be OK but some covering the polar regions would be needed to check for SLBM launches/tests too.

    EW usually means Electronic Warfare... rather than Early Warning BTW.

    New Russian Space Anti-Ballistic Missile System On-Track for 2020: Engineer

    Сhief engineer from the Russian defense corporation Almaz Antey stated that an improved early warning system in space for detecting ballistic missile launches will be in place by 2020.

    MOSCOW, December 8 (Sputnik) – An improved early warning system in space for detecting ballistic missile launches will be in place by 2020, a chief engineer from the Russian defense corporation Almaz Antey said Monday.

    “In the development of the space echelon, everything necessary has been accepted and the technical solutions have been tested, and we expect that the low-Earth orbit space echelon early warning ballistic missile system in its improved form will by 2020, or even earlier, provide the necessary characteristics of a constant warning of ballistic missile launches,” Pavel Sozinov said during a conference.

    The possibilities to detect moving targets have significantly improved in recent years, Sozinov stated, speaking of the creation of an identification system over the territory of Russia at medium and high altitudes. When it comes to detecting enemy targets at low and very low altitudes, "the possibilities at this perimeter are, of course, very limited," the chief engineer said.

    Sozinov also noted that the Russian defense industry has made significant progress in the creation of fuel for interceptor missiles and thermal barrier coatings that can withstand heat up to 3,500 degrees Celsius.

    The creation of a unified space-based ballistic missile warning system in Russia was announced by Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu in October. The system is set to replace Soviet-made ballistic missile early warning systems and will comprise next-generation space vehicles and modernized space centers that would ensure control over satellites and allow automatic information processing.

    Russia’s last satellites for identifying ballistic missile launchers cease operation

    The launch of the first satellite Tundra of Russia’s unified space system will take place no earlier than in June, until then, there will be no satellites in Russia's missile warning system

    MOSCOW, February 11. /TASS/. Two last satellites of the Oko program for identifying ballistic missile launchers ceased operating in January, the Kommersant daily wrote on Wednesday.

    The launch of the first satellite Tundra of Russia’s unified space system will take place no earlier than in June, the daily said. Until then, there will be no satellites in the space echelon of Russia’s missile warning system.

    "Oko-1 was part of Russia’s missile warning system. The system employed six satellites on geostationary and highly elliptical orbits. The last geostationary satellite got out of order in April last year. The two remaining satellites on highly elliptical orbits could operate only several hours a day. In the beginning of January, they also went out of order," Kommersant said.

    The new generation early warning satellite Tundra was planned to be launched in 2013. However, the launch was postponed several times as the apparatus was not ready to be put into operation, sources in the aerospace industry told the daily.

    In October 2014, Deputy Defense Minister Yury Borisov said that despite the deterioration of the space echelon of Russia’s missile warning system, Russia "has almost no unprotected territories" thanks to radars. "Today we have a solid information space, we are protected well from all potentially dangerous directions," Borisov noted.

    What are the disadvantages ?

    I mean land based radar vs space ? My guess is awareness. So if you detect it later you get a shorter time frame to respond.

    Russia definetly needs some modern eye in the sky to see potential ICBM/SLBM launches

    Radar means you don't see it coming till it pops up into view, while satellites operate over enemy territory so get the earliest warning.

    The radar provides precise information about trajectory and speed of of course...

    Russia will launch first sattelite of Missile Attack Warning System in July-December 2015

    The data such satellites will be receiving will be reported to the MAWS command center and then to the National Center for Control over State Defense

    MOSCOW, April 2. /TASS/. Russian Defense Ministry has issued a report on a forthcoming expansion of the national orbital grouping of the space echelon of the Missile Attack Warning System (MAWS).

    "The launch of the first spacecraft of the new generation has been scheduled for the second half of 2015," a spokesman for the ministry said. "The satellite will be taken into orbit by the Soyuz launch vehicle."

    He indicated that the Angara carrier rocket would not be used for this particular launch, since the Angara’s next mission had already been planned for 2016.

    "There are no gaps in the MAWS orbital grouping and there will never be," the spokesman said. "The new-generation satellites have a number of distinct features, like an extended service life and the performance characteristics that are better by a factor of several times."

    The satellites have been created on a new component base designed and manufactured in Russia. "Just one satellite in the new family will be able to replace several five or six satellites of the previous generation."

    "Simultaneously, we’re developing the ground-based elements of the MAWS through the commissioning of new radars of a high degree of factory-gate operational readiness, the spokesman said. "Both echelons will continue performing the previous tasks but doing so at a new level of quality and along a radically overhauled pattern."

    Along with it, the space-based and ground-based components of the system will be functioning in maximum coordination with each other and will complement each other mutually.

    The data they will be receiving will then be reported to the MAWS command center and then to, to the National Center for Control over State Defense.

    The commander of Russia’s Aerospace Defense Force, Gen Alexander Golovko, said somewhat earlier that the military authorities hoped to begin the unfolding of the first stage of the Integrated Space System as of 2015 and this would help ensure the capability to control the areas with a high risk of missile attacks round the clock.

    Russia to Launch First Satellite for New Space Defense Network in November



    The first early warning ground-based station for the new network has been built in the Altay region and it has passed state trials.

    KRASNOGORSK (Sputnik) — The development of Russia's new unified missile early warning network is proceeding on schedule, the first satellite of the space component will be launched in November 2015, a senior Aerospace Defense Forces (ADF) commander said Monday.

    "Everything is going according to the schedule, approved by the Russian defense minister," said Maj. Gen. Oleg Maydanovich, chief of the ADF Space Command.

    "We are practically ready to put the first satellite in high-elliptic orbit in November," Maydanovich said.

    He added that the first early warning ground-based station for the new network has been built in the Altay region and it has passed state trials.

    Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu annouced in October last year that Russia had started the development of a new unified network to detect ballistic missile launches, which would comprise new-generation satellites, new ground-based space monitoring stations and advanced computer networks.

    Interesting reports..

    The first one shows American VICE media "JOke" of whether US should launch a Nuclear
    attack on Russia now that the early warnings satellites are out of service.


    Vice News: Now Is The Time For Nuclear War With Russia?!


    http://russia-insider.com/en/vice-now-would-be-pretty-good-time-nuke-russia/ri8663


    The second link explain in more detail.. the question asked before about difference
    between Satellite early warning and Radar early warning and how both are better..
    but having only radars can do the job..




    As you see the information charts.. the most likely attack of Americans in Russia.. in case
    they wants to commit suicide and start a nuclear war.. is from the borders of Russia.. right
    there withing Norway coast. (WHich Putin Told recently ,that Americans have always parked near the Norway coast Ohio Submarines with Nukes aiming at moscow..) that will take ~17minutes to reach Moscow.. and according to the graphs ,~11 minutes to be detected after launch by Russian early radars.. and about 14 minutes by Satelites early warning system.

    So in the most shortest distance.. the difference between early radar and satellite is like 3 minutes extra time.   If the missiles launched from US territory Silos, Russia will lose like 15 minutes early warning.. time without satelites ,still they will be detected withing the 10+ minutes before impact by early radars.

    http://russianforces.org/blog/2015/02/russia_lost_all_its_early-warn.shtml


    So according to Putin , if we are to take his word.. The "freedom Loving" nation of  USA...
    have permanently deployed nuclear heavy submarines with ICBMS withing the coast of Norway.
    that its Trident II missiles can reach Moscow in just ~15 minutes..  

    Didn't something like this created the CUban Missile Crisis? when Russia deployed Nuclear missiles in Cuba?  and now you have the Americans 365 days a year near Russia coast permanently with Nukes?  Shouldn't this become a major flagrant security threat against
    Russia federation , and justify a very hostile and aggressive stance of Russia.. like flying
    with nuclear Bombers near US coast?  or sending Submarines near US coast?

    Other important info.. by reading the Comments in the Russian Forces.org site..
    is that the distance to central Russia where Russia have located many nukes is longer..
    should be another 10minutes.. for any US trident missile Attack.  

    All this reinforce my believe that Russia needs to move their interceptors to space..
    Using Kinetic Interceptors.. that way ,any trident attack on Russia can be intercepted
    BEFORE it reach Space on its launch fly path.  intercepting the missiles withing seconds
    they launched.. not 15 minutes or 30 minutes before.

    Interceptors could be just Radio electronic weapons ,that jam the guidance of any enemy
    missile.. or it could be lazer or EMP attacks to destroy the electronics of the missile , so it
    stop working its engines.. or simply a kinetic projectile.

    so it does not violate any treaty.. and if Americans move away
    from space treaties.. then Russia can quickly arm with nukes those same space defense
    satellites.

    This also reinforce the need of Russia to have its own space station.. on an orbit that covers all
    Russia.. that way Russia will have a God's eye view of Russian territory and will easily see
    any Missile either ballitic or cruise missile that move in the direction of Russia territory..
    and with Powerful optics Russia will be able to see very close in the ground any enemy movements on the ground.

    Russia will test a new military system in space
    Russian Aviaton » Thursday July 16, 2015 17:53 MSK

    In summer 2015 Russian Aerospace Defense Forces will test the first satellite of the Integrated Space System (ISS), Rossiyskaya gazeta reports with reference to the representative of the Aerospace Defense Forces, Alexey Zolotukhin.

    «Flight development tests of the first satellite of the ISS will be started at Plesetsk cosmodrome,» Colonel Zolotukhin said.

    ISS is the further development of missile early-warning system. By 2018 the orbital constellation of ISS will reach 10 ones; it will allow Russia to detect launches of ballistic missiles (both the existing and advanced ones) from the ocean area and territory of different countries, which are testing such missiles. The first satellite of the system should be launched in 2015.

    In the course of a summer training started on June 1st military units of the Aerospace Defense Forces will carry out 13 military exercises, including firing practice, using S-400 Triumph and Pantsir-1S systems. Over 10 command post exercises and training sessions will be carried out along with joint exercise with the participation of member countries of CIS air defense system “Boevoe sodruzhestvo 2015” (stands for Combat Comradeship 2015). The Voronezh radar stations are being put into service. New radar stations will be installed in the Komi Republic, Orenburg and Murmansk Regions.

    Russian Defense Ministry Receives New Early Warning Network Satellites

    The Russian Defense Ministry has received two state of the art satellites as part of the country’s new missile early warning network, Deputy Minister Yuri Borisov said Friday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The Russian Aerospace Forces space command said this summer the network’s first satellite was expected to be launched into high-elliptic orbit in November.

    "In the interest of the Defense Ministry and Roscosmos, military representatives received six Soyuz and Proton carrier rockets, two Briz-M upper-stage rockets, two satellites for the EKS Integrated Space System," Borisov said.

    Up to 10 satellites are expected to enter into service by 2018.

    Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu announced in October 2014 that Russia had started the development of a new unified network to detect ballistic missile launches. The system would comprise new-generation satellites, new ground-based space monitoring stations and advanced computer networks.
