    New GEO early warning satellite is said not to be ready


    Interfax quotes an industry source as saying that the new-generation geostationary early-warning satellite will not be ready for launch in 2016. According to the report, the satellite is still in production and the manufacturers (RKK Energiya is the lead contractor) are awaiting results of the tests of the first satellite of the EKS system. The satellite, Cosmos-2510, was launched into highly-elliptical orbit in November 2015. According to the Interfax source, two HEO satellites have been manufactured so far, one of them is in orbit.

    The Interfax report appeared shortly after other reports suggested that the new early-warning satellite will be launched by a heavy Angara-A5 launcher by the end of 2016. The launcher made its maiden flight (with a satellite mockup) in November 2015. The 2016 Angara-A5 launch would probably still take place, but with a different satellite, Angola's Angosat. The GEO EKS launch, which will probably use Angara-A5 as well, appears to be moved to at least 2017.

    Russian missile warning system filled up dozens of new satellites by 2020

    Moscow. 20th of December. Interfax-AVN - About 10 new spacecraft plans to launch video conferencing Russian Federation up to 2020 within the framework of improving the missile warning system, the chief of the General Staff - First Deputy Commander of the Russian Aerospace Forces, Lieutenant-General Paul Kurachenko.

    "To improve the warning system (EWS) is planned to build five high prefabrication radar until 2020" Voronezh ", and the commissioning of about 10 new spacecraft single space launch detection systems and command and control," - he said Tuesday on scientific and technical conference in Moscow.

    Launch of the second satellite of the EKS early-warning system



    On May 25, 2017 at 09:33:41 MSK (06:33:41 UTC), the Air and Space Forces successfully launched a Soyuz-2.1b launcher from the launch pad No. 4 of the launch complex No. 43 of the Plesetsk site. Press reports quote official statement as saying the launcher carried "a new-generation satellite for the ministry of defense." The satellite is being delivered to the orbit by a Fregat-M booster. (More photos of the launch.)

    The satellite is the second "Tundra" spacecraft of the new early-warning system, known as EKS. The system is expected to include satellites in Molniya-type highly-elliptical orbit as well as geostationary satellites. It will probably be designated Cosmos-2518. The first satellite of the system, Cosmos-2510, was launched into an HEO orbit in November 2015. Cosmos-2518 appears to be an HEO satellite as well--it was reported that the industry delivered the first two HEO satellites in October 2015 and that there was a delay with the first GEO spacecraft.

    Satellites of the EKS system are the only early-warning satellites that are currently in service. The old US-KS/US-KMO system ended operations in 2014. A working early-warning constellation would probably include about ten satellites on HEO as well as several GEO satellites. The new armament program appears to call for ten new satellite launches by 2020. It is difficult to see, however, how this plan can materialize. It should be noted, though, that Russia does not depend on the space tier of its early-warning system to the extent the United States does, so the lack of coverage by satellite does not necessarily increase the risk of miscalculation.

    US reported a Russian military satellite burnt in the atmosphere

    The satellite "Cosmos-2430" warning system for a rocket attack "Eye" descended from orbit and burned in the atmosphere. On January 10, TASS news agency reports, citing the command of the aerospace defense of North America.

    The device was launched into space on October 23, 2007 from the Plesetsk cosmodrome and had to track the launches of intercontinental ballistic missiles from the United States.

    It is noted that the satellite resource was developed back in 2012 or in 2014, after which the connection with it was lost.

    The satellite was a part of Russia’s Oko missile attack early warning system
