    Russia to build submarine-detecting satellite

    Post  Rmf on Mon Dec 07, 2015 12:22 am

    too high orbit.... but maybe some dual use tehnology and military modification is planned.

    Soyuz-2-1v launches Kanopus-ST

    On December 5, 2015, the Russian military launched an experimental satellite reportedly to test capability for tracking enemy submarines. The Kanopus-ST satellite rode into orbit on the second Soyuz-2-1v rocket, following the successful inaugural launch of that booster at the end of 2013.


    History of Kanopus-ST project


    By the mid-1980s, experiments conducted from aircraft proved that microwave radiation can be used to study properties of water in the atmosphere and in the oceans. Such important parameters as level of salinity and temperature of the sea surface could be determined by bouncing ultra-high-frequency waves, or UHFs, from the surface of water with the help of instruments known as radiometers. (764) In theory, the penetrating properties of radio waves could also be used to bounce signals off underwater objects, such as submarines. Not surprisingly, the field attracted the attention of the military.

    In 1990, a group of Soviet engineers led by Grigory Chernyavsky at the nation's Academy of Sciences began researching the use of microwaves for monitoring oceans from space. The team claimed the development of the first "probing microwave scanner," MTV3A, which was launched on Dec. 10, 2001, onboard the Meteor-3M-1 satellite. The instrument was designed to measure crucial weather parameters, such as water content in the clouds, temperature and humidity in the atmosphere, radiation levels and wind speeds.

    A more advanced UHF radiometer designated MTV3A-OK was developed for the Ukrainian Sich-1M satellite, which was launched on Dec. 24, 2004. The instrument had a wider UHF range and, in addition, featured optical, ultraviolet and infrared sensors.

    The third incarnation of the Russian UHF radiometer became a part of the multi-spectral payload complex designated BIK-GYa-1. The multi-spectral suit of instruments was designed to monitor cloud cover and its water content, atmospheric humidity and temperature at different altitudes, amounts of rainfall, ocean surface temperature, including ice and snow condition, wind speed at ocean surface and dynamics of oceanic currents. Overland, the same sensors would be able to check on the condition of foliage, soil temperature and humidity and detect forest fires. (765)

    The payload was miniaturized to 160 kilograms to fit into a low-cost micro-satellite, such as the Vulkan (volcano) platform developed at the turn of the 21st century at the Moscow-based VNIIEM institute. The same company also built Meteor and Kanopus satellites.

    Well it's more of an impossible dream to track submarines via sats. I posted an article.from atimes showing US is making satellites to track subs and then GarryB explained how difficult it is.

    NATO obviously has assets in Russia that can be used to sabotage critical systems. That is what a good 15 years of rot
    will get you, people selling their mothers for a dollar. This incident offers evidence as to why NATO leaders, i.e. the US,
    are so confident about winning a nuclear war against Russia. They likely have all the key command and control systems
    thoroughly compromised both technologically and in terms of meat puppets.

    Reason is one of the locks malfunctioned. Although, Roscosmos has a history of odd malfunctions amd idiotic mistakes. So it cannot be ruled out of sabotage.  There needs to be hightened security at the facilities and a forever watching eye on the workers.  Maybe more automation as well to be introduced.

    I agree that it is premature to conclude that it was sabotage. But these sorts of "accidents" where some rag is left in the wrong place, or some other
    little detail that is 100% human related fails just smell so bad. It's as if there are retards working these jobs. I doubt that they are retards and sellouts
    is much more likely.

    America can basically buy any weak minded human on the planet. Promising them millions of dollars and the good life the US paradise is extremely
    effective.

    I do not doubt human stupidity. For instance, Russias largest shipyard had an explosion today, killing 1 person and injuring 6 others due to welding and painting at same time...... who does this? Retards. And so it cost a person their life, and risking others, as well as damage to the facility.

    I think it is a mixture of poor business practice, lack of proper screening employees, maybe managements decisions, and poor pay so quality of workers drop.  I figure its food for thought.

    Which is completely retarded.
    Someone needs to be fired over this.  No

    About the Sabotage conspiracies.. is not impossible..
    and is really worry how Russian satellites launched from Russia have to fly over Alaska ,
    which could make them an easy target of their missiles or lazers or rail guns.

    Whatever it happened.. Russia really needs to take more seriously space and cut budget somewhere else ie.. like Sports.. or Pensions to old people and put it on space. And stop wasting
    money is useless things , like financing world war 2 veterans from other nations fought on the side of Russia.

    Looks for example at this TOTAL IDIOCY and total incompetence of Kremlin of how Russia was wasting its money..  No

    http://bnn-news.com/russia-plans-stop-paying-pensions-citizens-living-127100

    And that law was suggested in 2015.. when it should have been made since Russia Federation was created. So Far Russia have been a real charity financing Russians who leave latvia and Israel for more than a decade and does not contribute in any way to Russian economy. it needs to raise the age of pensioners and create new laws that regulate which pensioners
    can receive money.. ie.. People with crime or that have good properties and good jobs should not be paid a single ruble. And invest a lot in local Tourism.. It boils my blood to know 3 million Russian citizens every year goes to Turkey to spend their money there.. when they could be spending that money in Russia instead.

    A new Russian space system, for optical-electronic intelligence

    According to Ivan Safronov in his article "On the enemy will look with a two-meter objectivity," published by the newspaper "Kommersant", in 2019 the Russian Defense Ministry plans to deploy optical-electronic reconnaissance system, which will become the basis for the latest spacecraft of "Hrazdan". They will come to replace the satellites such as "Persona" to which the military had high hopes in the early 2000s, but were able to get only a few years ago.

    The fact that the Russian Space Forces, and the Samara Space-Rocket Center "Progress" are consulting on the technical design of the type 14F156 satellites "Hrazdan", "Y" spoke two-informed source in the industry, and confirmed the source "b" in the military. Information in the public domain about the devices of this type is extremely small. For example, "14F156 product" appears in the updated yesterday term purchases of goods, works and services on the official website of "progress". We also know that in July 2015 the company ordered a study whose objective was to identify and import a previous electronic-component base used in the onboard equipment 14F156 products and components subject to "export restrictions". Get the official information from the "Progress" yesterday failed, a spokesman for the Space Forces comment "b" was unavailable.

    St. Petersburg design bureau to assemble reconnaissance satellite

    MOSCOW, June 26. /TASS/. The St. Petersburg-based design bureau Arsenal will assemble a modernized reconnaissance imagery satellite for Russia’s Defense Ministry this year, the design bureau said in its annual report on Monday.

    "In 2015-2016, the production volume declined as the output of item 11F695 [Kobalt] was terminated but in 2017 a new product will be delivered," the report says.

    According to the data posted on the Arsenal design bureau’s website, the company is currently assembling two types of satellites: the Lotos-S and the Pion-NKS. The first type of the satellites is designed to determine the coordinates of radio-technical means of ground-based facilities and exercise control in various radiofrequency bands of the ionosphere and in the near-Earth space. The second type is designed for radar and radio-technical surveillance of ground objectives and control in various radiofrequency bands in the ionosphere and in the near-Earth space.

    The last Kobalt-M film-return reconnaissance satellite came back to the Earth in 2015.

    The Kobalt-M is a series of specialized reconnaissance imagery satellites developed by the Samara-based Progress Rocket and Space Center and produced by the Arsenal enterprise. The first modernized satellite was launched in the fall of 2004. The last Kobalt-M satellite became the tenth representative of this series.
