Russia to Deploy New Space Surveillance System Elements in Four Regions
by Staff Writers
Moscow (Sputnik) Nov 29, 2016


The Okno-M surveillance station.

Advanced elements of the Russian Space Surveillance System will be deployed in a number of the country's regions, including Crimea and the Far East, in the next few years, according to Andrey Ivashina, spokesman for the Russian Aerospace Forces.

The next few years will see the deployment of sophisticated complexes of the Russian Space Surveillance System in the Altai Republic, the Far East, Crimea and the Republic of Buryatia, Andrey Ivashina, spokesman for the Russian Aerospace Forces, was quoted by RIA Novosti as saying.

In an interview with the Russian news network Life.ru, Ivashina explained that "this will be a network of next-generation special radio-electronic surveillance complexes." He said that unlike current systems, the new complexes will be equipped with new hardware components.

It will greatly increase their combat capabilities as compared to previous generations," Ivashina pointed out.

Using the new complexes, the Russian Aerospace Forces will be able to permanently monitor the near-Earth space at all inclinations and at a maximum altitude range, he said.

An essential part of the Russian Aerospace Forces, the Russian Space Surveillance System is an information system based on specialized tools designed for continuous and global assessment of the space situation in peacetime and during hostilities.

The system can also use the ground based optical network located on the territory of Russia and Kazakhstan.

Additionally, the system uses a network of the early-warning radars, such as Voronezh-M in the southern Russian town of Armavir. Last year, the Russian Defense Ministry said that the Okno-M station, which is based in Tajikistan in Central Asia and is part of the Russian Space Surveillance City, reached its full capacity.
