The Russian Space Monitoring System will comprise a network of more than a dozen specialized complexes by 2018; the first will appear in Siberia's Altai and Primorye regions.
The Russian Space Monitoring System has been tested efficiently, as told by the commander of Space Forces and Aerospace Defense of the Russian Federation, Major-General Oleg Maidanovich.
Earlier, it was reported that as part of the Space Monitoring System (SKKP) by 2018 more than a dozen specialized complexes will appear in the Altai, and in the Primorye region.
It was also noted that the construction and development of new radio systems for space monitoring is already underway in Moscow, Kaliningrad, Altai and Primorsky Krai.
"To date, the complex is built and government tests of the complex have been implemented, and today we already have a similar complex in the Baikonur area, which is already yielding measurements and allows us to make changes to the shared directory of space control system," Maidanovich said as reported by RIA Novosti.
The Russian Space Monitoring System is intended to regulate and send information on the problems and threats coming from space, to keep a check on the smooth deployment and operation of domestic spacecraft and to calculate other risks like manmade space debris.
Aerospace Defense troops have been active since December 1st, 2011, guarding Russia's territory from the air and space. They have a single global monitoring system of the environment in outer space, the main element of which is the space monitoring system (to monitor satellites and other space objects).
