(…continued from Part 2…) Russian Satellites During the Gulf War of 1990-1991*, the US National Reconnaissance Office wasn’t even officially acknowledged yet, despite operating for 30 years and being featured in the Washington Post. It was charged with building, launching and operating satellites and then disseminating the information collected. It did a very good job building effective satellites on time and under budget. (Instead of returning the money they saved, they started building a lavish set of headquarters buildings. The whistleblower complaints led to public acknowledgement of the NRO). It also did a very good job collecting information. The problem was with processing and dissemination.
HI, GLONASS is healthy as newer before. 23 satellites are usual count. In summer started first satellite of new line K2. Lifetime is focused not on fuel but accuracy.
Hey Don, there is another important aspect you did not cover - the internal political games (mouse fuss). Another round of informational war to dismiss Zaluzhny. https://www.facebook.com/m.bezuhla
For some reason cant copy direct link to the post. There are 2-3 posts on this topic for the past 48 hours. This unpleasant woman is a talking head for all unpopular thoughts of OP (office of president) and MP from presidential fraction.
Thank you so much for this, learned alot about Satellites and their shortcomings when it comes to military applications.
GLONASS position accuracy is 5-10m while GPS is 3.5-7.8m.
It is an ageing network, the first updated GLONASS-K2 satellite reached launch in the middle of 2023, or a decade behind the original schedule.
It is claimed two more are being built, probably delayed by sanctions
Thank you, Don. i learned a lot about satellites.
Another update: a debris of a Shahed contained a previously unseen block with a Ukrainian SIM card. That can be used to:
* Find the drone's coordinates and feed them to the navigation module, instead of GPS. However, that is going to be imprecise.
* Change the targeting during the flight via the mobile internet. That will allow Shaheds to target Ukrainian AD positions as soon as they are revealed by shooting down the first line of Shaheds.
Спасибо. Почему есть чувство, что моя страна проиграет... Все говорят, что у русских Дронов много и они сотрут города к весне.
