The 3K space measurement complex monitors low-orbit space objects, performing automatic detection, tracking and measurement of coordinate and non-coordinate information

KUBINKA /Moscow region/, August 23. /TASS/. JSC " NPK " NIIDAR "(part of the concern "RTI Systems") has developed a radar complex of space measurements " 3K "(RKKI "3K") to ensure the safety of the launch and operation of satellites in orbit. This was reported to TASS on Monday in the press service of the RTI Systems concern.

"The complex provides automatic tracking of the launch vehicle from the moment of its launch from the cosmodrome and until the satellite enters the specified orbit. RKKI " ZK "conducts selection of objects in near space, separating the used parts of the launch vehicle from the withdrawn spacecraft for their further tracking," the concern said.

The complex monitors low-orbit space objects, performing automatic detection, tracking and measurement of coordinate and non-coordinate information. This allows you to quickly respond to emergency situations in orbit. Also, the 3K radar can monitor and account for space debris to minimize the risks of satellites operating in near space.

"Today, the task of creating a grouping of low-orbit communication satellites to ensure maximum broadband Internet coverage is urgent in the world. In this regard, there is a growing need for comprehensive monitoring of the operation of this constellation of satellites in orbit. The RKKI 3K developed by NIIDAR provides full control over both communication satellites delivered to orbit and already located there, which minimizes the occurrence of possible critical situations in their work, "the press service quotes the words of Yuri Anoshko, General Director of Concern RTI Systems JSC.

The radar station " 3K " is a stationary radar of the centimeter wave range, providing circular control within 2000 km. The station is designed using the technology of high factory readiness, which allows its installation in a short time.

The International military-technical Forum "Army-2021" is held in the Patriot Shopping Center from August 22 to 28.
