638 satellites and 148 rockets: the Sphere project will load the space industry of the Russian Federation

In 2018, due to anti-Russian sanctions, the operation of the GLONASS domestic navigation system was threatened. The purchase of foreign components for our satellites became impossible, and stocks were coming to an end. And now, on the eve it became known that the problem of import substitution has been resolved.


At present, four fully Russian GLONASS-K1 satellites and one GLONASS-K2 high-power satellite have been manufactured. All of them will go into orbit this year, and in the next 5 years 27 more satellites will be created. However, this is not all.

By 2030, the Russian orbital group should have 638 vehicles. All of them will be part of the Sphere project, announced in 2018. The latter is a direct competitor to the foreign analogues of OneWeb and StarLink and is designed to provide our country with independent access to high-speed Internet.

To implement the ambitious project, Russia will have to create additional enterprises for the production of spacecraft. In addition, to launch the aforementioned satellites, according to preliminary estimates, it will be necessary to build 148 missiles. And this, apart from our obligations under other foreign contracts.

Thus, our space industry will be as busy as possible in the next 10 years. And this, in turn, will support domestic industry and create new jobs.

    Now OneWeb satellite weighs 150 kg. There will be about 900.
    Now StarLink satellite weighs 227 kg. There will be about 12,000 with a subsequent increase to 42 thousand. And SpaceX launches them in batches of 62 (or 64) with one rocket.
    Moreover, the main idea of ​​OneWeb and StarLink is to cover the entire (ALL!) Globe with the Internet and communication.
    He looked at Wiki, what is the “Sphere”. The brainchild of the military-industrial complex -

    ... By 2030, the constellation should have 638 spacecraft, including 334 communication satellites, 55 navigation satellites and 249 Earth remote sensing devices.

    Those. theoretically - military satellites with a small civilian bias. There is no need to say that they will sow “eternal-good-needed” to the whole world, and therefore it is impossible to compare them with OneWeb or StarLink.
    No, according to the number of satellites you can, of course - that’s what they did in the USSR ....
    By the way, if import substitution has occurred, then why are the satellites so heavy? Really on radio tubes?

    People like you do not understand that they are purely military pieces of iron, and, with a "slight civilian bias," they do not return money to the economy. Refunds occur only when citizens pay for services with their rubles. The budget can be replenished and multiplied not on military products, but on civilian ones.

    Did I mean that? I talked about "replenishing the budget" at the expense of military products.
