Russian satellite system of the new generation will start working in five years

Domestic satellite communications constellation "Messenger" of the second generation is planned to be deployed in orbit in 2025. This was announced yesterday by Pavel Cherenkov, the head of the company "Gonets Satellite System".

The functionary said that at the moment the enterprise together with the "Information satellite systems named after Reshetnev ”and other partners form a draft design of a new system. The next generation satellite constellation is planned to be commissioned in 5 years. The new communication system received the code name "Gonets-2.0".

Earlier, in November last year, Cherenkov's deputy Oleg Khimochko announced that the launch of satellites for the Gonets-2 constellation would begin in 2024. In total, 28 spacecraft will be sent into orbit, which will be located in four planes (7 in each). The orbital altitude will be 1,5 thousand km.

    -China and the United States in five years ... probably already on quantum computers ("quantum computing") will go ... - -and will start "right from the sky" from our satellites to read any information ... -such "hot Russian secrets- news "(like hotcakes) ...
    -Yes, and will even this "Russian satellite system of a new generation" work ... in five years ... -Who will even remember about it ???
    -Someone can remember about the so-called "Vostochny cosmodrome" ??? - Well, so no one will remember about this "new generation satellite system" ...
