Baikonur is mounted a measuring station for the flight control interplanetary station "Phobos-Grunt". / September 8, 2011 /

At Baikonur continues preparations for the upcoming launch of the rocket «Zenit-2M» with interplanetary station «Phobos-Grunt» in November 2011.

In order to monitor and control system in the first two weeks on the 23rd floor space center (measuring station «Saturn») specialists TsENKI and OAO «Russian Space Systems» is the deployment of telemetry complex «spectrum of the X-Men». Decided to create a new station with an antenna complex «courier», previously used to work for launch communications satellites «Lightning». Antenna diameter is only 12 meters, but the complex equipment and powerful modern highly sensitive technique allows to control the flight of interplanetary probes at a distance of several million kilometers.

Within two weeks, experts expect to complete installation of equipment, and then begin testing the transmitters, receivers and computer equipment industry. The culmination of a complex telemetry «Spectrum-X» will be its commissioning.
