Launched the second phase of flight testing of the spacecraft "Spektr-R". / August 10, 2011 /

Experts NPO. Lavochkin Association initiated the second phase of flight testing technology satellite «Spektr-R».

In accordance with the flight testing of the space segment «Spektr-R» continue testing modes of operation of the systems, research on dynamic and thermal parameters of apaarata. The state board systems «spectrum» is normal.

Specialists carried out a phased integration of scientific instruments. Conducted control include scientific equipment «Plasma-F», designed to study the solar plasma. Also activated two-way radio (PFS) phase synchronization from the highly informative radio complex (used for the communication of scientific information) and the inclusion of explicit testing the detector meteorites. All participating instruments are functioning normally.

Manage the device performs the CPS NPO. Lavochkin. Every day we two sessions with the spacecraft, «Spektr-R» to transfer command of the program and receive telemetry data.

In working with the radio telescope involved in Russia’s largest antenna complexes of P-2500 (diameter 70 m) in the coastal city of Ussuriysk and TNA-1500 (diameter 64 m) in the suburban village of Bear Lake. To receive telemetry from the spacecraft at short distances (up to 100 sq km), an antenna NA-3, 7, an NPO. Lavochkin.

About «Spectrum»

Space Complex «Spektr-R» is intended to meet the challenges of studying galaxies and quasars in the radio, the structure and dynamics of the regions adjacent to the massive black holes, neutron stars in our galaxy, the structure of the interstellar plasma and the evolution of compact extragalactic sources, the measurement of distances and velocities of pulsars and other galactic sources, the determination of fundamental cosmological parameters.
