Kosmos-2473 (Garpun) spacecraft launch

September 21, 2011 in 2 hours 47 minutes Moscow time, with 81 launch pad Baikonur Cosmodrome launch rocket Proton-M, which orbited the spacecraft for the Ministry of Defence.

9 minutes after liftoff Orbital unit in the spacecraft and upper stage Breez-M separated from the third stage carrier rocket Proton-M and began to autonomous flight.

Start rocket Proton-M and the removal of the upper stage from the spacecraft into the desired orbit were in normal mode. The satellite is assigned a serial number Kosmos-2473.

The satellite belongs to a series of Garpun spacecraft - military satellites, repeaters, set up to ensure speedy relay large volumes of digital data from satellites and electronic intelligence sverhdetalnogo specific observations on the ground receiving station in real time. Garpun spacecraft will replace a similar purpose to the Potok spacecraft that were part of the Global Space Command and the relay system of the USSR.

The modernized launch vehicle heavy-class Proton-M with high power and performance is designed to launch payloads into various earth orbits and escape trajectories.

External dimensions of the rocket (with the exception of the nose fairing), weighted for design, features a modernized missile engines remained virtually the same as that of the carrier rocket Proton-K. Modernization (replacement) was subjected to a control system. This change has improved both the energy and operational and environmental characteristics of new media (decrease nevyrabatyvaemyh residual components of rocket fuel in the exhaust stage, along with the introduction of emission remains at safe altitudes).

Booster Proton-M has a design-layout scheme tandem with a cross-division levels.

To further improve heavy rocket capabilities for delivering payloads into a wide variety of target orbits, the Khrunichev Space Center has developed, tested and commissioned the Breeze-M upper stage.

The Breeze-M upper stage was flight tested in 1999 and proved a reliable and highly accurate system. The Breeze-M upper stage enables to deliver heavier payloads – up to 3.2 tons – to geostationary orbits.

The compact design of the upper stage includes a core section
surrounded by a toroidal auxiliary section of propellant tanks which is jettisoned in flight following depletion. The Breeze-M upper stage also includes a lower adapter that connects the stage with the payload fairing and the launch vehicle and is released in flight together with the third stage booster.

Major Breeze-M systems are:

• propulsion (with a hydraulic engine swing system);
• control;
• thermal conditioning;
• onboard measurement.

The 14D30 liquid propellant sustainer engine is mounted in a recess provided in the fuel tank of the core section. The engine can relight many times during flight. Low thrust liquid propellant engines use the same propellant as the main engine. These engines also control orientation and stabilization during unpowered flight and serve to settle the propellant in tanks as required for restarting the sustainer engine.

Installed in the equipment bay on top of the core section, the inertial control system is intended to control the Breeze-M and its on-board systems during flight. The Breeze-M upper stage accommodates the power supply system and avionics used for telemetry data reception and trajectory measurements.

Breeze-M upper stage based on structural materials with enhanced strength and mass characteristics, resulting from the Proton/Breeze-M third modification that includes:

• a lightweight power supply of 300 Ah;
• a lightweight power distribution unit;
• high-pressure tanks fueled alternately.

The launch complex is designed to prepare for launch and launch rockets Proton-K and Proton-M with the various space reentry vehicles.

Launch Complex consists of two launch pads, integrated communications network, and the total for both sites of the complex structures that provide each of these compressed gases, water, electricity, refrigerants for temperature of the fuel components and spacecraft. Technological equipment of the launch complex delivers a rocket to space head part from the technical to the launch site, setting it on the starting device, an electric vehicle checks, fueling and launch vehicle upper stage with propellant components and compressed gases, a set of ready propulsion and rocket launches.

Building a launch pad provides sufficient autonomy of each launch pad.

Drive and launch pad, all the processes of preparation for the launch and missile launch vehicle designed with maximum safety of personnel and high environmental during the operation.

The composition of technological equipment of the launch complex consists of the following systems and tools:

• transport and the loading and starting equipment;
• facilities raketynositelya and the space head part;
• refueling facilities;
• automated control of technological ground equipment;
• means of temperature control;
• means of neutralizing the fumes and spills of rocket fuel components;
• A system of measurement;
• gas control systems;
• a system of fire protection technology;
• ground special current supply system;
• technical systems.

The basic structure of the launch complex:

• launching facilities;
• command posts;
