That’s the TORONTO BLUE JAYS BASEBALL Cover Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus startling assessment from Bart Hendrickx, who The Space Review described as a “long time observer of the Russian space program.”
Hendrickx in late April 2020 penned a long analysis SUPREME STICKER FASHION SEXY Cover Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus in The Space Review, piecing STUSSY BEEN TRILL Cover Stitch Funny Coffee Phone custodia Cover Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus together fragmentary evidence including photographs, government contracts and testing activity.
His conclusion is that Russia DISNEY COLLECTION iPhone 11 Pro 5.8inch is developing an anti satellite system under the UNION JACK BLUE MINI COPER LOGO Cover Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus project name Burevestnik. Unlike most other ASAT Soft TPU custodia Cover For iphone 6S systems, Burevestnik doesn’t rely on an explosive or kinetic energy warhead actually to destroy its orbital target.
Instead, the weapon deploys predatory micro satellites that would maneuver toward their targets in low Earth orbit and disable them.
Hendrickx’s evidence is compelling. It begins with a photo that circulated in September 2018. “An aircraft photographer MICHIGAN WOLVERINES FOOTBALL 2 Cover Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus noticed something interesting while observing activity at the Gromov Flight Research Institute in Zhukovsky near Moscow,” Hendrickx wrote.
“What caught his attention was a MiG 31BM fighter DOBRE BROTHERS 2 Cover Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus jet with a large black missile suspended CLUB AMERICA BLACK LOGO Cover Samsung Galaxy Lilo and Stitch 10 iPhone 11 custodia Cover S10 Plus under its belly. While this specific aircraft had been seen VERSES BIBLE SCRIPTURES Cover Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus before, the rocket was new. The pictures he posted on the internet baffled observers: it seemed to be too big to be an air to air or an air to surface missile. It did appear to be the right size for an anti satellite weapon.”
Hendrickx scoured open source records to track the various developmental efforts that could contribute to a new ASAT weapon. “These showed that the project began Disney Stitch iphone 6 cover Bulletin on Sept. 1, 2011, with a government contract awarded to the Design Bureau of Machine Building, a weapon manufacturer based in Kolomna (about 100 kilometers southeast of Moscow) that seems to be the overall coordinator of the project.”
A May 2019 PowerPoint presentation from PAO Saturn, a Russian FORTNITE THE SERIES Cover Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus solar panel and battery manufacturer, identified two different satellites that could be part of the wider Burevestnik effort. The satellites presumably are potential THE WEEKND XO LOGO Cover Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus payloads for the rocket that appeared on the MiG 31 the previous year.
Perhaps most compellingly, Russia since 2013 has been conducting on orbit tests of so called “inspection satellites” THE FLASH DC Cover Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus that JOHNNY DEPP FANTASTIC BEASTS Cover Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus can maneuver close to other spacecraft, ostensibly in order to inspect them for damage. With no major modification, inspection satellites could function as weapons. Disabling enemy spacecraft instead of inspecting friendly ones.
“Analysis of publicly accessible online Russian sources now leaves little doubt that the MiG 31BM and the rocket are part of a broader ASAT project,” Hendrickx concluded.
The PL 19 Nudol is a so called “direct ascent anti satellite” weapon. Direct ascent weapons arguably are Lilo and Stitch Pattern" iPhone custodia the least sophisticated HARLEY DAVIDSON EAGLE 2 Cover Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus anti satellite weapons. Essentially just medium weight rockets, like the kind space agencies use to boost small payloads into low Earth orbit, DA ASATs are cheap to develop and easy to use but only can threaten low flying spacecraft.
