The village Galenki October district is a unique facility in the Far East — Separate Command and Measurement Complex Forces Aerospace Defense, armed with a unique system that is complex, "Quantum-D" and its antenna system P-2500 is one of the largest in Russia as well as command-and-measurement system "Quantum-P", equipped with an antenna F-30C. The system works with the ISS. It is with Galenok in 2001 has been commanded by flooding the space station "Mir". In 1961, this part also provided a space flight of the first man.
April 12, the whole world in the 52 th time to celebrate the day of the first manned flight to the stars. On the eve of a significant date I have been able to visit a separate command-and-measurement system forces air and space defense of the Russian Federation in the village Galenki and spend a day with the military, which are year-round stand guard over the sky of our country.
At the entrance to the village Galenki, forcibly catches the eye, titanic size, receiving and transmitting antenna complex P-2500 "Quantum-D." From there I started to explore this Okiku aerospace defense forces of the Russian Federation
Antenna S-2500 (RT-70) was established in 1985 to serve on the tracking station for deep space in preparation for the implementation of the "Vega". A similar antenna was built in Yalta. Ussuriyskaya tracking station with antenna M-2500 provides control Russian spacecraft programs "Vega", "Phobos", "Astron", "pomegranate". Tracking station operated in test mode in the range of 3.5 cm with an American spacecraft "Voyager" at distances of more than 6 billion kilometers.
In the period of 1991-1996. ussuriensis antenna F-2500 was used as the telescope in the European and American interferometric networks very long baseline (including experiment "Crustal Dynamics").
By passing the T-2500, a separate command and test system incorporates a variety of radio and optical-laser means: The complex "Saturn-MSD", created in 1971. Includes two antennas M-200P (TR) with a diameter of 25 meters, "P-400P" with a diameter of 32 meters (reception), and an antenna with a diameter of 8 meters
The antenna on the P-2500 rise on the elevator that goes up to the mobile base of the "saucer"
And then walk up the stairs, go up to the mirror itself.
The diameter of the primary mirror antenna complex — 70 meters, it is, for example, is twice the Vladivostok Stadium "Avangard".Photo clickability
The complex is part of the Main Space Test Center of the Ministry of Defense of Russia is the test
Troops of the establishment of air and space defense and a control body that manages the activities of testing organizations ivoinskih parts. For many years he worked here Gherman Stepanovich Titov, a Soviet cosmonaut and the second person in the world who has made orbital space flight. In 2001, the center named after him.
In 1961, this part also provided a space flight of the first man.
I was given a rare opportunity to visit and take pictures with the height of the counter-reflector antenna

The scale of amazing!
After 15 minutes, scheduled to begin a session with the deep space. Hastily leaving the mirror.
Inside is a few hardware rooms, each of them hard at work
On the "Quantum-D" did the work on the project "Phobos-1" and "Phobos-2"

Then move on to no less interesting object Okiku-command and Quantum Measurement System-II,
antenna fitted T-30S.Obekt known fact that it is on it with the command-measuring station "Quantum-P" was given to the last team to flood the station "Mir". Now "Quantum-P" is working with the International Space Station on a daily basis to exchange information with "colleagues" from around the world.

The station Galenkov, halted after restructuring and restored only in 2006, now works with virtually the Soviet scale — P-2500 radio telescope with an antenna can control the "deep space" — objects outside the solar system, and serves as a constant reminder that the Primorye also contributed to the formation of the USSR as a great space power and the development of world space.
