The Russian Space Troops warning system has had no false alarms for the time of its use, Lt.-Gen. Vladimir Popovkin, the Commander of the Russian Space Troops, reported to Russian and French Presidents Vladimir Putin and Jacques Chirac.
He also said the outer space monitoring system used by Russia "monitors the state of domestic and foreign spacecraft, because it's necessary to know the whole situation in outer space." The commander said the existing system makes it possible to receive "objective and full information" on space objects, define the trajectory of their flight and establish what state they belong to.
Lt.-Gen. Popovkin said about 100 Russian space apparatuses work in different orbits.
