 Russian experts reveal the combat effectiveness of Russian laser weapons: it can blind other satellites


Russian peresvert laser system

Murahovski made the comments in response to an earlier article on the peresvert laser system published on the US space review website. The difference between dazzle and blindness is explained in the article of American media. Dazzle is a temporary visual obstacle caused by the use of strong light to optical and electronic optical equipment. Blindness is a permanent injury to optical and electronic optical equipment.

The mission of the peresvert laser system is to blind potential adversaries satellites, murahovski said. Such a laser system with such a power level can make the satellite navigation system fail for a short time. The size of the laser generator of the pereshwaite system determines that it has this basic function, but it can not be ruled out. After being improved, it can make the satellite completely useless.

According to the expert, dazzle refers to exceeding the sensitivity threshold of on-board optical equipment. If it needs to be scrapped, i.e. blinding, the optical equipment itself needs to be damaged, which requires a higher power laser.

On March 1, 2018, when Russian President Vladimir Putin delivered his state of the Union address to the federal conference, he first made public a series of new Russian weapons, including the peresvert laser system. Later, Russian Defense Minister General Shoigu said that on December 1, 2018, the peresvert system began to carry out experimental combat duty tasks in the Russian army on December 1, 2018. The chief of the general staff of the Russian armed forces, grasimov, pointed out that in December 2019, the peresvert system began to take on the accompanying cover task of the Russian mobile air defense missile system.
