U.S. Missiles Deployed Near China Send a Message



By MARK THOMPSON / WASHINGTON –

If China's satellites and spies were working properly, there was a flood of unsettling intelligence flowing into the Beijing headquarters of the Chinese Navy last week. A new class of U.S. super weapon had suddenly surfaced nearby. It was an Ohio-class submarine, which for decades carried only nuclear missiles targeted against the Soviet Union, and then Russia. But this one was different: for nearly three years, the U.S. Navy has been dispatching modified "boomers" to who knows where (they do travel underwater, after all). Four of the 18 ballistic-missile subs no longer carry nuclear-tipped Trident missiles. Instead, they now hold up to 154 Tomahawk cruise missiles, capable of hitting anything within 1,000 miles with non-nuclear warheads.
Their capability makes watching these particular submarines especially interesting. The 14 Trident-carrying subs are useful in the unlikely event of a nuclear Armageddon, and Russia remains their prime target. But the Tomahawk-outfitted quartet carries a weapon that the U.S. military has used repeatedly against targets in Afghanistan, Bosnia, Iraq and Sudan. (See pictures of the U.S. military in the Pacific.)

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

That's why alarm bells would have sounded in Beijing June 28 when the Tomahawk-laden 560-foot USS Ohio popped up in the Philippines' Subic Bay. More alarms likely were sounded when the USS Michigan arrived in Pusan, South Korea, the same day. And the klaxons would have maxed out as the USS Florida surfaced the same day at the joint U.S.-British naval base at Diego Garcia, a flyspeck of an island in the Indian Ocean. The Chinese military awoke to find as many as 462 additional Tomahawks deployed by the U.S. in its neighborhood. "There's been a decision to bolster our forces in the Pacific," says Bonnie Glaser, a China expert at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington. "There is no doubt that China will stand up and take notice."

U.S. officials deny any message is being directed at Beijing, saying the Tomahawk triple-play was a coincidence. But they did make sure news of the new deployments appeared in the Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post - on July 4, no less. The Chinese took notice quietly. "At present, common aspirations of countries in the Asian and Pacific regions are seeking for peace, stability and regional security," Wang Baodong, spokesman for the Chinese Embassy in Washington, said Wednesday. "We hope the relevant U.S. military activities will serve for the regional peace, stability and security, and not the contrary." (See pictures of the most expensive military planes.)

Last month, the Navy had announced that all four of the Tomahawk Tridents were operationally deployed away from their home ports for the first time. Each vessel packs "the firepower of multiple surface ships," says Capt. Tracy Howard, commander, Submarine Squadron 16 in Kings Bay, Ga., and can "respond to diverse threats on short notice."

The move forms part of a policy by the U.S. government to shift firepower from the Atlantic to the Pacific theater, which Washington sees as the military focus of the 21st Century. Reduced tensions since the end of the Cold War has seen the U.S. scale back its deployment of nuclear weapons, allowing the Navy to reduce its Trident fleet from 18 to 14. (Why 14 subs, as well as bombers and land-based missiles carrying nuclear weapons, are still required to deal with the Russian threat is a topic for another day.) (Read "Obama Shelves U.S. Missile Shield: The Winners and Losers.")
Sure, the Navy could have retired the four additional subs and saved the Pentagon some money, but that's not how bureaucracies operate. Instead, it spent about $4 billion replacing the Tridents with Tomahawks and making room for 60 special-ops troops to live aboard each sub and operate stealthily around the globe. "We're there for weeks, we have the situational awareness of being there, of being part of the environment," Navy Rear Adm. Mark Kenny explained after the first Tomahawk Trident set sail in 2008. "We can detect, classify and locate targets and, if need be, hit them from the same platform."

The submarines aren't the only new potential issue of concern for the Chinese. Two major military exercises involving the U.S. and its allies in the region are now underway. More than three dozen naval ships and subs began participating in the "Rim of the Pacific" war games off Hawaii on Wednesday. Some 20,000 personnel from 14 nations are involved in the biennial exercise which includes missile exercises and the sinking of three abandoned vessels playing the role of enemy ships. Nations joining the U.S. in what is billed as the world's largest-ever naval war game are Australia, Canada, Chile, Colombia, France, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Netherlands, Peru, Singapore and Thailand. Closer to China, CARAT 2010 - for Cooperation Afloat Readiness and Training - just got underway off Singapore. The operation involves 17,000 personnel and 73 ships from the U.S., Singapore, Bangladesh, Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines and Thailand. (Read "Hu's Visit: Finding a Way Forward on U.S.-China Relations.")
China is absent from both exercises, and that's no oversight. Many nations in the eastern Pacific, including Australia, Japan, Indonesia, South Korea and Vietnam, have been encouraging the U.S. to push back against what they see as China's increasingly aggressive actions in the South China Sea. And the U.S. military remains concerned over China's growing missile force - now more than 1,000 - near the Taiwan Strait. The Tomahawks' arrival "is part of a larger effort to bolster our capabilities in the region," Glaser says. "It sends a signal that nobody should rule out our determination to be the balancer in the region that many countries there want us to be." No doubt Beijing got the signal.

MoD unveils unmanned fighter jet 'of the future'

Tue Jul 13, 5:39 am ET

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

LONDON (AFP) – An unmanned jet capable of striking long-range targets has been dubbed the "combat aircraft of the future" by the Ministry of Defence.

The Taranis -- named after the Celtic god of thunder -- was unveiled at a ceremony at BAE Systems in Warton, Lancashire, on Monday.

The £142.5 million prototype is the size of a light aircraft and has been equipped with stealth technology to make it virtually undetectable.

In a press release, the MoD described the Taranis as "a prototype unmanned combat aircraft of the future."

It is built to carry out intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions while its crew stays safely on the ground and can control the aircraft from anywhere in the world.

The unmanned fighter jet can also carry bombs and missiles and, if the trials prove successful, the MoD said it should "ultimately be capable of striking targets at long range, even in another continent."

The current generation of propeller-driven drones -- such as the Predator and Reaper -- are capable of carrying missiles, but these unmanned planes can only be used in areas where the military has air dominance, such as Iraq and Afghanistan.
The first flight trials are due to start next year.

"Taranis is a truly trailblazing project," said Minister for International Security Strategy Gerald Howarth.

"The first of its kind in the UK, it reflects the best of our nation's advanced design and technology skills and is a leading programme on the global stage."

The Taranis was created by the MOD in partnership with BAE Systems, Rolls-Royce, QinetiQ and GE Aviation.

"Taranis has been three-and-a-half years in the making and is the product of more than a million man-hours," said Nigel Whitehead, group managing director of BAE Systems' Programmes and Support business.

"It represents a significant step forward in this country's fast-jet capability.
"This technology is key to sustaining a strong industrial base and to maintain the UK's leading position as a centre for engineering excellence and innovation."

Why Clinton Cares So Much about an Asian Island Chain

Max Fisher

Fri Jul 23, 9:58 am ET


WASHINGTON, DC – Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is getting the U.S. involved in a complex, international dispute over a chain of islands in the South China Sea. China and nearby Asian states have long made competing claims as to who controls the strategically located islands. Speaking at a meeting of the Association of Southeast Asian Nation in Hanoi, Vietnam, Clinton said that the U.S. has a "national interest" in resolving the issue peacefully. Here's what's going on, why it matters, and what could happen next, according to key journalists and experts.

Blenheim signed up for $5bn Malaysian defence offset deal

Blenheim Capital Partners has been hired by the Malaysian government to finance and develop a $5bn ($3.3bn) defence and technology centre to offset hundreds of millions of dollars owed to the country from defence deals.

The outstanding defence offset obligations to Malaysia already mount up to $200m, and with the country planning to spend between $5bn and $7bn updating planes, ships and armoured vehicles over five years from 2011, there will be many more.

Malaysia currently asks for offsets of at least 50pc of the value of a defence contract, according to Grant Rogan, chief executive of Blenheim.

Defence offsets are an agreement to invest in the buyer nation’s economy to create a certain amount of wealth, in return for the purchase of equipment. It can take the form of developing the industrial base by building part of the kit in question in-country, or increasingly by attracting investment from unrelated industries to stimulate economic growth.

Grant Rogan, the chief executive of Blenheim, says there are around $100bn of outstanding offset obligations around the world, and another $150bn could be created in the next five years alone. US and European defence companies are chasing exports as growth slows at home.

London-based Blenheim, which was set up as joint venture with Barclays Capital in 1996 before a management buyout last year, will work with a local partner to raise long-term loans to build the Malaysia Defence and Security Technology Park and find companies to set up there.

Some of the first customers are likely to be firms which have sold expensive military kit to Malaysia in the past, and those that plan to do so in the future.

Those include EADS, which has sold A400M transport planes to Malaysia, Thales, AgustaWestland and the Russian fighter plane builder Sukhoi.

Malaysian officials view the technology park as a way of developing the country as a defence and security manufacturing hub for the south-east Asian region.

Blenheim has previously set up projects which dispensed of $12bn of obligations for defence companies offset projects in the Kuwait, in the form of an aircraft leasing business, and a five-star beach resort in Saudi Arabia, among others.

good sharing bro, walaupun outdated tapi byk input... Very Happy

p/s : kawe extract report m'sia :
Malaysia’s military has had to make due with limited funding in the face of several
naval challenges. One of the navy’s largest ships, the Sri Inderapura, an 8,500-ton
(full load) tank-landing ship, suffered a devastating fire on 8 October 2009. Because
of her age, the former U.S. Navy Newport-class LST will not be repaired,
and officials are looking for a replacement vessel to be acquired in the near future.
To assist Malaysia with regional antipiracy and counterterrorism efforts, the
United States has provided the country with coastal and maritime defense radars.
Despite piracy problems in its own waters, Malaysia remained a player in antipiracy
operations off the Somali coast as well, operating multi-purpose support
ships, including Sri Indera Sakti, as part of the international coalition. The navy’s
MEKO-100 RMN–class patrol ships have been experiencing delays, although first
of the class Kedah, second unit Pahang, and third ship Perak have
now been accepted into service while a sixth and
final ship of the class was launched in 2009.
The navy’s two Kasturiclass frigates are being
modernized under a 2009 program that will take 28 months per ship
to complete. Improvements to the vessels include upgraded radars and a modernized armament fit.
Malaysia has high expectations for its fledgling submarine force and aims to establish
a 425-man cadre of personnel to man and operate its two new Scorpèneclass
submarines. The first unit, Tunku Abdul Rahman, arrived from France in
September 2009, with sister sub Tun Razak expected to become operational in 2010.

Criticism as Two Indonesian Soldiers Flee Lebanese, Israeli Battle in Taxi

August 05, 2010

Beirut, Lebanon. Lebanese media have lashed out at the UN Interim Force, which includes Indonesian soldiers, in Lebanon, calling it an “impotent” bystander after a deadly border skirmish between Lebanese and Israeli forces.

“The impotent international forces beat a retreat, left the place of combat and watched the unfolding events from afar,” said the daily As-Safir, which is close to the Shiite movement Hezbollah.

UNIFIL had asked its soldiers only to “make a show of arms ... against enemy forces,” the newspaper said on Wednesday. It had “encouraged [the enemy] with its reticence, without effectively intervening to prevent the Israeli aggression,” the newspaper alleged on Wednesday.

Lebanese and Israeli troops traded deadly fire on their tense border on Tuesday in the worst clash since the 2006 war between the Jewish state and the Shiite Hezbollah. Two Lebanese soldiers, a Lebanese journalist and a senior Israeli officer were killed.

The Al-Anwar daily mocked the multinational force, saying it “fulfills its role perfectly” when things are calm.

“But ... when confrontations flare it is only a simple spectator, which contacts the two parties to try to restore calm and then submits a report to the Security Council,” the newspaper said.

Daily An-Nahar daily said: “The question is, what to do if the incident is repeated ... in particular regarding the claimed role of UNIFIL.”

“Why did UNIFIL not help the army, at least by offering first aid?” it questioned, citing senior sources involved in calming the border tension.

It said an organization such as UNIFIL was “obliged to deal with the evacuation of casualties.”

On Tuesday, Hezbollah-run Al-Manar television aired images of two Indonesian soldiers, presumably from UNIFIL, leaving the site of the skirmish in a shared taxi.

New TV, which also sympathizes with Hezbollah, spoke of the “escape” of UNIFIL soldiers.

The UN force urged “maximum restraint” following the clashes along the so-called Blue Line, a UN-drawn border.

The acting force commander, Brigadier General Santi Bonfanti, flew to the site of the clashes and personally called on both parties to “stop firing in all the area.”

UNIFIL has some 13,000 troops from various countries stationed in southern Lebanon.

The force, which was set up in 1978 to monitor the border between Israel and southern Lebanon, was considerably beefed up in the wake of the 2006 war between Hezbollah and Israel.

ABOARD THE USS GEORGE WASHINGTON – Nothing projects U.S. global air and sea power more vividly than supercarriers. Bristling with fighter jets that can reach deep into even landlocked trouble zones, America's virtually invincible carrier fleet has long enforced its dominance of the high seas.

China may soon put an end to that.

U.S. naval planners are scrambling to deal with what analysts say is a game-changing weapon being developed by China — an unprecedented carrier-killing missile called the Dong Feng 21D that could be launched from land with enough accuracy to penetrate the defenses of even the most advanced moving aircraft carrier at a distance of more than 1,500 kilometers (900 miles).

EDITOR'S NOTE — The USS George Washington supercarrier recently deployed off North Korea in a high-profile show of U.S. sea power. AP Tokyo News Editor Eric Talmadge was aboard the carrier, and filed this report.

___

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Analysts say final testing of the missile could come as soon as the end of this year, though questions remain about how fast China will be able to perfect its accuracy to the level needed to threaten a moving carrier at sea.

The weapon, a version of which was displayed last year in a Chinese military parade, could revolutionize China's role in the Pacific balance of power, seriously weakening Washington's ability to intervene in any potential conflict over Taiwan or North Korea. It could also deny U.S. ships safe access to international waters near China's 11,200-mile (18,000-kilometer) -long coastline.

While a nuclear bomb could theoretically sink a carrier, assuming its user was willing to raise the stakes to atomic levels, the conventionally-armed Dong Feng 21D's uniqueness is in its ability to hit a powerfully defended moving target with pin-point precision.

The Chinese Defense Ministry did not immediately respond to the AP's request for a comment.

Funded by annual double-digit increases in the defense budget for almost every year of the past two decades, the Chinese navy has become Asia's largest and has expanded beyond its traditional mission of retaking Taiwan to push its sphere of influence deeper into the Pacific and protect vital maritime trade routes.

"The Navy has long had to fear carrier-killing capabilities," said Patrick Cronin, senior director of the Asia-Pacific Security Program at the nonpartisan, Washington-based Center for a New American Security. "The emerging Chinese antiship missile capability, and in particular the DF 21D, represents the first post-Cold War capability that is both potentially capable of stopping our naval power projection and deliberately designed for that purpose."

Setting the stage for a possible conflict, Beijing has grown increasingly vocal in its demands for the U.S. to stay away from the wide swaths of ocean — covering much of the Yellow, East and South China seas — where it claims exclusivity.

It strongly opposed plans to hold U.S.-South Korean war games in the Yellow Sea off the northeastern Chinese coast, saying the participation of the USS George Washington supercarrier, with its 1,092-foot (333-meter) flight deck and 6,250 personnel, would be a provocation because it put Beijing within striking range of U.S. F-18 warplanes.

The carrier instead took part in maneuvers held farther away in the Sea of Japan.

U.S. officials deny Chinese pressure kept it away, and say they will not be told by Beijing where they can operate.

"We reserve the right to exercise in international waters anywhere in the world," Rear Adm. Daniel Cloyd, who headed the U.S. side of the exercises, said aboard the carrier during the maneuvers, which ended last week.

But the new missile, if able to evade the defenses of a carrier and of the vessels sailing with it, could undermine that policy.

"China can reach out and hit the U.S. well before the U.S. can get close enough to the mainland to hit back," said Toshi Yoshihara, an associate professor at the U.S. Naval War College. He said U.S. ships have only twice been that vulnerable — against Japan in World War II and against Soviet bombers in the Cold War.

Carrier-killing missiles "could have an enduring psychological effect on U.S. policymakers," he e-mailed to The AP. "It underscores more broadly that the U.S. Navy no longer rules the waves as it has since the end of World War II. The stark reality is that sea control cannot be taken for granted anymore."

Yoshihara said the weapon is causing considerable consternation in Washington, though — with attention focused on land wars in Afghanistan and Iraq — its implications haven't been widely discussed in public.

Analysts note that while much has been made of China's efforts to ready a carrier fleet of its own, it would likely take decades to catch U.S. carrier crews' level of expertise, training and experience.

But Beijing does not need to match the U.S. carrier for carrier. The Dong Feng 21D, smarter, and vastly cheaper, could successfully attack a U.S. carrier, or at least deter it from getting too close.

U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates warned of the threat in a speech last September at the Air Force Association Convention.

"When considering the military-modernization programs of countries like China, we should be concerned less with their potential ability to challenge the U.S. symmetrically — fighter to fighter or ship to ship — and more with their ability to disrupt our freedom of movement and narrow our strategic options," he said.

Gates said China's investments in cyber and anti-satellite warfare, anti-air and anti-ship weaponry, along with ballistic missiles, "could threaten America's primary way to project power" through its forward air bases and carrier strike groups.

The Pentagon has been worried for years about China getting an anti-ship ballistic missile. The Pentagon considers such a missile an "anti-access," weapon, meaning that it could deny others access to certain areas.

The Air Force's top surveillance and intelligence officer, Lt. Gen. David Deptula, told reporters this week that China's effort to increase anti-access capability is part of a worrisome trend.

He did not single out the DF 21D, but said: "While we might not fight the Chinese, we may end up in situations where we'll certainly be opposing the equipment that they build and sell around the world."

Questions remain over when — and if — China will perfect the technology; hitting a moving carrier is no mean feat, requiring state-of-the-art guidance systems, and some experts believe it will take China a decade or so to field a reliable threat. Others, however, say final tests of the missile could come in the next year or two.

Former Navy commander James Kraska, a professor of international law and sea power at the U.S. Naval War College, recently wrote a controversial article in the magazine Orbis outlining a hypothetical scenario set just five years from now in which a Deng Feng 21D missile with a penetrator warhead sinks the USS George Washington.

That would usher in a "new epoch of international order in which Beijing emerges to displace the United States."

While China's Defense Ministry never comments on new weapons before they become operational, the DF 21D — which would travel at 10 times the speed of sound and carry conventional payloads — has been much discussed by military buffs online.

A pseudonymous article posted on Xinhuanet, website of China's official news agency, imagines the U.S. dispatching the George Washington to aid Taiwan against a Chinese attack.

The Chinese would respond with three salvos of DF 21D, the first of which would pierce the hull, start fires and shut down flight operations, the article says. The second would knock out its engines and be accompanied by air attacks. The third wave, the article says, would "send the George Washington to the bottom of the ocean."

Macam mana plak boleh ada kaitan dengan Malaysia???

Shocked

Pasukan Polis Aceh besar tuju ke lokasi bangkai pesawat

JAKARTA 6 Ogos - Pasukan Polis dari Aceh Besar sudah memasuki hutan sejak empat hari lalu bagi mencari bangkai pesawat yang dikatakan dikesan di kawasan pergunungan Aceh Besar baru-baru ini, yang dikaitkan dengan pesawat dari Malaysia yang hilang di Aceh lebih 20 tahun lepas.

Pegawai Perhubungan Awam Polis Aceh, Pesuruhjaya Kanan, Farid Ahmad Saleh berkata, pasukan mencari itu menuju lokasi di Pergunungan Bukit Barisan, namun pihaknya belum dapat memberi kepastian sama ada pesawat itu sememangnya dari Malaysia atau tidak dan sama ada terdapat kerangka manusia di dalamnya.

Maklumat yang diterima berhubung penemuan bangkai pesawat itu bercanggah daripada data yang ada, termasuk lokasi ia ditemui, yang sebelum ini dikatakan di Pergunungan Leuser di wilayah Aceh Tenggara.

Ada maklumat juga bahawa ia bangkai pesawat kecil pengangkut logistik yang mungkin terhempas pada tahun 2006, namun semua maklumat itu belum dapat dipastikan sehingga pasukan mencari memberi laporannya.

"Perjalanan ke sana memakan waktu sekitar tiga hari perjalanan darat dan sampai saat ini belum kembali lagi. Kawasan itu juga sukar mendapat isyarat telekomunikasi sehingga kami tidak ada komunikasi apapun dengan pasukan di lapangan," katanya.

Polis melancarkan usaha mencari lokasi itu setelah ada laporan bahawa penduduk tempatan yang mencari kayu di hutan berkenaan dikatakan menemui sebuah bangkai pesawat beserta kerangka manusia di dalamnya.

Polis sehingga ini belum dapat menentukan kebenaran laporan oleh penduduk tempatan itu.

Keterangan Farid hari ini turut menyangkal laporan sebelum ini yang mengatakan bangkai pesawat itu dikesan dari udara oleh polis tempatan.

Pegawai perhubungan awam itu berkata, keadaan hutan yang tebal tidak memungkinkan bangkai pesawat itu boleh dikesan dari udara, lebih-lebih lagi dalam keadaan cuaca yang agak buruk di kawasan itu pada masa ini.

Beliau juga menafikan bahawa Ketua Polis Aceh Besar Agus Susanto telah memberi maklumat seperti yang dilaporkan oleh sebuah akhbar tempatan dua hari lalu, yang turut mengaitkan pesawat dari Malaysia dengan penemuan bangkai pesawat itu.

"Saya sudah memberitahu Ketua Polis Aceh Besar, beliau membantah telah memberi kenyataan dan data seperti dalam akhbar itu dan sampai saat ini Ketua Polis Aceh Besar belum bersedia memberikan kenyataan kerana memang belum ada kejelasannya," kata beliau. - Bernama

India To Develop New Generation Main Battle Tank


MUMBAI, Aug 10 (Bernama) -- India will develop its next generation main battle tank in the coming years to strengthen the Army's armor operational capability, Xinhua news agency reported, citing an Indian newspaper report Tuesday.

The new type of main battle tank, currently termed as the Future Main Battle Tank (FMBT), will be developed by the Indian Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO), and is expected to cost about Rs 50 billion (about US$1 billion) for its development, Indian newspaper the Business Standard quoted V.K. Saraswat, the DRDO chief and Scientific Advisor to the Indian Defence Minister A.K.Antony, as saying.

Saraswat said the FMBT will have a strong fire power by operating a newly-designed heavy 120mm main gun, which could have the double purposes of firing both shells and missiles. Among them, the missiles could be used to strike the low level flying aircraft, such as armed helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft.

The FMBT's crew will get the real-time information about the battlefields including the friendly and hostile actions, and can take the simultaneous steps of the attack or defense, according to the chief.

Different from the newly-deployed indigenous main battle tank Arjun with a total weight of 60 tonnes, the next generation main battle tank will be more flexible with a total weight of 50 tonnes.

The new active armour protection system will be fitted with the FMBT to neutralise the incoming anti-tank shells or missiles for greatly improving its survivability, said Saraswat.

The chief said it may need seven to eight years for the DRDO to develop the next generation main battle tank as the project is formally approved.

In March this year, the first Indian home-made main tank Arjun, which was developed by the DRDO and received the first order of 124 from the Army in 2000, outperformed the newly-inducted Russia- made T-90 in the comparative desert trials of the western state of Rajasthan. Following this, the Indian Army ordered 124 more Arjuns.

The Indian Army is a large ground force with a million soldiers in active service. It operates several thousand main battle tanks, including T-72s, T-90s and Arjuns. However, some 2,400 T-72s are old. The Indian Army's former chief of staff Deepak Kapoor once said about 80 percent of the Indian Army's tank fleet were unfit to fight at night.

The Indian Army says the FMBT is crucial for India's future battle readiness. Over the next decade, the Indian Army's 4,000 main battle tanks need to be replaced, and will cost about Rs1,000 billion, said Saraswat.

Putin visits site of Russia's new launch centre

MOSCOW (AP): Russia will launch its manned space missions from a new centre in the Far East in 2018, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said Saturday, as the country seeks greater independence for its space programme.

Putin made the comments as he inaugurated the start of construction for the new cosmodrome at the former missile defence base of Vostochny, outside the town of Uglegorsk, some 3,600 miles (5800 kilometres) east of Moscow, and a few hundred miles away from China.

Russia currently uses the Soviet-built Baikonur launch facility in Kazakhstan for all of its manned space missions and other commercial launches as well as a smaller centre in northern Russia for military satellite launches.

Russia has a lease on Baikonur until 2050 and has paid around $115 million to Kazakhstan in rent since the agreement in 2004.

Putin stressed the "strategic" need for Moscow to have "an independent access to the space." Although Baikonur is located in a "friendly state," it is still owned by another country, he said.

Russia's prime minister said on state-run Rossiya channel that Vostochny, will host all launches of Russian-manned spacecraft beginning in 2018. Launches of first unmanned spacecraft from the new centre are expected in 2015.

Putin described the construction as "one of the biggest and ambitious projects of modern Russia" which "gives opportunity to thousands of young professionals to use their talent."

Russian Deputy Prime Minister Sergey Ivanov was quoted by Russian news agencies as saying that the first stage of the construction will take more than 24 billion rubles ($779 million).

Like Baikonur in Kazakhstan, Russia's Amur Region in the Far East, where the new centre is being built, is sparsely populated. New technologies will allow the new launch pad to be ten times smaller compared to what Baikonur occupies in the Kazakh steppe, said Russia's space agency chief Anatoly Perminov.

Windfall from oil revenues over the past years have allowed the Kremlin to spend more on Russia's space program, which had suffered in the post-Soviet economic meltdown.

Proyek Pusat Peluncuran Satelit di Biak Dengan Rusia, Tergantung Indonesia


Jakarta – Rencana kerjasama pembangunan pusat peluncuran sateli di Pulau Biak, Papua sudah sejak lama ada. Proyek kerjasama antara Indonesia dengan Rusia itu, bertahun-tahun tertunda karena terhambat soal kesepakatan antar pemerintah kedua negara menyangkut hal teknis. Namun Rusia menilai realisasinya tergantung pada pemerintah Indonesia.

Rusia siap melaksanakan proyek itu kapan saja bila perjanjian telah ditandatangani. Sekarang, semua tergantung pada pemerintah Indonesia. “Saya hanya bisa bilang kalau bola ada di tangan Indonesia. Semua tergantung pada Indonesia, kami [bahkan] siap mengimplementasikannya besok kalau perjanjian telah tercapai dan ditandatangani,” kata Ivanov di Pusat Kebudayaan Rusia, Jakarta, Kamis 6 Mei 2010.

Ivanov mengatakan, dia sudah mengunjungi Pulau Biak dan berbicara dengan pemimpin suku setempat. “Saya jelaskan bahwa implementasi proyek ini akan membuka peluang yang sangat baik bagi penduduk lokal karena mereka akan terlibat dalam pembangunan infrastruktur, mereka akan dapat pekerjaan, belajar profesi baru, dan terlebih lagi Rusia juga akan membangun sekolah dan rumah sakit di sana yang akan sangat berguna bagi penduduk lokal,” terang Ivanov.

Dipilihnya Pulau Biak sebagai lokasi proyek pusat peluncuran satelit itu karena posisi Pulau Biak sangat dekat dengan dengan garis khatulistiwa. Karena itu Rusia memandang peluncuran dari Biak dapat menghemat biaya lebih murah delapan hingga sepuluh kali lipat jika dilaksanakan di tempat lain.

Salah satu hal yang menghambat realisasi kesepakatan itu adalah jaminan perlindungan teknologi roket. Rusia merupakan anggota dari mekanisme internasional yang mengatur perlindungan teknologi roket atau rudal (Missile Technology Control Regime), sedangkan Indonesia tidak. Karena itu, dibutuhkan kesepakatan bilateral antara Indonesia dan Rusia.

Diharapkan jika proyek itu terwujud, nantinya para ahli Lembaga Penerbangan dan Antariksa Nasional (Lapan) belajar satelit dari Rusia sehingga Indonesia dapat juga menjadi negara yang berkembang di bidang antariksa.
