Russian satellite unusual close approach


Russian satellite unusual close approach

Aldoria alterts satellite operator

In a recent operation, Aldoria detected a sudden close approach by the Russian Luch Olymp K-2 (Luch-2) to a satellite positioned in geostationary orbit (GEO). This manoeuvre occurred on April 12, around 35,780 km in altitude, highlighting the increasing complexity of space activities. Luch Olymp 2, known for its unusual manoeuvres was predicted, by Aldoria, to closely approach the satellite prior to the observed manoeuvre.

The original Luch-1, launched in 2014, was known for similar abnormal behaviour, creating a heightened sense of vigilance within the space community. Luch-2, like its predecessor, has a history of unusual manoeuvring near other satellites in geostationary orbit, which has also generated suspicions regarding its mission.

Aldoria offers a range of monitoring solutions designed to meet the needs of satellite operators. Aldoria’s manoeuvre detection and threat assessment services provide comprehensive analysis and timely warnings of potential risks to space assets. Today, this capability is fundamental to securing critical space infrastructures and enabling informed decision-making. Thanks to its exclusive network of six observation stations, Aldoria detects around 10 manoeuvres per object per month for 25,000 objects, enabling operators to proactively deal with threats and approaches, guaranteeing mission longevity and continuity.

The stakes are high: protecting public and private assets in orbit that service fundamental economies is a necessity. As satellite constellations proliferate, so does the risk of collisions, amplifying the demand for Space Situational Awareness (SSA) services. The SSA market is expected to generate $600 million in revenue by 2030 (NSR 2024) driven by the need to manage the growing number of satellites, mitigate collision risks and protect satellites from intentional threats.

The visual shows Aldoria’s optical tracking of Luch-2, passing by the satellite in GEO.
