In 2005, the aerospace industry in conjunction with the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) refined the Qualification and Quality Requirements for Space Solar Panels and Space Solar Cells into Standards. This action was a joint effort that included many prominent companies and organizations including:
• Complete suitcase system including 39 cm dish and receiver - all in one portable compact case• Receive up to 250 channels including HD channels
• USB port for recording onto an external hard drive (not included)• Includes low noise LNB, satellite cable and SCART cable • 10 m cable with connectors and various mounts• 12/230 V satellite receiver • Full fitting and installation instructions• DiSEqC , , USALS• 4:3 standard screen or 16:9 widescreen• 8 programmable favourite lists• EPG (Electronic Programme Guide)• Base equipped with suction mounts for mounting on a smooth surface• Steel bracket for vertical mounting support• Dimensions: 150 x 405 x 500 mm• Weight (boxed): kg Receive digital satellite programmes without depending on a fixed mounted satellite aerial. The mobile aerial allows you to receive signals at different places such as on a camping site. You can also connect the receiver to a fixed installed satellite aerial. The most common broadcasting stations are pre-programmed to the ASTRA, Hotbird, Sirius, Hispasat and Hellasat satellites.
Despite the 1983 unilateral moratorium on orbital satellite intercepts, the USSR continued the development of follow-on anti-satellite systems. In April 1991, a modified version of the anti-satellite system, known as IS-MU, had been declared operational. It still used Tsyklon-2 rocket as a launch vehicle, but carried an upgraded anti-satellite, which was designated 14F10. The system was reportedly capable of intercepting its targets before the killer satellite would complete its first orbit around the planet, thus leaving a potential adversary less time for tracking the interceptor and implementing evasive maneuvers. The IS-MU system officially remained in operation until August 1993, however even after the formal decommissioning of the network, its ground segment was maintained in working condition, including the 224-B facility for command calculations and measurements and the launch complex at Site 90 in Baikonur , also known as facility 334-B. Russian officials also stressed that a sister system of naval surveillance employing similar facilities -- 224-Sh and 334-Sh -- had always remained operational.
