Abstract:

On 4 October, 1957, the Soviet people, with the launching of the first earth satellite, opened a new epoch in the history of human progress - the epoch of the storming of limitless cosmic space. In a short time our country achieved great successes in the interest of all peoples of our planet. There is reason to say that in the future the investigation of space will proceed at accelerating tempos. Mankind can enter the attack on space only by concentrating all knowledge and experience of the preceding development of society at a high level. Among other new types of technology in conquering space, an important role goes to infrared technology which, along with radio and radar engineering, can be used for observation and communication in space. Also, as considered abroad, it can be used to solve a number of military tasks, for example for early detection of ballistic rockets, for guidance, and, in the future, for the destruction of military objects. The description of the use of infrared technology in space was written from the data of the domestic and foreign open press. The book is intended for the officer staff of our armed forces. Author
