Galyonki village in the Russian Far East is the location of a unique object – a self-contained command-and-measurement complex of the Russian aerospace defence forces provided with a system “Kvant-D” – its antenna P-2500 is one of the largest in Russia, and system “Kvant-P” equipped with antenna P-30S. The system cooperates with the ISS. It was Galyonok that sent the signal for flooding the international space station “Mir”. And in 1961 this very center was providing the flight of the first man to space.
