Russia to build new generation space surveillance systems


Russian Defense Ministry will construct more than ten complexes of new-generation space surveillance systems, increasing the precision of space observation, the ministry said in a press release Thursday.

This would “considerably increase the information capabilities of Russian space surveillance, expand the range of controlled orbits and reduce the minimum size of space objects detected by 2-3 times,” the press release said.

The construction of the new space surveillance systems is taking place in Moscow, Kaliningrad, Altai and Primorsky regions, according to the ministry.
