A resident of the “Skolkovo” fund space technology cluster – “Azmerit” – plans to begin batch production of compact star sensors in the first half of 2016, CEO of “Azmerit” Marat Abubekerov told RIA Novosti at the International Aviation and Space Salon MAKS-2015.

“In June 2015, a prototype of a compact star sensor for spacecraft was created. The prototype is currently undergoing ground tests. Mass production is scheduled to begin in the first half of 2016”, – he said.

Abubekerov reminded that in Russia, unlike many Western countries, development and production of compact star sensors weighing 100-200 grams and having dimensions of 5-10 centimeters that can be installed at the nano- and micro-satellites, do not virtually exist.

The first Russian promising “Obzor-R” Earth remote sensing complex, scheduled to be launched in 2018, will receive a unique highly detailed locator, CEO of Samara-based Space Rocket Center “Progress” Alexander Kirilin told RIA Novosti.

A prototype of the “Obzor-R” promising spacecraft will be presented at the international aerospace show MAKS-2015 at a scale of 1:10.

According to technical characteristics, the term of active existence of the “Obzor-R” spacecraft will amount to 5 years. It is planned to be launched on the “Soyuz-2.1a” rocket.

The device will complete tasks of various ministries and departments of the Russian Federation: mapping, monitoring of natural and man-made emergencies, identifying potentially dangerous geological processes, mineral exploration, and many others. It will be able to conduct remote sensing of the Earth at the time when clouds or nighttime make it difficult or impossible optoelectronic devices to operate.

Topographic Division of the Eastern Military District to get new mobile digital topographic system


The topographic units of the Eastern Military District stationed in the Republic of Buryatia will get new mobile digital topographic system in the near future. System modules are mounted on a truck chassis “Ural” and are equipped with modern high-tech equipment, the press service of the Eastern Military District informed.

New topographical systems allow storage, control and distribution to the consumer digital terrain information on CDs, quickly create and update GIS documents in digital and analog form.

In addition, the mobile digital topographic system can analyze and assess the area in respect of surveying, create digital orthophotos, topographic maps to print, create spatial terrain model, to display a 3D model on the screen of collective use.
