A statement issued by the company stated that it “plans to launch about 15 satellites into space in 2021, with the beginning of next March, by launching a Russian-made Soyuz-2.1a missile from the Baikonur space base, which will carry on board satellites for remote sensing of the Earth.” , In addition to two satellites belonging to foreign agents. “
The statement also pointed out that this year is also supposed to witness the launch of a group of Cubesat nanosatellites, developed within the framework of Space-L, the Russian space program in which the company is contributing.
According to the statement, “Russian school students will participate in the development, design and testing of satellites, after training in developing programs for satellite missions and their systems and obtaining data from these satellites to benefit from them.”
10 billion rubles
Alaa Al-Nahdi, former vice president of the Egyptian National Authority for Remote Sensing and a space science expert, said in exclusive statements to “Sky News Arabia” that Russia sends these satellites to monitor and senses the Earth from a periodically remote, as it provides remote monitoring services to any point in Russia in all weather conditions, at a rate of one image every 30 minutes. It will also be able to photograph any region of the globe at a rate once a day.
Nahdi indicated that Russia has allocated in the 2020-2022 budget about 10 billion rubles for the aforementioned satellites development project.
He added that Moscow wants to expand the use of various programs to discover space science that allows it to know the latest changes that occur on the planet Earth, in light of the star race between it and America and the countries of Europe, after this type of science caused a boom in futurology, and it also generates Significant income for the various research institutes.
On the other hand, reports issued by the Samara State University in Russia indicated that experts at the university are working on a project to develop new technologies used in small satellites dedicated to remote sensing of the Earth.
The report stated that scientists are preparing to test a prototype of a light optical system, which is the first of its kind in the world, that will be used in remote sensing of the Earth by means of nanosatellites.
Mohamed Sabry, assistant professor of geology at the Egyptian National Research Center, said in exclusive statements to “Sky News Arabia” that the great development made by Russia using nanotechnology is the culmination of its success in the space invasion system.
He explained that Moscow “prepares successive generations, and works to connect students with schools and research centers, and works to benefit from their abilities and creativity through their own experiences.”
Sabri added that the nanosatellites allow work from distances 430 km from the surface of the earth, and it is also supposed to operate in its orbits between one and three years, and added that the operation of the new system may achieve high-resolution images of ground areas less than 100. Square
