Shvabe Begins Creating New Product for Roscosmos
Russia’s Shvabe Holding has completed design and technological preparation of a product developed under the state contract with the Federal Space Agency. The experts has started creating a prototype of the multispectral equipment with a capture range of 100-120 km within the framework of the contract signed with the Russian Space Agency to develop on-board earth remote sensing devices.
“We plan to finish developing this product by the end of 2015. The new devices installed on the advanced remote sensing units will significantly improve the quality of cartographic information and close a gap between Russia and other countries in this area,” Shvabe Director General Sergey Maksin commented.
The medium resolution multispectral equipment is designed for accomplishing a number of cartographic tasks, including hydrography, forecasting and monitoring of emergency situations, monitoring of transport networks, zoning and planning.
