Russia Testing New Optoelectronic Imager
The first test shots have been made with the new Geoton-L1 optoelectronic imager developed by Shvabe Holding and mounted on the Resurs-P No. 2 spacecraft. This information was presented by the company’s press service.
It should be noted that the Resurs-P No. 2 satellite was launched on December 26, 2014. The Geoton-L1 equipment is intended for operational monitoring and thematic mapping in the interests of the national economy.
