Russian satellite Canopus B earned in the space

Emergency Monitoring

The satellite monitoring system emergencies Russian Emergencies Ministry has started to work with the data of the satellite "Canopus B" in direct reception mode

The system is versatile small station "UniScan" development and production of ETC "RDC". Stations are located in Moscow, Vologda, Krasnoyarsk and Vladivostok and allow to obtain satellite images from different satellites to high-frequency monitoring, forecasting and disaster management.

The operational management of the departmental system of space monitoring of emergencies (SCM ES) provides PKU National Center for Crisis Management (National Emergency Management Center).

The satellite monitoring system allows emergency in direct reception mode to receive satellite images of varying resolution of seven satellites equipped with radar and optical Earth imaging equipment with a spatial resolution of 0.7 m to 250 m Now SCM ES also able to work with the data of the Russian satellite "Canopus In "direct mode of reception. 

At present system of space monitoring of emergencies working with satellite data "Canopus B" in the test mode. Full-featured commissioning scheduled according to the program of the SCM emergencies.

— The hardware part of the station "UniScan" versatile and programmable, that allows you to receive information from Earth observation satellites in a wide range of formats. Due to this in a short time given the opportunity to work with the data satellite "Canopus-B" of the entire system of space monitoring of WC, — said General Director of the ITC "RDC" Vladimir Gershenzon.

— For the purposes of monitoring, control and elimination of emergency situations using both operational and archival satellite data. Using data device "Canopus B" will further expand our capabilities in the field of monitoring of man-made and natural disasters, extreme weather events, detect forest fires, — Says Alexander Epihin, Head of the National Emergency Management Center of Space Monitoring of the Russian Emergencies Ministry.

Spacecraft "Canopus-V", launched in July 2012, working in a circular sun-synchronous orbit of 510 ± 10 km and an inclination of 97.4 degrees. Mass of the satellite is 473 kg, payload weight — 106 kg. The complex includes a target equipment panchromatic (MSS) and multispectral (MSS) imaging systems.
