High-precision optics for satellites

The Schwabe holding company has developed the Geoton-L1 optical electronic instruments for a satellite of the Resurs-P series launched into orbit on March 13, 2016 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome. It is planned to produce two more specimens in 2017 and 2018.

The resolution of the device allows to distinguish and identify 85 cm long objects from space at a distance of 475 km from the Earth's surface with high certainty. As of today, Geoton-L1 is the most precise optical equipment produced in Russia.

Geoton-L1 will allow maximally accurate terrain mapping, identification of vehicles and buildings, as well as operational control of the ecological condition of the environment and monitoring of emergency situations. The equipment has a number of enhanced information characteristics, high resolution, as well as an extended guarantee period of normal operation up to five years. It is planned to produce two more specimens in 2017 and 2018," said Sergey Popov, Deputy Director General of Schwabe for R&D and Innovative Development.

- -1 . .. . The Geoton-L1 equipment is a modernized version of the Geoton system that was launched as a part of the Resurs-DK spacecraft in 2006. The modern device has not only improved ground resolution and photometric resolution, but also a large number of spectral channels.

The Geoton-L1 was manufactured by Schwabe for spacecraft intended for remote sensing of the Earth Resurs-P1 and Resurs-P2. In 2013-2014 the satellites were launched into orbit for space surveillance and mapping in the interests of national economy of Russia, as well as for obtaining information in the field of monitoring and protection of the environment. Today they effectively work as a part of a satellite constellation. The Resurs-P3 spacecraft is the final satellite of the series which joined the constellation on March 13, 2016.
