MOSCOW, May 9 – RIA Novosti. The concept of the new radar satellite system “The GEOSAR” is capable of observing objects beneath the earth’s surface in all weather conditions and at any time of the day, the head of the research institute TsNIIMash on the instructions of Roscosmos.
Currently, Russia is not in the grouping of radar satellites. However, in 2019 and 2020 in orbit are launched spacecraft of this type “Kondor-FKA” and in 2021 and 2023 – “Overview-R”. Recently, the Federal space Agency is ordered the development of a modernized radar satellite “Kondor-FKA-M” with the launch in 2025.
“Identified key areas to target geosynchronous radar space system “The GEOSAR“. Developed preliminary requirements for the nomenclature and characteristics of the information products”- said in the documents, the Institute posted on the procurement website.
In the course of the course, the specialists of the Institute have identified the characteristics of the new system, the used frequency range of radars, satellites, and other characteristics. The optimum construction of the satellite constellation. To develop the technical shape of satellites and their orbital construction “Information satellite systems” them. Reshetnev” Satellites for military and civilian needs. Previously, the company was engaged in the development and creation of satellites for remote sensing, which include radar devices.
The principle of operation of radar satellites is based on the radiation in the direction of the Land and the Registration of satellites of the reflected probe pulses. The use of radar allows for the acquisition of the image of the terrain, the use of the radar, and the use of radar.
