MOSCOW, November 18. /TASS/. Specialists of the NPO Lavochkin Research and Production Association have completed the conceptual design of the Electro-M new-generation hydrometeorology satellite, NPO Lavochkin Director General Viktor Khartov told TASS on Tuesday.
“We have already completed the conceptual design of the new spacecraft Electro-M. Then we will be working out the solutions and technology primarily for the payload,” he said, adding that the new satellite would surpass all the world analogues in characteristics.
According to the draft Federal Space Program for 2016-2025, the launch of four Electro-M satellites is planned in the period from 2021 to 2024. These spacecraft will make 20-channel multispectral simultaneous scanning, take air temperature and humidity measurements in the infrared band, make real-time lightning recording, monitor the state of magnetosphere and upper atmosphere. The satellites’ active service life period is 10 years.
