Belarus teams up with Russia to create world's best remote Earth sensing satellite

MOSCOW, 28 September (BelTA) – Belarus intends to create the world's best remote Earth sensing satellite in collaboration with Russia, BelTA learned from Chairman of the Presidium of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus Vladimir Gusakov on the sidelines of the expert and media forum "Belarus-Russia cooperation in industry, science and technology. Science. Cosmos. Education".

Vladimir Gusakov said: “Soon we will start creating our own Belarusian satellite. Certainly with Roscosmos' assistance and with participation of our Belarusian enterprises. Simultaneously with that we will start working on the world's best satellite with the sub-meter resolution of 0.35m. We intend to prepare it for launch in 2028. But I think we will go beyond 0.35m because such achievements already exist in the world. We have to work on the world's best such as a resolution of 0.2m and possibly less than that.”

The official also clarified that there are plans to launch another Belarusian satellite with the resolution of 0.5m in 2024-2025.

Plans to create new Belarusian satellites were discussed during a meeting with the Roscosmos head Yuri Borisov. “We received full mutual understanding and support,” Vladimir Gusakov stressed.
