Rostec Presents Device for Tracking Natural Disasters from Space

The Shvabe Holding of Rostec State Corporation presented a model of the Aurora system for creating digital maps from space during emergencies and environmental disasters at the 12th International Exhibition of Navigation Systems, Technologies and Services. The development was created by Krasnogorsky Zavod. 

Aurora optoelectronic equipment is a wide-coverage multispectral device for monitoring the state of the Earth's surface from aboard small spacecraft. It is designed to transmit high fidelity images. 

Aurora allows to solve a wide range of tasks in the fields of cartography, monitoring of emergencies, hydrology, agriculture, forestry and fisheries, ecology and geological exploration. The device is included in the basic set of equipment for creating a constellation of small operational observation satellites. 

Aurora has no analogues in terms of its technical characteristics. The device is built on the basis of a mirror-lens objective with a maximum field of view. Unlike foreign counterparts, it provides a key advantage of high-quality images in panchromatic and multispectral ranges. 

"Aurora has no foreign analogues with similar technical characteristics. This demonstration of product capabilities helps to establish new business relationships and analyze the competitive landscape for further development. Krasnogorsky Zavod has prepared proposals for the Russian federal target program for the integrated development of "Sphere" space information technologies for the period up to 2030. We hope to become active participants in this vital program,” said Alexander Novikov, Krasnogorsky Zavod General Director.
