"Schwabe" creates scanning mirrors for the new weather satellites

Post Time:Apr 21,2015Classify:Industry NewsView:553

Holding "Schwabe" (part of the state corporation Rostec) completed work on the production of precision blocks scanning mirrors equipment designed for the new weather satellites "Arctic-M". Prototypes of new devices intended for multispectral scanning complex for operational meteorological observations from Earth orbit (MSU-GS) manufactured by JSC "Lytkarino Optical Glass Factory" (included in the "Schwabe"). To solve this problem, the company has developed a system of control and the alignment of the original equipment. Precision is a mirror block that rotates or swings (depending on its type) around its axis. Due to this, the earth's surface is scanned and increase the field of view of the satellite equipment, "- said Deputy General Director of JSC" Schwabe "R & D and innovation development Nikolai Rakovich. He said that there was no distortion of the image in the assembly unit, mirror with high accuracy with respect to the axis of rotation is set. "Earlier, similar blocks are made for satellites hydrometeorological support second-generation" Electro-L "- informed Rakovich. - New blocks scanning mirrors manufactured to the latest satellite equipment" Arktika-M ". The difference of the new products is increased reliability and longer life. They are fully the holding company created by experts, including yourself scanning mirrors". It is planned to create blocks of scanning mirrors for another two similar satellites.

Spacecraft (SC), a new generation of "Arctic-M" will enter the constellation of hydrometeorological space system "Arktika". It will monitor the state of the atmosphere and the Earth's surface in the Arctic region, which is not available for observations from geostationary orbit. Multipurpose System will receive geliogeograficheskie data in the polar regions of the Earth based on multispectral images at intervals of 15-30 minutes and allow to perform many other important tasks, including in the field of telephony and telematic services.


KA "Arktika-M" will be displayed on highly elliptical orbits. He will predict the state of the seas and oceans, ionosphere and the Earth's magnetic field, monitor climate and global change, manage emergencies and carry out environmental monitoring of the environment.
