“The state commission reviewed the results of flight tests, it was decided to complete the tests, it was recommended to transfer the Arktika-M system with the Arktika-M No. 1 spacecraft into operation”, the press service of the state corporation reported.


Let us remind you that the Arktika-M satellite was launched in February. The spacecraft has a design life of seven years. Its functionality includes solving problems of operational meteorology, hydrology, agrometeorology, as well as monitoring the climate and environment in the Arctic region. The satellite took the first satellite images of the Arctic in March.

The Russian space orbital group, which will monitor the climate and the environment, will consist of two satellites replacing each other. It is planned that the two devices will provide a continuous round-the-clock view of the northern territory of Russia and the Arctic region of the globe.

Earlier we told that a new permafrost monitoring system will be introduced in Russia.
