Kanopus (V1) & Kanopus (BKA): The Missions

Kanopus (V1) & Kanopus (BKA): The Missions

SSTL supplied suites of satellite avionics and software plus system design support, power management and batteries, on board computers and data handling capabilities for satellite subsystems and satellite operations to NPP VNIIEM for their KANOPUS-V1 satellite programmes. SSTL also supported spacecraft assembly and integration activities in Russia.

KANOPUS-V1 has been developed for Russia and will record abnormal phenomena to study the possibility of earthquake prediction as well as monitoring agriculture, water and coastal resources. The satellites carry a Russian-built 2.1m panchromatic imager plus a 10.5m multispectral imager.
