Russian engineers from Krasnoyarsk have successfully tested a model of a new remote sensing satellite “Cosmos SX”.
Tests confirmed strength characteristics of the satellite. Engineers plant to continue introduction of newest technological solutions to the satellite – making solar battery panels weigh less, for instance, which makes technical characteristics of the vehicle much better.
“Cosmos SX” remote sensing satellites will provide high-accuracy data on farming lands state, as well as predict and estimate cropping capacity. Moreover, new space vehicles will allows predicting draughts, floods and other natural disasters.
