EROS B

Overview

Destination: Low Earth Orbit
Mission: Earth Science

Low Earth Orbit 5 Svobodny Cosmodrome, Russian Federation

In order to address market demand for faster revisit of EROS (Earth Resources Observation Systems B) satellites, ImageSat has purchased the EROS B satellite, which is scheduled for launch during the first quarter of 2006. Similar in appearance to EROS A, the new satellite has superior capabilities, including a larger camera of CCD/TDI type (Charge Coupled Device/Time Delay Integration), with standard panchromatic resolution of 0.70 m at an altitude of about 500 km, a larger on-board recorder, improved pointing accuracy and a faster data communication link.

Moscow Institute of Thermal Technology is a Russian (formerly Soviet) engineering and scientific research institute founded on May 13, 1946. The institute is located in the Otradnoye District in the north of Moscow. Previously, it was primarily focused on developing ballistic missiles and rockets to increase the nation's strategic deterrent capability. Today it is also involved in civilian projects and has modified some of its intercontinental ballistic missiles into launch vehicles to be used for satellites.
