At the same time these temperature control panels are structural members of the space vehicle body. Additionally they are also equipped with thermo-optical coating which allows to decrease thermal load for satellites. All the solutions applied are aimed at increasing service life of the satellites.
“We are very glad to see a successful launching of the latest space apparatus of the “Kanopus - V” group. At present in total 52 space vehicles equipped with science-intensive components manufactured at our enterprise have already been placed into orbit ” – Olesya Shirina, chief of direction for production of space engineering structures at ORPE Technologiya, noticed.
The space complex “Kanopus-V” which comprises a family of space apparatus ensures monitoring of technogenetics and natural emergency situations, hydrometeorological events, operating supervision for required regions of the earth surface.
