“The panels are strongly sought-for products. In the last three years we have supplied over 400 temperature control panels and solar cell carriers. We are constantly working on the development of design-engineering solutions found. Currently the Enterprise has enough bookings with confirmed financial backing for completing advanced space vehicles up to 2020,” said A. Silkin, Director General of ORPE Technologiya.
The KANOPUS-V-IK satellite is used for the monitoring of technogenic and natural emergency situations, including forest fires and major releases of contaminants. The devices of new generation will make it possible to obtain the breakthrough information owing to the higher spatial resolution and a wide hold-in range (2000 km). But the key advantage of the satellite is the ability of detection of small fire seats (just 25 m2 in area). Besides, ORPE Technologiya takes part in the development of four more space vehicles of this type.
