Russia's SR Space needs five stations to receive satellite signal

MOSCOW. May 30 (Interfax) - The Russian private space company SR Space, formerly known as Success Rockets, will need five stations in the Russian territory to receive signals from remote sensing satellites, SR Space General Director Oleg Mansurov said in an interview with Interfax.

"From the technological angle, we need five receiving stations, which is what we plan in our budget," Mansurov said.

According to him, the stations will be deployed near Vladivostok, in the north of Yakutia, in Altai, Murmansk, and Sirius in the Krasnodar Territory.

"That will meet all of our needs in data acquisition from remote sensing satellites in the territory of the Russian Federation," Mansurov said.

The stations are being designed, he said.

SR Space is working on four satellite networks, namely, the SR SAR radar sounding system for all-weather monitoring of the Earth's surface, the SR CMS system for atmospheric greenhouse gas monitoring, the SR OKO super-high resolution optical-electronic remote sensing system, and the SR NET Internet satellite group.
