SHARE

ScanEx’s October archive has been replenished with new data, acquired from the Israeli EROS series satellites operated by ImageSat Int.

Space images of 1.9 m resolution for the towns of Tyrnyauz, Timashevsk (Rostov Region), Kaspiysky (Republic of Kalmykia), Zheleznogorsk-Ilimsky (Irkutsk Region), Romodanovo (Mordovia), Elan (Volgograd Region), Skovorodino (Amur Region), Neftekamsk (Bashkiria) have been acquired from EROS A.

EROS B added more 0.7 m resolution images to the Center’s archive covering seven Russian populated areas: Irkutsk, Ekaterinburg, Kamyshin (Volgograd Region), Darun, Krasnokamensk, Nerchinsk and Pervomaisky (Chita Region). In October, EROS B satellite, enabling to do single pass stereo imaging, delivered images of Ukrainian towns as well: Lvov (central and western parts) and Odessa (southern district).

EROS satellites are closing their 2008 imaging season. EROS B had captured highly detailed images of over 30 Russian and Ukrainian towns from March to November. About 60 large populated areas were covered by EROS A within the same time interval, acquiring space data of Minsk (Belarus), Odessa, Lvov, Kiev, Donetsk (Ukraine), Baku (Azerbaijan), Riga (Latvia), Tallin (Estonia), Vilnius (Lithuania) in addition to Russian inhabited areas.

EROS B satellite is still the only sub-meter resolution program directly downlinking images to a network of ground receiving station in Russia, thus achieving quickest possible execution of customer orders.

One may find EROS satellites images in the catalog of www.kosmosnimki.ru geoportal. New imaging of the Russian and CIS areas of interest can be ordered via the ScanEx’s sales department. Order requests are accepted by telephone +7 (495) 739-7385 or by e-mail: [email protected].
