Russia: Russian engineers from Krasnoyarsk have successfully tested a model of a new remote sensing satellite “Cosmos SX”.
Tests confirmed strength characteristics of the satellite. Engineers plan to continue working on the newest technological solutions like making solar battery panels weigh less.
“Cosmos SX” remote sensing satellites will provide high-accuracy data on farming lands as well as predict and estimate cropping capacity. Moreover, new space vehicles will help in predicting draughts, floods and other natural disasters.
