Scanex announces EROS Family Not to Take a Summer Vacation!

Russia – Summer is known to be the favorite time of the year for the majority of Europeans since this is the vacation season. Surprisingly hardware copies the likes of its creators and functions best of all in this cloudless time of the year without even going on vacation! Thus, in the period from June 19 to July 31 the EROS constellation successfully completed detail imagery of a number of cities and regions in Russia, Kazakhstan, Ukraine and Byelorussia. Starting June 19, 2008 the ScanEx 1.9-meter resolution imagery archive was topped up with satellite images of Minsk the capital, Voskresensk and Kolomna of Moscow region, Gelendzhik and Yalta resorts, riparian Nizhni Novgorod, Yakutsk, Rostov-on-Don, Dnepropetrovsk, Volgograd, Perm, Dudinka, the centers of the south near-border subjects – Belgorod, Kursk, Grozny, Makhachkala and Krasnodar.

The EROS A satellite closely monitored the Earth and the Center kept sending commands. As a result the following cities have now their space images available: Syktyvkar, Izhevsk, Miass (Chelyabinsk region), Pechora (Komi republic), Voronezh, Pyatigorsk (Stavropol region), Donetsk (Ukraine) and Pavlodar (Kazakhstan).

No lazybones were to be found in the EROS family and the outcome of the hard work done by the second satellite of the series, EROS В craft , were the 70cm resolution images of the following cities: Kiev (center), St Petersburg (west), Khanty-Mansiysk, Tyumen, Salekhard, Volgodonsk (Rostov region), Ukhta (Komi), Solikamsk (Perm region), Donetsk (Ukraine) and Volgograd.
