Russian GoPro for Astronauts to Be Tested in Outer Space Next Year
August 13, 2016 19:06


Autonomous Video Surveillance System is intended for the new generation space suits Orlan-ISS, which are planned to be transported to the International Space Station this year.

The Television Research Institute has  developed domestic video cameras for recording work of the Russian astronauts in the outer space. These will be tested overboard the International Space Station next year. This was reported to TASS by the marketing department of the TRI.

"The system has passed stand-alone and acceptance tests, incoming inspection of the RCC Energia (parent organization on piloted programs in Russia) and system stand tests. Space flight tests are coming in 2017", - the institute informed.

The Russian space camera named Autonomous Video Surveillance System is a headband with two cameras on each side that is put over a helmet. The signal from cameras will be transmitted to receiving equipment of the auxiliary Star module of the Russian ISS segment, and from there to the Mission Control Center situated in Korolev town near Moscow.

As explained by the TRI, the cameras will track the astronauts' work during extravehicular activities.

So far American cameras are used for video filming of the Russian astronauts' operations in the outer space. Before each extravehicular activity they have to be lent from American astronauts. Broadcasting is also carried out through the American means of communication.
The source in space-rocket branch reported that the American cameras are not really suitable for operating in the Russian space suits since they are intended for work with the American space suits.
