Satellite Kanopus V-IK Transmitted First Pictures of Fires in Southern Russia

The Russian research satellite Kanopus-V-IK, which was launched into orbit in mid-July, has delivered its first shots, RIA FAN reports. The satellite working in the infrared range has captured fires on the territory of Russia and Kazakhstan in the Caspian Sea area.


Operating in the infrared ranges, the Kanopus-V-IK equipment can detect various thermal objects, including fires with the minimal area of 25 square meters.


The satellite is intended not only to detect fires, but also to monitor man-made disasters, the Roskosmos state corporation reported. It orbits around the Earth every 45 minutes.
