Member-states of EEU plan to design first joint spacecraft
Thus, the integrated project Creation of the integrated system of the member-states of the EEU on presenting space and geoinformation services based on the national sources of data of remote sensing of the Earth will be implemented.
Representatives of the executive bodies on space activity and the national operators of the systems of remote sensing of the Earth (RSE) of the Republic of Kazakhstan, Republic of Belarus, the Russian Federation, experts of the republic of Armenia and the Kyrgyz Republic, as well as participants of the Eurasian technology platform Space and geoinformation technologies � the products of global competitiveness have discussed the organizational and technical matters on preparation and decided to create the joint working group, which will work on presenting proposals on the project.
Work of the group will undergo through two stages, At the first stage, experts will define the importance of developing of the international agreement on cooperation of the member-states of the Union in the sphere of presenting of space and geoinformation services, as well as will consider an opportunity to use the multilateral agreement which have already been existing, was informed in the EEC.
The second stage, which will have been finished in November 2018, considers the preparation of proposals on the content of the interstate program of the member-states of the EEU.
The main result of the integrated project will be increase of efficiency and quality of providing consumers of various sectors of economy of the member-states of the EEU, space information and transformation products of remote sensing of the Earth.
Formation of the working group is the start of the practical implementation of the plan of events on creation of joint orbital group of the member-states of the EEU, which was designed by the EEC jointly with the Eurasian innovative technology platform Space and geoinformation technology. Besides the creation of the Eurasian orbital group, the joint design and launch of the first sample of the spacecraft of the Union will be its result, was said in the commission.
Besides, as one of the directions of joint work within the project, the possibility of integration of resources of functioning orbital groups of spacecrafts of RSE of the Union States and creation of the common information of ground infrastructure, which will enable to provide an access for global users to the integrated resources of the national systems of RSE and their commercialization in the market of the member-states of the EEU and in the world market.
It was noted in the EEC that more difficult and important stage of the project will be the creation of the joint orbital group of the member-states of the Union based on the perspective spacecrafts with innovative complex of Earth observation and formation of production cooperation of plants of the EEU with this purpose. The technical possibility and economic expediency of creation of the joint orbital group of the member-states and which should be justified by the joint working group.
