A Belarusian-Russian microsatellite is to be launched into orbit as part of the Monitoring-SG Union State programme, notes Sergey Korenyako, the Departmental Head of the United Institute of Informatics Problems at the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus. Knowledge accumulated from the programme will be used in the further design of microsatellites. Several small spacecrafts (microsatellites) can be placed into orbit in clusters via a booster rocket, laden with optical and electronic equipment, which is able to ensure high quality, reliable space data collection.
