Russia Reduces Reliance on Foreign Remote Sensing Data

Russia’s space agency Roscosmos has indicated that they have significantly reduced their reliance on foreign remote sensing satellites.

“A significant reduction has been noted in the use of foreign Earth remote sensing satellites, which is linked to the provision of similar data by Russian space devices,” the agency said in a statement.

The same statement indicated that the United Geographically-Distributed Information System (UGDIS) has been completed. The system will ensure the distribution Russian satellite data to all those who require access. An Arctic remote sensing center will also be opened in Russia’s northern port of Murmansk jointly with the emergency services ministry.
