    The active life of the devices will be 8 years

    MOSCOW, February 15. /TASS/. Barl has started manufacturing ground-based infrastructure for the Arktika-KN space group. This was announced by the General designer of JSC "RPC "barl" Valery Labutin.

    "We have started manufacturing the ground infrastructure [of the Arktika-KN group], and we have started manufacturing the load for this spacecraft," Labutin said at a round table of the Federation Council Committee on economic policy on the prospects for commercial space programs.

    As specified in Labutin's presentation, the resolution of the satellites of the grouping will be 40 meters in the visible range and 60 meters in the IR range. The active life of the devices will be 8 years.

    "AIS equipment will also be installed on the spacecraft, which will allow receiving information about the routes of vessels," the presentation says.

    In October 2020, the head of Roscosmos, Dmitry Rogozin, during a speech at a meeting chaired by Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin, spoke about plans to create a grouping of Arctic-KN satellites to monitor the waters of the Northern sea route. According to him, it will be able to receive information in various ranges and can be created as part of a public-private partnership.
