Kanopus-V-K [NPO VNIIEM]
Kanopus-V-IK (Kanopus-Vulkan-Infra-Krasny) is a small Russian remote sensing satellite.
The satellite was originally built as Kanopus-V 2 by NPO VNII Elektromekhaniki, who subcontracted the avionics suite to SSTL. After modifications, it gained a new infra-red capability for a primary purpose of detecting sources of fire as small as five by five meters on a 2000 kilometer swath of land. The infra-red imager is housed in an extension module attached to the standard Kanopus-V configuration.
Provision of the Ministry of the Russian Federation for Civil Defense, Emergencies and Elimination of Consequences of Natural Disasters, Ministry of Natural Resources of the Russian Federation, the Federal Service for Hydrometeorology and Environmental Monitoring, Russian Academy of Sciences operational weather information for the following major tasks:
The satellite was built by NPO VNII Elektromekhaniki, who subcontracted the avionics suite to SSTL. The opticalimager was built by OAO Peleng.
