The statement was made by Chairman of the Presidium of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus (NASB) Vladimir Gusakov, in the presence of Igor Komarov, Head of the Russian Space Agency. The new satellite will boast higher image resolution — less than one meter — while the present satellite’s resolution stands at two meters. It means that the satellite’s imagery will be more precise. And we believe that it will be used not only for domestic purposes,” stated Gusakov.
