State Research Center "Planeta"
(SRC "Planeta")

SRC "Planeta" is a leading organization in exploiting and development of national satellite Earth observation systems for hydrometeorological, oceanographic, heliogeophysical and environmental purpose and also in receiving and processing data from foreign satellites. SRC "Planeta" works in cooperation with national hydrometeorological services and space agencies of more than 30 countries: USA, European Union, Japan, India, China, South Korea and others.




SRC "Planeta" is executing operative control and guidance management of ground system for receiving and processing satellite data that includes three regional centers: European center (SRC "Planeta", Moscow, with branch offices in Obninsk and Dolgoprudny), Siberian center (regional department in Novosibirsk) & Far-Eastern center (regional department in Khabarovsk). Ground system also includes a network of almost 70 stationary and mobile autonomous receiving stations located in Russia, Antarctica, or mounted on ships. Together they provide satellite data coverage for all the territory of Russian Federation and Europe.




SRC "Planeta" ground system is one of the largest in the world and the largest in Russian Federation. It receives and processes vast amounts of data (more than 1 Terabyte per day) from 16 national and foreign Earth observation satellites, issues more than 350 types of satellite information products, maintains a satellite data archive (that has a status of a Federal Data Fund) and supports more than 530 federal, regional and local level users. The system is the largest in the world in terms of territorial coverage (1/5 of the Earths surface).




In Russia this system is unique and is used as a base federal system for supporting federal government with satellite information. It is also used for supporting Russias obligations in international satellite data exchange. SRC "Planeta" acts as an operator of on-board hydrometeorological and oceanographical equipment that is mounted on national Earth observation satellites. At present, Russian orbital constellation consists of five meteorological and environmental satellites: geostationary satellite "Elektro-L"1 and polar-orbiting satellites "Meteor-M"1, "Meteor-M"2, "Kanopus-V" and "Resurs-P".




SRC "Planeta" is participating on regular basis in major national and international programs concerned with use of Earth remote sensing data: operative hydrometeorology, ecology, global climate research and monitoring, disaster monitoring etc. Center possesses vast experience in realization of various applied projects (including international projects in collaboration with leading world organizations) and in building of territorial and specialized informational systems that use satellite data.
