ELEKTRO Geostationary Hydrometeorological Spacecraft (In Operation)

Mission Objectives

Elektro-L is a Russian second-generation series of geostationary weather satellites. Electro-L satellites are designed to capture real-time images of clouds and the Earths underlying surface, heliogeophysical measurements, collection and translating hydrometeorological and service data.

  • Operational imagery (0.25-0.5-hour periodicity) of cloudiness and Earths underlying surface;
  • Operational acquisition of data on global atmospheric processes in near-equatorial zone that affect weather formation throughout the globe;
  • Heliogeophysical measurements;
  • Collection and relaying of weather and housekeeping data;

Tasks to be Fulfilled

  • to acquire on an operational basis images of cloudiness and the Earth underlying surface;
  • an operational 1-2 times in an hour obtaining of data on global atmospheric processes occurring in subequatorial region and governing weather formation throughout the globe;
  • heliogeophysical measurements;
  • hydrometeorological and housekeeping data collection and transmission.
