The ELEKTRO-L hydrometeorological spacecraft was built by NPO Lavochkin and placed into orbit in January 2011. The spacecraft is in a geostationary orbit. In normal mode, ELEKTRO-L takes images of the earth’s surface 24 hours a day every 30 minutes and when needed the interval between imagery sessions may be reduced to 15 minutes.

The NTs OMZ receives the ELEKTRO-L imagery data of the earth’s surface and processes, storages and distributes them to customers. The catalog of the ELEKTRO-L images is accessible on the NTs OMZ Website ( ) and on FTP server ( ).
