Domestic telescopes for tracking space debris will be installed in Africa


Two Russian telescopes will be installed in Africa to monitor space debris. The information was published in the Telegram channel of the Keldysh Institute of Applied Mathematics of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

It also states that on Saturday a meeting was held at the institute with the participation of representatives of the Embassy of Nigeria, the Ministry of Education and Science of Russia and Roscosmos.

"The guests of the Institute were presented with a small-aperture survey telescope designed to observe space debris objects from the territory of Nigeria. As part of the first stage of the UN ISONscope initiative, it is planned to deploy two Russian telescopes in developing countries of the African continent," the report says.

Shortly before that, the Precision Instrumentation Systems NPC, part of the Roscosmos structure, signed a contract with the South African National Space Agency for the deployment of a Russian space debris detection and measurement system in South Africa. The station is designed for automatic detection of spacecraft and space debris objects in low, medium and high Earth orbits.
