Resurs-P (P stands for “prospecting”) is a Russian spacecraft for the remote sensing of the Earth. It was developed by the RSC Progress to replace the previous satellite Resurs-DK1. The spacecraft is designed to update maps, ensure the economic activities of the Ministry of Natural Resources of Russia, the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia, Rosselkhoz, Rosrybolovstvo, Roshydromet and other consumers, as well as obtain information in the field of environmental monitoring and protection.

    Onboard equipment:

  • Optical electronic system “GEOTON-L1”;
  • Hyperspectral apparatus (HSA);
  • Wide-capture multispectral imaging equipment: WCMI-HR and WCMI-MR.

The satellite provides with the help of the instrument GEOTON-L1 a highly detailed scanning of the earth's surface with a resolution of 70 centimeters in monochromatic mode and no worse than 3-4 meters in 5-spectral bands. The width of the strip of the earth's surface taken in one span is 38 km.

There is also a complex of hyperspectral observations (HSA) in 96–255 intervals (wavelength 0.4–1.1 μm) with a resolution of 25–30 m in a 25 km strip.

The device has two sets of wide-capture multispectral imaging equipment: high resolution (WCMI-HR) and medium resolution (WCMI-MR). When using them, the following characteristics are provided (WCMI-HR and WCMI-MR respectively): resolution in monochromatic mode: 12 m, 60 m; resolution in 5 spectral ranges: 23.8 m, 120 m; capture width 97 km, 441 km.
