AKIPRESS.COM - Belarus plans to use its satellite as part of a cluster with the satellites of Kazakhstan and Vietnam, Sergei Zolotoi, Director of the R&D enterprise Geoinformation Systems of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus, told a press conference in BelTA on January 20.

“We are currently in talks with Vietnam and Kazakhstan on the operation of our satellites in the cluster. If all the issues are settled, we will be able to exchange space information,” said Sergei Zolotoi.

He stressed that the operation of satellites in a cluster is a global tendency. Vietnam is interested in monitoring the islands situated on the border with China.

“Vietnam has its satellite, which is similar to ours. It was launched by France. There are technical problems, however, as the technology installed on the Vietnamese spacecraft by the Europeans does not make it possible to integrate with other satellites. Besides, Vietnam has its legislative constraints. They do not have the right to sell or pass the information from their satellite to anybody. If we reach a consensus here, we will be able to organize an exchange of space information,” said Sergei Zolotoi.

Belarus is also in talks with Kazakhstan. “Kazakhstan has two satellites on orbit. We expect that the intergovernmental agreement on space cooperation with Kazakhstan will be signed and ratified in the near future. The agreement was worked out a year ago. It will open up room for closer cooperation between the two countries,” Sergei Zolotoi said.
