Description: The Russian Federation Space Agency Roscosmos Elektro-L is a meteorological geosynchronous satellite series intended to provide weather analysis and forecasting on a global and regional scale as well as monitoring changes in the climate. Its optical instruments have been designed to provide imagery of the entire visible hemisphere of Earth at a resolution of 1 kilometer (km) per pixel (visible light band) and 4 km (IR band) every 30 minutes The first spacecraft, Elektro-L 1, was launched by a Zenit-3SB rocket from Baikonur space center in Kazakhstan on January 20, 2011. Russia will procure up to two Elektro-L satellites combined with 6 to 9 Meteor-M spacecrafts to support its space-based weather forecasting capabilities across the country's 11 tome zones.
