RESURS P2 is a Russian satellite to survey the globe and a plasma physics experiment to seek out signs of exotic antimatter and dark matter in the cosmos. Designed for a five-year mission, the Resurs P2 satellite will collect imagery of Earth's surface for distribution to Russian government agencies responsible for agriculture, the environment, emergency situations, fisheries, meteorology and cartography. Urban planners, road and highway builders, land surveyors, and the oil and gas industry could use data from the Resurs P2 satellite. The spacecraft carries narrow and wide field of view cameras for close-up snapshots with a top resolution of about 1 meter, or 3.3 feet, and wide-angle images scanning a larger swath of Earth in one pass. Resurs P2 has a hyperspectral camera mode to survey the ground in 96 spectral bands, allowing image analysts to tease out details about vegetation and crop yields. The hyperspectral data can also help scientists determine the effects of insects on agricultural harvests, soil salinity, and microbial activity in large bodies of water. The satellite can also take three-dimensional stereo images. Resurs P2 was built by TsSKB Progress of Samara, Russia. The same storied space company is prime contractor for Russia's legendary Soyuz rockets.
