Perm State University (PSU) will soon start handling Earth observation images in near real-time mode. Cutting-edge technology is to be applied both in science and education and for socio-economic development of Perm Territory. New possibilities and perspectives of introduction of such technology were discussed on February 14 by representatives of PSU, local administration and science-intensive business at the ceremony of opening the Interregional Space Monitoring Center of Term Territory (SMC).

Software reception complexes Alice-SC and UniScan, developed at ScanEx RDC, are the backbones of this Interregional SMC operation. Receiving stations nowadays are capable of collecting data from Terra, Aqua, SPOT 4 and NOAA satellites. There are plans to upgrade firmware complexes to enable direct reception of all-weather radar data and highly detailed images from EROS A/B and other optical satellites. Perm State Univeristy Development Program envisages a step-by-step expansion of the SMC functionality until 2014. Budgets of different levels are used to allocate funds for the creation and development of the Perm SMC. Valery Sherstnev, PSU First Pro-Rector, noted that these funds will be spent only on the equipment, as later on the SMC will be switched to self-accounting.

According to PSUs GIS-Center Director Sergei Pyankov the Interregional SMC of Perm Territory will enable to tackle a wide range of tasks:
- Development of the special data infrastructure in Perm Territory based on Earth remote sensing data;
- Comprehensive satellite-based monitoring of the municipal entity;
- Fire situation and forest management monitoring, etc.;
- Creation of regional precision navigation system;
- Support of basic map-making set of the region;
- Development of regional geo-information system based on geoportal;
- Continuation of personnel training system shaping and others.

Availability of own Space Monitoring Center considerably increases the operability of operations with satellite imagery data. The Perm SMC will ensure reception of the required information about the territory, sites and happenings within 1 hour of imaging.

UniScan and Alice-SC receiving stations of the Interregional SMC in Perm allow the user to monitor the areas in near real-time mode far beyond the Perm Territory. Therefore all adjacent administrative entities Kirov Region, Republic of Udmurtia, Republic of Komi, etc. - will also be able to use the Perm SMC possibilities, if needed.

During the Perm SMC opening ceremony on February 14 issues, related to integrated application of different satellite systems, were also discussed. In particular, options of Precision Positioning Navigation System application were reviewed.

- If based on the PSUs Space Monitoring Center it will become possible to unite and to introduce different approaches imaging, navigation, GIS this will open unique opportunities for the development of entire Perm Territory, - noted ScanEx General Director Vladimir Gershenzon.
