Russia Launches Rocket Carrying a Spy Satellite

Russia successfully launched a Soyuz-2-1v rocket carrying the Cosmos-2575 payload, which speculations suggest is the BARS-M optical surveillance satellite

This satellite is part of a space-based optical surveillance system used to capture high-resolution images of the Earth’s surface.

Equipped with an advanced optical sensor, this satellite is capable of capturing images under various lighting conditions, including nighttime and cloudy weather.

The sensor can capture images with a resolution of up to one meter, allowing for detailed analysis of the Earth’s surface.

These satellites operate in sun-synchronous orbits, meaning they pass over the same part of the Earth at the same local solar time every day.
