    According to ministry press release, Russian Defense Ministry will construct more than ten complexes of new-generation space surveillance systems.

    KUBINKA (Moscow Region) (Sputnik) Russian Defense Ministry will construct more than ten complexes of new-generation space surveillance systems, increasing the precision of space observation, the ministry said in a press release Thursday.

    This would "considerably increase the information capabilities of Russian space surveillance, expand the range of controlled orbits and reduce the minimum size of space objects detected by 2-3 times," the press release said.

    The construction of the new space surveillance systems is taking place in Moscow, Kaliningrad, Altai and Primorsky regions, according to the ministry.
