Space Surveillance Workshop

Russian Page
September 02, 2012

The 9th US/Russian Space Surveillance Workshop took place in Listvyanka in a Krestovaya pad hotel.

Over the past 18 years a series of eight Space Surveillance Workshops have been held between US and Russia. These have focused on sharing information about how each nation has undertaken the task of space surveillance. We have all gained great insight and appreciation of how each has approaches the same basic problem of satellite observation, cataloging and characterization.

The leading experts of both countries working in this area take part in these meetings. As a rule the Workshops pass serially in each of the countries. Except scientific presentations and discussions the fact of informal communication and establishment of personal contacts between experts from the different countries is very important. Organizers of the Workshops always aspire to choose interesting and unusual places in their countries. The previous 8th Workshop have been held in the USA on Maui island which is a part of the Hawaiian Islands. Baikal lake was chosen by the Russian side for the 9th Workshop.

The 9th Space Surveillance Workshop took place in Listvyanka in a Krestovaya pad hotel conference hall from August 27 to August 30, 2012. The Krestovaya pad hotel is located in the neighbourhood to our hotel and we assisted on the organization of excursions and the cultural program for participants of the Workshop. After seminar closing participants of the American delegation who were late in Listvyanka for one day waiting for the plane, were invited to us to a lunch.
