Paper Abstract

Main problems of observation of radiation-dangerous objects are considered. The experience of use of various detectors for observation of the accident at the Chernobyl NPP is presented. General task comes to constant monitoring of the radiation-dangerous objects using special equipment that is capable to ensure fixing any geometric change of the object and its external state with resolution 10...15 m, generation of the dust cloud, and direction and speed of movement of this cloud. This problem may be solved using a group of small low orbit satellites that provide multispectral optical, radar, and lidar monitoring.
