    Russia to build submarine-detecting satellite.

    Russia could build a satellite for the detection and tracking of submarines from space, a defense industry spokesman said on Thursday.
    Vladimir Boldyrev, of the Kosmonit science and technology center, said the group had developed a space satellite module that could carry out remote sensing of the sea and "detect submerged submarines."
    "Hopefully, it will be tested in space as early as 2011," he said, adding that work on the module started over a decade ago.
    He offered no indication as to when the new satellite would enter service with the Russian Armed Forces.
    Boldyrev added that the dual-use module would be used for both defense and civilian purposes, in particular, providing meteorological data.
