In the period from 1962 till 1980 K.Lapushka together with the inventor M.Abele constructed a universal multi-mode satellite photographic camera AFU-75 that became the main instrument of the satellite observation coordinated by the Council of Astronomy of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR. Approximately 100 cameras were produced and placed in more than 30 countries of the world.
K.Lapushka has arranged the observation places, training of the staff and observation in approximately 20 countries (Japan, India, Egypt, Somalia, Bolivia, French Guayana, French Far East and Antarctic territories, Kergelen Island and New Amsterdam Island and other countries).
K.Lapuska has participated in the creation, examination and installation of laser ranging devices LD-1 Intercosmos, LD-2, laser telescope LS-100 and other in many countries of the world.
The photographic cameras and laser rangers of the Earth artificial satellites are used to determine precise co-ordinates and distances of the satellites, later to be used for determination of cinematic and dynamic parameters, continental dreif, exact time, geocentric co-ordinates of the observatories and global geocentric co-ordinates.
