RUDN students will take part in testing TNS-0 #2 nanosputnik created by «Russian space systems» holding (RSS is part of Roscosmos state corporation).
In summer RUDN students will learn sputnik operation technologies at the RUDN Mission control center. Together with RSS professionals future specialists in the field of space technologies will get acquainted with the Center’s hardware and software, acquire skills necessary for communication sessions and primary processing of telemetric information.
The sputnik weighs 4 kg and despite small size can carry up to 6 kg load, first of all scientific instruments. It is equipped with all systems that larger space vehicles have – satellite navigation, solar sensors, a highly productive flight computer and an electrical power system. These machines are cheaper in manufacturing and orbiting than larger ones.
The satellite will be put into orbit late summer by one of the members of the International Space Station crew
