RUDN students and more than 60 space industry specialists who are mastering specialized programs at RUDN will get access to the satellite information. It will allow them to have adequate experience in designing small space vehicles and accompanying systems.

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.

RUDN Mission Control System will broadcast the Russian astronauts spacewalk and TNS-0 #2 launch.
