Nanosatellite SamSat-218 meets all safety requirements and is ready to ship on Saturday, reported the press service of Samara state aerospace University.
SAMARA, 22 Dec,. Samara state aerospace University received a certificate for his development of the nanosatellite Samsat-218, reported in a press-service of the Samara aerospace University.
“The University received the certificate confirms that the nanosatellite SamSat-218 safety requirements when performing work in preparation for, during launch and in flight of the carrier rocket “Soyuz-2.1 a”… Nanosatellite complies with all safety requirements and is ready to be sent to the Eastern spaceport”, — explained the press service of the University.
Certification nanosatellite was carried out CJSC “certification Centre rocket and space technology” under the Federal certification system for space technology. SSAU received such a document for the first time in the history of the University.
“For us this is very important because our young team has worked at the highest level, which today is presented to the creators of space technology. And I will not be mistaken if I say that no other University in Russia has no such document”, — said the head of the interuniversity Department of space research SGAU Igor Belokonov.
The first Russian student nanosatellite SamSat-218 is designed and manufactured at the Samara state aerospace University. It is intended for working off of algorithms of orientation control of nano-satellites.
With the help of scientists of SSAU nanosatellite going to manage the processes running on Board, from a mobile device connected to the mobile satellite communications system GlobalStar. The authors of the experiment plan “call” on Board with the mobile terminal and to receive the necessary telemetry information on the flight.
Nanosatellite SamSat-218 will become a participant of the first launch campaign at the spaceport East. Starting with the new Russian cosmodrome is scheduled for spring 2016. The first starts from the Eastern Samara rocket “Soyuz-2.1 a”, which will be put into orbit another device created by SSAU and the RCC “Progress” — MCA “AIST-2”.
Samara state aerospace University named after Korolev (national research University status was awarded in 2009) — an educational institution of higher professional education, one of the leading technical universities in Russia. In SSAU at the same time receive higher education more than 10 thousand students, of which more than 7 thousand are enrolled full-time.
