To establish a connection with SamSat-218 professionals at the moment, unfortunately, still failed, however, AIST-2D” may 11 made the first orbit of the earth’s surface after the inclusion of multispectral optoelectronic complex “Aurora”. Satellite AIST-2D” designed for remote sensing of the Earth, and it is planned to develop a technology for the control of small spacecraft.

In turn, the spacecraft “Lomonosov”, equipped with the space telescope to measure the energy spectrum and chemical composition of cosmic rays of extremely high energy from earth orbit, will be used to conduct fundamental cosmological studies. The unit was commissioned by the Moscow state University named after M. V. Lomonosov.

Subsequent launches from the Baikonur “Oriental” planned for 2017. During one of them, as it is expected, will be launched into orbit satellites for remote Earth sounding “kanopus-In” room 3 and 4, during another — meteorological satellite “meteor”.
