Scientific experiments on the ISS

SPUTNIX together with the Moscow State University, Sirius Educational Centre, Moscow Institute of Electronics and Mathematics (MIEM HSE), and Skobeltsyn Institute of Nuclear Physics (SINP MSU) are conducting a space experiment "School satellite" on the International Space Station.

The experiment is performed using scientific equipment, separated from the ISS. The equipment is an autonomous CubeSat-format nanosatellite platform with various payloads installed on it.

Communication with CubeSat performs in amateur radio band with open telemetry and scientific information packages. This provides information receiving directly from the spacecraft by all participants of the space experiment in case of receiving equipment presence.

As part of the experiment, the SiriusSat-3 satellite launch is planned.
