Abstract

Small satellites «AIST» is a joint project of Samara State Aerospace University and Space Rocket Centre «Progress» (till 01.07.2014 – State research and production space-rocket center «TsSKB-Progress») with the support of the Government of the Samara region. The paper presents the results of flight development tests and operation of small satellites designed for scientific and educational purposes. Telemetric information on the operability of the small satellites' support systems and the data of the scientific equipment obtained from the orbit is analyzed. Possibilities of further use of «AIST» small satellites for scientific and educational purposes are considered.
