Study of the influence of space weather factors on small spacecraft systems in the polar regions. Obtaining and analyzing data on vessel traffic in the waters of the Northern Sea Route.

  1. Study the influence of space weather factors on the systems of a small spacecraft in the polar regions.
  2. Acquisition and data analysis on the movement of vessels in the waters of the Northern Sea Route
  3. Involving schoolchildren and students in scientific and technical creativity and developing their current competencies in the field of data processing and analysis.

The ArcticSat-1 spacecraft is capable to transmit of camera photos and preloaded images in digital and analog format (SSTV) to ground amateur radio stations around the world for educational purposes.


The presentation of the socio-cultural project “Octopus Octo-Pax” by Russian artist Nastya Miro and the university satellite on which the art object will be sent into orbit took place at the office of the private space company SPUTNIX. The goal of the project is to draw the attention of society and youth audiences to environmental problems and pollution of the near-Earth space. In the company's laboratory, engineers presented a satellite that will be used as part of the Octo-Pax Octopus project. Inside, the device will also be equipped with a security camera aimed at the art object. This will make it possible to remotely monitor the space travel of the installation.
