Designed to receive signals from AIS transmitters installed on ships for the purpose of subsequent analysis of the data received from the spacecraft.


The small spacecraft was created by employees and students of the Moscow Institute of Electronics and Mathematics of the National Research University Higher School of Economics on the basis of the OrbiCraft-Pro 3U platform of the Sputniks company .  The AIS hardware - software complex  and other experimental payloads  are on board as a payload . 

The cubesat consists of three units  mounted on a single frame . One of the units is allocated for the block of flywheels that  orient the device in space ,  the second includes all the boards for the operation of the satellite , and the third is completely reserved for the payload .
