Solar activity monitoring in soft X-ray range, laser and quantum communications development.

Description

Solar activity monitoring in soft X-ray range, laser and quantum communications development.

The Pulse-1 microsatellite should demonstrate the possibility of using small spacecraft (MKAs) to observe the Sun in the soft X-ray range. It also houses equipment that allows you to test the transmission of information over a laser communication channel. It is noted that a small spacecraft with such functionality was launched in Russia for the first time.
