5 cameras for remote sensing.
16 different satellite missions within the framework of the Space-PI project with the participation of students and schoolchildren.
The small spacecraft "KAI-1" is the first school satellite from Tatarstan. Engineers of the NILAKT DOSAAF company (Kaluga) and students of the Engineering Lyceum-Boarding School of KNRTU-KAI worked on its creation. Students and employees of the Institute of Radio Electronics, Photonics and Digital Technologies of KNRTU-KAI took part in the creation of the payload.
KAI-1 is needed to fix the meteorological situation and conduct remote sensing. He conducts synchronous shooting from five cameras and transmits images to the ground complex. In the future, a panorama of the space around the satellite will be made from the images. Also, a temperature meter based on fiber-optic sensors is tested on board in space conditions.
