Study of the parameters of the upper ionosphere, the state of the plasma and the Earth's magnetic field along the motion trajectory.

Description

The SamSat-ION nanosatellite is a CubeSat 3U satellite developed, manufactured and tested at the Interuniversity Department of Space Research of Samara University.

The basis for the development of the SamSat-ION nanosatellite is an agreement on the participation of Samara University in a consortium of Russian universities and scientific organizations to create a constellation of nanosatellites in the CubeSat 3U format for studying the ionosphere and magnetosphere of the Earth, signed in 2018. The initiator and organizer of the consortium is Samara University. The consortium included eight universities, the Institute of Physics of the Earth of the Russian Academy of Sciences, JSC Geoscan Technologies, LLC Astronomicon Laboratory, and in 2021 the Geographic Information Systems Unitary Enterprise (Republic of Belarus) joined the consortium. The creation of the consortium was supported by the Space Research Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Institute of Applied Geophysics of Roshydromet.

SamSat-ION is designed to solve the following scientific problems:

Results

Since its launch on June 27, 2023, 2,465 packages of telemetry information have been received from the SamSat-ION nanosatellite (telemetry of the SEP, PrmPrd, on-board digital computer and the measuring system of the small spacecraft).

As a result of flight design tests, it was possible to completethe following tasks:
