Remote sensing with a camera and amateur radio satellite.


16 different satellite missions within the framework of the Space-PI project with the participation of students and schoolchildren.

The Kuzbass-300 spacecraft is the first satellite in the history of the region to be launched into space. It was developed by Kemerovo schoolchildren, students and scientists of the Kuzbass State Technical University (KuzGTU) on the satellite platform OrbiCraft-Pro SXC3 of the SPUTNIKS company. Creation and launch are dedicated to the 300th anniversary of one of the largest and most developed regions of Russia - the Kemerovo region-Kuzbass.

The camera with a spatial resolution of 15-50 m (from a height of 600 km) conducts remote sensing of the Earth. The device itself, in addition to data from the camera, transmits voice messages and postcards to the Earth for the tercentenary of Kuzbass.
