Satellite of the Tyumen State University for environmental monitoring of the Tyumen region. The spacecraft was assembled as part of a project for remote diagnostics of the troposphere and water bodies using satellite infrared thermometry. The payload was developed at SINP MSU.
After entering orbit, the device will take pictures of clouds of different tiers and dozens of lakes in the visible and infrared ranges simultaneously. Tyumen schoolchildren will be able to remotely determine their temperature and contribute to improving the reliability of weather forecasts. Data on the dynamics of the surface temperature of lakes in the spring-autumn period will make it possible to judge the thermal regime of lakes as one of the determining factors for the existence of their biota.
The satellite is also planned to be used as part of the smart city concept. Space data make it possible to assess the workload of parking lots, the situation on the roads, and to see the scale of certain natural phenomena. It is planned that the Tyumen State University spacecraft will solve the problems of data delivery in hard-to-reach places.
