The new Russian nanosatellite has successfully passed the exam
The nanosatellite, put into orbit from the ISS on August 17, 2017, has successfully completed the flight tests stage and is now operating under regular conditions, the company said.
Technological nanosatellite TNS-O No. 2, developed by experts of the Russian Space Systems (RKS) holding company is a platform equipped with a communication system, a solar battery and an orientation system. At the core of its design is the integrated onboard information system (IBIS), which monitors the temperature of the system and energy consumption and also the process of correction of problems. The software architecture of IBIS can be changed from the Earth, which is not always possible even with large spacecraft systems. The total weight of the nanosatellite is four kilograms, so it is fairly easy to manufacture and simple to put into orbit.
