Rezonans 1A, 1B, 2A, 2B

Rezonans

Rezonans is a microsatellite constellation designed to study the magnetosphere. Objectives of the mission will be studies of the evolution of the magnetic field, the ring currents, magnetospheric storms and plasma dynamics. A special objective will be the study of magnetospheric cyclotron resonance masers, which might play a significant role in the shape of the radiation belts.

The satellites will operate in pairs in intersecting elleiptical orbits of 500 km × 28000 km at an inclination of 63.4.

The Rezonans satellites are based on Lavochkin's Karat microsatellite bus.
