The mission goal of Rubin-3-DSI (DSI = dopolnitel'naya sistema izmereniya = Additional Measurement System) is to test the launch vehicle tracking possibilities outside the launch site telemetry system visibility areas. The most important ascent status parameters are transmitted via the Orbcomm constellation in near real time mode directly to the customer via e-mails (payload separation confirmation, flight event time etc).
The orbital telematics experiment Rubin-4-DSI is located on the upper stage of the Kosmos-3M and transmits information on the rocket's acceleration, vibration load and position. Rubin will transmit this information to earth via e-mail using the Orbcomm satellite communications system. In this way, it will be possible to track the rocket in orbit reliably and without any data loss.
