Baumanets 2

Baumanets 2 [BMSTU]

Baumanets 2 is a scientific experimental satellite that utilizes a new satellite bus.

The Baumanets-2 microsatellite is in the shape of a 80 cm cube. Among other experiments, a remote sensing camera onboard will acquire 30 meters resolution images. All equipment is developed and manufactured by Bauman University students.

Payload and mission:

  • Earth remote sensing;
  • Measurement of satellite signal attenuation at various angles;
  • Data transmission through Globalstar network;
  • Onboard computer flight testing;
  • Flight testing of thermo resistive engine for orbit correction;
  • Radiation Assurance experiment developed by Montpellier-2 University students (FRP).

The satellite was launched on 28 November 2017 as a copassenger on a Soyuz-2-1b Fregat-M rocket, but was lost due to an upper stage problem.
