Yubileyniy 2 / MiR (RS 40)

Yubileyniy 2 / MiR [ISS Reshetnev]

Yubileiny-2 or MiR (Mikhail Reshetnev) is a small satellite built by ISS Reshetnev together with the Siberian State Aerospace University (SibSAU) of Krasnoyarsk to test advanced technologies. It is a follow up mission to the Yubileyniy satellite.

The satellite is based on ISS Reshetnev's Yubileyniy platform, which features an hexagonal prism structure, body mounted solar cells and a gravity gradient boom. The payload was partially developed and built by students of SibSAU.

The payload consisted of:

  • contoured heat pipes
  • new technological enhancements for onboard radio equipment
  • small-sized sensitive, high-precision elements of AOCS
  • solar concentrators experiment, using an experimental solar panel module.
  • a compact navigation receiver installed in MiR (intended to obtain the spacecraft’s orbit parameters using the GLONASS and GPS technology
  • OBC (On-Board Computer)
  • an Earth remote sensing camera
  • a laser corner reflector intended to measure the distance from the satellite to the Earth.
