Zorkiy 2M

Zorkiy 2M [SPUTNIX]

Zorkiy 2M is a Russian 12U CubeSat developed by SPUTNIX.

SPUTNIX' OrbiCraft-Pro 12U platform serves as the foundation for the Zorky-2M nanosatellite. The new technologies tested onboard include the use of a multispectral camera with higher resolution and a faster data transfer rate to Earth. The CubeSat 12U satellite being developed has dimensions of 20 × 30 cm folded solar panels and a mass of about 20 kg.

The main payload of the Zorky-2M satellite is a camera with a resolution of 2.75 meters per pixel that shoots in four spectral ranges. Furthermore, the device is outfitted with a receiver for receiving and transmitting automatic identification system (AIS) signals from ships to ground stations, which serves to monitor and ensure the safety of navigation, including along the Northern Sea Route.
