03/08/2022

Roskosmos today announced through its Telegram channel that the first apparatus of the Sphere multi-satellite constellation, the experimental Skif-D, will be launched into orbit from the Vostochny Cosmodrome at the end of October this year.

Now the design of the satellite is ready and transferred to the assembly shop. At the end of September, Skif-D is transported to Vostochny to prepare for launch. According to the plan, the satellite will be sent into orbit together with the Gontsov-M trio at the end of October, the state corporation said in a statement.

It is noted that work on the Skif-D satellite started at the ISS Reshetnev enterprise in the second half of 2020. The assembly and testing of the device has now begun.

The Skif-D space system is designed to test new technical solutions for providing high-speed Internet access services in Russia, including in the regions of the Far North and the Arctic, as well as to protect the orbital-frequency resource, Roscosmos added.

According to the government-approved Spheres project, a total of 162 vehicles will be launched into orbit, although more than 500 satellites were originally planned.
