First photos by Geoscan-Edelveis received from space

Two weeks have passed since our satellite Geoscan-Edelveis went into orbit. On the first day of its flight our team established communication with it, sent signals in order to collect information from the sensors, and received the answers. The spacecraft is in orbit inclined at 97° at the altitude of 458х494 km and works within the amateur radio range at 436,2 MHz (its call sign is RS20S).

First Geoscan spacecraft in space

On Tuesday, at 08:52:38 (Moscow time), from the Baikonur Cosmodrome 16 small spacecraft designed within the educational project Space-π, were launched into space, while being an additional payload to a commercial foreign satellite. The main and additional payloads were sent into orbit with the help of the launch vehicle Soyuz-2.1b and the Fregat upper stage. The simultaneous launch of 16 Russian satellites broke a record in the history of the Russian rocket and space industry.

Identification of structural control factors of primary gold ore occurrences by method of unmanned aeromagnetic survey by the example of the Neryungrisky district of Yakutia

The authors pursued their goal to develop a system of approaches in the organization of unmanned magnetometer survey, implemented for structural and geological mapping. The data for the research were collected within the project in the Neryungrinsky district of Yakutia. Based on the obtained materials, the authors carried out the analysis, modified the office analysis of magnetometry data as well as created a physical and geological model of the investigated area.

Digital map of hard-to-reach areas of Antarctica created with Geoscan UAVs

At the end of last year, a Geoscan pilot as part of Russian Antarctic Expedition (RAE) embarked for the South Pole. The purpose of the trip is aerial photography to obtain cartographic materials of hard-to-reach areas of the glacier and the study of the albedo of various types of snow-ice surfaces.
