A resident of the “Skolkovo” fund space technology cluster – “Azmerit” – plans to begin batch production of compact star sensors in the first half of 2016, CEO of “Azmerit” Marat Abubekerov told RIA Novosti at the International Aviation and Space Salon MAKS-2015.

“In June 2015, a prototype of a compact star sensor for spacecraft was created. The prototype is currently undergoing ground tests. Mass production is scheduled to begin in the first half of 2016”, – he said.

Abubekerov reminded that in Russia, unlike many Western countries, development and production of compact star sensors weighing 100-200 grams and having dimensions of 5-10 centimeters that can be installed at the nano- and micro-satellites, do not virtually exist.
