On July 21, 2022, Russian cosmonaut Oleg Artemyev and European Space Agency astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti are expected to deploy ten small spacecraft (SVSU-55 No. 1 & R-390) from the International Space Station during extravehicular activity (VKD-54) ( SWSU No. 5), SWSU-55 No. 2 (SWSU No. 6), SWSU-55 No. 3 (SWSU No. 7), SWSU-55 No. 4 (SWSU No. 8), SWSU-55 No. 5 “(SWSU No. 9), “SWSU-55 No. 6” (SWSU No. 10), “SWSU-55 No. 7 & R-390” (SWSU No. 11), “SWSU-55 No. 8” (SWSU No. 12), “Tsiolkovsky-Ryazan 1” and “Tsiolkovsky-Ryazan 2” under the program of the space experiment “Radioskaf”.

Satellites of the SWSU series were developed at the Research Institute of Space Instrumentation (part of Roscosmos) and Radioelectronic Systems of the South-Western State University (SWSU). The main developer of the SWSU series satellites is Shilenkov Yegor Andreevich (UB3WCL), Candidate of Technical Sciences, Director of the Center for Space Instrumentation, Advanced Research and Development, Southwestern State University.

On February 17, 2022, the SWSU-55 devices No. 1-6 were delivered to the International Space Station with the Progress MS-19 cargo ship . The satellites SWSU-55 No. 7-8, Tsiolkovsky-Ryazan 1 and Tsiolkovsky-Ryazan 2 were delivered to the International Space Station on June 03, 2022 by Progress MS-20 TGC .

MKA “SWSU-55 No. 1 & R-390” (SWSU No. 5) and “SWSU-55 No. 7 & R-390″ (SWSU No. 11) joint development of scientists from the South-Western State University, Ruzaevsky branch of the Saransk Polytechnic technical school” and schoolchildren from the Center for additional education of children “UNITER” Ruzaevsky district under the leadership of Pashkov Dmitry Aleksandrovich (R4UAB).

The mission of satellites of the SWSU series:
– creation of a peer-to-peer information network. Retransmission and parallel transmission to the ground monitoring station is organized within the network.
– study of the Earth’s magnetic field.
– measurement of radio noise in outer space.
– transmission of photos (SSTV) and voice messages (AUDIO) to radio amateurs around the world. Each satellite will have its own personal phrase, which is translated into 8 different languages.

The Tsiolkovsky-Ryazan 1/2 satellites carry special radio transmitting equipment designed to perform the scientific task of calibrating the sensitivity of the radio telescopes of the Pushchino Radio Astronomy Observatory of the Astro-Space Center of the Physical Institute. P.N. Lebedev of the Russian Academy of Sciences (PRAO ACC FIAN, www.prao.ru ). Also, these satellites can emit specialized radio signals to study the effects of radio wave propagation through the ionosphere using radio receiving equipment, which is supposed to be manufactured at the Russian State Technical University and used as part of the PRAO ACC FIAN radio telescopes.

The space experiment “Radioskaf” is carried out as part of the student program for space education of the youth of Russia and implements projects for the development, preparation and launch of experimental ultra-small spacecraft for various purposes in the process of extravehicular activity of cosmonauts. The director of the experiment “Radioskaf” – RSC “Energia” them. “S.P. Koroleva”.
