Launch: 17.09.2009 Baikonour (Soyuz-2.1b)

UGATUSAT is a microsatellite developed by UGATU (Ufa State Aviation Technical University) on a budget of 115 million rubles. The 30 kg satellite features a earth observation camera with 50 m ground resolution. Goals of the mission are to provide experience to the students in operating a satellite, to develop a satellite control system and to provide earth observation to monitor water and forrest resources.
