Russia to develop small satellite server

Moscow, Nov 29 (Prensa Latina) The Russian space equipment provider RuVDS and the "Small Space Devices" company will develop a satellite server, whose size will be five cubic centimeters, sources linked to the project reported.

According to the director of RuVSD, Nikita Tsaplin, this will be the first device in history to provide a hosting service directly in orbit, after the signing of a joint agreement on the development of a server satellite.

Tsaplin specified that the minisatellite will be developed on the Tinysat platform of the Small Space Devices company, and will start operating no later than next year.

The format of a mini-satellite was chosen for the project, that is, a small device measuring five by five centimeters, whose launch into orbit is 10 times cheaper than launching larger satellites.

It is assumed that the device will be used to host web pages.

The choice of the portals to be hosted alternatively will take place after the device has been put in orbit, Tsaplin said, and added that the module will also be able to perform scientific and educational tasks.

There is even the possibility of studying the operation of the equipment that acts as a server, in conditions of weightlessness, high radiation and extreme temperatures, he highlighted.
