Nanosatellite "PolyITAN-2" was developed at the National Technical University Ukraine "Igor Sikorsky Kiev Polytechnic Institute" designing a nanosatellite of small size for space research, development of new structural and technical solutions, application of modern hardware components with low energy characteristics, high data characteristics, small Sizes and low cost for a wide range of payloads, a team of scientists, so that Ukraine can enter and remain stable A new participant in the international market of scientific and technological nanosatellites and space modules. In addition, this goal is aimed at solving a number of research, educational, scientific and technological tasks:

  • Designing of modern laboratories for practical training of highly qualified professionals for the rocket and space industry of Ukraine;
  • Carrying out of test flights of devices of thermoregulation, solar batteries and amateur radio communication systems built in KPI them. Igor Sikorsky;
  • Functional testing of receivers of standard signals of the GPS / GLONASS satellite navigation system;
  • The construction of navigation and orientation systems for their further application in space modules;
  • Development of a data exchange network and an on-board computer built on the basis of modern technologies in the field of electronics
  • Participation in the international space program to study the thermosphere layer as the least studied layer of the Earth's atmosphere.
