On May 22, a round-table meeting (panel discussion) “Yuzhnoye SDO Satellite Technologies” was also held within the frames of International Conference. Modern technologies for creation of spacecraft of various purposes were presented  to its participants. An exposition of spacecraft (designed by Yuzhnoye SDO) was presented in SC Assembling and Testing Workshop. Chief Designer and Head of Spacecraft, Space Complexes and Systems Vladimir Maslyey has conducted a presentation of satellites for Earth surveillance, detailed and superdetailed  optical observation «Sich 2-1», «Sich-2М» and Sat4EO, satellites of scientific and technological purposes Microsat and CUBESAT, satellites of scientific and technological purposes  GS-1 и «AEROSOL-UA».

Vladimir Maslyey told about promising future projects of Spacecraft Design Office (DO). It is a complex of orbital space aircraft intended for multiple delivery (injection)  of  various loads into low near-Earth orbits and return of loads from those orbits; a multi-function transport space module which will be used for solution of tasks of orbital service maintenance of client  satellites, such as orbital inspection, transfer to given orbital positions, support in given orbital positions, re-injection into target orbits in case of injection into off-nominal orbits, transfer of  waste space systems into a disposal orbit; a platform of a geostationary communication satellite with a main Electrojet Propulsion System (EJPS)  which is intended for creation (on its base) of communication satellites that  function  in a  geostationary orbit.

In addition, technical excursions inside Yuzhnoye SDO territory and ethnographic trips were organized for participants of International Conference on that day

The work of the sessions will continue on May 23.
