Conference Topics

      Results of scientific experiments on automatic space vehicles (fluid physics, space physics, biology, biotechnology, thermophysical aspects, other fields)
      Implementation of scientific programs on automatic space vehicles and small satellites (automatic space vehicles and small satellites design, scientific hardware and software design, telecommunications network, orbital navigation and control aspects, hardware for separating small satellites, other themes).
      Influence of space disturbing factors on scientific experiments (microgravity, electromagnetic fields, Earth's atmosphere, space exposure conditions, space debris and natural micro particles, external environment of space vehicle).
      Opportunities of piggy back launching and carrying out experiments on orbital stages and busters
        Advanced researches in space and new space technologies, education space projects.
