The stage of tests developed in Samara plant for small satellites

May 15 completed the first stage of the fire test developed "TsSKB-Progress" propulsion systems (distribution of pulses rods) for small satellites.
The system of distribution of pulses rods (SWEET) is a promising propulsion system and is designed for orbital maneuvers of the spacecraft, its orientation and stabilization.
SWEET designed and made by specialists of "Samara Space Center Progress" block-based tanks and reinforcement of their own making with the use of liquid rocket engines developed by Institute of Engineering and KBhimmash. For "TsSKB-Progress" is the first experience of creating the propulsion system for small weight and size of spacecraft.
The tests were based on the test KBhimmash them. AM Isaev. The second stage firing tests SWEET will be held in September this year, after which it is planned to conduct flight tests in the small satellite remote sensing to develop "Progress Samara Space Center."
