The Microspace-2 aerospace launch system is designed for launching nanosatellites into a wide range of orbit altitudes (500 to 1000 km) and inclinations (0°-98°).

The Microspace-2 aerospace launch system comprises an aviation segment (Su-27 upgraded fighter interceptor, ground support facilities, airfield support facilities and systems) and a space launch segment (solid-propellant launch vehicle, onboard launch complex, technical facilities, data acuisition and processing system).

Initial launch conditions:

Velocity: 500 m/s

Altitude: 15 km

Vehicle velocity angle with respect to local horizon: 10…40°
