Was commissioned ILV Soyuz-2.1V The program has been fully implemented
Artist's view of the Soyuz-2.1V launch
28 December at 16.30 Moscow time from the launch complex of the platform 43 from the Plesetsk cosmodrome starting calculations Forces Aerospace Defense with the participation of specialists of rocket-space industry Russia conducted a successful launch (ILV) Soyuz-2.1V with block removal (BV) Volga and SC Stork.

After separation from the regular second stage of the launch vehicle (LV) head unit comprising SC Stork and block elimination continued autonomous flight. Inferring the spacecraft to the target orbit was performed by operating the propulsion unit excretion.
At 18.10 MSK spacecraft nominally separated from BV Volga on the target orbit.
Soyuz-2 Phase 1B-two-stage booster easy class, developed by FSUE SRP TsSKB Progress (Samara). Designed to launch satellites with launch complexes LV Soyuz-2. Booster developed on the basis of Soyuz-2 Phase 1B, with the removal of the side blocks, install the central unit of the engine NK - 33A engine and steering RD0110R ( development of "KBKhA"). Second stage unit borrowed from the block with completion stage 3 Soyuz-2 stage 1B . With the Soyuz-2.1V, a block elimination Volga.

A Russian government Soyuz 2-1v rocket with a Volga upper stage will launch with the AIST student-built microsatellite and SKRL 756 calibration spheres. The Soyuz 2-1v rocket and Volga upper stage will be making their first flight. The new rocket is a smaller version of the Soyuz launch vehicle without strap-on boosters.
AIST student-built microsatellite
Spacecraft Stork developed by the Samara State Aerospace University. Korolev and FSUE "SRP" Samara Space Center. SC is designed for educational, scientific, technical and experimental problems working out means of measuring the geomagnetic field and compensation microgravity environment on board. SC weight-50 kg.
