UGATUSAT is a Russian nanosatellite which was built, and will be operated by Ufa State Aviation Technical University (UGATU). The satellite will be used as a technology demonstrator, and for Earth observation. The development programme was budgeted at around 155M Roubles (£3.75M/$7.25M). Launch, atop a Kosmos-3M carrier rocket from LC-107 at Kapustin Yar is currently scheduled for 19 June. It will be launched as a secondary payload, with the primary payload consisting of six Orbcomm satellites. It has been reported that it may be transferred to a later launch, as a secondary payload on a Soyuz-2 rocket, to the first Persona satellite.
