Interplanetary space probe MARS-96 during the mission preparations. The SLED-2 is installed at the very end of the solar panel.
The launch campaign of the MARS-96 interplanetary space probe.
Transport, elevation and launch of the PROTON-K launcher with MARS-96 probe on board was performed without any problems.
Virtual model of the MARS-96 interplanetary probe. A tetrahedronic orientation of the four sensors of the SLED-2 (each pair has the same relative angle) required its installation on the end of the solar panel, to exclude any object of the probe from the SLED-2 field of view.
