Private Space Company SPUTNIX was established in 2011. A company formed from the ScanEx satellite technology department.[2] This department has developed the orientation and stabilization system of microsatellite Chibis-M by order of Russian Space Research Institute.[3]

Since 2012, the scope of SPUTNIX has been the development of promising technologies for creating satellite platforms and the production of service systems for microsatellites and nanosatellites.

In 2013, the company SPUTNIX received a license from the Federal Space Agency to carry out space activities and began to create a microsatellite-technology demonstrator TabletSat-Aurora. On June 19, 2014, the first Russian privately-owned microsatellite Tabletsat-Aurora was launched into a Low Earth orbit on a Russian launch vehicle Dnepr rocket[4][5] according to the contract between SPUTNIX and ISC Kosmotras.[6][7][8][9][10]

In 2017, SPUTNIX developed the Orbiсraft-Pro satellite platform based on the international CubeSat standard. The OrbiСraft-Pro platform is a kit-design that allows to assemble nanosatellites of various configurations with the installation of the different typed of payload. Created on the basis of the OrbiСraft-Pro platform, the scientific and educational devices SiriusSat-1 and SiriusSat-2 were launched from the International Space Station on August 15, 2018.

SPUTNIX develops tools for aerospace education. SPUTNIX together with the Moscow Polytechnic University launched the competence Space Systems Engineering. They launched at the WorldSkills professional skills championship in 2016.

SPUTNIX has been a resident of the Skolkovo Innovation Center since 2011.[11]
