MOSCOW, March 3. /TASS/. Private Russian company Sputnix plans to start assembling micro satellites at the International Space Station (ISS), company’s representative Veronica Shteingardt said on Friday.

"We want to master quick assembly of satellites using standardized ordered components and create satellite structural elements using a 3D printer. We planned to send satellite components and the 3D printer to space and assemble a satellite at the ISS," she said.

The application of this experiment is under review and its timeframe has not yet been known, Shteingardt added.

Sputnix is the Russian private company that develops and manufactures high-tech microsatellite components and technologies and provides microsatellite-based services.
