AbstractIn the article innovative approaches to small-scale space vehicles development on an example of the Earth remote sensing satellite "MONITOR-E", created on the basis of the unified space platform (UKP) "Yakhta" are described. Correctness of the put in pawn and chosen principles and the constructive-technological decisions in working out of the considered objects is confirmed. Characteristics of the "MONITOR-E" and UKP "Yakhta" are given. The application of small-scale space vehicles in space activity is described.
