We present method for in-flight signal processing and calibration of a strap-down inertial navigation system (SINS) for the information mini-satellites at low Earth orbit. We have applied the SINS correction based on the signals of a sun-magnetic system and consider the problem at a long-term forecasting of the mini-satellite's orbital motion.
