Published on 18 June, 2016 at 12:37 pm By

Among others, 176 students from the College of Engineering Pune (CoEP) will anxiously be watching the clock on June 20 when the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) launches a rocket carrying their nano-satellite, Swayam.

Swayam is India’s first pico-satellite that has been developed by students with a small corpus fund of Rs. 50 lakh.

The students of CoEP have been working on Swayam since 2008 and developed a nano-satellite that weighs less than 1 kilo.

 



Swayam will be launched from ISRO’s Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota and would be part of the 22 satellites to be launched under one mission – a move which in itself will create history.

The main objective of building Swayam is to establish end-to-end communication even in the most remote corners of the world.

Working for years to build a perfect pico-satellite, the teams installed solar panels on all its six faces, which, in turn, charges the lithium-ion battery that powers all systems within the satellite.

Swayam makers also came up with a noise-cancellation software for the satellite, and the communication that would be conducted with the satellite would be done in Morse code. To keep end-to end communication constant, Swayam would revolve around the earth six times a day.

Swayam is not the only student-made satellite that would be launched by ISRO during this mission.

Another nano satellite called Satyabamasat is part of the mission. It has been developed by students from the Sathyabama University in Chennai.

It must be noted that designing and building a nano-satellite is not an easy task and poses a formidable challenge for makers.

The launch is scheduled for 9 am on June 20, 2016.
