Five student-built satellites piggyback on PSLV-C51, soaring dreams of young minds

Bengaluru, Feb 28 (PTI) Five student-built satellites also
rode into space on board ISRO”s PSLV-C51 rocket from
Sriharikota spaceport on Sunday, giving wings to dreams of
young minds.
The rocket lifted off with Brazil”s Amazonia-1 as primary
satellite and 18 co-passenger payloads.
These small rideshare payloads included “Satish Dhawan
Satellite” (SDSAT) built by Chennai-based Space Kidz India, a
combination of three satellites “UNITYsat” and technology
demonstration satellite “SindhuNetra”.
The three satellites (UNITYsat) were designed and built
as a joint development by Jeppiaar Institute of Technology,
Sriperumpudur (JITsat), G. H. Raisoni College of Engineering,
Nagpur (GHRCEsat) and Sri Shakthi Institute of Engineering and
Technology, Coimbatore (Sri Shakthi Sat).
“UNITYsat is intended for providing Radio relay services”,
an official of Bengaluru-headquartered ISRO said.
SDSAT is a nano satellite intended to study the radiation
levels/space weather and demonstrate long range communication
technologies.
SindhuNetra was developed by students of Bengaluru-based
PES University, which was awarded the Rs 2.2 crore contract by
the Research Centre Imarat, part of the Defence Research and
Development Organisation (DRDO).
“This project by DRDO will help in identifying suspicious
ships through satellite imaging”, an official said. PTI RS
