Twin Nano Satellite project to prove Inter Satellite Communication, De-Orbiting Mechanism, AIS (Automatic Identification System) & Beacon Data Relay.
STUDSAT-1 inspired students at NMIT and other institutes to take up the challenge of designing and building STUDSAT-2. This second satellite provides excellent learning opportunities for students and faculty members.
The Project STUDSAT 2 is being executed by a consortium of colleges, ISRO and few research agencies. The leadership is provided by Dr. S Sandya Prof & HOD, ECE, NMIT.
Project STUDSAT-2 is India’s Twin Nano Satellite Mission. It hosts four payloads namely AIS for ship Identification and Tracking, Inter-Satellite Link (ISL) to prove in orbit Communication between satellites , Drag Sail Mechanism to de-orbit the satellite at the end of mission and a Beacon data relay for HAMs.
