RF Wireless LAN for Satellites – Funded by ISRO In satellites, presently, bulky wired harness is used for data communication among various packages. Harness preparation is an involved activity consuming lot of time and effort in addition to large weight amounting to almost 20% of the satellite mass. Project is to study, design, simulate and develop RF LAN for interconnecting various packages onboard spacecraft without bulky wired harness.
Study. design and development of 4π Steradian Sun sensor – Funded by RCI/DRDO 4π Steradian Sun Sensor ( Four Pi Sun Sensor – FPSS) are used onboard LEO imaging satellites for sun pointing initially after launch. Subsequently FPSS is used to recover from the loss of earth lock if happens at any time in orbit. Project involves Study, design and development of the 4π Steradian Sun Sensor.
Study, design and development of Magnetic torquer – Funded by RCI/DRDO Magnetic torquers, often called as Magnetic Torquer Rods (MTR) are mainly used in Satellite Attitude Control Systems (ACS) as a control actuator to generate desired controllable torques. Magnetic Torquers are regularly used in Satellites for momentumdumping i.e. de-saturation of momentum wheels and reaction wheels. Project involves study, design and development of Magnetic torquer for LEO satellites.
Study of RF Communication System configuration for LEO satellites – Funded by RCI/DRDO Satellite communication system involves reception of carrier modulated with tele-commands from ground station and transmitting a carrier with telemetry and payload data to ground station using appropriate antenna systems. The project involves study and development of a configuration for TT&C and data transmitting systems of LEO satellites.
