JAIHIND-1S HINDUSTAN STUDENTS DESIGN WORLD'S LIGHTEST SATELLITE | Event Date: Monday, 18th, June 2018

JAIHIND-1S HINDUSTAN STUDENTS DESIGN WORLD'S LIGHTEST SATELLITE

JAIHIND-1S HINDUSTAN STUDENTS DESIGN WORLD'S LIGHTEST SATELLITE


Amarnath P, Giri Prasad T, Sudhi G and Hari Krishnan K J — the team leader, who are currently pursuing their first year B Tech in Aerospace Engineering built this satellite as part of 'Cubes in Space', a contest conducted by NASA's Colorado Space Grant Consortium and iDoodle learning, an educational platform. The contest requires students below the age of 18 to send in proposals for any experiment that can be sent into space or a near space environment.

The competition received thousands of applications from all across the world and only the best 100 were selected for flight. Moreover, JAIHIND-1S was the only 'satellite' that was selected. Not only is the satellite lightweight (33.36 grams), it also has high endurance. The main objective of the satellite is to check the weather conditions, trajectory and characteristics of nylon.

The satellite measures nearly 20 parameters like temperature, air pressure, humidity and vapour pressure for analysing weather conditions, gyro values for trajectory, stress and strain value for analysing nylon condition in microgravity. It also helps understand how phenomena like cloudbursts happen.
