A group of SRM University students bagged the second position in a competition last month, launching successfully CanSat, a model satellite to read atmospheric conditions. The competition titled Planetary Atmospheric Entry Vehicle was organised by The American Astronautical Society (AAS) and the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) at Texas, and sponsored by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), USA.
NASA sponsors design contests in hopes of interesting students in aeronautics and engineering careers. The challenge was to submit ideas and designs for aircraft or engine concepts and technologies that would assist in meeting the project's goals for more environmentally friendly aviation by the year 2020. Those goals include better fuel economy, fewer emissions, less noise and better performing airplanes. All of the non-U.S. winners came from India. First place went to two seniors at Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, for their engine concepts. Two seniors from Anna University in Chennai came in second for their blended wing body design. Third place went to four undergraduates from SRM University in Kattankulathur for their airliner concept.
Students and faculty members of SRM University have designed, developed and built a nano satellite, SRMSAT in collaboration with Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO). The objective of the satellite is to monitor and estimate CO2 and H2O in the atmosphere in the tropics globally using a grating spectrometer. The satellite structure is a cuboid, the dimensions are 302 X 302 X 302 mm3 and the mass of the satellite is 10.9 Kg. The electrical power subsystem is responsible for generating, conditioning and distributing electrical power to all the sub systems and the power generation is done from three body mounted solar panels. The On Board Computer (OBC) is interfaced with the payload, a space GPS, Magnetometer, Beacon, Transmitter and Receiver. The communication system involves transmitting data from the satellite to the ground station (downlink) at 437.5 MHz and the uplinking. The satellite has undergone rigorous tests at ISRO Satellite Centre, Bangalore and is qualified for the launch. The SRMSAT orbit is in a low inclined 20 degree orbit at a height of 867 KM. SRMSAT is launched on 12th October 2011 along with Megha Tropiques by the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV - C18) from SDSC SHAR Centre, Sriharikota.
