Mr. Aditya Vissam, Secretary of SVES visited the ECE Department Research laboratories on 12th Nov 2020 and interacted with the Faculty team of Dhruva space Laboratory
- Student and faculty must hold a HAM grade license
- Establish the ground station infrastructure as initial phase and enable broad understanding of training activities which further show impact on opportunities to the students
- Built ground station can track the amateur satellites orbiting in lower earth orbit and to establish a communication link with the satellites.
- To track the satellite, the ground station has to calculate and predict the pass of the satellite over the ground station and the calculations of the satellite’s position which can be based on known orbit parameter such as Two Line Element (TLE).
As part of initial phase, BVRIT in coordination with Dhruva space private limited will setup a complete Space Operations Centre (SOC) at Narsapur Campus. This SOC is essential for any satellite mission and it shall be capable of receiving, processing and displaying data from existing satellites. It shall include hardware including transceivers, antennas, workstations with data walls and associated hardware. The hardware shall be augmented with a Mission Control and Operations software that can be used as-is or modifiable with add-ons to suit future mission requirements.
