ISRO Launches 2 Educational Satellites To Help Student Community

ISRO Launches 2 Educational Satellites
The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) will soon launch two education satellites to help the student community. It has collaborated with the student community to develop and launch satellites.


The first student satellite to be launched by ISRO would be Pratham, which has been under development for some time by the IIT-Bombay.

The second satellites will be STUDSAT-2, which will be built by a consortium of multiple engineering colleges affiliated to Visveswaraya Technological University (VTU). The STUDSAT-2, according to the STUDSAT team, is a twin satellite mission that aims to demonstrate inter-satellite communication and increasing temporal resolution for remote-sensing applications.

STUDSAT-2 will be the second satellite to be launched by the consortium of engineering colleges after the STUDSAT-1, which was launched in 2010.

The objective of the STUDSAT-1 satellite was to see to it that educational institutions develop miniature satellites and communication link between the satellite and ground station.

The STUDSAT-2 will aim to demonstrate inter-satellite communication with twin nano satellites
