EduSat began as a collaboration between the University of Rome and the Italian Space Agency and now includes the Morehead State University Space Science Center and Kentucky Space. The 153 institutions include 87 Nursery, 15 Primary, 33 High Schools, 14 Junior College and four Degree Colleges. While the femtosats will not be released on the first mission, the deployment system that will ultimately deploy them will be tested. The second mission on board each satellite is aimed at space education and outreach. It will also monitor and evaluate the content and the quality of the lessons provided. Global revisit opportunities of at least every 2 days are possible 70% of the Earth's surface can be revisited in one day.
Hence, only a listing of the experiments can be given at the time except for the sun sensor. It has a multiple spot beam antenna with 1. These Terms apply in full force and effect to your use of this Website and by using this Website, you expressly accept all terms and conditions contained herein in full. EduSat carries five Ku-band transponders providing spot beams, one Ku-band transponder providing a national beam and six Extended C-band transponders with national coverage beam. It strongly reflects India's commitment to use space technology for national development, especially for the development of the population in remote and rural locations. In addition, a back-up S-band channel may be used with a downlink rates of 38.
During its first 30 days on orbit, EduSat will test an orbital deployer designed to release femto-class satellites. Each satellite is equipped with a 0. There, it will be co-located with and. Thank you very much for visiting Gunter's Space Page. They are known as Class Room End. There is lesson variation, and the lessons are rich due to audio and visual components.
NiCd batteries are being used for energy storage. Efforts are on to re-establish link but at this point it remains incommunicado. In case of any discrepancy in our data, the original affidavit should be considered accurate. Another target of this program is to develop a small space mission for low cost scientific experiments and technological tests in orbit. It has a multiple spot beam antenna with 1.
The initial establishment of ground infrastructure and the software needed for the distance education programmes is well under way. For the navigation satellites, see. A statement made available to journalists in Akure yesterday by the Head of Information Unit of the institution, Mr. The major phases of the flight included the first stage burn-out at 104 seconds, the strap on burn-out at 150 seconds, ignition of the second stage at 150 seconds, heat shield separation at an altitude of 115 km and 227 seconds into the flight, second stage burn-out at 288 seconds, ignition of the 12. Name: Education Satellite Status: Theme: Health Workers' Education Region and Country: Maharashtra, India Partners: Beneficiaries: Funding Need: Budget: Duration: Contact: Programme Activities: This programme will enhance knowledge of diarrhoea management by facilitating lectures and training courses which will allow for dialogue and interaction of hundreds of people simultaneously.
Sun sensor experiment: The sun sensor payload was designed and developed by high school students of several high schools in Italy. Telephone lines are not required because the system uses the satellite beam. Lectures are also recorded for the later viewing by students. Meanwhile, the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Subject Experts deliver lectures live. Its designated orbital slot is 74 degree East longitude in the.
This will enable information to be broadcast in relevant local languages — India has 18 official languages and over 400 dialects. Thus, the students can benefit from experts located in various Educational Institutions across the country. This attitude system exploits a permanent magnet which produces the restoring torque and hysteresis rods for oscillation damping. The civic body will also train its teachers to use the Edusat facility and will be launching this programme in another six months. With Edusat, common lesson plans could be delivered by experts and the local teacher could be the facilitator, so that same standard of education can be maintained for all classes.
The students are also involved in the development of a small payload sun sensor which will be hosted on board EduSat. There are 5 regional and 1 national spot beams of Ku band and 1 national spot beam of Extended C band. The pilot project will provide health training, of all types, on the network. Students from our university have taken benefit of such courses. Furthermore, a cylindrical shield protects the sun sensor from solar radiation coming from undesirable directions. The output voltages of the cells vary with the density of the solar radiation, and can be used to set the different attitude angles of the satellite with respect to the sun.
There, it will be co-located with and. Many more are being added with the purpose of providing quality higher education to the remote areas through satellite network. These femtosats will be among the smallest satellites ever launched. It is powerful enough to cover the whole Indian Sub-continent with its high power transponders of Ku band and C band. The internal space is divided by vertical panels Al+Al sandwich structure , which host subsystems hardware and electronic boards.
The participant should like the page in order to join the contest 5. EduSat is an innovative Microsatellite weighing about 24 pounds and about the size of a small microwave oven, that will be launched in July 2011 from Yasny Russia on a Dnepr Rocket. It was mainly intended to meet the demand for an interactive satellite-based distance education system for the country. It will use the virtual classroom concept to offer education to children in remote villages, quality higher education to students in areas without access to good technical institutes, adult literacy programmes and training modules for teachers.
