Centre for Space Science and Technology Education in Asia and the Pacific (CSSTEAP)
Indian Institute of Remote Sensing (IIRS) ISRO Satellite Centre (ISAC)
In small satellites, payloads with a mass of just a few kilograms, are able to perform measurements that were done with tens of kilograms a few years ago. The fast and cheap development of microsatellites also makes them a suitable platform for technology evaluation and provides opportunities to test new systems in space with low cost, less risk and short time. Over the last few years, with ISRO’s support and guidance, some of the Indian Universities have made their own satellites which were launched by ISRO. To share this expertise in the area of small satellite missions of 100 kg class or below, CSSTEAP is organizing a two-week course from 18-29 November 2013 on IIRS Campus, Dehradun, India for professionals, technologists and researchers of Asia Pacific countries.
- To create an awareness about small satellites, space technology, and opportunities
- To disseminate knowledge required for small satellites technology
- To sensitize professionals in developing, launching and utilizing the benefits of small satellites
- Exposure to infrastructure required for small satellite development
