The recent trend in satellite technology is the deployment of a constellation of satellites that are smaller in size and weigh less than conventional single-body satellites.
We made sure that every part of the mission was covered thoroughly. This ensured that the femto satellite would work in theory, a required outcome for this internship.
Femto-satellites are of different sizes (nano, micro, cube) and their functionality is highly dependent on the topology and remote sensing technology embedded in them.
Our mentors- Mr. Akshay Choudhari, Mr. Vishnuvardhan Shaktibala and Ms. Rashika SN played a huge part in motivating the team towards the correct path.
A Glance at Fun Sessions
The aim of our research work is to provide a theoretical design of a cluster of distributed femto satellites along with the deployer (hub design) for monitoring forest fire using Remote Sensing .The increasing incidences of unanticipated forest fires are a growing cause of imbalances in various aspects of the biosphere. The use of satellites to detect forest fires at the earliest possible time helps avoid unwanted negative effects of such disasters. Due to their small size and cost, femtosatellites in particular have great potential in preventing disasters. The TabSat equipped with imaging payload and ADCS is effective in monitoring and imaging applications. The femto satellite hub and the deployer are both contained in a 6U CubeSat structure along with a proposed propulsion system. The use of an imaging payload and ADCS on the PCB of the femtosatellite highlights the significance of the TabSat, simultaneously pointing towards the implementation of more efficient trade-offs between parameters such as cost and weight, for the upcoming mission advancements.
