Embedded systems betrokken bij recent wereldrecord in ruimtevaart

Nieuws - 27 februari 2017

Op 15 februari jl. vestigde ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization) een nieuw wereldrecord. Ze schoten, met succes, een raket met 104 satellieten aan boord de ruimte in. Een aantal wetenschappers van de TU Delft zijn betrokken bij dit project waaronder EWI onderzoekers Dr. Ranga Rao Venkatesha Prasad (Embedded Systems) en zijn PhD-student, Sujay Narayana.

The previous single launch record was at 37 satellites. Out of these 104 satellites, TUDelft scientists from EWI and LR were part of two nano-satellites INS-1A/B developed by ISRO providing Standard Positioning Systems (SPS) using GPS to both of them. PhD-student, Sujay Narayana, from ES, EWI, was able to design, develop, integrate and configure a SPS unit for nano-satellites within two months. SPS unit is also able to provide clock synchronisation  for the on board computer. Further, TUDelft team was also involved in receiving the first signals and also decode the data. The cooperation between ISRO and TUDelft has become much stronger and the teams are looking forward to work together on more challenging research in the near future.
