Greetings from India!
DE VU2LRD, Rupesh Lad from College of Engineering Pune.
We are extremely glad to inform you that COEP's first satellite SWAYAM
developed by the students of the COEP Satellite Team shall be launched by
ISRO on 22 June, from Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SHAR), Sriharikota at 9am.
Swayam has a mass of 990 grams and dimensions of 10cm x 10cm x 11.35cm. It
will be launched by Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle PSLV-C34. After being
launched into its orbit, Swayam shall stabilize itself passively i.e.
without consumption of electric power. This concept of stabilization is the
first of its kind in India. It also provides a messaging service for the
Ground Stations in the HAM band. A functional Ground station is also
developed by team to communicate with Swayam and have sucvessfully received
data from 40+ satellites.
Swayam will downlink analog CW Morse beacon at frequency of 437.025 MHz
with a gap of 90 secs between successive beacons. I request you all to
receive the beacon data and report your reception details on our website -
Swayam TLEs will be uploaded post launch on our website mentioned above.
