KL Deemed to be University successfully launches its First Satellite – KLSATHyderabad, September 29, 2023: KL Deemed to be University proudly declares the profitable launch of its first satellite tv for pc, KLSAT, from its Green Fields campus in Vijayawada. This momentous occasion occurred on September 27, 2023, at 6:30 AM and represents a big development in atmospheric measurement know-how. This miniature satellite tv for pc, 1U CubeSat outfitted with atmospheric sensors, reached an altitude of 28 kilometers (92,000feet), gathering priceless knowledge for analysis functions. During the touchdown course of, it deployed its parachute to management the satellite tv for pc’s velocity, and as anticipated safely landed inside an roughly 80-kilometer radius. At 10:30 AM, alerts from the satellite tv for pc have been tracked close to Vutukuru.

The KLSAT venture is an endeavour aimed toward advancing the understanding of atmospheric measurement know-how in a given particular areas. It employs a fancy system of interconnected parts that work seamlessly collectively to seize and transmit essential knowledge, contributing to pioneering scientific analysis on Earth’s ambiance.

The success of this mission hinges on the Telemetry layer, a elementary part answerable for communication and knowledge transmission. This layer includes three very important parts: KLAP, SpaceSat Tracker Module, and GPS Module. KLAP, developed in-home at KL Deemed to be University, performs a pivotal position in guaranteeing clean knowledge transmission and floor communication. The Ground Station Antennas, additionally meticulously designed in-home, function at six frequencies throughout HF, UHF, and UHF bands. KLAP, a telemetry module, and SpaceSat Tracker are {hardware} modules which are indigenously developed, together with onboard computer systems, battery administration, and different communication modules. Ground stations are established as a part of the general mission operations and observations.

Applauding the efforts of KLSAT group and University neighborhood,” Er. Koneru Satyanarayana, President of KL Deemed to be University stated, “I’m profoundly delighted to witness the profitable launch of KL SAT, a testomony to the relentless pursuit of information and innovation that defines KL Deemed to be University. This achievement signifies not solely a big milestone within the subject of atmospheric measurement know-how but additionally a large leap ahead for our establishment. We have at all times been devoted to pushing the boundaries of scientific discovery and technological development.   As we attain enterprise into area, KLSAT will undoubtedly present us with invaluable insights into Earth’s ambiance. This mission represents the start of a brand new period for our college and a brighter future for scientific analysis. I’m immensely pleased with our college’s achievements, and I look ahead to witnessing the discoveries that KLSAT”.

Dr. Okay. Sarat Kumar, Professor and Director, Research & Development, PR served because the KLSAT Mission Director and Chief of Operations, whereas Dr. Okay Ch Sri Kavya, Professor and Director, assumed the position of Chief Technology Officer. Twenty-two B.Tech college students from Electronics and Communication  and Mechanical Engineering programs devoted six months to software program coding, {hardware} integration, meeting, testing, and the ultimate module.

The complete venture obtained proud funding and unwavering assist from Er. Koneru Satyanarayana, Hon’ble President of KL Deemed to be University and the University’s administration. Dr. G Pardha Saradhi  Varma, the University Vice-Chancellor, Dr. AVS Prasad, Pro Vice-Chancellor, Dr. N. Venkatram, Pro Vice-Chancellor, and different esteemed authorities prolong their heartfelt congratulations to the devoted group members who’ve been instrumental in making this mission attainable.
