IITK, ISRO Ally for Micro Satellite
ISRO has in principle given clearance to the project and IIT scientists will visit ISRO, Bangalore later this month for a final commitment.
The micro satellite will give accurate information on the nation’s agricultural situation, transmit warnings about natural calamities like floods and famine and this would be largely helpful in disaster management. It will also act as a communicating device for other space satellites. It will barely weigh seven kilogram.
The satellite will be based on indigenous technology and the project will take about 18 months to complete. It will then be handed over to ISRO for launch.
