About Team Antariksh
Initiated as an interdisciplinary team in 2015, Team Antariksh adopts its name from the Sanskrit equivalent, which means ‘space’. Team Antariksh has constantly been learning and testing its skills in every aspect of building a nanosatellite.
The team has been working every day with an inspiration to turn the dream that started in 2015 into a reality and has been constantly guided and monitored by various scientists from U. R. Rao Satellite Centre, ISRO (Formerly known as ISRO Satellite Centre) and faculty from RVCE. Team members have shown keen interest in taking the ambitious satellite program of India to a new height. The team started off with an unrivaled passion and belief that we can revolutionize the field of space research in India with the right guidance and support. Keeping this is as the goal, we at Team Antariksh hope to get a positive response from you to help us launch our rocket in the sky and put our satellite into orbit.
Team Antariksh is a space technology student club whose goal is to understand, disseminate and apply the engineering skills for innovation in the field of aerospace technology. The hundred-member strong team belonging from various engineering backgrounds is involved in designing payload for ISRO’s PS4 orbital platform, RVSAT-1 and experimental sounding rocket, ReSOLV-1.
Dream for Skies and Beyond...
To inspire young minds to take up challenging tasks in aerospace technology through interdisciplinary research and development.
- To develop a microbiological payload for ISROs PS4 Orbital Platform initiative.
- To design, develop and test a rocket for Spaceport America Cup, New Mexico, USA.
- To increase the participation of the students of RV College of Engineering® in Space Research and Technological development in India.
- To participate in the research and development of innovative scientific payloads for Sounding Rockets and Small Satellites.
- To design, develop and test a student developed rocket with self-landing capability.
Space Lab is our official workplace where we design, fabricate, test and integrate our nano-satellite components. Situated in the third floor of Interdisciplinary Research Centre (IDRC), RV College of Engineering®, the lab is fully furnished and equipped with state of the art Electronic components and Power supply. A clean room facility is expected to be constructed in the coming days. Full team meetings and discussion of theoretical concepts are conducted in the bench area. Discussion of future agenda and designing of various components related to different subsystems will be done in their respective tables. All engineers follow strict rules and ethics inside the lab. We follow the method of simulating our design first, optimizing it and finally implementing it on the hardware.
