Thanjavur: S Riyasdeen, a second-year student of Sastra University who has been studying Mechatronics engineering, has won the Cubes in Space global design competition.

The young innovator has created 37mm sized FEMTO satellites VISION SAT v1 and v2 with a payload of 30 mm weighing 33 gms which made the world’s lightest FEMTO satellite. Not only he used polyetherimide thermoplastic resins, but he also deployed 3D printing technology to create the satellite.

The competition was conducted by the National Aeronautical Space Agency (NASA) and had 1,000 participants from 73 different countries. It was held for students between the age of 11 and 18.

Mentored by INRO Labs, Chennai, his satellites are designed to record 17 parameters with 11 sensors, and VISION SAT v1 shall be part of the SR-7 NASA Rocket Mission which is expected to be launched from the Wallops Flight Facility, Virginia, the USA in June 2021. SAT v2 shall be part of the NASA Balloon Mission RB-6 scheduled for launch in August 2021.

“The satellites are named as VISON SAT v1 and v2 and both are of 37 mm in size and the payload is only around 30 mm with 33 grams weight and thus it has become the world’s lightest Femto satellites,” Riyasdeen was quoted as saying by News18.

Riyasdeen will get an incubation grant of Rs 5 Lakh from The SASTRA-TBI in 3D printing and Internet of Things to fulfil his dreams of establishing a successful start-up, SASTRA vice-chancellor S Vaidhyasubramaniam said.
