The satellite ISRO launched into space yesterday carries a micro-satellite called ANUSAT, that was designed by Anna University, my alma mater.
ANUSAT is the first satellite developed by an Indian university (Anna University), which would demonstrate the technologies related to message storing and forward operations. University sources said scores of students and faculty from different streams had worked on this satellite for the last six years.
ANUSAT is a store-and-forward communication satellite that will help transfer confidential academic materials, including exam question papers, to prevent question paper leakages. It will also help monitor drought and wasteland, urban planning and other studies.
While my only contribution towards this effort was to not disturb anyone involved with it, it gives me and every other alumnus of Asia’s oldest engineering school immense pride at the achievement of our peers. Congratulations to all the people involved in this (some of whom I know personally)!
