Research and Innovation

Atharva satellite ground station

atharva satellite ground station
 Atharva Satellite Ground Station is a Satellite Technology research project undertaken by students of Atharva College of Engineering. Started in 2008, the project has been an integral part of the subsystem of IIT Bombay's Student Satellite project 'Pratham’. The project team has achieved a substantial part of their objectives. They have also ventured into allied domains.

The Project setup is on the 5th floor of the college and has a control room with fully functional circuitry which can track various satellites and carry out complex signal processing of satellite signals. Equipment's / Capabilities include 2 Crossed Yagi antennas with 145 MHz central frequency and 2 Crossed Yagi antennas with 437 MHz central frequency - 10 dB gain for receiving the signal transmitted by the satellite. The setup also includes a Professional Weather Station for real time weather monitoring. Adding to it is the Vertical Dipole Antenna tuned on the Amateur VHF; UHF Bands for terrestrial communication. The entire Ground- Station is capable of Remote Access: All satellite tracking features can be remotely operated over a secure internet link. Besides satellite communication, the setup can also serve as a communication base during emergency situations.

The project was formally inaugurated in a grand Wireless Technology & Satellite Communication Symposium in March 2010 by successfully establishing communication with Delhi via the VO-52 satellite. The setup was visited by Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris (IPGP), France.

Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Centre

Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Centre was established in Atharva College of Engineering, Malad (west) in 2012.
