Telkomsat Introduces "Nano Satellite Design" to Students

  • March 22, 2021
In order to provide accurate information regarding Aerospace and Remote Sensing System technology, Telkomsat with IEEE AES / GRSS and Telkom University (Tel-U) held a Workshop entitled "(Nano) Satellite Design" which was held online on March 19-20 2021.

Workshop on (Nano) Satellite Design is a training that learns how to design a small satellite that can perform various special services, such as constellation communications, earth observation, localization missions, or other constellation missions.

The training, which was held for 2 (two) days, was attended by more than 500 participants and presented 5 (five) professional speakers who are experts in their fields, especially regarding satellites and satellite design. One of which is the CTO Telkomsat, Dr. Anggoro K. Widiawan.

In his presentation, he explained about the small satellite which will be the bright future for the development of telecommunications and information in the future.

"The growth of the small satellite industry in the world is very fast. Evidenced by research conducted by Trends Market Research, the growth of this small satellite will grow up to 20.1% every year. Of course this will have a major impact on communication technology, imagery-based information / intelligence and site awareness." Said Dr. Anggoro.

In addition, Dr. Anggoro explained about payload communication which includes link budget and planning systems, multiple access and air interfaces, as well as engineering payload which of course will be useful for science, especially for students.

This workshop also discussed the introduction of mission design, satellite orbit, and physical environment in space. The speaker also explained about the small-bus design, electrical power, and structures in a spacecraft.

At the end of the event, participants were also introduced to optical remote-sensing technology (remote sensing) and radar that can be carried out by satellites.

Through this seminar, it is hoped that it can provide insight into satellite technology to the wider community and encourage the younger generation to master the latest technology that can benefit the progress of the nation and state.
