Attitude Determination and Control Subsystem or ADCS is responsible for the orientation and control of the satellite.
The Communications and Ground Station Subsystem or COMMS is responsible for the exchange of information to and fro from the satellite. There are three paths of communication that we facilitate.
|Frequency||145.89 MHz||145.89 MHz||437.8 MHz|
|Data Rate||12.5 bps||2400 bps||1200 bps|
The Electrical Power Subsystem or EPS is responsible for harnessing, conditioning, storing and distributing power on-board the satellite. Parts include:
Any satellite system requires a large amount of data to be acquired and processed which is done by the On-board Data Handling Subsystem or ODHS. The subsystem deals with a variety of tasks that include working with both hardware as well as software. The subsystem also works on the various algorithms that are required to effectively process and use the acquired data and also ensure that the tasks of the satellite run in an ordered manner.
Some of the important elements in the On-board Data Handling Subsystem include:
For a satellite, payload simply means the mission of the satellite. Parikshit has two payloads:
The structures, thermal and mechanisms subsystem or STMS is responsible for designing, fabricating and assembling the final structure of the satellite. While doing so, the subsystem ensures that the structure can withstand all launch loads and vibrations, as well as exposure to space radiation during the life of the mission. The primary objectives of the subsystem are:
