Announcing: Consultation on Nano Satellite for Deep Sea Fishers: Design, Fabrication and Launch

Greetings from IEEE ADSF SIGHT!

Communication and navigation are major challenges for Indian Deep Sea Fishers who fish in different parts of the Indian Ocean that are out of range of most existing communications channels.

In order to explore the possibilities of satellite technology for the use of fishers, IEEE ADSF SIGHT, ADSGAF and Space Kidz India are jointly organizing a consultation on Nano Satellite Design, Fabrication and Launch. The consultation will bring together eminent scientists, engineers and experts form brainstorming about the feasibility of use of nanosatellites for the use of deep sea fishers, particularly for communication and navigation purposes.

The consultation will be held at Russian Centre of Science and Culture, Chennai, #74, Kasthuri Ranga Road, Behind Fortune Hotel.

The date: 11th December 2017, 10.30 AM to 04.30 PM.

We invite participation from a wide range of interested parties. If interested in attending, please contact Mr. Vincent Jain, former chair IEEE ADSF SIGHT, at 9585615351 or
