IITMSAT | FOUNDER + PROJECT MANAGER + SYSTEM ENGINEER
Jul 2012 – Sep 2016 | IIT Madras, Chennai
IITMSAT is a university satellite project at IIT Madras, conceived by a group of undergrad students in 2009. The science objective of the mission is to measure fluxes of high energy electrons and protons with temporal resolution better than previous missions. This data will help understand earthquake prediction studies.
Expected launch date: Q4 2017
• Developed key aspects of the design including mission requirements, system architecture, ConOps and environmental test plan.
• Designed, simulated and tested the satellite structure for launch environment.
• Guided more than 150 students in the course of 4 years for interdisciplinary short term projects. Guidance included defining project deliverable, monitoring progress and technical assistance.
• Managed developing and tracking project schedule, cost budget and identifying project roles for staff.
• Secured funding for the project by pitching to university alumni.
• Ideated and coordinated the construction of a one of its kind ’IIT Madras Space Lab’ with a 100,000 class clean room, electronics room and a ground station.
• Implemented a unique verification philosophy to develop a qualified system and ensure delivery within a short period. Worked with multiple vendors (50) with more than a dozen of them involved in developing customized solutions.
