We got contact with two satellites that the TalTech, in cooperation with DATEL, launched into orbit
"Hämarik appeared silent before, but we were able to send commands to the satellite with more amplified antennas and Hämarik started communicating. The main radio does not appear to be working, but the backup radio is talking and we have regular communication. The contact with the first satellite Koit is very weak and still early to tell how the satellite is doing or what exactly happened before", said Rauno Gordon, Space center manager at Tallinn University of Technology.
We attended at Smartec India 2020
Last week we were happy to share the benefits of the Datel ś Early Warning System SILLE at India´s 1st and largest smart exhibition for smart technologies- Smartec India 2020.
More than 10 thousand Smart Technologies Professionals participated in the virtual expo.
Our Country Head India - Ankit Bahl introduced the possibilities to monitor critical infrastructure remotely using data from space.
Student Satellite "Hämarik" is out in space!
On September 3rd Vega rocket carrying student satellite Hämarik launched from the space centre at Kourou. For now we know that the rocket has reached orbit and Hämarik has separated from the rocket.
Koit and Hämarik are 1U cube satellites (10 * 10 * 10 cm). The mission with which the student satellites will be tasked is primarily surveillance of the Earth using dithering and near-infrared cameras.
The Launch of TalTech student satellite Hämarik has been postponed due weather
The Launch of the Vega rocket with the student satellite Hämarik (Twilight) from French Guiana has been postponed because of high winds at high altitudes. The earliest launch opportunity is August, 17th.
Hämarik is the second of two student satellites that the TalTech - Tallinn University of Technology, in cooperation with DATEL, will launch into orbit. The Koit (Dawn) satellite launched on July 5 last year with a rocket from Russia.
