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.
Datel will upgrade the local area cabling of more than 160 schools
As a result of the public procurement, HITSA- Estonian Information Technology Foundation of Education, signed framework agreements with 5 companies including Datel.
For almost 30 years, Datel has furnished classrooms and meeting rooms all over Estonia with presentation tools and computer equipment. This time we are upgrading the local area cabling of more than 160 schools.
The project will run until the end of 2022.
