“Learn About Ground Station and Satellite Tracking”
Space technology is a truly multi-disciplinary field with huge potential in the coming days. However, the access to these technologies is constrained and difficult. It is important that the student community, research community and space enthusiasts get access to some of these technologies. This will pave the way for new breed of space engineers and researchers.
In this regard, Antariksha Labs Pvt Ltd is working on various initiatives to provide low-cost access to the exciting field of space science and technology. Please visit our official webpage to know more about us and our activities.
Antariksha Labs has tied-up with PES University, Bangalore to offer a unique opportunity to give a first level real-time exposure to field of satellite tracking and ground station components.
