Eight Joint Research Projects of IIT Delhi’s Space Technology Cell supported by ISRO

The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), Government of India, will support eight joint research projects initiated by Space Technology Cell (STC), IIT Delhi. ISRO will support projects under its RESPOND program for varying lengths of 1-3 years, IIT was informed.

These activities will be co-ordinated by ISRO scientists in the Space Applications Center (SAC), Liquid Propulsion Systems (LPSC), Semi-Conductor Laboratory (SCL), and Vikram Sarabhai Space Center (VSSC).

Eight research projects in which scientists from various ISRO and IIT Delhi institutions will work together include: Establishing an Integrated Land Land Assimilation System (ILDAS) to identify hydrologic overcrowding – this program will have widespread applications for water resources, including drought and flood forecasting and understanding the interaction of earth and air.

Classical Trajectory Monte Carlo Simulations of the Plasma Dynamics in electrode-less plasma thruster – This project aims to understand plasma energy in non-electrode electrodes, which are more energy efficient and longer than their electrode-based counterparts. Power generation schemes show higher fuel savings and lower energy than chemical energy schemes and are therefore more popular for deep space deployment.

The Sandwich Honey Stable Structures Analysis by Embedded Delamination – This project aims to build a complete basic structure to assess human migration and pressure in the integrated structures that are widely used in aerospace and space applications.

Indigenous Time-Based Warning System – This aims to provide the public with real-time warning, by installing information on sensory networks and repairing satellite products, thus providing a fast and reliable warning system that will ensure public and health infrastructure protection.

The Impact of Satellite Surveillance on Integrated Storm and Coastal Prediction System – The project aims to predict the real-time vulnerability of Indian coastal areas in tropical storms by using early satellite detection to minimize storm damage.

Numerical Simulator Manufacture of Micro-fabricated Electrospray Thrusters – Develop advanced computer tools to mimic the electrospray thrusters used to speed up the construction of such small spacecraft thrusters. This speaks to the need for a low-power system for transporting and controlling micro and nanosatellites at low cost.

Designing Special Sewing Machines and Meta-Heuristic Optimization – Special mirrors are widely used in space applications such as telescope lenses and window shields in space vehicles. The aim of the project is to develop new glass with improved thermal and thermal performance, which can withstand extreme cold or hot weather outside.

Low-Pressure Systems (LPSs) and their offline interactions with other scales in space using the Scale Energetics lens.

Space Technology Cell was established at IIT Delhi under a MoU signed between ISRO and IIT Delhi in November 2019 with the aim of strengthening research collaboration between the two organizations and making research projects focused on space technology space.
