Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has decided to fund $39,325 to Ranchi based scientist for researching and developing the temperature sensors for aerospace application.
The application would be utilized in missile or rocket system for determining its location in space, TOI reported Sunday.
Dr Vijay Nath, professor at the department of electronics and communication engineering at Birla Institute of Technology of Mesra would presently be working on a project called design of ultra low power CMOS (complementary metal oxide semiconductors) temperature sensors for aerospace application.
The letter issued by ISRO, Department of Space stated that the project duration shall be three years that comprises two year for chip design and one year for fabrication in HCL, Chandigarh. About $29,179 will be released as the first year's expenditure of the project.
The ultra low power CMOS temperature sensors are procured from Belgium and once the technology is developed indigenously it would revolutionize various projects that require temperature sensors, Nath added.
"Every research project has its own secrecy but broadly the project deals in developing design and technology for manufacturing chips that would find place in the missiles to send real time information about its exact location in space," he said.
Nath is a design team member of very large scale integration (VLSI), the process of creating an integrated circuit (IC) by combining thousands of transistors into a single chip. He has been working on the topic for more than three years.
"I had applied for seeking assistance from ISRO almost three years ago and after a long question answer series with the experts of the domain in ISRO final approval was given," he said.
CMOS chip would be working less than one Volt. Moreover, it is based on difference in temperature in various spheres in space the chip would wirelessly transmit information about the exact location of missile from space for necessary computation on ground, Nath said.
The Indian Space Research Organization has awarded an $82 million contract to Raytheon Company to modernize the Indian air navigation system. Raytheon will build the ground stations for the GPS-Aided Geosynchronous Augmented Navigation System, and ISRO will provide the space segment and additional ground equipment
Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) launched Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) carrying a replacement satellite for Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System (IRNSS) failed after reaching sub-geosynchronous transfer orbit Thursday. The IRNSS-1H constellation or NavIC, program was launched on schedule from the Second Launch Pad late evening Thursday
The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is readying to conduct air-breathing propulsion experiment next week using its RH-560 rocket fitted with a supersonic combustion ramjet (Scramjet) engine. The air-breathing propulsion test would take place on August 28, The Hindu reported Thursday
The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) achieved a milestone today with successful launch of record 20 satellites carried by its flagship rocket in a 26-minute flight from Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh. The 320-tonne Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) carried 17 foreign small satellites from Canada, Indonesia, Germany and the US but the main passenger was a 727-kg Indian earth observation satellite called Cartosat, which can take high-resolution images
The Indian Indian Space Research Organisation has successfully launched a Reusable Launch Vehicle Technology Demonstrator mission Monday. The flight began at 07:00 Indian Standard Time on 23 May (01:30 UTC), resulting in a successful launch for the winged, reusable space plane that conducted a suborbital mission to gather in-flight data
India launched a satellite today to set up the Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System (IRNSS), similar to the US GPS with the launch of IRNSS-1G, the last in the constellation of seven satellites. When the IRNSS-1G becomes operational in about a month's time, the IRNSS would offer services like terrestrial and marine navigation, disaster management, vehicle tracking and fleet management, navigation aide for hikers and travellers, visual and voice navigation for drivers
