ISRO On House Platform POEM-3


POEM-3 is a three-axis-attitude managed platform (Representational)


ISRO mentioned on Saturday its house platform, POEM-3, has efficiently achieved all its payload targets. POEM-3 (the PSLV Orbital Experimental Module-3) makes use of the spent PS4 stage of the PSLV-C58 rocket that launched XPoSat on January 1 this yr.

ISRO mentioned POEM-3 flew with 9 payloads from Vikram Sarabhai House Centre, Bodily Analysis Laboratory, academia, and house start-ups.

By the twenty fifth day in orbit, POEM-3, which the house company described as a novel and cheap platform, accomplished 400 orbits.

Over this era, every payload was put into operation, as deliberate and efficiency was demonstrated.

POEM-3 is a three-axis-attitude managed platform with energy technology and telecommand and telemetry capabilities, for supporting payloads, it was famous.

It’s predicted that POEM-3 will proceed orbiting for about 73 extra days earlier than re-entering the Earth’s ambiance.

“With the seemingly re-entry of POEM-3 within the subsequent 75 days, the PSLV-C58 XPoSat mission shall be leaving zero particles in house”, ISRO mentioned.

The experiments of ARKA200 (Xenon Primarily based Electrical Propulsion) and RUDRA (HAN primarily based Inexperienced Propellant Thruster) from Bellatrix, and LEAP-TD (Satellite tv for pc Bus with VHF/UHF Downlink & UHF Uplink – Examined utilizing IIST floor station) from Dhruva House have been accomplished.

Payload knowledge is collected recurrently for WeSAT (Photo voltaic irradiance and UV Index research) from LBS Institute of Know-how for Girls, BeliefSat0 (Novice Radio satellite tv for pc) from Okay J Somayia Institute of Know-how, RSEM (Radiation Shielding experiment) from TakeMe2Space, and DEX (interplanetary Mud particle experiment) from PRL for each orbit.

A 100W Gas Cell Energy System (FCPS), and Si-C primarily based Excessive Energy Li-Ion (10AH/32V) Battery from VSSC have been additionally demonstrated.

Thus all payload targets have been absolutely met, ISRO mentioned, including, in missions of POEM-1 to POEM-3, it has flown a complete of 21 payloads from numerous institutes and industries.

After reaching all targets, extra experiments with POEM-3 are deliberate for producing knowledge for future missions together with upcoming POEM configurations.

With the orbital decay and reentry of POEM-3 in three months, PSLV-C58 XPoSat mission shall be leaving zero particles in house, ISRO added.
