SWAYAM is a 1-U picosatellite (CubeSat) developed by the undergraduate students of College of Engineering, Pune. The structural design of the satellite, design of it's electronic and control systems as well as the manufacturing of the satellite was carried out by the students. The project was completed over a span of 8 years and more than 200 students worked on it. The satellite is placed in low earth orbit (LEO) around the Earth at a height of 515 km. Payload is point to point packet communication with which a user can send and receive messages from one point to other point on the earth. Scientific objective of the satellite is to demonstrate passive attitude control to stabilise and appropriately orient the satellite. This technique is being used for the first time on an Indian Satellite. Another objective is to provide Low earth orbit channel characterisation in UHF HAM band.
