About Dhritvan Space Lab
DHRITVAN is SJCIT’s Satellite Ground Station which has been racing with the leading satellite Ground stations across the world to produce quality output in the form of weather images, telemetry data, de-noising algorithms, and exploring different areas of space science. The students working here would get an amazing experience to brainstorm their ideas and convert them into a real-time working environment.
DHRITVAN is one of the Amateur Satellite Ground Stations present across the country and is the first and the only SATELLITE GROUND STATION in Chickballapura district, Karnataka. It was established on 27-08-2022 by the Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering at SJC Institute of Technology, Chickballapura-562101. DHRITVAN has been achieving significant results by experimenting various domains in the field of space science and satellite study. The first project taken up by DHRITVAN was to receive satellite signals from open source weather satellite called as NATIONAL OCEANOGRAPHIC ATMOSPHERIC ADMINISTRATION (NOAA) by NASA. Emerging successful with this project DHRITVAN has a strong database of the weather images captured from NOAA satellites on daily basis. As of December 2022 DHRITVAN stands with more than 200 successful times of signal captured from satellite and over 1000 processed weather images.
