VISION:f To Discover, Augment and understand and space science for the nation’s growth and the benefit of mankind.
1. Developing pertinent engineering professionals to maneuver in the area of space science, research and exploration.
2. Promoting emerging technologies in space science acumen to venture into innovative research activities.
3. Manifest students to aeronautics, planetary exploration, and emerging frontiers in related domains enabling solid and steady establishments.
4. Encourage lifelong learning and experimentation among the students and faculty irrespective of the domain.
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.
“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step” Here we are with one of its kind labs in the entire Nation called DHRITVAN SPACE LAB. All of it started during an interaction with Mr. B A Subramanian, Station Head of Upagraha Amateur Radio Club. The long-awaited dream of SJCIT of establishing a Ground Station came into existence on 27-08-2022 under the guidance of Mr. B A Subramanian Sir along with the supervision of Dr. B N Shobha, Head of the Department of ECE and Prof. Shreehari H S, Assistant Professor. Since then, the progress of DHRITVAN SPACE LAB has reached sky-high and is highly appreciated. The events from DHRITVAN SPACE LAB mainly focus on knowledge transfer in every possible way.
