Conceived as an idea in 2009, SRMSAT evolved into the first successful student nano-satellite mission.A team of 50 dedicated individuals from several branches persevered two long years of design phase to come up with an engineered design, qualifying ISRO's launch standards. The nano-satellite was launched and successfully placed into the Low Earth Orbit on 12th Oct,2011. Since then, it has completed more than 20000 orbits and is still operational, sending beacon data, regularly tracked by in-campus UHF/VHF ground station.
