UHF Antenna Deployment

In order for the satellite to communicate with us back on Earth, it is necessary to have antennas that can transmit and receive signals. The Ultra High Frequency (UHF) antenna being used for this purpose is going to be approximately 17cm in length.  Due to certain constraints, the antenna must be stored inside the satellite frame prior to and during launch. Following launch, the satellite will stabilize and then the antenna can be deployed. Luis, an Automotive & Vehicle Technology (B.Tech) student, is pictured above explaining the UHF antenna deployment module to the NEUDOSE team.
