January 3, 2024 – Dhruva Space is pleased to share the successful Space-qualification of its P-30 Satellite Platform launched as ‘Launching Expeditions for Aspiring Payloads – Technology Demonstrator’ Payload onboard ISRO’s PSLV-C58 POEM-3 mission. The launch took place at 09:10 IST on 01 January 2024, from the First Launch Pad at Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SDSC) in Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh. The LEAP-TD mission featured a derivative of the Dhruva Space P-30 satellite platform integrated to ISRO’s PSLV Orbital Experimental Module 3 (POEM-3), which enabled in-orbit scientific experiments using the spent PS4 stage as an orbital platform. POEM has standard interfaces and packages for power generation, telemetry, tele-command, stabilisation, orbit keeping and orbit manoeuvring and hence can be used to design, develop and validate experimental payloads. IN-SPACe in collaboration with ISRO, had announced the opportunity to host payload on POEM missions. This mission has validated the P-30 platform and its various subsystems in-orbit. These subsystems include On-Board Computer, Ultra High Frequency (UHF) TT&C Module, Beacon in UHF, Attitude Control System with a Reaction Wheel from Comat, and Power Distribution Board. The triumph of this mission was confirmed by the way of reception of Telemetry & Beacon data at the Ground Station of Indian Institute of Space Science & Technology (IIST), Trivandrum, and through the data received from the POEM platform itself as well.
