And their vision is to implement a sustained and affordable program to explore the solar system and beyond.
He explained Gaganyaan's requirements, the Launch Vehicle, CES, Infrastructure, and the Orbit Module. He further shares the different ways to save the Crew after they return to Earth. These included Integrated AirDrop Test (IADT) and Test Vehicle, both manned and unmanned. The ending remarks were given by Miss Drashti Gajjar, Membership Director, IEEE BVM SB.
Session 2: INDIAN SCENARIO OF REMOTE SENSING SATELLITES AND ITS APPLICATIONS
The session started by the introduction of speaker Dr. Arvind K Singh given by Dr. Mehfuza Holia. He started the session by interacting with the audience on the sustenance of Earth's environment. He emphasizes the increasing population issues, deforestation, adult, India's geopolitics, etc.
Afterwards, he brings up Remote Sensing, and its history, which has evolved from the first photograph, all the way back in 1839, to Radars that started in 1940, which work till day!
This technology is beneficial in predicting landslides and forest fires. He concludes the event by discussing Cadastral Mapping, Road networks – Useful for GPS purposes, and Change Detection – Which helps monitor and surveillance. Mr. Harsh Shill, R&D officer IEEE BVM SB extended a vote of thanks.
Session 3: CYBER FORENSICS
The session commenced with a welcome speech by Prof. Mayur Vegad sir and further introduced the speaker of the session Mr Rushit Soni and briefed him.
Mr Rushit Soni started the session by giving us an overview of his work experience and also showed us some memes related to cyber forensics to make the session interactive. Our expert also explained to us the technique of collecting shreds of evidence in cyber forensics.The session's expert then focused on digital forensics, which included identification, preservation, analysis, documentation, etc. He also discussed the types of cyber-related crimes and gave us all knowledge about digital forensic standards and guidelines.
The ending remarks were given by Ms. Isha Prasad, NPSS Secretary, IEEE BVM SB.
Session 4: CRYPTO AND BLOCKCHAIN
Dr. Tanmay Pawar, HoD, Electronics Department introduced the speaker, Mr. Jaskaran Singh Manocha, and to provide a quick overview of his professional background.
Beginning the workshop, Mr Manocha discussed the current debates around cryptocurrencies and clarified the differences between cryptocurrencies and blockchain. He placed a strong focus on the concepts of lateral thinking, DYOR (Do Your Research), and Web 3.0 technologies. Over 9000 crypto currencies have already been generated, and new ones are launched daily. On August 18, 2008, a person using the alias Satoshi Nakamoto announced the creation of Bitcoin. Crypto is a type of digital money that utilizes Blockchain technology. A blockchain is a linked list built with hash pointers instead of regular pointers, which is challenging to hack. Bitcoin is produced through mining and offers extremely transparent transactions. Out of 21 million bitcoins, 16 million have already been mined. After bitcoin, Ethereum, created by Vitalik Buterin in 2013, is the second-most popular cryptocurrency..
The vote of thanks was given by Mr. Swar Shah, Operations Manager, IEEE BVM SB.
