"MANGALYAAN: The Space Cart To MARS India’s First Mars Orbiter Mission(MOM)"

#IEEEDay #webinar #wie #remotesensingday #ieeeevent #grss

On the occasion of National Remote sensing day on 12th August. An expert session is scheduled for all interested participants on 11th August 2023.

Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM), also known as Mangalyaan, India's first interplanetary
mission to planet Mars was launched on board PSLV-C25 on November 05, 2013. The
objectives of this mission were primarily technological and included design, realization
and launch of a Mars Orbiter spacecraft capable of operating with sufficient autonomy
during the journey phase; Mars orbit insertion / capture and in-orbit phase around Mars.
MOM carried five scientific payloads to study the Martian surface features, morphology,
mineralogy and Martian atmosphere.
The proposed talk strives to present the technology behind this cost effective mission,
ever made in the world
