Experiences from UNispace Nanosatellite Assembly & Training (UNNATI) by ISRO

Aazzah talks about her experience of participating in the UNispace Nanosatellite Assembly & Training (UNNATI), a program by ISRO which intends to provide a hands on training program for engineers from developing country on building nanosatellites.

 

From 15 October to 15 December 2019, two of NiAT’s very own staff went to Bangalore, India, to take part in the UNNATI Batch 2 course. They were Siti Nuraazzah PDHA Aziz, Deputy CEO, and Wong Teck Sion, Head of Technical and Operations. It was endorsed by the Ministry of Transport and Info-Communications.

The UNNATI course is a capacity building programme offered by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) to other United Nations member states, as part of their UNISpace initiative in the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA) agenda.

A total of 30 professionals from 16 countries completed the course. Of the 30 participants, 11 were from their nation’s space and science agencies, 8 were air force officers, 5 were university lecturers, 4 were from satellite communications companies, and 2 were from civil aviation authorities. The diversity in the participants presented a unique opportunity to learn from each other as each country was at a different stage in their space initiatives and spearheaded by different organisations.
