Satellites Introduction

The first artificial satellite to orbit Earth was Sputnik 1. Built by the Soviet Union and launched on October 4, 1957, Sputnik had an elliptical orbit, ranging in altitude from 225 to 950 km. Sputnik broadcasted a steady signal of beeps for 21 days and burned up in Earth's atmosphere upon reentry on January 4, 1958.       

Ground Station

ANGKASA MISSION CONTROL FACILITY

    The ANGKASA mission control facility is owned and operated by ANGKASA that handles the communications for both uplink and downlink with orbiting spacecraft. It has two antenna system which are 5.0 meter antenna which can provide Tracking, Telemetry & Control (TT&C) support operating in S-band and 7.3 meter antenna for Image Receiving and Processing System (IRPS) operating in X-band.

Optical Calibration Laboratory

Optical Calibration Laboratory

Optical Calibration Laboratory building was completely built in 10 March 2006. It was the pioneer lab in Malaysia that has capability to calibrate optical system of a satellite. This lab was fully operational in 6 April 2006 where there is a clean room located inside. It is a double storey building with control room for the clean room, dust control area, loading area in ground floor while the first floor is research office.
