Workshop on Simplified LEO Antenna and Receiving Station

The Mauritius Research and Innovation Council (MRIC) (www.mric.mu) is organizing a series of training workshops for secondary school students on the building of a Simplified Antenna for Satellite data Reception.  The aim is to initiate young Mauritians to Satellite/Space Technology and create awareness on the numerous possibilities these fields could offer for the Republic of Mauritius.  The specific objectives are to provide:

  • Hands-on training on building of antenna for satellite data reception;
  • Data reception and communication with Low Earth Orbiting (LEO) satellites; and
  • Operation of ground station using specific softwares.

At the end of the course, the functional antenna will be gifted to the participating school to enable the trained teacher to impart the knowledge and skills to other students.

The built antenna and the Software Defined Radio (SDR) will be handed over to the supervising teacher only at the end of the training. The Council will provide technical assistance in setting up a mini ground station at the school after the completion of the training.

Two pilot training sessions have already been conducted, firstly at Prof Hassen Raffa SSS and secondly at Forest Side SSS Girls.

The training workshops will be done over school holidays and have been broken down into 6 sessions as shown below.

The first training will be conducted from 30 November to 4 December 2020, comprising of 17 schools, with 1 Educator and 4 students from each school.
