The nanosatellite Jugnu weighing 3 kg is designed and developed by Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur under the guidance of ISRO.
The satellite is intended:
- To prove the indigenously developed camera system for imaging the Earth in the near infrared region and test image processing algorithms.
- Evaluate GPS receiver for its use in satellite navigation.
- Test indigenously developed MEMS based Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) in space.
