'Pratham' has a Four-fold Mission Statement:
For the relevance of our satellite to the student community, we will be transmitting satellite data when the satellite passes over India so that any interested university with a small ground station will not only be able to detect the beacon signal from our satellite but will also be able to measure TEC above their ground station. This is proposed to spread awareness among the student community about this exciting field.
The Pratham Project presents a wonderful learning experience to the students of working on a real life multi-disciplinary complex system. Learning enhancement through CDIO (Conceiving – Designing – Implementing – Operating) has been one of the major objectives of this project. Since a lot of importance is attached to learning, it is duly visible in the Success Criterion for the Mission.
