Elon Musk Rocket helped deliver the SS-1 Satellite tv for pc Made in Indonesia to the ISS

Surya Satellite-1 (SS-1), a satellite made in Indonesia, has successfully launched its way to the International Space Station (ISS). This satellite was delivered to the ISS using a SpaceX rocket, Falcon 9 CRS-26, a space flight company made by Elon Musk.

This information is known through uploads from the Instagram account of the National Research and Innovation Agency (BRIN) with handle @brin_indonesia, Monday (28/11/2022).

SS-1 began broadcasting on November 26, 2022 at 14.20 local time from NASA’s Kennedy Area Center, Florida, United States of America, or November 27, 2022 at 02.20 WIB.

This SS-1 satellite can be used as a means of communication for all university laboratories, companies, to radios spread throughout Indonesia.

Satellites can also be used as a means of communique for the Automatic Packet Reporting System (APRS) in emergency situations, namely communication in the form of short text.

With APRS, satellites can be used as a crisis mitigation tool, tracking the position of cars, pedestrians, fishing boats, remote monitoring, emergency communications, and internet networks (hotspots) in forests.

The launch of the SS-1 satellite can be a source of pride for the Indonesian people, because the SS-1 satellite is the first satellite developed by young people in Indonesia.

The SS-1 satellite was developed by Surya University which was facilitated and supervised by the Satellite Technology Research Center from BRIN. The rocket launch project also received support from the Ministry of Communication and Informatics (Kemenkominfo), and several other parties.

After arriving at the ISS, software settings will then be carried out. The deployment of the SS-1 satellite itself will be carried out in January 2023 using the Kibo module belonging to the Japan Aerospaces Exploration Agency (JAXA).

Later, this nano satellite (cubesat) will cross Indonesian territory 4-5 times a day at an altitude of 400-420 kilometers above the Earth’s surface with an inclination of 51.6 degrees.
