Team Aranea from PES University works on novel de-orbiting mechanism for Micro and Nano satellites in low and medium altitude Earth orbits (LEOs & MEOs) in the project called Ultra-thin Wires Drag Enhancement System (UWDES). Ten members of the team attended the International Astronautical Congress (IAC)-2017 held at Adelaide, Australia from Sept 25th to 29th. IAC is the largest annual space tech conference attended by scientists, industry and academia worldwide. The team presented a paper on the UWDES concept, titled “Drag Enhancement for Spacecraft using Numerous Ultra-Thin Wires Arranged into Drag-Wire Webs of Various Configurations”.

Student Innovations @PES University ready for technology transfer: Contactless Underwater Li-Ion Battery Charging.
The proposed system is capable of transferring a maximum power of 1kW at the receiver end underwater and the proposed system can be easily adapted for various other underwater systems, nodes and robots too.
G. Radhika, a computer science graduate from PESIT, a 2012-batch IPS officer, assumed charge as Superintendent of Police of Mandya.
Shrikant converted an old motorbike which was out of use into a racing bike which could easily clock speeds in the range of 130 km per hour. Riders would be surprised by the speeds the bike could attain with hardly any jerk or vibration. The engine, gear box, forks, disc brakes and suspension were modified for racing conditions. The tank, kicker, case side lamps and other parts were designed by Shrikanh using CADD and fabricated using lathes and laser cutting machines. A mobile phone with a customized app doubles up as a speedometer showing accurate time and distance. Shrikant is a final year diploma student at PES Polytechnic college.
