In April 2024, four JSS Mahavidyapeetha universities will launch a nanosatellite together. The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is launching a nanosatellite called “JSS Nanom” to investigate the effects and reactions of medicine in space, according to A.N. Santosh Kumar, Vice-Chancellor of JSS Science and Technology University (JSS STU), Mysuru, who made this announcement to the media on Tuesday.

The satellite has a weight of 1.25 kg and was constructed for a cost of Rs. 1.25 crore, which was more than the Rs. 80 lakh initial estimate because of project delays caused by the need to import Russian components. As a result, the original schedule for the satellite’s November 2023 launch had to be changed.

He also mentioned that some of the former students of Sri Jayachamarajendra College of Engineering (SJCE), which is now a part of JSS-STU and involved in the ISRO project, had contributed to the project’s success.
