Satellite promises to connect and increase productivity on farms without Wi-Fi or cell phone signal;  understand

Project created by Inatel students, in Santa Rita do Sapucaí (MG), won 1st place in the Brazilian Satellite Olympics. The idea is to monitor planting, temperature measurements and soil pH for farmers. Understand how a satellite that promises connection to monitor farms without Wi-Fi works. Connection wherever you are. This is what a satellite created by a team from the National Telecommunications Institute (Inatel), in Santa Rita do Sapucaí (MG), proposes. The project won 1st place in the Brazilian Satellite Olympiad (OBSAT) this Wednesday (6) in Natal, Rio Grande do Norte (RN). 📲 Join the g1 Sul de Minas channel on WhatsApp Understand how a satellite created in MG works that promises connectivity to monitor farms without Wi-Fi or cell phone signal Inatel The team is made up of students Matheus Reno Torres and Arielli Ajudarte da Conceição, from the course of Telecommunications Engineering, under the guidance of professor Evandro César Villas Boas. 🛰️ CubeSat, as small satellites are called, proposes connectivity via the Internet of Things (IoT) in remote areas. In other words, the study seeks to understand connections based on nanosatellites over large territorial distances. “The idea is to have farms to monitor planting, to measure temperature and soil pH for farmers. […] To ensure that the farmer can access this data, regardless of whether the region where he is located has a connection. With an IoT module on a farm, whether without a Wi-Fi connection or a cell phone signal, it is possible to capture data by connecting these smart modules to a module that has internet”, explained the researcher, Arielli Ajudarte. According to the researchers, the CubeSat should function as a data relay, that is, a signal repeater. “He [produtor rural] you wouldn’t need to purchase a package [de internet] to send his harvest data to the cloud. So, the Cubesat would serve to provide this connectivity to the modules that are on the ground, carrying out the sensing. Afterwards, Cubesat would send it to the internet and this data would arrive in the cloud”, said professor Evandro César Villas Boas.

And one of the obstacles in Brazil to implementing technology in the field is the lack of connectivity”, emphasized the professor.

Brazilian SXSW presents news and g1 explains 🛰️ How was it produced? The CubeSat presented by the team was produced in aeronautical aluminum, with fittings, a circuit and transmitter, with modern sensory module plates, in addition to the insertion of a GPS and a retractable material antenna. Satellite produced for Inatel wins Brazilian Satellite Olympics Inatel “The structure was made of 70×50 aluminum, this was requested by the organization itself. Before, in the third phase, the 3D structure. Furthermore, they asked for it to be a flexible antenna so that it would not get in the way or harm the installation process on the rocket in any way. Furthermore, it has three sensory module plates,” said Arielli. 🛰️ What are satellites? Satellites emerged to connect the entire world. This technology is largely responsible for radio and TV communication across the entire planet, as well as globalization. In addition to giant satellites, there are miniature equipment, also called Cubesat. The intention of these nanosatellites is to help universities carry out practical activities of scientific exploration of space. Satellite created by Inatel students wins Brazilian Satellite Olympics Inatel Second Inatel, the electromagnetic waves from a satellite enable, for example, communication via internet and TV signals, as well as various information and data monitoring that can be distributed throughout the world. “Optical and aerospace technologies, combined with digital technologies, make the satellite network increasingly attractive to innovation verticals and close to other communication networks in the country. In the coming years, possibly with the introduction of 6G, we will witness a single network, which will feature terrestrial, mobile and satellite devices, which will integrate the communication of each and every user.”, explained Carlos Nazareth Motta Martins, director of Inatel. 🛰️ How was the competition? OBSAT was promoted by the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovations (MCTI). Each project registered in the Olympics has a monitoring mission that, in addition to proposing the solution of real problems, also needs to comply with various protocols in order to spread aerospace culture. In the “graduation” category, four teams were classified for this 4th and final competition, with Inatel being the only Minas Gerais institution in the country in the competition. The first stage took place in 2021. The students presented the proof of concept planning. Then, between 2021 and 2023, they built the prototype and launched the satellite into the stratosphere. Inatel students win Brazilian Satellite Olympiad Inatel The team from Sul de Minas was the best placed, among competitors from all school levels and regions of the country. She arrived in the competition with more than 10 points of advantage and won first place. 🚀 This Friday (8), students will launch the satellite at 3pm on a rocket that will follow the first orbital space flight of the competition.
