BIRDS-3 Satellite Project Program at NAST

BIRDS-3 Satellite project, which involves first satellites for Sri Lanka and Nepal [HERE], will undergo its final and perhaps the most important design review, the Critical Design Review (CDR), on 1st September 2018. If the team is to defend its design, the project will move into Flight Model (FM) stage. The FM of NepaliSat-1 along with Raavana-1 and Uguisu will be then handed over to Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) next year. JAXA is the launch partner for BIRDS project.
