India's contribution to Unispace+50 initiatives

Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) of the Department of Space (DOS), Government of India executes space programmes through its establishments located across India. The prime objective of ISRO is to develop space technology and its applications for societal benefits. Over the years, ISRO has carried out its mission of bringing space to the service of the common man and for addressing key issues of national development. As one of the leading space faring nations, India has been actively associated with United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA) as member of COPUOS (Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space) since its inception.

In June 2018, UNOOSA celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of the first United Nations Conference on the Exploration and Peaceful Uses of Outer Space (UNISPACE+50) at Vienna, Austria. At this occasion, India announced a capacity building training programme, UNNATI (UNispace Nanosatellite Assembly & Training by ISRO) on nano satellites development through a combination of theoretical coursework and hands-on training on Assembly, Integration and Testing (AIT) for the benefit of space aspiring nations. So far ISRO has successfully conducted two batches of the Course benefitting 60 participants from 33 countries viz., Algeria, Argentina, Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Belarus, Bhutan, Bolivia, Brazil, Brunei Darussalam, Chile, Colombia, Egypt, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Malaysia, Magnolia, Mauritius, Mexico, Morocco, Myanmar, Nepal, Nigeria, Oman, Panama, Peru, Portugal, Republic of Korea, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Tunisia and Vietnam.

ISRO's U. R. Rao Satellite Centre (URSC), formerly known as ISRO Satellite Centre (ISAC) conducted the programmes using its state-of-the-art satellite building facilities. The training programme aims at building Nano satellites through intensive theoretical sessions and practical exposure. The training module provided participants an opportunity to assemble and test a Nano Satellite. This announcement brochure provides the details of capacity building programme on Nano Satellite realization for the third batch of UNNATI to be conducted during October 15 to December 15, 2022 in coordination with UNOOSA.
