ORION Space is a private company mainly focused on Space Technology and Engineering. Though it was officially registered in 2017, it started its activities from 2015. Initially it started with the aim to provide space education in Nepal. Some of the educational training are: Building CanSat, Building SatNOGS Ground-Station, Receiving satellite images from NOAA satellite (weather satellite).
We are providing space education to engineering students using CanSat. We have supervised two CanSat projects at Kathmandu University, and Pokhara University in Nepal. Our company is providing assistance to engineering students in their projects, motivating and funding students to attend international workshops. We are preparing next generation of engineers. We accepts students for internships from different universities, and we train the students.
We are now developing the first Pico-Satellite in Nepal. The size of the satellite is 5cm x 5cm x 5cm, and it’s called PocketQube.
We are not only limited to space applications, and satellite technology, we are also involved in the projects to solve the real life problem in Nepal.
