  • Digiantra Research and Technology (DRT), a space tech startup founded by Lovely Professional University alumni, has been selected for the SID (Society for Innovation and Development) incubation program at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) Bangalore.

About the Startup

  • Digantara is India’s first air and space surveillance company.
  • It has developed India’s first In-orbit Space Debris Monitoring and tracking system based on the LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) technology, which will provide global real-time earth coverage by deploying a constellation of cost-efficient nanosatellites in LEO (Low Earth Orbit) and a space-based air surveillance payload for accurate tracking of both aircraft and space objects.
  • With a comprehensive approach to long term space flight safety, Digantara will help international space agencies to track and map the space debris and minimize the major threat to the future of space exploration.
