The All Nations University – Space Systems Technology Laboratory (ANU-SSTL)
The ANU-SSTL is a state-of-the-art technology and innovation laboratory that operates under the auspices of the Electronics and Communication Engineering department of the university. Its vision is to promote and build human capacity in the area of Space Science and Satellite Technology through innovative research and development of projects for the development of Ghana and Africa. It was founded in February 2012.
• First university laboratory in Sub-Saharan Africa to design, build and successfully launch an educational satellite called Can-satellite (CanSat), 2013.
• Currently the only university in the region to build, design and launch Ghana’s first satellite (GhanaSat-1) into space in 2017. On June 3, 2017, the satellite was launched using the Space X Flight 11 from the Kennedy Space Center.
• First university laboratory in Sub-Saharan Africa to design and build a Ground Station that communicates with satellites that passes over the region, 2014.
• Successfully established a two-way communication with Astronauts on the International Space Station (ISS).
• ANU-SSTL has both received recognitions from the African Union (AU ) has been documented by the CNN as a voice for innovations in Africa.
The Mission for the establishment of the ANU-SSTL is to:
To promote and build human capacity in the area of Space Science and Satellite Technology through innovative research and development of educative projects to impact our society and Africa as a whole. The Laboratory objective is to;
• To lay down a foundation and advance a sustainable space programme by building human capacity in space Science and Satellite Technology in Ghana and Africa.
• To advance knowledge in the entire process of satellite programme including mission planning, mission operation and mission disposal.
• To research, design, build and integrate high performance educational miniature satellites such as Can-Sat, Hepta-Sat, Cube-Sat and Nano-Sat.
• To research, design and build ground station for tracking and communicating with earth orbiting satellites such as Amateur Ground Stations
• To be a member of the International Ground Station Networks.
• To establish a platform for international networks and collaboration with world renowned institutions for the advancement of space technology of the region.
In fulfilling the ANU-SSTL mandate, several projects and outreach activities has been embarked on in the past Six (6) years in promoting Space Science and Satellite Technology innovative research, development and public education on both local and international platforms.
The ANU-SSTL has embarked on the following projects in promoting sustainable space program in Ghana & Africa:
- CANSAT (Miniature Satellite): In May 2013, the ANU-SSTL team members developed and launch its first miniature satellite which was first of its kind in Sub-Saharan Africa. It attracted both international and local media in like of BBC, APTV to the university premises.
- AMATEUR GROUND STATION: In 2014, the ANU-SSTL team designed, developed and installed the first amateur ground station in Ghana and Sub-Saharan. The ground station made history by successfully tracking and receiving signal from the International Space Station (ISS) on 18th and 24th December 2014. It was therefore awarded a QSL (Contact Verification Card) from the ISS [Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) -QSL Card] for successfully decoding the Slow Scan Television (SSTV) Image of the Russian Cosmonaut- (Mikhail Kornienko) from the ISS.
- The Launch of Ghana’s First Satellite (GhanaSat-1): The ANU-SSTL three engineers completed the design and development of Ghana’s first satellite in 2017 and it was deployed to orbit on 7th July 2017. This great feat has historically put Ghana among the space faring nations and created the platform in education students, space enthusiasts and the society in Ghana and Africa about the benefit of space technology to the development of the society.
- ANU-NASA Project (AERONET GROUND STATION):
In September 2015, Engineers from NASA with ANU students successfully installed SUN PHOTOMETER at the university premises as part of NASA Aerosol Robotic Network (AERONET) and its being operated by the ANU_SSTL staff. The AERONET facility is first to be installed in the sub-region and it helps to measure aerosol column over the region and to validate other satellite-based aerosol measurement.
- Workshops and Conferences:
The ANU-SSTL organizes its annual workshops and conferences by name “Space Science and Satellite Technology Application (SSSTA)” in fulfilling its mandate of promoting space science and satellite technology for sustainable development in Ghana and Africa. The conference yearly attracts both international and local professionals and experts from around the globe to share their experiences and expertise in the field. The ANU-SSTL successfully had its 6th Annual SSSTA November 2017 with the team “The Importance of Small Satellite Technology Application To Enhance The Development of Developing Nations”. It featured participants from 15 countries [Bangladesh, Bhutan, Malaysia, Thailand, Japan, Nigeria, Taiwan, Mongolia, Ethiopia, Costa Rica, Philippines, Sudan, Kenya and Rwanda]. JAXA delegates for the first in the country was present to exhibit their works as well as university students, government officials and other space science and satellite experts both local and international participating.
- Outreach Activities:
The ANU-SSTL outreach targets the students (High Schools and Universities) and the society with the aim of building human capacity in the field of space science and satellite technology for the benefit of the society. We therefore organize several outreach acuities such as annual world space week celebration which brings high school students together to educate them on Science, Technology Engineering, Mathematics, Innovation (STEMI) and space science education. We however empower young women into engineering and technology through such activities.
