The deployment of Sri Lanka’s first satellite Raavana 1, designed and developed by two Sri Lankan research engineers, into orbit can be viewed live from 3.30 pm onwards today by logging into the ACCIMT web (http://www.accimt.ac.lk/) site or directly through following the YouTube channel (https://youtu.be/rrw3cMw10nQ).  

Raavana-1 will be deployed to the 400km of orbit at an inclination of 51.6 degrees using the JAXA (Japanese Aerospace and Exploration Agency) owned Kibo experiment module.  

Two more satellites from Nepal (their first satellite), and Japan will also be deployed at the same time. 

The satellite is expected to fulfil five missions including the capturing of pictures of Sri Lanka and surrounding regions and active attitude stabilisation, which ensures that satellite’s attitude is stable under the influence of external talks.  

Raavana-1 is a cube-seized miniature satellite and Sri Lanka's first research satellite built by two Sri Lankan youth - Tharindu Dayaratne and Dulani Chamika - which marks our entrance into the space age. 

The satellite which was designed and built at the Kyushu Institute of Technology in Japan is 1000 cubic cm in size and weighs 1.1 kg.
