Trinity College of Engineering in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala in the fourth week of June 2015 launched the Trinity Adrak Student Satellite (TASSAT) building project. The student satellite project is scheduled for completion by 2018.

The satellite was named so because the funding for the ambitious initiative came from an Oman-based company called Al Adrak.

As part of the TASSAT project CubeSats and NanoSats at a regular pace will be built. The former is a small satellite with a mass of less than 1.33 kilograms and a volume of 1 liter. It is crafted using off-the-shelf materials. The latter is a satellite featuring a mass ratio anywhere between 1 to 10 kilograms.
