  1. An IIT Hyderabad associate teacher of the department of chemical design as well as innovative & advanced study, Chandra Sekhar Sharma, has actually created a Lithium-CO2 battery, which many believe might power India's area projects and the grand Mars Mission in 2024.

Scientist, Chandra Shekhar has actually already retrieved Rs 25 lakh Swarnajayanti fellowship 2019-2020 from the department of science and technology in addition to a Rs 1.93 crore study grant from the Science and Engineering Research Board for the following five years.

In a conversation with TOI, Dr. Chandra mentioned, “We will certainly use sodium and also potassium metals and also make the battery a lot more power effective. As soon as prepared, the battery will lower the weight of satellites, consequently lowering the expense of worldly missions. Using CO2 as an energy service provider, the battery is promoted to aid increase area missions.”

” Over the next five years, we will certainly explore even more concerning this idea and perform clinical experiments. A genuine battery model will certainly be established as an outcome by engaging with organizations such as ISRO as well as DRDO in early phases for the Indian area goal,” Sharma added.

Developing a prototype of a metal CO2 battery to discover the expediency of this modern technology in the Mars objective, was the primary purpose behind this research study.

Subsequently, Dr. Chandra discussed, “The end result of this project will certainly not only utilize CO2 environment on Mars to create more power storage systems for planetary goals but help with in alleviating the international obstacle of environment change.”

Moreover, this research has been released as a featured letter and also sent for a license in an international journal called ‘Materials Letters’.

Besides this, IIT- H has actually established Indias’s initial Technology Innovation Hub on Autonomous Navigation and Data Acquisition Systems for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles and also Remotely Operated Vehicles at IIT Hyderabad, called ‘TiHAN Foundation’. On December 29, 2020, The Foundation Stone has actually been virtually laid by the Minister of Education, Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’.

The Department of Science and Technology (DST), Government of India has approved Rs. 135 crores to IIT Hyderabad under the National Mission on Interdisciplinary Cyber-Physical Systems (NM-ICPS) to establish TiHAN Foundation.
