On Feburary 13th, a delegation from Indian universities visited ASRI as part of the Indo Israel - Student Satellite Project 2022. They got a tour of all of ASRI's laboratories and heard a talk from ASRI director, Prof. Pini Gurfil, about the SAMSON project.
ASRI is very happy and proud to announce that Maxim Rubanovich was chosen as a Technion Outstanding Employee. Maxim is the lab engineer in the Electric Propulsion lab, and has been a part of ASRI since the lab was first founded, 10 years ago. 
A new  satellite mission control center was inaugurated at ASRI yesterday. The new center includes the Adelis Ground Station and an array of antennae for satellite command, control, and communication. It will be used to control the SAMSON mission and obtain data from the satellites.   For the article in Ynet, see here.
The first stage of the S-Band antenna was put in its place on the roof of ASRI building.
