Structural subsystem maintains mechanical integrity of subsystems on the satellite during launch and on-orbit activities
Thermal subsystem passively controlled with the help of sensors
Attitude Determination and Control subsystem sensors and actuators are used to provide three-axis control
Power subsystem solar cells convert sunlight into electrical energy, energy is stored and distributed to the other subsystems
On-board Computer subsystem decodes Earth station commands; controls various subsystems and functions; manages data and telemetry handling and forwards the data to the communication subsystem for download
