PES Institute of Technology along with five other institutions is developing a student imaging satellite. This satellite is planned to be launched in around 650 km polar sun synchronous orbit at an angel of 99o. This project serves as a platform for students to understand and deal with the advanced space technologies. This paper reports the entire telemetry process in student imaging satellite i.e., acquiring data from various sources and mapping, creation of master telemetry frame and transmitting master telemetry frame to ground. The transmitted telemetry frame gives the entire information about what is happening on the satellite or spacecraft. Typical telemetry frame presented in this paper.
