NASA Award

  • Event Name : Create the Future Design Contest- 2015
  • Organiser : Nasa and Society of Automobile Engineers,International
  • Venue : New York
  • Participants : Thousands of young scientists from 60 countries.
  • Winners : Eight teams received the awards and 32 inventions found a place in Nasa’s official publication in the special issue of November.

TycheeJuno project :

The burst prevention and puncture curative technology (BPPC) invention by TycheeJuno project.Udit Bondia, KN Panda and Smitiparna Satpathy are the other members of the team.


  • Burst Prevention and Puncture Curative technology limiting the impacts of punctures, but there hasn’t been a solution to decrease the chances of a tyre bursting due to overheating.
  • This is not only decreases the possibilities of bursts but has also taken care of punctures, dynamic wheel balancing, increasing fuel efficiency and life.

Advantages :

  • TycheeJuno’s technology in 10 million vehicles, reduction in carbon emission due to decreased tyre replacement would be be 200,000 tons of carbon dioxide per annum.
  • Improved fuel efficiency will result in reduction of 200 million gallons of gasoline consumption .

Key points :

  • NASA Headquarters : Washington, D.C.
  • NASA  Administrator : Charles Bolden.
