Who Am I?

14th President of India, Sh. Ramnath Kovind conferring me the Bal Puraskar, 2020.

Name: Onkar Singh | Age: 16 | Education: Senior at Avenues Online

I am a tech-savvy and entrepreneurial 16-year-old. I am the CEO of Paradox Sonic Space Research Association, a SmallSat manufacturing company, and also the Mission Lead of InQube, India’s first open-source satellite mission. I have a passion for experimenting and achieving unexpected results. My philosophy is simple: ‘experiment without any preconceived notions of the outcome’. My ultimate goal is to create a reliable passive attitude control system for low-power spacecrafts in lower earth orbits, even though I am a noob to this field. I am aiming to study Mechanical Engineering as my Undergraduate major with a minor in Aerospace, and if possible, double major in Political Science as well. Ad Astra Per Aspera!

Regarding my professional accomplishments, I am the recipient of the prestigious Rashtriya Bal Puraskar, India’s highest civilian honor for children, in the category of ‘scholastic’. I hold the title of World’s Youngest Webmaster (Male) and World’s Youngest Theoretical Author. I was a finalist in RISE Scholarship ’21 and a scholar of Avenues Online ’23. Recently, I was honored to receive the Global Child Prodigy Awards ’22 presented by Sir Richard J. Roberts, a Nobel Laureate in Physiology and Medicine 1993. You can read more about it here.

During the initial outbreak of SARSCoV-2 in India, I developed a web-based application called Covid Care Jammu. It aimed to aid in the increase of contact tracing, data mapping, and self-risk virus assessments. However, the application was discontinued on March 13, 2021. Here is an archived snapshot of the web application for educational reference.

I am very passionate about Cybersecurity, I have a good hand on python coding, malware creation, reverse engineering and custom operating systems design for ARM-based architectures such as Raspberry Pi boards. My expertise also include creating custom Raspberry Pi images for satellite ground station projects.
