Design and development of small can sized satellite called CAN-SATis proposed in this paper to study the low altitude atmospheric weather condition in an economical way. The primary work is to analyze the temperature, air pressure and humidity in the space. Zigbee transmitter and receiver module is coded and dumped along with sensors. These components are embedded to Arduino-nano making up a size of CAN-SAT. At ground monitoring station the above the weather parameter in a device may be done
