Nine satellites launched by ISRO on PSLV-C54

Nine satellites launched by ISRO: On 27 November at 11:56 a.m., the Indian Space Research Organization (Isro) will launch its PSLV-C54 rocket from its Sriharikota launchpad with the EOS-06 (Earth Observation Satellite) and eight nano-satellites aboard. The workhorse rocket will launch the satellites into two distinct polar orbits that are sun synchronised (SSPOs).

Nine satellites launched by ISRO: Key Points

  • The main satellite, EOS-06, will be divided in Orbit-1. The other passenger payloads (PPLs) will thereafter be released and the orbit will be modified.
  • On Friday at 10:26 am, the launch countdown officially began. This is the 24th flight of the PSLV-XL variant and the 56th overall for PSLV.
  • The third-generation Oceansat satellite is called EOS-6. This will offer Oceansat-2 spacecraft continuity services with improved payload specs and application regions.
  • India-Bhutan SAT, four nano satellites from Spaceflight USA, a Seattle-based company; one from Astrocast, a Swiss communication company; two (Tybolt 1 and 2) from Hyderabad-based Dhruva Space; and a nano satellite called “Anand,” created by space technology start-up Pixxel are among the satellites being launched alongside it.

Nine satellites launched by ISRO on PSLV-C54: Highlights

At Sri Changala Parameswari temple in Sullurpeta earlier in the day, ISRO Chairman S. Somanath prayed for the mission’s success. In his remarks, he noted that this was the third flight of PSLV this year. He stated that a small satellite launch vehicle (SSLV) was scheduled to launch in December. On August 7, the SSLV’s inaugural flight failed to successfully deliver the two satellites EOS-02 and AzaadiSAT in their intended orbit.

According to sources within ISRO, DR. Somanath dedicated a launch pad created by Agnikul Cosmos, a Chennai-based space technology business, for its suborbital flight at Satish Dhawan Space Center.
