SRO centres set for PSLV-C36 launch in November

 

 

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Four days after the successful launch of PSLV-C35 rocket, ISRO centres here are now focussed on the upcoming launch of PSLV-C36 in November. It also offers an opportunity for the student winners of Inter-School quiz on Oct 1 as part of the World Space Week, to witness the launch at Sriharikota. Adding to their excitement, the students will be hosted by ISRO chairman AS Kiran Kumar.

"Soon after the success of PSLV-C35 launch, preparations are on for the next PSLV C-36 mission in November for the launch of Resourcesat-2A which is a follow on mission to remote sensing satellite by ISRO created for providing accurate data about Earth surface," Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre (VSSC) director K Sivan told TOI.

In addition to Resourcesat-2A satellite, the PSLV-C36 will have a payload of customer satellites including a NIU satellite from Noorul Islam University in Tamilnadu and a couple of foreign satellites, he said.

According to scientists at VSSC, the foreign satellites planned for launch with PSLV- C36 mission include Italy's Max Valier satellite and Latvia's Venta-1 satellite.
Launch of PSLV-C36, will be the first among the 15 operational flights of ISRO's proven workhorse Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) given approval by the Union Cabinet led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in May last year. It forms part of the PSLV continuation programme which will enable the launch of satellites required for Earth Observation, Navigation and Space Sciences along with the possibility of clinching commercial launch service contracts.
 

Total fund requirement including the cost of 15 PSLV launches, programme elements, management and launch campaign was pegged at Rs 3090 crore. The PSLV-C36 launch is ahead of the timeline set for launch of the 15 PSLVs to be completed during the period 2017-2020.
Interestingly, the high school students from across Kerala who participate in the Inter-School Quiz on Oct 1 and emerge toppers will get a chance to visit Sriharikota to witness the launch of PSLV-C36 in November. The event will be hosted by the ISRO chairman, VSSC Technology transfer and development group head SR Vijayamohanakumar said. The Inter-school quiz will be held concurrently at Thiruvananthapuram, Thrissur and Kozhikode on Saturday. It is part of the World Space Week celebrations to be organised by ISRO centres here set on the theme `Remote Sensing Enabling our Future'.

India's latest Earth observation satellite, RESOURCESAT 2A, will be launched on board ISRO's workhorse Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle on December 7
 

 

BENGALURU (PTI): India's latest Earth observation satellite, RESOURCESAT 2A, will be launched on board ISRO's workhorse Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle on December 7 from the spaceport of Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh.

"RESOURCESAT-2A is scheduled to be launched on December 07, 2016 at 10:24 hours (IST) from SDSC (Satish Dhawan Space Centre), SHAR, Sriharikota," said the Indian Space Research Organisation, which had earlier planned to launch it on November 28.

PSLV-C36, the 38th flight of PSLV, will place the 1,235-kg RESOURCESAT-2A into an 817 km polar Sun Synchronous Orbit (SSO), ISRO said, adding that, in this flight, the 'XL' version of PSLV with six solid strap-on motors is being used.

Remote sensing satellite RESOURCESAT-2A, used for resource monitoring, is a follow-on mission to RESOURCESAT-1 and RESOURCESAT-2, launched in 2003 and 2012, respectively.

It is intended to continue the remote sensing data services to global users provided by RESOURCESAT-1 and RESOURCESAT-2, ISRO said.

The configuration is similar to RESOURCESAT-2 having three-tier imaging capability, with a unique combination of payloads consisting of three solid-state cameras-- a high resolution Linear Imaging Self Scanning Sensor LISS-IV, a medium resolution Linear Imaging Self Scanning Sensor LISS-III and an Advanced Wide Field Sensor (AWiFS).

The spacecraft mass is around 1200 kg with a power generation capacity of 1250 W and a mission life of five years.

PSLV, ISRO's versatile launch vehicle for launching multiple satellites in polar SSOs, Low Earth Orbits (LEO) as well as Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit (GTO) and sub GTO, has 36 successful launches to its credit so far.

During 1994-2016 period, PSLV has launched a total of 121 satellites, including 79 from abroad.

PSLV-C36 / RESOURCESAT-2A

PSLV-C36

PSLV-C36 is the thirty eighth flight of ISRO's Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV). PSLV-C36 will place the 1235 kg RESOURCESAT-2A into an 817 km polar Sun Synchronous Orbit (SSO). PSLV-C36 will be launched from the First Launch Pad (FLP) at Satish Dhawan Space Centre SHAR, Sriharikota. In this flight, the 'XL' version of PSLV with six solid strap-on motors is used.

PSLV is the ISRO's versatile launch vehicle for launching multiple satellites in polar SSOs, Low Earth Orbits (LEO) as well as Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit (GTO) and sub GTO. With 36 successful launches, PSLV has emerged as the workhorse launch vehicle of ISRO and is offered for launching satellites for international customers. During 1994-2016 period, PSLV has launched a total of 121 satellites, of which 79 satellites are from abroad and 42 are Indian satellites.

PSLV-C36 / RESOURCESAT-2A  is scheduled to be launched on December 07, 2016 at 10:24 hrs (IST) from SDSC SHAR, Sriharikota.
