 NovaSAR, with S-Band Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), is a small satellite intended for forest mapping, land use, ice cover monitoring, flood and disaster monitoring, Ship detection and Maritime monitoring.

Nellore: The stage is all set for the launch of PSLV-C42 mission with two international customer satellites of Surrey Satellite Technology Limited, United Kingdom, on board from the first launch pad at Satish Dhawan Space Centre, SHAR, Sriharikota on September 16, 2018.

Antrix Corporation Limited, the commercial arm of the Indian Space Research Organisation, has been given the contract by SSTL for launching their two satellites, namely, NovaSAR and S1-4. 

It has been planned to launch both the satellites with PSLV-C42 into a 583 km Sun Synchronous Orbit. NovaSAR, with S-Band Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), is a small satellite intended for forest mapping, land use, ice cover monitoring, flood and disaster monitoring, Ship detection and Maritime monitoring. S1-4 is a high resolution Optical Earth Observation Satellite used for surveying resources, environment monitoring and urban management.

India To Launch Two British Satellites On Sunday

"The September 16 rocket launch will be a fully commercial launch. The rocket will be carrying only the two foreign satellites," K. Sivan, Chairman of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), told IANS on Thursday.

CHENNAI: 

Indian rocket Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) will put into orbit on Sunday two foreign satellites - NovaSAR and S1-4 - together weighing 889 kg, said a top official.

"The September 16 rocket launch will be a fully commercial launch. The rocket will be carrying only the two foreign satellites," K. Sivan, Chairman of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), told IANS on Thursday.

He said such commercial launches were not new for ISRO as it has done that several times earlier.

The PSLV rocket will blast off from the first launch pad of Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh.

The two satellites belong to Surrey Satellite Technologies Ltd (SSTL), UK, under commercial arrangement with Antrix Corp Ltd - the commercial arm of ISRO.

 

According to ISRO, the two earth observation satellites will be launched into a 583 km Sun Synchronous Orbit.

NovaSAR is a S-Band Synthetic Aperture Radar satellite intended for forest mapping, land use and ice cover monitoring, flood and disaster monitoring.

PSLV-C42 Mission

The launch of PSLV-C42 is scheduled on September 16, 2018 from the First Launch Pad of Satish Dhawan Space Centre, Sriharikota. This mission is designed to launch two earth observation satellites, NovaSAR and S1-4 (together weighing nearly 889 kg) of M/s Surrey Satellite Technologies Limited (SSTL), United Kingdom under commercial arrangement with Antrix Corporation Limited, Department of Space. Both satellites are planned to be launched into a 583 km Sun Synchronous Orbit.

ISRO set for PSLV-C42 mission tomorrow

Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is all set for dedicated commercial mission - PSLV-C42 - on Sunday night carrying two international customer satellites.

CHENNAI: Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is all set for dedicated commercial mission - PSLV-C42 - on Sunday night carrying two international customer satellites. It is the first launch after a gap of five months and is said to be a prelude for busiest months ahead for the national space agency.

PSLV-C42 mission in its Core Alone configuration, is scheduled to launch two satellites S1-4 and NovaSAR from United Kingdom. In this configuration, the rocket will be without six solid strap-on motors. This version was first flown in April 2007 and is the lightest version of PSLV. Antrix Corporation Limited, the commercial arm of ISRO has been contracted by Surrey Satellite Technology Limited (SSTL) of UK for launching their two satellites.

Both these satellites are planned to be launched from first launch pad in a 583-km Sun Synchronous Orbit (SSO). K Sivan, Chairman, ISRO, told Express that this launch will begin the busiest months ahead. “The plan is drawn to launch 22 missions in 2019. There will a launch in remaining three months of this year as well. In October, GSLV Mk-III D2 carrying GSAT-29 will be launched followed by PSLV-c43 and in November last week or December first week,GSAT-11, which was recalled earlier this year,
will be launched by Arianespace,” he said.  

To a query, Sivan said the five months gap was due to some corrective measures undertaken by the space agency. “The anomaly in GSAT-6A, with which signal link got lost soon after launch on March 29, has identified a problem in our solar panel deployment. We recalled GSAT-29 for the same reason. Now, we have improved our separation systems. Also, all the immediate launches involved are new and high-throughput satellites, which takes time,” he said.  

PSLV is the well proven workhorse launch vehicle of India. In 25 years, it has successfully launched 52 Indian and 237 international customer satellites. PSLV has time and again demonstrated its capability of launching multiple satellites in a single mission. In addition, its upper stage engine restart option has further enabled launching satellites in different orbits in a single mission.

Launching multiple satellites in a single mission by PSLV has increased from three
satellites in 1999, 10 in 2008, 20 in 2016 to the most recent momentous PSLV-C37 mission in 2017 which  launched a record 104 satellites in one go. PSLV was also instrumental in several landmark missions of ISRO, including Chandrayaan-1 and the Mars Orbiter Mission.
