Isro’s PSLV-C54 places earth observation satellite EOS-06 in orbit; mission continues | India News


SRIHARIKOTA: Indian Space Research Organization (isro) successfully placed the earth observation satellite EOS-06 into its orbit on Saturday.
Isro’s Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) lifted off from the first launch pad at the Sriharikota Cosmodrome at 11:56 a.m. on a two-hour multi-orbit launch mission. Main load on board PSLV-C54 to be EOS-06. The 1117kg earth observation satellite was built by the UR Rao Satellite Center, Isro. Others on board PSLV are nanosatellites, including India’s first privately built Anand earth observation satellite.
About 17 minutes after takeoff, the rocket’s fourth stage put EOS-06 (Oceansat-3) into a 742.7 km long orbit. EOS-06 is the third generation satellite in the Oceansat series. This is intended to provide ongoing services of the Oceansat-2 spacecraft with enhanced payload specifications as well as application areas. The payloads in the satellite include ocean color monitors, sea surface temperature monitors, Ku-band scatterometers and Argos.
After placing EOS-06 in orbit, the rocket’s PS4 will change its orbit to a 516 km solar synchronous polar orbit to place the rest of the satellites in the next hour. The satellites include two Thybolt satellites, a communications payload created by Dhruva Space to enable rapid technology demonstration and constellation development for multiple users.
Next is the satellite INS-2B (India-Bhutan Sat) which will be put to an altitude of 528.8km. The Isro-2 nanosatellite for Bhutan (INS-2B) has two payloads including NanoMx, a multi-spectral optical imaging payload developed by the Center for Space Applications.
The rocket will place the Anand nanosatellite into low earth orbit. Satellite built by Bengaluru-based startup pixels. This is a technology demonstration to demonstrate the capabilities and commercial applications of miniature earth observation cameras to observe the earth by microsatellites.
Four nanosatellites of the US company Spaceflight will also be put into orbit. Satellites are a technology demonstration for the Internet of Things in the form of payloads.
Saturday’s launch was the 56th flight of the PSLV and the 24th flight of the PSLV-XL version with six XL boosters.
