India’s PSLV-C47 effectively propelled Cartosat-3 and 13 business nanosatellites from Satish Dhawan Space Center (SDSC) SHAR, Sriharikota.
PSLV-C47 lifted-off at 0928Hrs (IST) on November 27, 2019 from the Second Launch Pad of SDSC SHAR, Sriharikota. PSLV-C47 was the 74th dispatch vehicle crucial SDSC SHAR, Sriharikota. This is the 21st trip of PSLV in ‘XL’ arrangement (with 6 strong lash on engines).
Around 17 minutes and 38 seconds after lift-off, Cartosat-3 was infused into a circle of 509 km at a tendency of 97.5 degree to the equator.
Cartosat-3 satellite is a third era spry propelled satellite having high goals imaging capacity.
13 Commercial Nanosatellites from USA were additionally effectively infused into assigned circle. These satellites were propelled under business plan with NewSpace India Limited (NSIL), the business arm of Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO).
2. GSAT-30 (Latest by Jan., 2020)
India’s telecommunication satellite GSAT-30 was successfully launched into a Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit (GTO) on January 17, 2020 from Kourou launch base, French Guiana by Ariane-5 VA-251. GSAT-30 is configured on ISRO’s enhanced I-3K Bus structure to provide communication services from Geostationary orbit in C and Ku bands. The satellite derives its heritage from ISRO’s earlier INSAT/GSAT satellite series.
Weighing 3357 kg, GSAT-30 is to serve as replacement to INSAT-4A spacecraft services with enhanced coverage. The satellite provides Indian mainland and islands coverage in Ku-band and extended coverage in C-band covering Gulf countries, a large number of Asian countries and Australia. The designed in-orbit operational life of GSAT-30 is more than 15 years.
3. PSLV-C48/RISAT-2BR1 (Latest by Dec., 2019)
