13 January, 2018, 04:49
Nellore: Putting aside the doubts over its performance, following the failure of its earlier flight (PSLV-C39) in August previous year, Isro's Polar SatelliteLaunch Vehicle was back with a bang, enhancing confidence of scientists on its prowess. The Indian microsatellite would be orbited after about 90 minutes following the re-ignition of the fourth stage (following placement of the 30th satellite in its orbit), ISRO chairman AS Kiran Kumar said.
Rajnath said that ISRO's achievement of launching "100 satellites is historic in many ways and a big landmark in India's journey into the space".
He told mediapersons after the successful launch of PSLV-C40/Cartosat-2 series mission that the satellites included nine student ones made by some universities while hinting that they could not be counted in Isro's account. "ISRO is starting 2018 with the successful launch. all customer satellites (besides Cartosat and nanosat) released and the microsat after one hour".
After Friday's successful launch, ISRO has now placed 237 foreign satellites from 28 different countries in space, including a world record feat a year ago when 104 satellites were placed in orbit at one go. The co-passenger satellites include one microsatellite and one nanosatellite from India as well as three microsatellites and 25 nanosatellites from six countries Canada, Finland, France, Republic of Korea, the United Kingdom and USA. "So far, the perfromance of Cartosat has been satisfactory", ISRO chairman A S Kiran Kumar, who is set to retire on January 14, said at the mission control room in Sriharikota. Cartosat will be used for capturing high-quality images for rural-urban applications and also for utility managements like road network monitoring.
Microsatellite (India): This is a 100 kg class satellite meant for technology demonstration and the fore runner for future satellites of this series.
Indian Nano Satellite-IC (INS0-1C): Is the 3rd satellite in Indian Nanosatellite series.
17 minutes 18 seconds after the takeoff, the Cartosat-2 series were separated which was combined into 505 km sun-synchronous orbit.
The opening mission of 2018 was considered crucial for ISRO as the previous PSLV launch came as a setback to scientists as the backup navigation satellite IRNSS-1H could not be placed in orbit following a snag in the final leg of the PSLV-C39 mission in August past year.
