On Saturday, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) successfully launched two customer satellites of Singapore using Polar Satellite Launch Vehicles. On its 57th flight, the 228-ton PSLV launched into orbit from Satish Dhawan Space Sriharikota.https://twitter.com/isro/status/1649704953961934848?s=20
The two satellites, which belonged to Singapore, weighed a total of 757 kilograms. The Indian space agency, which is currently preparing for major missions such as Chandrayaan-3 and the first solar mission, Aditya L-1, conducted its third significant launch of the year with this one.
PSLV successfully deployed both satellites in their planned orbit, according to ISRO Chief S Somnath. "In its 57th mission, PSLV has demonstrated its higher reliability, and congratulations to the team and the NSIL for this mission," Somnath continued.https://twitter.com/isro/status/1649711106108321794?s=20
The PSLV-C55 mission carried two satellites, the main one being the TeLEOS-2, a Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) payload capable of providing all-weather day and night coverage and imaging at 1m full-polarimetric resolution.
On the other hand, the second payload was created to demonstrate the technology of the High-Performance Space-borne VHF Data Exchange System (VDES). The National University of Singapore's Satellite Technology and Research Centre (STAR) and A*STAR's Institute for Infocomm Research (I2R) jointly developed the 16-kg LUMELITE-4.https://twitter.com/isro/status/1649725078148448256?s=20
The PSLV Orbital Experimental Module, also known as the POEM, which is a modified fourth stage of the rocket that typically ends in space debris, is the mission's third major highlight. In order to undertake tests with non-separable payloads, ISRO has recently built it to be utilised as an experimental platform. Seven of these experimental payloads are carried by the Poem and are from the Indian Institute of Astrophysics, Bellatrix, Dhruva Space, and Isro. The payloads have a 30-day operational life in space.
The operation, which took little over 20 minutes to complete from launch to deployment of the two customer satellites, ran well throughout. The three stages separated with accuracy and promptness, lifting the two satellites to the necessary altitude above the earth. At the height of more than 600 kilometers above the earth, the satellites were launched.https://twitter.com/isro/status/1649725078148448256?s=20
