I believe that is TeLEOS 1, VELOX C1, Kent Ridge 1 , Galassia and two other satellites.

Correct.

Does anyone have info on the other two satellites?

The Max Valier page is showing a countdown to 5 December 0130 UTC. My records indicated that Max Valier was going to fly on a PSLV-CA, so it might be possible this payload is going to be on this flight.

The other payload might possibly be SkySat 3.

I am not sure, as this mission goes to a low inclination orbit of 15°, which would not allow direct contact of the satellite with ground stations in northern Italy.

SkysSat 3 would likely also prefer a high inclination orbit for more coverage.

Thanks Gunter. I had thought this launch was going into a polar orbit.

Could it be 5 and not 6 satellites for Singapore on this launch?

Re: PSLV-XL C29, TeLEOS-1, December 16, 2015

The launcher will be PSLV-XL
http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/home/science/Now-Isro-to-launch-6-to-12-satellites-a-year/articleshow/49823834.cms
Why use a PSLV-XL when the payloads' collective mass and orbital destinations seem to fit within the capabilities of the PSLV-CA?

When is the launch window on the 16th?

As per my observation, this is the 50th rocket launch from Sriharikota (considering all SLVs - SLV, ASLV, PSLV, GSLV & LVM3). Can some one validate this point?

Here are some important milestones:
01. SLV3-E1     10-Aug-1979
05. ASLV3-D1   13-Jul-1987
10. PSLV-D2     15-Oct-1994
15. PSLV-C3   22-Oct-2001
20. PSLV-C6     05-May-2005
25. PSLV-C10   21-Jan-2008
30. GSLV-D3(M2)   15-Apr-2010
35. PSLV-C18   12-Oct-2011
40. PSLV-C25   05-Nov-2013
45. GSLV-X1(M3)   18-Dec-2014

It took around ~35 years for ISRO to achieve this feat. One can observe a faster pace of launches in last few years (2nd 25 in last 7/8 years time period). Hope to see the century soon...:). I believe, ISRO will reach it within next 5-7 years time frame. :)

04  SLV
04  ASLV
31  PSLV
09  GSLV
01  LVM3X

That is 49 flights :)

BUT we also had a contraption SO-300-200 that flew from Sriharikota

Quote
In the case of ASLV, Rohini rockets were used to test strap-ons. It may be recalled that ASLV was ISRO’s first launch vehicle to use strap-ons. To get some hand-on experience, ISRO rigged a Rohini strap-on rocket. The core was the RH-300 while the two strap-ons were the RH-200 rockets (only the boosters, of course). The contraption, designated as SO-300-200 was successfully flown on 16 October 1985 from Sriharikota.

Above excerpt taken from recently released book "From Fishing Hamlet to Red Planet". LVM3X and SO-300-200 both were suborbital experiments.

I think this footage(@4m30s mark) in this video is of SO-300-200.



Can't wait for Vol.2 it would have neat photographs :D

One note: if this one is going up at morning local time it will clash with the long awaited party of a certain SoCal-aerospace-company-that-must-not-be-named.  ;)
