The SSLV testflight will now happen only after the Chandryaan 2 lands on Moon as per scheduled date on September 7.”...“After Chandrayaan-2, the next launch will now be of Cartosat-3 satellite in October,” Sivan told TOI....Sivan said Isro will conduct the Aditya solar mission, another interplanetary mission, in the middle of next year.

12 August 2019 11:46Kleos Space changes satellite orbits to meet market demandASX and Frankfurt-listed Kleos Space (ASX: KSS, Frankfurt: KS1), a space-powered Radio Frequency Reconnaissance data-as-a-service (DaaS) company, has changed launch providers for its Scouting Mission satellites which will now launch into a 37-degree inclination.ASX and Frankfurt-listed Kleos Space (ASX: KSS, Frankfurt: KS1), a space-powered Radio Frequency Reconnaissance data-as-a-service (DaaS) company, advises that it has changed launch providers for its Scouting Mission satellites which will now launch into a 37-degree inclination.The 37-degree orbital inclination gives the Kleos’ Scouting Mission cluster of four satellites improved data collection by a factor of between 2 and 4.5 times over crucial shipping target regions such as The Strait of Hormuz, South China Sea, and off the North Australia coast, South US coast and East and West African coasts when compared with the originally planned Sun Synchronous Orbit (SSO).Following the recent postponement of the launch of Kleos’ Scouting Mission satellites, Kleos investigated other available launch options with launch and mission management provider Spaceflight Inc. that would meet immediate market demand and potentially increase the value of the data collected.The multi-satellite Scouting Mission system will form the foundation of a constellation that delivers a global picture of hidden maritime activity, enhancing the intelligence capability of government and commercial entities when AIS (Automatic Identification System) is defeated, imagery is unclear, or targets are out of patrol range. The first scouting mission is made up of four nano-satellites built by GomSpace in Denmark, each the size of a shoebox.Since the original choice of SSO was made over a year ago, the threat level in the equatorial regions has increased and Kleos has made significant progress in engaging the market and securing defence and security customers who have an interest in these regions, where increased coverage provides better data and improved mission critical information for customers.Keeping within the Q4 2019 launch window, Kleos will now launch under a rideshare contract with Spaceflight Inc. on the PSLV into a 37-degree inclination orbit.The scouting satellites are ready to fly. The Kleos team has analysed and confirmed compatibility with the satellites flying in a 37-degree inclination. Unlike most earth observation missions which fly in an SSO to allow for the sun to illuminate their targets for imagery, Kleos technology means its satellites can observe RF transmissions at any time of day because they are not dependant on sunlight.The Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) is a highly reliable expendable medium-lift launch vehicle designed and operated by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO).The original SSO is nearly a polar orbit that maintains its relationship with the sun which is useful for power generation and for missions that rely on illumination of the target. SSO gave full global coverage, with good revisit times of the polar areas. PSLV C49 is in a 37-degree inclination, which is where the satellites orbit traverses between 37° North latitude and 37° South latitude. The coverage is broadly bounded by Lisbon in the North and Melbourne in the South delivering far improved revisit times around the equatorial regions at the expense of coverage in the far North and South.

The overall goal of the Meshbed mission is to test the FUSE experimental phased arraycommunication antenna.The satellite will be launched as a secondary payload aboard a Polar Satellite LaunchVehicle (PSLV) operated by the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), fromSriharikota, India NET October 15, 2019, and deployed upon the rocket reaching orbit. Itwill be deployed from the rocket in a 505 km circular orbit, on an inclination from theequator of 97.4 degrees.

India will launch its advanced cartography satellite, Cartosat-3, towards the end of October or early November, K Sivan, Chairman, Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) said."The next launch will be cartography satellite Cartosat-3. The launch will be towards the end of October or early November this year," Sivan told IANS.
https://www.thehindu.com/sci-tech/science/isro-launches-to-resume-in-october-sivan/article29363065.eceISRO would take up Cartosat-3, a high-resolution earth observation satellite, in October. Within a week of it it would launch RISAT-2BR1.
Future programmes will go as planned. Starting with the Cartosat-3 launch by the end of October, followed by RISAT-2BR1 within a week of the Cartosat launch. Isro is also working seriously on the flagship Gangayaan programme. By the end of 2020, the first unmanned flight will be launched.
Somanath said they were trying to understand what happened during the landing on September 7. “Studies are going on. We would soon publish a report for the public,” he said. It would help solve issues in real landings in future, he added.He said, Isro is getting ready for next launches like PSLV C47 and 48, GSLV F10. “We are also working on human space programmes where we would fly astronauts to space and safely bring them back. We are also working on the launches of Aditya L1 and Mars Orbiter Mission-2,” he said.

According to ISRO's highly placed sources, the launch of GIAT-1 is expected by the end of this year. It will be launched by GSLV MARK-2 rocket from Satish Dhawan Space Center at Sriharikota. ISRO has given priority to this satellite, prioritizing future missions. After the launch of CARTOSAT-03 by the end of October, the GIISAT mission will be emphasized.
New Delhi: Putting behind the failed efforts of establishing contact with Lander Vikram, the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) now plans to is now focus on its first human spaceflight mission — Gaganyaan — set for 2021.While addressing students at IIT Bhubaneswar, Dr K Sivan, Chairman ISRO said the first unmanned flight under the mission would be launched by December next year."We are targeting the second one by July 21. By December 2021, the first Indian will be carried by our own rocket into space. ISRO is working on it," said Sivan.
This camera will be used in the Cartosat-3 series of surveillance satellites and also the Indo-US joint venture NISAR satellite due for launch in 2022,” he said.
