ISRO 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.

And, will this launch be from the SLP?

 Could the addition of 12 satellites to the main one( Cartosat-3) be the major reason for the delay. Maybe some of them won't arrive by the end of October?

Spaceflight Announces Next Three Rideshare Missions on ISROís PSLV, Slated Through the End of 2019

The rideshare service provider will launch 14 customer satellites from four different organizations on the next three launches

SEATTLE Ė Oct. 15, 2019 Ė Spaceflight, the leading satellite rideshare and mission management provider, today announced it will launch 14 more spacecraft from Indiaís Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) this year. Payloads will launch on PSLVís C47, C48 and C49 missions, scheduled to launch in November and December 2019 from Indiaís Satish Dhawan Space Center. Customers aboard the missions include Analytical Space, Spire, iQPS and Kleos Space.

Analytical Space Inc.ís (ASI) second technical demonstration spacecraft, dubbed Meshbed, will be launching on PSLV C47 in November. ASIís mission is an on-orbit demonstration intended to test technology that will enable users on Earth to gain faster access to satellite data. The spacecraft features a patented antenna from MITRE that could help enable faster access to space-based data, as well as government missions including tactical communications and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance.

The launch window/moment will be within the NOTAM-effective time of day, 03:30 to 05:30 UTC, November 10 through December 9.

The target orbit for Cartosat-3 is a SSO, 505 km circular orbit, inclination 97.4 degrees.

Is it possible to deduce the launch time of day?

Cartosat-3 + Meshbed + 12 SuperDoves = 14 satellites

What about NEMO-AM?  I've seen no recent news about it.

From the eoPortal:

Orbit: Sun-synchronous orbit, altitude = 650 km, inclination = 97.64ļ, period = 97.4 minutes, local time at descending node (LTDN) = 9:30 hours.

Re: NEMO-AM
Does the PS4 fourth stage have enough performance left after Cartosat-3 separation to change orbit from 505 km circular, inclination 97.4 deg; to 650 km circular, inclination 97.64 deg?

And deliver NEMO-AM into its designated SSO with the proper LTDN?
***

EDIT/ADD: https://www.isro.gov.in/launcher/pslv-c47-cartosat-3-mission
Cartosat-3 orbit 509 km circular, 97.5 deg.  Launch 0358 Nov 25 UTC.
13 nanosatellites; no mention of NEMO-AM.

Also, no mention of an imminent launch for NEMO-AM from UTIAS Space Flight Laboratory.

The launch date has been pushed up( for a change :)) 2-3 days to Nov 25th at 930 in the morning in India. For Eastern Canada and the Eastern US,  that is Sunday the 24th at 11pm.   Nice!
