Besides the mission to the moon, “Chandrayan 1”, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) will launch “an orbiting astronomical observatory” and a specialised satellite for climate studies, ISRO Chairman G Madhavan Nair said on Sunday.

X-Sat is a piggy-back payload an will fly with a primay payload on a PSLV
Tecsar, as said earlier has also slipped into 2007
LAPAN-TUBSAT has taken the place of Anusat

so this leaves probably 4 launches in 2006

Info on the Indonesian Piggyback payload on the next PSLV mission on this  link  (http://www.antara.co.id/en/seenws/?id=19836)

highlights
Weighing about 57 kgs, the first stage satellite is much lighter than the US-made Palapa satellite weighing around 400 kgs.

The manufacturing of the micro satellite the design of which was done by German experts had been completed and the satellite had also been taken to Isro in India to be launched together with India`s satellite "Cartosat-2".

As to the cost, LAPAN only spent about Rp10 billion on its manufacturing in Indonesia

Just to clarify things a bit, which launches are yet scheduled for 2006 and which for 2007?

I think there are no more indian launches schedule for 2006. For a long time now that I don't listen anything about the Agile sat launch ( http://www.agile.rm.iasf.cnr.it and http://www.isro.org/rep2005/SpaceTransport.htm).

For 2007 I have:

January - PSLV-C7 - CastoSat-2; SRE-1; Lapan-Tubsat
March - PSLV - X-Sat
March - PSLV - TechSAR
June 30 - PSLV - Oceansat-2; CanX-2; AAU-Cubsat 2; Cute-1.7; APD-2; Compass-1; Delfi-C3; SEEDS-2
July - GSLV - Insat-3D
July - GSLV - Insat-4CR
September - GSLV - Uragan-M7 (GLONASS)
September - GSLV - Healthsat; Tauvex
September - GSLV - Insat-4D

This is a compilation of informations from various sources.
Title: Re: Indian launches in 2006
Post by: sammie on 01/22/2007 10:29 am
I thought it would be nice to bring this one to the top again, maybe someone can edit the title of the thread to include 2007. PSLV-C7 has launched succesfully and brought one of its payloads down to earth as planned. At the link (http://www.hindu.com/2007/01/21/stories/2007012104620400.htm) there is additional info on the Oceansat-2 launch, now scheduled for year end 2007.
Title: Indian launches in 2007
Post by: Satori on 04/24/2007 10:59 pm

Taking into account the news posted here ( http://www.hindu.com/2007/04/24/stories/2007042414931500.htm ) there will be three more launches from India until the end of 2007.

Before the last successful launches I had this schedule:

January - PSLV-C7 - CastoSat-2; SRE-1; Lapan-Tubsat
March - PSLV - X-Sat
March - PSLV - TechSAR
June 30 - PSLV - Oceansat-2; CanX-2; AAU-Cubsat 2; Cute-1.7; APD-2; Compass-1; Delfi-C3; SEEDS-2
July - GSLV - Insat-3D
July - GSLV - Insat-4CR
September - GSLV - Uragan-M7 (GLONASS)
September - GSLV - Healthsat; Tauvex
September - GSLV - Insat-4D

The latest news says that there will be one launch by GSLV with Insat-4CR and two more PSLV's, with one carrying various satellites. So from the schedule above we can exclude the successful launches and the GSLV launches. We now have:

March - PSLV - X-Sat
March - PSLV - TechSAR
June 30 - PSLV - Oceansat-2; CanX-2; AAU-Cubsat 2; Cute-1.7; APD-2; Compass-1; Delfi-C3; SEEDS-2
July - GSLV - Insat-4CR

A news posted January 21st 2007, says that Oceansat-2 would be launched at the end of 2007. Oceansat-2 was already listed to be launched together with some small sats. The more recent news say that this small sats are going to be launched with Cartosat-2A. I think that this is an error and that the satellite to be launched is indeed the Oceansat-2.

I couldn't find any info about the X-Sat and some sources point that the Isreali TechSAR will be launched by PSLV this year.

So, I think that we can say that the Indian launch schedule for the rest of 2007 will be:

June 30 - PSLV - Oceansat-2; CanX-2; AAU-Cubsat 2; Cute-1.7; APD-2; Compass-1; Delfi-C3; SEEDS-2
July ? - GSLV - Insat-4CR
????? - PSLV - TechSAR

According to this page http://www.utias-sfl.net/nanosatellites/CanX2/ the CanX-2 launch will take plave on June 30th, 2007.

Any help? Thanks!

As per todays this article, ( http://www.hindu.com/2007/04/25/stories/2007042501891500.htm ) Israeli Polaris launch is in August and Canadian Satellites before this year end, nothing it talked about GSLV's , I wonder why ISRO is not pushing its GLSV since it has its own cryogenic in hand,  apparently the MK3 version of GLSV will come online within a year I guess.

Also I wonder which satellite is ISRO planning to put with the polaris as it weighs only 300 kg.

One with more powerfull strap-ons for their Moon mission and 3 stage version that is supposed to fly in 2010.
Title: Re: Indian launches
Post by: Satori on 04/25/2007 01:47 pm
So, with this new informations the Indian launch schedule for the rest of 2007 will be:

August - PSLV-C9 (PSLV-CA) - Polaris
????? - GSLV-F03 - Insat-4CR
????? - PSLV-C10 (PSLV-CA) - Cartosat-2A; CanX-2; AAU-Cubsat 2; Cute-1.7; APD-2; Compass-1; Delfi-C3; SEEDS-2

So, what happen to Oceansat-2? Aren't they confusing this?

In here http://www.isro.org/rep2006/EOS%20System.htm they only talk of Cartosat-1 and Cartosat-2. The Cartosat-2 was launched by PSLV-C7 on January 10th this year.
Title: Re: Indian launches
Post by: spacejunkie79 on 05/02/2007 02:06 am
Apparently there is no Cartosat-2A. According to the ISRO Decade plan website:
http://isro.org/decade_plan.htm

and the ISRO 2007 report on Earth Observation Projects
http://www.isro.org/rep2007/Earth%20Observation.htm

There is only Oceansat-2 and RISAT and no Cartosat-2A in the Earth Imaging area.

In the PSLV platform there are C9, C10 and C11 planeed for 07-08. From what i have seen (new reports) here are the launches for 2007

August - PSLV-C9 (PSLV-CA) - Polaris
July - GSLV-F03 - Insat-4CR
30 June - PSLV-C10 (PSLV-CA) - Oceansat-2; CanX-2; AAU-Cubsat 2; Cute-1.7; APD-2; Compass-1; Delfi-C3; SEEDS-2
???? - GSLV- Tauvex-2 + GSAT-4

Launch of Insat 4-CR/GSLV is now planned for no erlier than November/December 2007. Since India possesses two launch sites and processing periodes between two launches have been in the range of about 5 months at least the following launch schedule seems feasible:

August 2007 Polaris/PSLV-CA (C-9)
October 2007 Oceansat 2 plus various secondary payloads/PSLV (C-10)
December 2007 Insat 4-CR/GSLV Mk-1(2) (C-1)
February/March 2008 Chandrayaan+MIP/PSLV-XL
April/May 2008 G-Sat 4 (Healthsat)+Tauvex-2/GSLV Mk-1(2) (C-2)

Well yes that is the plan apparently. You can check tthe sources @ the bottom of the wikipedia article and I have heard that the plan is 2014/15. They could do it as the GSLVIII has the launch capability (10T to leo) Whether they will is very different, but I suspect they will try to "keep up with the joneses" that is china.

I wish them all the best in space, and their launch vehicle offers new opportunities. They may soon be working on a GSLV-3 and RLV. As for India beating NASA to Mars, it's nice talk but all 'pie in the sky'
I suspect it's more likely they will be hitching a ride on Shuttle, CEV or Soyuz for sometime to come.

According to newKerala.com/ANI (http://www.newkerala.com/news5.php?action=fullnews&id=35040) the Insat-4CR launch is schedule for September.

August - PSLV-C9 (PSLV-CA) - Polaris
September - GSLV Mk-1(2) (C-1) - Insat 4-CR
October - PSLV-C10 - Oceansat 2, Oceansat-2; CanX-2; AAU-Cubsat 2; Cute-1.7; APD-2; Compass-1; Delfi-C3; SEEDS-2  

2008

February/March - PSLV-XL - Chandrayaan+MIP
April/May - GSLV Mk-1(2) (C-2) - G-Sat 4 (Healthsat)+Tauvex-2
July/August - PSLV - RI-Sat 1
September/October - GSLV Mk-2 (D-3) - Insat 3-D
Title: RE: Indian launch schedule
Post by: Watchdog on 06/10/2007 09:29 pm
It seems that the launch of the TechSAR satellite from Israel in August will be postponed and that India plans to launch its own spy satellite instead:

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/India/Indias_first_military_satellite_to_be_launched_in_August/articleshow/2112524.cms

However, it is not clear whether Cartosat 2-A will be launched as a single payload of the PSLV or in combination with the previously for the Oceansat 2 launch announced secondary payloads. The launch sequence might change accordingly.
Title: RE: Indian launch schedule
Post by: Satori on 06/10/2007 11:21 pm
Once again this is a very strange report. Check the first post of this page... according to the ISRO Decade plan site the is no Cartosat-2A. And also if you see the ISRO 2007 report on Earth Observation Projects ( http://www.isro.org/rep2007/Earth%20Observation.htm ) there is no Cartosat-2A.

So, we can have one of the two... or the report is simply wrong or we are talking about a new satellite, one that has been kept secrete until now... It looks like this is a purely military project with pure militarty aplications.
Title: RE: Indian launch schedule
Post by: Watchdog on 06/11/2007 10:57 pm
With your second speculation you are right. The following link answers several open questions about Cartosat-2A which indeed is a secret spy satellite developed as a common Indian/Israeli project in exchange for the launch opportunity of TECHSAR/Polaris on PSLV:

http://www.domain-b.com/aero/June/2007/20070611_military.htm

"India's armed forces are set to get their first dedicated military satellite this August, when the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) launches the Cartosat 2A along with an Israeli satellite, Polaris, and a cluster of six Canadian micro-satellites from a Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) from Sriharikota. The Cartosat 2A will be a military version of the Cartosat 2 satellite launched by ISRO in January this year."

"According to reports, the Cartosat 2A will carry an advanced synthetic aperture radar (SAR) made by Israel and a digital camera with a resolution of less than one metre." "The digital cameras on board Cartosat-2A will be far superior to those currently available with India's dual use, photo imagery satellites, such as the Resourcesat-1 and the Cartosat 1 & 2."
Title: RE: Indian launch schedule
Post by: Satori on 06/11/2007 11:18 pm

According to the following source the launch of the G-Sat 4/Tauvex-2 payloads will happen on board the GSLV Mk-2 (D-3) in March 2008. Instead the Insat 3-D weather satellite may be launched on GSLV Mk 1(2) (C-2).

http://news.moneycontrol.com/mccode/news/article/news_article.php?autono=296626

The launch of Oceansat 2/SRE-2 on a PSLV launcher should happen not before February 2008, probably in April 2008;).

At this time the Indian launch schedule is very confusing. All the reports indicate the Cartosat-2A launch with the Polaris Isreali military satellite.

I think we will have to wait for any info comingo from ISRO about this schedule (at this time I didn't saw any oficial confirmation for the 2007 remaining launch schedule). We may have two launches: one with a GSLV and another one with a PSLV, and I'm not sure if the Oceansat-2 will be launched this year. If we take into account the last post about this (from Dieter Kaemmer), Oceansat-2 will be launched in 2008.

I think a little explanation might be useful, to avoid confusions : some media speak about "six canadian microsatellites" launched piggyback.

But in fact Satori is right concerning this piggyback cluster : because it's only a matter of canadian management for the mission, not a matter of satellites' ownership :)

The next satellite to be launched is TECSAR (or TechSar). The name Polaris has been reported in several indian publications. An insider in the israeli aerospace industry reported, that the name of TECSAR is not Polaris, but i have no more details on the ominous Polaris-designation.

The information on the December launch are still contradicting.
Some sources report that the main payload will be Oceansat-2 (requiring a standard PSLV).
There have been indian reports some time ago, which told about four military versions of the CartoSat-2 spacecraft (called CartoSat-2A, -2B, -2C and -2D, see http://www.forceindia.net/june/feature2.asp ).  If these exist and are similar to the CartoSat-2 spacecraft, a PSLV-CA (Core-Alone) launch vehicle will be used. If the figures from above mentioned website are correct (Cartosat-2A 1100 kg vs. Cartosat-2 680 kg) it might be at the top limit for the PSLV-CA version.

The civilian CartoSat 2 is now operational.

Camera mis-alignment?

Understand that the camera of Cartosat2A is under re-evaluation/correction.

ISRO has posponed the launch of oceansat-2 as told here,it is true that oceansat-2 will go in some other pslv missions...

some un-confirmed reports suggest there's a brazilian or taiwanese satellite early next year...not sure if it is a solo mission or a piggyback...


Cartosat-2a wasn't made by ISRO and hence doesn't appear in any ISRO reports....and i guess it is a israel-made satellite as told here

There are conflicting reports whether PSLV will carry both Polaris and Cartosat 2A  or only Polaris.

The orbits of both are as follows :

                   POLARIS                                    Cartosat 2A

Altitude         550 Kms                                         637 Kms
Inclination       143.3 deg                                      98 deg
Launch Mass     300 Kgs                                        680 Kgs

( Ref :
http://directory.eoportal.org/pres_TecSARSARTechnologyDemonstrationSatellite.html
http://www.spacenewsfeed.co.uk/2007/14January2007_78.html  )


Is it possible for a rocket to steer about 45deg while rising from 550 Kms to 635 Kms?
Also whether the PSLV spacecraft bay will be able to accomodate both the satellites?

Some experts on launch vehicles should be able to comment.

i dont think that pslv in a core alone configuration can carry two satellites of that weight...(pslv c10 is core alone configuration)


cartosat-2a is 1110kg according to domain-b.com and add on that 500kg polaris...it will be impossible...unless a standard configuration is used(pslv c6 took around 1600kg)

maximum load of pslv-ca is 600kg...

so cartosat-2a cannot fly this time...

No, the delta-v is much to high for PSLVs 4th stage

Yes, the double launch structure has been used with the Cartosat-2, showing that a satellit of this class can use the PSLV-double-launch structure and it has also been used with AGILE on a PSLV-CA. So there is no reason,  which would prevent the use this time (except payload mass).

According to The Space Calendar (http://www2.jpl.nasa.gov/calendar/calendar.html), India will launch the PW-Sat (http://www.pw-sat.pl/) (in Polish) in January! This is a picosat so it is possible that the actual launch will be latter toghether with other small sats and a bigger one (maybe with OceanSat-2).

PW-Sat is a 1kg cubesat and will be piggyback on an other launch. Therfore it should not be listed as a PSLV launch of its own.

The OceanSat-2 launch is a likely candidate for launching PW-Sat, but i have not heared anything about a launch contract.

The NASA Space Calendar lists also a number of other PSLV Piggy-back payloads (Anusat, X-Sat) as PSLV-launches of their own, so we should be careful take the information from SC as a completely reliable source.

There are conflicting reports whether PSLV will carry both Polaris and Cartosat 2A  or only Polaris.

The orbits of both are as follows :

                   POLARIS                                    Cartosat 2A

Altitude         550 Kms                                         637 Kms
Inclination       143.3 deg                                      98 deg
Launch Mass     300 Kgs                                        680 Kgs

( Ref :
http://directory.eoportal.org/pres_TecSARSARTechnologyDemonstrationSatellite.html
http://www.spacenewsfeed.co.uk/2007/14January2007_78.html  )


Is it possible for a rocket to steer about 45deg while rising from 550 Kms to 635 Kms?
Also whether the PSLV spacecraft bay will be able to accomodate both the satellites?

Some experts on launch vehicles should be able to comment.

Yes it is possible if POLARIS is not a satellite but only a payload.

Refer to a post today  in another thread,  PSLV POLARIS :

"According to reports, the Cartosat 2A will carry an advanced synthetic aperture radar (SAR) made by Israel and a digital camera with a resolution of less than one metre. "

Israeli SAR on Cartosat-2A as a second payload? Also in such circumstances Isarelis can bring the SAR and 'go back' empty handed.

Surprising info from http://www.indiaprwire.com/businessnews/20071011/24892.htm :

India's space agency will in January launch a 'Third World' remote sensing satellite, images from which can be received free by universities and research organisations of developing countries.

'All they would need to spend is on a 3.7-metre dish antenna that will not cost much,' D.V.A. Raghavamurthy, Indian Space Research Organisation's (ISRO's) director of small satellite projects, said here recently. The imageries can be used for research, mapping, and disaster management, he said.

The Third World Satellite (TWSAT) that will circle the globe at a height of about 630 km will weigh only 100 kg - thanks to advanced technologies used to miniaturize payloads. The satellite will have a life of three years and will be controlled from Bangalore, Raghavamurthy said.

The TWSAT is the first of several micro and mini satellites in the 100-kg and 450-kg class that ISRO is planning to launch in the next five years, R.M. Samudraiah of the ISRO Space Application Centre in Ahmedabad told IANS.

According to Samudraiah, ISRO will set up a constellation of three micro-satellites for agriculture resource monitoring and another constellation of three mini-satellites to generate daily information on oceans.

A micro-satellite to measure aerosol and trace gases and a mission for study of earth's near space environment are being considered with a constellation of two mini-satellites, Samudraiah said.

One more micro-satellite called Youthsat will be built along with Moscow University and launched in 2009, he said.

Also to be launched in 2009 is the Indo-French mission called SARAL that will use ISRO's 450-kg satellite platform equipped with France-supplied instruments to study ocean circulation and sea surface elevation.

India runs a full test of its own Cryo engine for use in GSLV launcher.





From Hindu, a newspaper from India

quote/


Bangalore, Nov. 16

The Indian GSLV satellite launcher is now fully indigenous. The home-made cryogenic upper stage to power it has ‘arrived’, albeit some ten years later than it could have.

ISRO on Thursday evening completed the last crucial ground test for a full-flight duration of 720 seconds at the Liquid Propulsion Systems Centre, Mahendragiri. This puts the country in an upper-crust ‘cryo club’ comprising the US, Russia, Europe and Japan.

The cryo upper stage (CUS) has been developed over ten years at a cost of nearly Rs 450 crore. It will go into the GSLV rockets that are meant to lift two-tonne-plus loads to a distance of 36,000 km in space. ISRO said the crucial milestone validates its design robustness and performance adequacy for use in the GSLV.
Ground tests

The latest success was the climax of challenging ground tests done under severe conditions – for 50 seconds in December 2006 and 480 seconds in August 2007, the ISRO Chairman, Mr G. Madhavan Nair, told Business Line. “We are jubilant. We could achieve more (than what some other agencies could). The GSLV is now 100 per cent indigenous and we don’t any more have to use the Russian stages,” he said from Thiruvananthapuram.

With ground tests cleared, the CUS will get real in 2008 when the GSLV-D3 launches the experimental Gsat-4, said Mr P.S. Sastry, Director, ISRO Launch Vehicle Programme Office. It would power the upper stage of all future GSLVs, he said.
VENDOR DEALS

The CUS also increases ISRO’s outsourcing to industry: over 100 private and public sector companies were involved, Mr Nair said. The sophisticated materials came from Mishra Dhatu Nigam; the tank structures from Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd; engines from Godrej MTAR; and liquid propellants from Andhra Sugars; and smaller components and services from others such as Keltec and Lakshmi Machine Tools.

Mr Nair said ISRO had signed three-year contracts with its vendors for the next five GSLV launches. A five-year sourcing plan was being prepared. The agency plans to have at least two GSLV and 3-4 PSLV launches a year, he said.

In the next two years, the upper stage could be fine tuned to increase the GSLV’s lifting capability to 2.5 kg.

While cost of building an indigenous GSLV launcher – at Rs 170 crore a piece – was only 70-80 per cent of the international cost, the indigenous CUS would not make much difference to a commercial bill, Mr Nair said.
HARD LESSONS

A cryo stage is far more efficient than liquid or solid propellant stages. The CUS programme took off after the US torpedoed an Indo-Russian cryogenic technology transfer plan in the 1990s.The national space programme cannot import it as the Missile Technology Control Regime prohibits this.

According to ISRO spokesman, Mr S. Satish, the arduous CUS journey involved doing many things from scratch: building a test facility; learning to handle liquid hydrogen, oxygen and materials at low temperatures; developing special aluminium and other alloys that do not get brittle at minus 200 degrees Celsius; fabrication of high-rpm pumps, among others.

The blurb mentions only a test of an air-breathing engine prototype. This engine sounds a lot like the SABRE engine that Reaction Engines developed in the UK 20 years ago. As the article says, a reusable 1st stage is still 20 years away.

This is very interesting indeed!!!

My source pointed the fact that the PSLV that will launch Polaris is indeed ready for launch but the Isrealis wanted India to launch another PSLV before the one that carry Polaris. Why? Well, the 2nd stage of the PSLV is also the 2nd stage of the GSLV launcher and it was this stage that underperformed in the last GSLV mission. So Isreal want's India to make another successful PSLV (2nd stage) flight before allowing Polaris to be launched. If the Polaris launch is indeed schedule for January 2, it looks like this scenario has changed...

The OceanSat-2 satellite will be launched by PSLV-C11 or PSLV-C12.

So, trying to (re)define the Indian launch schedule...

January 2 (?) - PSLV-C10, FLP - Polaris (TecSar/TechSAR)
January 25 - PSLV-C9, SLP - CartoSat-2A; NSL-4 (CanX-2; AAU-Cubsat 2; Cute-1.7+APD II; COMPASS-1; Delfi-C3; SEEDS-2)
April 9 - PSLV-XL - Chandrayaan-1; MIP
June - GSLV Mk-1(2) (C-2) - G-Sat 4 (Healthsat)+Tauvex-2
September/October - GSLV Mk-2 (D-3) - Insat 3-D
September - PSLV - AstroSat
October - PSLV - RI-Sat 1
October - PSLV-C11 (12?) - OceanSat-2; SRE-2
????? 2008 - GSLV - GLONASS-M

POLARIS is a Low Earth Orbiting Satellite  and PSLV has been proven beyond any doubt for LEO. Of course the added factor for Polaris is that of its inclination, but for that matter PSLV has even launched a equatorial satellite. So there is no reason for Israel to worry about PSLV performance for LEO. Of course one does get nervous by the news of an under-performed launch on the eve of the launch of your satellite. But in this case the two launches are totally different categories.

I think the concern is that the rockets have common parts. It's the same reason that the Atlas V was grounded earlier this year, after a Zenit 3SL failed.

PSLV C10 polaris launch on january 2nd looks impossible...as far as my knowledge goes the vehicle was destacked and only first stage is at the pad...stacking within days is remote possibilty....

but at the same time...it may be like TES launch...which went on in a highly clandestine manner with isro maintaing that the satellite is not TES but IRS P6 upto the 11thhour and coast guard providing aerial and naval recognnaisance support...!!!!

anyways i loook forward to a launch very soon...

According to current schedule, all future Glonass-M satellites (six in 2008, six in 2009, six in 2010, three in 2011) will be launched by Proton-M rockets...

The first four Glonass-K satellites (two in 2010, two in 2012) will be launched by Soyuz-2 rockets... Glonass-K satellites can be launched by GSLV rockets, but it is unknown (for me, at least) when it will be and whether it will be at all...

I'm sceptical on any GLONASS-M launches by GSLV. But there is a article in the lates HAL newsletter which has some interesting news:
Aerospace Division added another feather to its cap with the handing over of the documents of the First Payload Assist Module for GSLV MK-II Rocket (PAM-G). The papers were formally handed over by Mr R. Srinivasan GM (SP) to Mr V. Ganesan, Project Director PAM-G of ISRO. The structure is made of composite materials and will be used at the fourth stage of
propulsion for putting the 1400-kg Russian satellite 'Glonassm' into medium earth orbit
of about 19,100 km.

Just to avoid confusion: this PAM-G (Payload Assist Module) has nothing to do with the US PAM solid fuel upper stages. It is in fact a modified liquid-fueled fourth stage of the PSLV rocket.

ISRO may get more satellite launch contracts (http://www.thehindubusinessline.com/2008/01/23/stories/2008012350332800.htm)
ISRO’s arm Antrix Corporation may be snapping up some more satellite launch contracts from global customers.

The ISRO Chairman, Dr G. Madhavan Nair, indicated as much. “We expect that in the near term, two major contracts will come through. We have already signed a contract for half a dozen small satellites,” he told Business Line. The small or nanosats have been built by Canadian and Dutch universities.

One of the prime but domestic contracts, which may be coming up in February, is Cartosat-2A. Mr Nair said the spacecraft, built at the Bangalore satellite centre, “has just been shifted today”. The earth observation satellite is a Ministry of Defence mission, with no details coming from ISRO.

He was speaking from Chennai hours after a PSLV rocket put an Israeli reconnaissance satellite, the 300-kg TecSAR/ Polaris, into orbit from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre.

There are reports that the launch contracts of two more upcoming TecSARs may also be coming to Antrix. Mr Nair merely said, “They [Israel] are happy with this launch perfect. If they come with a request for any other launch, we will have to see the merit of the case, if it is attractive and comes with a good price, etc.”

Mr Nair admitted a delay in the launch of TecSAR. “We had some technical problems around September-October. By the time we resolved them, we got into the severe monsoon period of Sriharikota.”

The PSOM-XL motor which will replace the older strap-ons was  static tested around 2 times....i think that it may take 2-3 months for a launcher to be stacked up...the first stage and third stage is made at SDSC-SHAR....so it depends on the other two stages arriving here...


april 9th looks a remote possibility as of now...but there is still 2 months...so may be and i hope they spped up things and stick to that date...nowthat the first launch pad is free...with  the launch of PSLV C10

A more detailed news is available in Hyderabad Edition  of Times of India. ( Even other editions of Times don't have this detailed news ). I have included the text because for reading the e-edition of TOI one needs to register and login.

Quote
Mumbai: The much-awaited Indian moon mission, “Chandrayaan-1,’’ which was originally slated for lift off on April 9,2008, from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre, Sriharikota, has been tentatively postponed to June or July, because of technical reasons, project director, Mylaswamy Annadurai, stated.
   Speaking to TOI on Tuesday from Bangalore, Annadurai explained that a number of issues relating to the integration of the scientific payloads with the main lunar orbiter have yet to be sorted out. “This has caused the nearly two-and-ahalf month delay,’’ he said.
   The man who has been entrusted with the challenging task of taking India to the moon said that of the 11 scientific payloads — five Indian and six foreign — four of the international payloads have already been integrated into the orbiter.
   “The remaining seven are now in an advanced stage of integration, and the process will be completed by the end of March,’’ Annadurai said.
   Annadurai said that two foreign payloads, one from the United Kingdom and the other from Sweden,have yet to arrive. “There has been some delay,’’ he said. In addition an Indian payload known as the Moon Impact Probe (MIP) which will detach from the orbiter and crash land on the lunar surface is still getting ready.
   The idea of having Moon Impact Probe was suggested by none other than APJ Abdul Kalam during an international lunar conference in Udaipur in November 2004. The probe is being developed by the Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre at Thiruvanathanapuram.
   Annadurai said that the next launch date should conform to all the mission parameters. “This is the reason why the June-July period should be okay keeping in view the position of the moon and it should be ideal for retargetting,’’ he said. If the lift off is in June then the launch campaign will begin in the middle of May.
   He said that on February 18, 19 and 20 a meeting has been convened in Bangalore of all the principal scientific investigators to review the position and hopefully firm up the next launch schedule.
   Other Indian Space Research Ornisation (Isro) officials told TOI that in a major mission like flying to the moon, such delays were inevitable.
   They cited the example of the Japanese moon mission,”Selene,’’ which was originally scheduled to take off in August 2007, but was launched a month later.
   Similarly, the launch of the Chinese moon mission, “Change’e-1,’’ was delayed by six months from April 2007 to October 2007 on account of technical reasons.
   Meanwhile, Indian Space Research Organisation will be launching an advanced mapping satellite, “Cartosat-2a from Sriharikota. Hectic preparations were currently underway for this mission, an space agency official said.

another forum also suggested that launch has been put off...i will confirm soon...

Of late information from SDSC has been low due to CARTOSAT-2A being a military one...

India plans 70 space missions in five years
Bangalore (PTI): India plans to undertake 70 space missions in five years, a nearly three-fold jump from the previous half-decade, as it seeks to address requirements and develop new technologies to meet future needs.

"We have proposed something like 70 missions totally (in the 11th plan (April one 2007 to March 31, 2012) compared to about 26 missions in the tenth plan period," Chairman of Indian Space Research Organisation, G Madhavan Nair, told reporters on the sidelines of a function here.

The proposed missions have a "good mix" of both INSAT class satellites as well as remote sensing ones, he said.

Nair, also Secretary in the Department of Space, indicated that the aim is to address requirements of the area of communication transponders and work in the fields of microwave remote sensing, hyper spectral and other new technologies of the future.

"Future developments will be towards the manned space mission and reusable satellites and Ka-band satellites," he added.

The 2008-09 annual budget for the Space Department has gone upto Rs 4,072 crore, a 25 per cent increase over the previous financial year, ISRO officials said.

the article was refering to nano-sats to be launched by isro and not the nanosats on pslv c9 alone....

the utias website is giving a pic which shows all the sats in flight configuration....( i have added this pic in my album)

No, the pods remain fixed on the stage. They are used secure the Cubesat during launch  and to deploy the cubesats in orbit. It is just a standardized dispenser for Cubesats.

to SATORI...

i dont have a confirmation as yet but i will find it out soon...BUT OCEANSAT-2 AND SRE-2 ARE CO-PASSENGERS ON A SAME PSLV FLIGHT AS OF NOW...

one more thing i came to know recently is...

IT MAY HAPPEN THAT GSLV-D3(INDIGINEOUS CRYO STAGE) WILL FLY BEFORE PSLV-C11(CHANDRAYAAN-1)....THIS IS STILL NOT 100% CONFIRMED...THEN PSLV-C11 CHANDRAYAAN MISSION MAY MOVE TO DECEMBER(THIS IS STILL SPECULATION)

GSLV-D3 MAY BE DURING SEPTEMBER-OCTOBER FROM "SLP"

ISRO Chairman: "The immediate thing is Chandrayaan. Right now, integration of the satellite is progressing. We hope to launch in the third quarter of 2008. That will be followed by the launch of the GSLV, by the end of the year. This will be the GSLV Mk 2 with the indigenous cryogenic stage."

Sounds like there will only be one GSLV launch in 2008.

No, we are talking about Insat 3D, which has not yet been launched. It is a pure meteorological satellite.

I was trying to update the Indian launch schedule but the information available is confusing. The previous plans called for a launch in July / August, a GSLV in September / October and a PSLV in November / December. We know that this plans have changed but we don't have any news about those changes.

There are various sats listed to be launched by India (Oceansat-2; Anusat; X-Sat; SRE-2; RI-Sat 1; YouthSat; etc...) but at this time the schedule is so confusing that I will need some help to do the schedule!

So, any help?

There is no contradiction between the two dates, M. Nair had in mind the fiscal year when he said "by year-end". In India the fiscal year goes from April 1 to March 31.

hi all, after long time...

on SLP, mock operations are going on with a dummy first-second stage of GSLV and the new INDIAN cryo stage...

That's why we have the forum, for people to give us notice of any schedule updates. I can tell you that sometimes it's more dificult to put togheter the schedule for the Indian launches than the schedule for the Chinese launches.

From the ISRO planning, how many of those missions were already delayed? Also, I think that at present there are no plans to launch GLONASS sats from Indian launchers.

The plan is from 2006, is there any updates about it?

well let me please add a few things here....

As per what ISRO chairman has said...they are supposed to launch 6 rockets in a year in the current five year plan...


but the truth is as of now that looks impossible...with ISRO facing Human Resource problems and many other delays on administrative side...

all the current launches are actually, left outs from the previous five year plan...

as of now there are two confirmed launches and the work is going on here...

PSLV C12   OCEANSAT-2 + (other sats...probably no SRE-2)
GSLV D3(?)  GSAT-4+ TAUVEX

a january launch is IMPOSSIBLE....there is no stacking operation going on as yet.
 
Title: Re: Indian launch schedule
Post by: isro-watch on 12/09/2008 02:03 pm
IMS is not one satellite...it is actually a series like the IRS....the first being TWSAT(third world sat) or IMS-1...

on a lighter note...the name third world sat was odd...guess what ISRO will do if requested by SUPARCO(PAKISTAN SPACE AGENCY) to have a downlink terminal there...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Title: Re: Indian launch schedule
Post by: johnxx9 on 12/09/2008 02:15 pm
I dont think there is any kind of Human Resource problems! Actual work on the following satellites are on going----------
Healthsat, OceanSat, IRNSS-1, Astrosat, INSAT-XX and also SRE-2!
SRE-2 is already in the middle stages as work started in July 2008 after India announced 100 crores for preliminary analysis of manned mission!
SRE-2 is a part of that plan! It could go on in Sept-Oct 2009!

No it isn't. Check the isro press release: ISRO site: http://isro.org/pressrelease/Dec20_2008.htm

The isro press release is usually atleast 3 days older than the release to press. I agree with the Sartori, it is very hard to predict their launch schedule when they update their website once in a blue moon.

The 500 kg number was for the originally planned Megha-Tropiques version using the french Proteus Bus. Since then,the MT satellite has been redesigned on the basis of the indian IRS bus, which is far  heavier but cheaper. MT is now in the 1500 kg class leaving far less capacity for piggyback payloads.

Dear all,

After having followed this forum and thread for quite a while already, it seems to be the right time to add some information now ourself. Especially with the discussion on the nationality of the four soon-to-be-launched CubeSats ongoing.

We will officially announce the following information soon as well, but for your information I can already confirm that there will indeed be 4 single unit CubeSats accompanying Oceansat-2 on trip to orbit. These are as stated above:

1. UWE-2 from University of Wuerzburg, Germany
2. BEESAT from Technical University Berlin, Germany
3. ITUpSAT-1 from Istanbul Technical University, Turkey
4. SwissCube from Ecole Polytechnique Fédéral de Lausanne, Switzerland

The last CubeSat, SwissCube, will be a predecessor of the one that is currently scheduled for the VEGA Maiden Flight late this year/early next year.

With our Delft, the Netherlands, based company, ISIS - Innovative Solutions In Space BV, we are the launch service interface for these small satellites, in cooperation with Antrix/ISRO. We have multiple launch opportunities scheduled for 2009 and 2010 (and beyond), which may be found on our ISILaunch Services website www.isilaunch.com. We will initiate and update a dedicated page to the upcoming ISILaunch01 campaign as well.

More information on ISIS, specialized in nanosatellite systems, services and missions, can be found at www.isispace.nl.

Feel free to contact us for any additional questions.

Kind regards,

Title: Re: Indian launch schedule
Post by: ISILaunch on 01/14/2009 09:43 am
Dear isro-watch,

We have indeed agreed launch opportunities for a number of PSLV launches. The dates on our opportunity website are the tentative launch dates as they have been indicated by the LSP.

The March/April, 550km, 41 degree inclination launch opportunity indeed is not the flight of OceanSat-2, you are correct. This is the launch of another indigenous Indian satellite, which currently seems to be scheduled in parallel with that of Oceansat-2 (scheduled for a ~720 km SSO launch indeed).

We have no further confirmation on an exact date for either of these two launches at this moment.

As you assume, we will indeed keep our flight status page up to date with any official changes in schedule. I will make sure to mention any updates here as well.

thanks a lot ISIlaunch...


as per my knowledge...two PSLVs are scheduled to be launched .... one in MARCH and the other in APRIL...

an inclination of 41 degrees does not correspond to either Megha tropiques (20 degrees) nor Astrosat(9 degrees)...or any other known mission !!!! So, i was little sceptical...
Title: Re: Indian launch schedule

Most probably, both the RISAT and Oceansat are going to be launched at one go because both are in the IRS series and all IRS series satellites are placed in a Sun synchronous orbit of about 97-98 degrees inclination. And as you said, Astrosat is going on near-equatorial orbit. I don't know, I'll try !!!

I would like to add that until there is a confirmation of date by ISRO...allthis is a kind of speculation.

as of now there are two launch vehicles here...one on the first launch pad and the other on the second...

activity is ON...in both the pads...and both are PSLVs....

There is a launch in march last week-april first week time frame...

oceansat-2 looks the most likely contender for a early launch...but I was informed by some one...that the foreign sats have not yet arrived...there seems to be some other sats apart from the 4 sats from ISIS...(IN MOST REPORTS THESE SATS HAVE BEEN REFERRED TO AS NONO-SATS FROM NETHERLANDS...ACTUALLY ISIS is from NETHERLANDS...FURTHER THE REPOERTS SAY 3...THAT ONE MORE SAT BEING ADDED BY ISIS RECENTLY...)

CHANDRAYAAN-2 TO BE FOLLOWED BY CHANDRAYAAN-3

A UNMANNED MISSION BEFORE A MANNED MISSION BY 2015...going the chinese way i guess.

New Delhi: The Planning Commission has shown the green light to the Rs 12,400-crore manned space mission of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) scheduled for launch by 2015.

“We had a good meeting. The general inference is that ISRO has done an expert job and it needs to be supported. The Planning Commission will support it,” said Commission Deputy Chairman Montek Singh Ahluwalia who had a two-hour meeting last Friday with top ISRO scientists and officials of the Department of Space.

Ahluwalia said the Human Space Flight project would be executed in two phases. In the first phase, an unmanned flight would be launched in 2013-14 and the second stage in 2014-15 would be a two-man mission.

K Radhakrishnan, Space Commission member and Director of the Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre, said ISRO wanted to secure formal approval of the plan panel for the project to take off. The Rs 12,400-crore expenditure would include setting up long-term facilities and inputs needed for the space vehicle and its entire get-up.

“We intend to put two persons in the vehicle and launch them into space for seven days in an orbit of 275 km,” Radhakrishnan said. Though he did not elaborate, it is learnt that the manned mission would use the Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV).

Although ISRO would be the lead agency in executing the project, Radhakrishnan said other agencies were also expected to lend support.

India plans a manned mission to moon by 2020.

Professor Yash Pal, who served as the first Director of the Space Applications Centre in Ahmedabad from 1973 to 1981, said Indians are already in space and have the capability to deliver on a manned space flight. “We are already in space. We are better placed than what the Americans did earlier.” Yash Pal also attended the meeting last Friday.

Late last year, ISRO chairman G Madhavan Nair had announced that India expected to accomplish a manned space mission in 7-8 years and would undertake its manned moon mission by 2020.

And in January this year, M Annadurai, project director of Chandrayaan-I, said the successful launch of Chandrayaan-I last October had given space scientists the confidence to undertake a manned mission to the moon.

He said the Chandrayaan-II mission was expected to be undertaken within a couple of years and would be followed by Chandrayaan-III. The Chandrayaan-I mission, he said, was sending considerable amount of data and scientists were busy analysing it.

According to Annadurai, several countries have approached India to set up a common lunar research centre for conducting studies.

I am pretty sure that there is only a single GSLV launch this year and it will be carrying Gsat-3(HealthSAT) and Israeli TAUVEX-2. And the vehicle is GSLV- Mk 2

And again, we have a problem with the planned inclination Oceansat. It's basically a remote sensing satellite to be placed in sun-synchronous orbit of around 97 degree inclination whereas the cubesats BeeSat; UWE-2; ITU-pSat1; SwissCube-1 etc are to be placed in an orbit with 41 degree inclination. I don't see them going together.

And there is also a test launch of the GSLV-Mk 3 in 2010 and the first of the IRNSS constellation will also take place in 2009-2010.

the above url from ISIS site suggests a end April launch for Oceansat-2 along with beesat+ and other sats from ISIS...


to john,

Beesat and all are to be launched into 720km SSO and not 40 deg inclination orbit...

To isro-watch, john:

To confirm, as isro-watch already pointed out, the ISILaunch01 cluster will be launched along with Oceansat-2 to a 720km Sun Synchronous Orbit. I do not know the origin of the confusion with the 41 degree launch, but this inclination is not suitable for (most of) the four auxiliary satellites on board. 

Currently, the launch is scheduled still for end of April, pending the status and success of the preceding launch late this month. As soon as we have a launch date, we will announce this on our campaign overview page.

The satellites will be transferred to the launch site after this month's launch.

PSLV LAUNCH IS SCHEDULED ON MARCH 30/APRIL 7 ...OCEANSAT BY END-APRIL/EARLY MAY

i have not been able to confirm the sats(...will revert back to u soon on it...)
but probably it is RISAT + ANUSAT as indicated in the press...

will PSLV have enough trust to carry a 1780kg RISAT and 34kg ANUSAT.... a combined weight of above 1800kg in a XL config....??!!??

************************************************************
as the PSLV scheduled to carry OCEANSAT-2 is now being called PSLV C14... SO that makes another PSLV (pslv c13) ready for flight...some of my sources point to a upcoming foreign sat launch...clear picture to emerge in coming days...

so by july'09 (adding 2 months for delays..by SEMPTEMBER '09)
We may have...

PSLV C12     RISAT+ANUSAT
PSLV C14     OCEANSAT-2+
PSLV C13     MEGHA(???)
GSLV D3      GSAT-4+TAUVEX

The present government will be doing a political suicide if this report is indeed true.

I am sure that there is one israeli satellite...many israeli seen around here too...when asked of
the satellite one person just told me that the israeli sat has some thing to do with research on polar regions...
and that it is a nanosat...!!!!!!

maybe the whole reports in the media in the month of febraury were just an eyewash...and ISRO

may be launching an ISRAELI satellite under the pretext of a RISAT launch...note that INDIAN RISAT-1

is a round 1750kg in weight and cannot be launched by a core- alone configuration of PSLV. Further

the sudden postponement of OCEANSAT-2 to a launch on PSLV C14 instead of PSLV C12 when the launch vehicle was already being assembled adds to my suspicion.

YES THE SAT IS BEING CALLED RISAT-2...AND IT IS AROUND THE SAME WEIGHT AS TECHSAR...300Kg.

NOTE THAT RISAT-1 IS 1750kg AND RISAT-2 IS TO FLY ON A PSLV CORE ALONE VERSION WITH A MAX CAPACITY OF 1000KG ONLY.

MAY BE THIS IS THAT 40 DEG INCLINATION LAUNCH WE HAD TALKED OF IN THSI FORUM.

CURRENT TEMPORARY LAUNCH DATE : APTRIL 7/8.

Report: India, France to launch weather satellite early next year 
 
www.chinaview.cn  2009-03-27 15:09:19
 
    NEW DELHI, March 27 (Xinhua) -- India and France will jointly launch early next year a weather satellite to monitor air and water movements over the tropic areas of the world, said local newspaper Mail Today Friday.

    The satellite, Megha Tropiques, will gather comprehensive tropical weather data related to the global warming, said the report.

    "Megha Tropiques will be capable of studying cloud systems, radiation, water vapor and temperature and humidity in our troposphere on a more frequent basis," the report quoted an unnamed spokesperson from Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO)as saying.

    The French space agency, Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales, is collaborating with ISRO in the project, said the report.

    Megha Tropiques will carry four scientific payloads and be placed in an orbit 800 km above the equator, according to the report.

I am not sure of that...ISRO has two pads and has divided the teams evenly...so even if one project is slow, I don't think there is any reason to stop the other one..But a April end launch of Oceansat-2 is doubtful.

1. One of my source gave me a eye-witness account...stating that RISAT-2 is similar to Techsar in
appearence.

2. The vehicle was supposed to be moved to the launch pad on Apr 15...Hope it is done by now.

3. This launch is to be followed by two PSLV launches...that makes GSLV D3 launch further delayed

4. One of those launches is PSLV C14 carrying Oceansat-2+ISIS payloads...ISIS website states it

as "current campaign" with launch date "end-april"....hope it holds.

I just found out that we updated the tentative launch date on our campaign website right after isro-watch's post. The official date was still set at end of April until very recently.

As the PSLV-C12 launch now seems to go ahead on Monday, we expect to have a more detailed update in the following week or two. For now, we may assume PSLV-C14 to follow in (the second half of) May.

We'll keep you posted.

Mr. Nair said it would be “a season of fireworks” this year at Sriharikota with a series of
“major missions” lined up by the ISRO. By June end, a PSLV will put in orbit ISRO’s
Oceansat-2. Another PSLV will deploy in orbit Resourcesat-2. A Geo-Synchronous
Satellite Launch Vehicle, with an indigenous cryogenic stage, would also lift off from
Sriharikota. The indigenous Radar Imaging Satellite RISAT-1 too may go up by this year-end.

Oceansat will be ready in two months according to this article (http://www.business-standard.com/india/news/isro-to-launch-three-satellites-this-year/357739/)
According to the Chairman of ISRO there will be no more than 3 launches until the end of 2009:
-Oceansat-2 NET mid-July with PSLV
- [GSAT-4/TAUVEX] "in the next 3 months" (i.e. August to October?) with GSLV
- [Resourcesat-2] with PSLV "towards the end of the year" (i.e. December 2009?)

GSAT-4+TAUVEX IN 3 MONTHS....POSSIBLE...
OCEANSAT-2 ACCORDING TO BEST OF MY KNOWLEDGE IS PLANNED FOR END JUNE(JUNE 20s TO BE EXACT)...

ISRO IS HAVING 3 VEHICLES ALONG WITH SATS READY...AND TO SAY EVEN BEFORE MID OF A YEAR...THAT THEY WILL LAUNCH ONLY 3 MORE IS PRE-MATURE.

IF U LOOK CAREFULLY...THE ARTICLE I GAVE AND THE ARTICLE U PUT POINT TO THE SAME LECTURE GIVEN BY ISRO CHIEF....AND HE WAS REFERRING TO UPCOMING LAUNCHES WITHIN THE NEXT THREE MONTHS.

IF ALL GOES WELL I EXPECT ISRO TO LAUNCH 3 PSLVs(C14,C15,C13) AND 1 GSLV (D3) BY THE END OF YEAR...AND ONE MORE PSLV BY THE END OF THIS FINANCIAL YEAR(APRIL 2010).

IRNSS in 2009 is really strange considering...

1. PSLV-HP has to be made first. No ground tests reported.

2. The launch log is already full.

3. But a launch in this financial year 2009-10 cannot be ruled out.

Can a xl config PSLV put a IRNSS sat....considering 1320kg and 250*25000 orbit???

PSLV-XL had put the Chandrayaan-1 which weighed 1,380 kg into a 255 X 24,000 km orbit. So I think it should be able to put the 1,370 kg IRNSS into a 250 X 24,000 orbit. I am pretty sure XL can do it as it had put Chandrayaan-1 into an almost identical orbit.

Throwing light on the future plans of ISRO, Krishnaswamy said: “Our youth-sat, a dedicated satellite for scientific experiments pursued by undergraduate and post-graduate students from various universities in India, will be launched buy ISRO at the end of this year.”

Well, although they say that Youthsat will be launched by the end of this year (as the case with many others), I am expecting a 2010-1st or 2nd quarter launch at the earliest.

ISRO has done this...I think those names can be altered. But what happens in many cases is that because of lack of information or small amount of info made available to the media...We tend to get confused with the names.

Consider the case of RISAT-1/2...there was confusion till the fag end...even now...wikipedia shows "C13" name not being used bcoz of "fear of the number 13"...but RISAT-1 will fly on C13...may be next year...(another example...GSLV F04 was launched...F03 not yet launched yet)

ISRO kind of behaves like the chinese, when it comes to information. I wish they had a site like "ariane space"...I wish I could convey this to them at the highest level. [:)]

I'm assuming that India will launch it (Japan don't have anything scheduled around that time, and couldn't call up an H-IIA that quickly, and it seems unlikely that they would be able to get a launch contract with another country in that time).

SRE-II?
Yes! It is SRE-2. It is should be launched in October with RISAT-1, because there there no other launch to that 600 km SSO except RISAT-1. I'm not sure if PSLV can lift all that weight. Still, it's supposed to be launched by the end of this year for a week long mission.
It is out of Rs 100 crore sanctioned last year for preliminary studies on Human Spaceflight Programme.
Title: Re: Indian launch schedule
Post by: m.prasad on 06/16/2009 01:10 pm
It SRE-2 has to go this year there seems 2 possible options:
1. Go with Cardosat-2B (as mentioned in Reply #383)
2. With CA version alone

Risat-1 + SRE-2 weighs more than 2000kg so exceeds the XL version capability, I believe.

The Gagan payloads are not free flying, they will be part of GSAT-4/GSAT-8/GSAT-9 's payloads (similar to EGNOS or WAAS payloads integrated on various satellites in other regions)

On the same subject, Tauvex-II is not free flying either. It is composed of 2 boxes (electronic unit and optical unit) sitting on a plate mounted on the East Panel of GSAT-4.

This mission profile (http://www.isro.org/rep2009/images/mission-profile.jpg) is not uptodate. It looks like it has been drawn some months ago: Chandrayaan-2 is still marked for a launch in FY2011 (now planned for 2013), GSAT-7 and GSAT-11 are missing (while the latter has been approved recently).
This mission profile also implies that SRE-2 would not be launched with Cartosat-2B, neither Youthsat with Resourcesat-2.

I don't know how it is in other countries...I guess it is the same....

Every financial year starts from April of a year and ends by March of the next year...so when ISRO says 2008-2009, it means April 2008 to March 2009. Even ISRO's annual reports use this timeline.

1. ISRO's schedule is very tight with the current work force they have. It has got many budget allotments; but very tough to finish according to the schedule. Then 1 question comes: why they have to give unrealistic schedule - Just to impress the politicians to get more funds; to impress public & press by showing the launch-rich schedule as the public & press always feel very great about ISRO's activities because India is a growing country & never has any presence in such highly technical capable areas.

2. As most of you aware, in India, most of the govt organizations work in this manner only. Lack of monitoring from higher level (here govt) makes most of these organizations to work in very slow pace. One more reason is: Lack of responsibility from the organizations. But ISRO doesn't come under this category completely but up to some extent. If you compare ISRO's activities & performance with DRDO's, ISRO is much better.

By the way, Sept 5 is announced by Nair (published by a regional news paper). Hope it holds good :-)

Being indirectly associated with ISRO...I cannot accept even a word of negative statements about ISRO. I honour it and its men.

Well, I accept part of the problem is with the workforce. Many of them are new and run away to better jobs in the non-government sectors after a few years. What ISRO needs is a dedicated workforce who are willing to give their best...(On a lighter note, I wish we were like the chinese...forced people to work or else face punishment)

But in this case I don't think manpower is the problem...Atleast in SHAR, many PS1 stage motors are rusting...just waiting to get launched!! Anyways I will post any information I gather around.

Direct quotes from ISRO officials and the articles where they were quoted; Diagrams with forecasting from official organizations and the links to check the source.

These are the things I am not seeing very often. Maybe I just have not looked hard enough.

ie. "Launch schedule:

The information provided here on this forum is definitely not heresay...
If you go through the posts completely, there are credible sources which build the launch log. ISIS and UTIAS have contracts with ISRO to launch a number of cubesats/nanosats and they have given a expected launch date/month along with the orbital parameters. In most cases, the primary satellite is found by tallying these orbital parameters.(you can find the orbital parameters of upcoming sats on ISRO website)

Add on to this..there are few people on this forum who work for ISRO and know few things before the media comes to know of it and have posted here. Even I have posted here without any media article based proofs...(Initially I had put in here whatever came to my knowledge from various sources but nowadays I wait for more credible and multiple souces and sometimes wait till atleast some media article pop up...For example, I have read of a visit by a team from "MacDonald Dettwittler and associates" for the upcoming launch of their satellite named "sapphire" onboard a PSLV in 2010...But I don't have any more info so never posted it here...)

Further there are media reports like from the newspaper "The Hindu" detailing on some aspects and adding on information.

I have been following this forum and posting here for almost more than a year now and I am sure the information here is correct to the best in public domain...But we cannot be sure of the exact launch dates as ISRO is plauged with delays.

I think this news article in an old one....Actually this news is about 2-3 months old and only now in public domain.

Chandrayaan-1 malfunction with regard to heat/radiation problems came days after it entered moon's orbit and this was kept away from media glare and only now that ISRO has totally lost chandrayaan-1, it is talking of the sats problems in public.This decision would have been taken before and MAY BE this is the reason for the delay in oceansat-2...allowing the fully stacked vehicle to rot.

This article talks of a spring loaded system to place the cubesats into orbit.

We cannot rule out a Dec launch. Anyways I am a little skeptical of this. Many a time ISRO officials have stressed in the media that the launch would be in December.

One more thing I would like to point out is the cryogenic stage is the last and final stage and is moved to the pad only when the launch is scheduled...Just because cryo stage is not stacked up there, we cannot rule out a launch...They have one full month to prepare...The whole of November....Cryo stage has arrived in SHAR.

ISRO plans to speed up things and we can expect  them to close their year which ends in April-2010 with atleast 5 launches

How does this compare with US, Arian, Chinese, Russian and Japanese capabilities.

Post by: hornbill2007 on 11/09/2009 12:07 pm
MKII rating is the same as MKI that is 2,500kg. The only diff is the indigenous cryogenic engine for the terminal stage. Still, it is a major leap for India because the it means mastering the technologies for developing much heavier launch vehicles. Another advantage expected is that this indigenous engine would have better thrust than the Russian engines used for GSLV launches till now. ISRO always faced the problem of the satellites being delivered to lower than the optimum geosynchornous transfer orbit necessitating more complex manoeuvres consuming precious satellite fuel. This resulted it reduced life of satellites on the geosynchronous orbit.

As per the above list, Alsat-2A & Alsat-2B are co-passengers of Megha-Tropiques.

Megha will go into a special orbit of 20 deg inclination...Do Alsats fit this  ?
How many Alsats are there ? Both 2A and 2B in same launch ?(In one artcle on The Hindu, There's mention of this satellite as being the next big foreign sat launch...and scheduled for April)


GSLV D3 to fly in Jan. Some MRR(Mission Readiness Review) meetings going on...will put the date of launch here once public...expect it to be Mid-Jan. Guys the Russians are around in SDSC-SHAR...Looks like they are/may be helping out...!!!!!

As the Risat-1 & Megha-Tropics are PSLV dedicated launches (single payload), Alsat shouldn't be along with either of these 2.
I guess, coming are (in the order): Carto-2B, Resourcesat-2 etc. In that case, next is carto-2B with Alsat-2A & few small sats; this must be after April as GSLV D3 in postponed for 1 month. I think press release has the mention of Alsat-2A only. Alsat-2B may be in talks.

What I have seen is there's a sense of reluctance to launch GSLV, the motor was ready a year ago...isro is still skeptical because it is new tech..
atleast for them.

I believe ISRO has had a tough time building the cryogenic engine. i heard at least once that a full duration firing of the engine failed last year. that may be why isro is still cautious. much at stake in the case of cryogenic engine. therefore it is right to err on the side of prudence.

ISRO started building the engine from scratch.May be they are getting chills...Add on to that any failure will lead to a lot of negative publicity...(especially the guys in the electronic media will play on this for long just like they did for GSLVF02)..this engine's /GSLV MKII 's success is crucial as this will pave way for GSLV MKIII and MKIV which will be the main stay of ISRO for years to come and they use C25 cryo engines.(MKII uses C12.5)

Your list is perfect...No need to be sorry...Even Gunter's space page put Alsat-2A, Alsat-2B and Megha in one launch...But didn't find any evidence to suggest this anywhere else...so I was just trying to get some from anyone here on this forum.

If ISRO personnel are not still confident in the newly developed cryo engine, they can postpone it for some more time till they get "go-live" signal. As of now they can continue testing it. Nothing goes wrong if we postpone for 1-1.5 year. But if it fails it has a lot of negative impact on coming projects Chandrayaan-2, Human flight, Mars-1, M3 & M-4 etc and even slows down all smoothly going on PSLV launches... It might further impact PSLV commercial launches also. Already we have got enough -ve publicity for GLSV-F02 & Chandrayaan-1 failures.

We have been waiting for almost 16 years for indigenous cryo engine. We can wait some more time to hear the good news! ISRO can definitely make it, but takes some time. No one had earlier thought that ISRO would do Chandrayaan-1 perfectly in its 1st go; ISRO had operated it for 10 months successfully and creating many histories making it as one of the most successful MOON missions...

The launch of GSLV D3 is scheduled on Jan-20 as of NOW*

*(There's a debate going on regarding the cryogenic engine. In case of any issues, the launch may be postponed by months and PSLV launches preponed...I am not privy to the discussion but looks like it is regarding  the material used in building cryo stage...on whether it can withstand the heat and vibration)

Please do note that in case GSLV gets stranded, It will occupy SLP making ISRO use only FLP unless ISRO decides to move the vehicle out.

Post by: space_person on 12/23/2009 09:33 am
There are problems with both the GSLV booster and the GSAT-4 spacecraft. The cryogenic engines are not developing enough thrust and there are problems with the electronics of 2 payloads. They are opening the spacecraft up so the final vibration will not happen until the end of Jan which puts the launch in late Feb, at the earliest. They may also have to remove one payload to get the weight down.

This is means that Cryo is not up to the mark. Moreover reduction of pay load means more weight cant be put up which is not a good sign at all. First of all we should concentrate on perfect working of Cryo even if we have to compromise on marginal weight.

One can argue that lack of transparency is driven by negative media reaction. Indian media is prone to hyperbole, so even acknowledging a problem could lead to a lot of negative publicity. So maybe ISRO doesnt have a choice here.

GSLV D3 and its satellite are in Sriharikota. The news reports in my previous post confirm the delay and its cause. ISRO has put this out.
Title: Re: Indian launch schedule
Post by: isro-watch on 01/05/2010 02:25 am
Please note that GSLV D3 has a C15 third stage unlike GSLV MkI which used Russian C12.5

This accounts for increase in payload capacity from 2 to 2.5 tonnes.


Also note there's no SRE-2 in Cartosat-2B mission.

They are so panicky because of the booster issue that they are starting to throw passengers out to have a wider mass margin. TAUVEX is a candidate for removal.

As per GUNTER's space page the weight is 2150 kg...GSLV MKI has itself lifted this weight...there must be some improvement in capacity with the new C15 engine.

If TAUVEX is removed...that will indeed be very bad....first because this instrument has waited so long to be launched...and secondly this will impact our future deals with Israel...especially the upcoming tecsar-2 and OPSAT launches.

I think ISRO should not try so many changes in one launch. First the vehicle itself is new...the satellite uses ion trusters...add to that

Hope all goes well

A image of Studsat and a link on some upcoming nano satellites.

http://www.teamstudsat.com/

India has seen a flurry of nano/small satellite launch announcements.I have talked with some of the students involved on orkut. Looks like ISRO is actively involved. Here are some of the them.
STUDSAT - A group of 7 engineering colleges in Hyderabad and Bangalore.
JUGNU - IIT Kaunpur
PRATHAM - IIT Mumbai
VITSAT - VIT University
SRMSAT - SRM University

Of these the first 3 are in advance stage of development. STUDSAT as we all know by now will fly in MARCH. Jugnu may fly in the next PSLV.
(You can see some of them in the link above)

GSLV D3 and its satellite are in Sriharikota. The news reports in my previous post confirm the delay and its cause. ISRO has put this out.

But my understanding is that the satellite was ready and could have been launched. It was heading for final vibration when the booster issues were discovered. They then decided to fix a couple of hardware issues.

They are so panicky because of the booster issue that they are starting to throw passengers out to have a wider mass margin. TAUVEX is a candidate for removal.

Multiple payloads may be thrown off. I would not be surprised if Gagan is the only one left because of the financial implications of removing it.

OK, found some info. Mass 3050 kg launch, apogee 46 km (so didn't reach space) and length 10.3m. No diameter given. Photos appear consistent with the 0.56m dia of the RH-560. Looks like they stacked two RH-560 first stages together, making something that is pretty much a clone of the old French 'Eridan' sounding rocket.

There are problems with both the GSLV booster and the GSAT-4 spacecraft. The cryogenic engines are not developing enough thrust and there are problems with the electronics of 2 payloads. They are opening the spacecraft up so the final vibration will not happen until the end of Jan which puts the launch in late Feb, at the earliest. They may also have to remove one payload to get the weight down.
TAUVEX removed: http://www.tribuneindia.com/2010/20100308/main7.htm (http://www.tribuneindia.com/2010/20100308/main7.htm)

I think they lost the rocket/payload

It happened very soon after the indigenously-powered upper stage ignited

During the webcast, and after the launch failure, it was said that the next GSLV would be launch within a year from now. I supose that they were refering to the MkII.

The next GSLV flight would take place in September this year but it would use a Russian cryogenic engine. It would put into the orbit a communication satellite named GSAT-5B. Another GSLV flight, also powered by a Russian cryogenic engine, would put GSAT-6 into the orbit.

Depends. India at present has 2 Russian cryogenic upper-stages which will be used on the next two GSLV flights (ie GSAT-5,6). After that there will a qualification flight of Mk-2(Indigenous cryo) which will launch the replacement for the GSAT-4. Depending on it's success ISRO will decide whether to order new Russian stages or go-ahead with the indigenous ones.

The stacking up of the three stages of ISRO's Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV-F06) in the second launch pad at Sriharikota had begun on July 14 as planned, Mr. Veeraraghavan said. The GSLV-F06 would put in orbit a communication satellite called GSAT-5B.

The integration of the four stages of the PSLV-C16 will begin in the first launch pad in August. The rocket will put in orbit three satellites — Resourcesat – 2, Youthsat and a satellite from Singapore. Resourcesat-2 and Youthsat belong to India. Youthsat will carry a Russian payload as well.

The launch of GSLV-F06, according to the VSSC Director, would take place in October. The PSLV-C16 would lift off two weeks later.

India to launch sea level monitoring satellite “Saral” by 2011

By Frontier India | August 11th, 2010 |

India is expected to launch SARAL (Satellite with ARGOS and ALTIKA) satellite for monitoring the sea water level. SARAL satellite will carry an Altimeter (ALTIKA) for studying the sea surface heights; and ARGOS payload, which is a satellite based data collection platform.
SARAL satellite is a joint project of Indian Space Research Organisation and the French National Space Agency. The ALTIKA and ARGOS payloads are built and supplied by the French National Space Agency. The satellite building and launching are the responsibilities of Indian Space Research Organisation.
The satellite bus is under fabrication at Indian Space Research Organisation. Integration and testing of the payloads are ongoing at the French National Space Agency. The satellite is likely to be launched in 2011.

IRNSS

ISRO is also developing its own navigation system called Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System (IRNSS). The IRNSS will have a constellation of 7 satellites and complementary ground infrastructure. The IRNSS system is planned to be made operational by end of 2014. Government has approved the IRNSS project at a total cost of Rs. 1420.00 crores in May 2006 for both space and ground infrastructure.

The "official" launch date for ASTROSAT is mid-2012 and it is uncertain whether that will be met. There are problems in more than one of the instruments and the availability of a launcher is doubtful, considering how far behind ISRO is.

The Indian Space Research Organization ( ISRO) has planned two more launches a PSLV and a GSLV mission in December.

The first would be PSLV-C16 mission which would place Resourcesat satellite and two other satellites -- a 90 kg satellite developed by Singapore University and a 90 kg Youthsat, developed by students of Russian and Indian universities -- in orbit.

This would be followed by a GSLV-F06 mission, using the Russian cryogenic stage, to place Indian Communication Satellite GSAT-5B in the GST orbit.

India plans two rocket launches in December
Published: Wednesday, Nov 3, 2010, 15:24 IST
Place: Bangalore | Agency: PTI

India is planning two rocket launches next month that would carry on board home-made communication and remote sensing satellites, along with a Russian payload and a Singaporean micro spacecraft.

The first to go up would be a geosynchronous satellite launch vehicle (GSLV), carrying GSAT-5 Prime, a communication satellite, to augment communication services vis-à-vis TV, broadcasting and telecommunications.

The GSAT-5P is equipped with 24 normal C-band transponders and 12 extended C-band transponders.
Sources in the Bangalore-headquartered Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) said that GSAT-5P, with a mission life of 12 years, is slated to be launched in the second week of December.

As of now, the space agency is looking at December 10 as the likely launch date.

Top ISRO officials are meeting on November 10 in the spaceport of Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh, from where the twin launches would take place, to review the upcoming GSLV mission and firm up the date.

Preparations are also in full swing for the launch of the PSLV-C16 which would carry on board India's advanced remote sensing satellite Resourcesat-2 and auxiliary spacecraft of Youthsat and X-sat, expected towards the end of December.

My first reading was as yours and then I had a second thought... ???
but your reading seems correct according to this last release:
http://www.domain-b.com/organisation/isro/20101126_twin_launches.html
since the launch window mentionned is December 10-20, I'd say Dec 20 is the most probable date at this time!

As there appears to be some confusion on the designation of the payload:

Apparently these are two different Satellites: GSat 5 (Insat 4D) and GSat-5P

The payload here on thes December 2010 GSLV launch is GSat 5P, which has no Insat designation.

ISRO report 2010 (section Communication) http://www.isro.org/rep2010/citizens.htm has two entries:

Quote from: http://www.isro.org/rep2010/communication3.htm
GSAT-5 PRIME

GSAT-5P is being planned as replacement for INSAT-3E and will carry 24 Normal C Band and 12 Extended C Band transponders with India Coverage. The spacecraft will be positioned at 55 deg East longitude with a mission life of 12 years.

The spacecraft weighs 2330 kg and payload power requirement is 1700W. Spacecraft configuration and equipment panel layouts are finalised. Payload subsystems and other subsystem packages are under advanced stage of realisation.


Quote from: http://www.isro.org/rep2010/communication4.htm
GSAT-5/INSAT-4D

Configured as an exclusive C-band communication satellite, GSAT-5/INSAT-4D will carry 12 normal C-band transponders and six extended C-band transponders with wider coverage in uplink and downlink over Asia, Africa and Eastern Europe as well as zonal coverage with a minimum of 35 dBW EIRP.

The spacecraft has a mission life of 12 years. The spacecraft weighs 2330 kg and has a power generation capability of 2000W. The layouts for all equipment panels are finalised. Fabrication of bus system elements have been initiated.

Thanks Gunter for pointing to these differences between GSAT-5P and Insat-4D.

BTW, it would help if ISRO could update their description for GSAT-5P which appears at
http://www.isro.org/scripts/futureprogramme.aspx (http://www.isro.org/scripts/futureprogramme.aspx)
and which could create confusion..

Quote from: http://www.isro.org/scripts/futureprogramme.aspx as of November 28, 2010
GSAT-5P
Configured as an exclusive C-band communication satellite,  GSAT-5P/INSAT-4D will carry 12 normal C-band transponders and 6 extended  C-band transponders with wider coverage in uplink and downlink over  Asia, Africa and Eastern Europe as well as zonal coverage with a minimum  of 35 dBW EIRP.

The satellite is heavier too...GSLV MK-I series was supposed to have 2T capacity and MK-II series with 2.5T
The cryo engine has changed from C12.5 to C15...and the rocket is taller too 49 m to 51 m

May be they end up buying C25 stage for GSLV MK-III too..It will be better than waiting another 10years for one...  :(

Dr. Radhakrishnan said a series of communication  satellites would be launched in the coming years to boost the country's  communication and telecasting services. The GSAT-8, having 24  transponders, would be launched by the European Space Agency's Ariane  rocket from French-Guyana in March-April 2011. These  would be followed by the launch of GSAT-10 and GSAT-9. Next to follow  would be GSAT-12, a smaller communication satellite that would be put in  orbit by the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle from Sriharikota.The ISRO Chairman, however, said: “we will now review the  GSLV programme” since a GSLV of the same class was needed to put  Chandrayaan-2 into orbit in 2013-14. While India would build the  Chandrayaan-2 and the rover that would drive about on the Moon's soil,  Russia would provide the lander, which would land the rover on the lunar  soil. “The Russians are happy with the [Chandrayaan-2] programme so  far,” he said.The ISRO would launch a Polar  Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV-C16) from Sriharikota in the first week  of February 2011.

I believe in its first flight, it hopes to fly as a second or third stage on top of a S-139 first stage. This is in its TSTO configuration.

I think four is the current limit of ISRO launches. They have been working to getting it up to 6-8 range. This is why I think the 2012 section of the calendar is slightly exagerated.

The space agency has also decided to turn to the tried and tested Arianespace for the twin launches scheduled for March and December this year.

"We are going to launch GSAT-8 and GSAT-10 this year. These two satellites will reduce the scarcity of transponders and help us reduce the backlog,
So, that looks like a March launch for GSAT-8 and a December launch for GSAT-10.

He said another communication satellite GSAT-12 will also be launched using a PSLV rocket sometime in the middle of the year.
This would likely mean April-May time line.

Alex, director of the ISRO Satellite Centre, said: 'In March/April, we will launch communication satellites GSAT-8 from French Guyana using Ariane rocket. Later this year or early 2012, GSAT-10 will be launched again by Ariane.'

ISRO will also be launching GSAT-12 satellite using its own rocket - polar satellite launch vehicle (PSLV) in March/April, he said.

IAF Satellite
The first dedicated IAF satellite is scheduled for launch in FY 2011-12, after the Navy satellite scheduled for launch in FY 2010-11.

The satellite was initially scheduled to be launched in July 2009, according to a PTI report on November 18, 2008. In early January 2009, the IAF Chief said the IAF satellite will be launched in 2010.

PSLV-C16 vehicle is already assembled at SHAR. Resourcesat-2 and
Youthsat are getting ready for shipment to SHAR

I think he did not mention XSat here for whatever reasons.

PSLV-C17 assembly would commence soon for a GTO mission to launch GSAT-12, a communication satellite. This would be followed by a series of 4 PSLVs  and flight testing of our Indian Cryogenics Stage
after due tests on ground. Second static testing of S-200 is on the anv

I think he means 4 PSLV launches followed by flight testing of the Indian Cryogenic Stage and not using PSLV for the same.

The Orbcomm SEC report mentionned by Spacenews says this:

The Company plans to launch multiple satellites commencing with the first AIS-only satellite under our recently announced OHB/Luxspace  agreement scheduled for launch in the second quarter of 2011 and then followed by  two of the 18 more powerful AIS-enabled Next Generation satellites. This plan includes the launch of up to four (two AIS-only and two OG2) satellites in 2011, on three separate launch vehicles.
So, AFAIU, only one AIS-only satellite is planned for launch aboard PSLV in June.

hi,

This is the note from Chairman: http://coalgeology.com/indian-space-agency-postpones-remote-sensing-satellites-launch/14378/ from an IANS story (you have to log in to IANS website to read the story!).

The reasoning seems odd:
Quote
ISRO officials told IANS the space agency’s chairman K. Radhakrishnan wanted to be sure about the parameters of the rocket’s subsystems as he was of the view that ISRO cannot afford another failure and that too involving the PSLV rocket.


Radhakrishnan is a worried man also because they're now involved in a could-be scam involving the S-band spectrum. It's been a hard time as a Chairman for him.

After 16 successful launches of its workhorse rocket Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) in the last 17 years, the Indian space agency is now testing a key component to re-qualify its on-flight performance parameters to avoid any unpleasant surprises. The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is testing the gas motor which is fitted in the second stage/engine powered by liquid fuel for high temperature tolerance levels.

There have been some reports that a second Israeli TecSAR is going to be launched by India this year, presumably on the PSLV again.   Has there been any recent Indian comment about this or are the reports a fiction?

Maybe after all of the trouble pre-launch for the first TecSAR, everyone is keeping quiet about the second launch.

Post by: pradeep on 03/07/2011 11:45 am
It was believed that RISAT-2 was an off-the-shelf TecSAR built by Israel for India. At a recent public lecture I attended, the Director of Space Applications Center, Navalgund told the audience that RISAT-1, an indigenously built SAR payload is flying in "last quarter of 2011/first quarter of 2012".

Perhaps there is speculation that this (RISAT-1) is also an Israeli TecSAR. I have not heard anything said of an Israeli TecSAR-2 launch otherwise.

No, RISAT-1 is indian bulit and completely different from the TECSAR system.

TECSAR-2 is an purely israeli satellite.

"Jugnu" nanosatellite to be launched at end of June on PSLV
source (http://www.brahmand.com/news/Jugnu-nano-satellite/6737/3/13.html)

The article also says that Jugnu would be placed in a polar orbit with a  period corresponding to 15 rev/day. It may mean that it will be a co-passenger  with Risat-1 which would then be launched at end of June.

Piggybacked on PSLV: BRITE-Austria (aka TUGSAT-1), UniBRITE(aka CanX-3A) (seemingly all on polar orbits)

BRITE-Austria and UniBRITE are also scheduled to launch on PSLV-C20, into the same 800 km, dawn-dusk, sun synchronous orbit as the primary satellites. [Source.] (http://www.utias-sfl.net/SpecialProjects/LaunchIndex.html)

ISRO and Antrix may refer to these spacecraft as NLS-8.1 and NLS-8.2. The NLS designation stands for the "Nanosatellite Launch Service" launch agreement that the Space Flight Laboratory at the University of Toronto (UTIAS/SFL) arranged with Antrix. There may be multiple spacecraft covered by the agreement (for example, there were 6 satellites in NLS4 on PSLV-C9 in 2008 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nanosatellite_Launch_System#NLS_4)). The NLS designation also refers to the satellite and its XPOD separation system. The XPODs are provided by UTIAS/SFL and they remains attached to the upper stage (PS4). Hence, NLS-8.1 is BRITE-Austria and its XPOD, NLS-8.2 is UniBRITE and its XPOD, etc. Also, Antrix often quotes the combined mass of the satellite and separation system, since that is what they are launching to orbit.

UniBRITE and BRiTE-Austria are part of the BRITE Constellation, short for "BRIght-star Target Explorer Constellation", a group of 6 kg, 20x20x20 cm nanosatellites who purpose is to photometrically measure low-level oscillations and temperature variations in the sky's 286 stars brighter than visual magnitude 3.5.  The BRITE constellation is sometimes referred to as "CanX-3" or "the CanX-3 constellation" for historical reasons. Currently, six satellites are planned in the group: two are funded by the Austrian government -- UniBRITE (CanX-3a), and BRITE-Austria (http://www.tugsat.at/) (CanX-3b or TUGSAT-1); two by the Canadian government -- CanX-3c and 3d; and two by the Polish government (http://www.brite-pl.com/pliki/main_en.html).  The Austrian and Polish BRITE satellites are built as collaborations between SFL and the respective organizations.

I hope that clears up some of the multiple names used for these satellites. All that to say that the first two BRITE satellites (BRITE-Austria and UniBRITE) will be launching on PSLV-C20.

Hi MA,
According to the 2010-2011 ISRO annual report GSAT-14 is planned to be launched by GSLV with indigenous cryogenic upper stage.
As the satellite appears in ISRO last mission profile for a launch in FY 2011/2012, we can assume it has been approved and is under construction!  :)
GSAT-14 seems to be the candidate for GSLV-MKII (i.e. with Indian-made cryogenic upper stage) return to flight after the April 2010 failure; this launch is now tentatively announced for the second part of 2012.

Hi MA,
According to the 2010-2011 ISRO annual report GSAT-14 is planned to be launched by GSLV with indigenous cryogenic upper stage.
As the satellite appears in ISRO last mission profile for a launch in FY 2011/2012, we can assume it has been approved and is under construction!  :)
GSAT-14 seems to be the candidate for GSLV-MKII (i.e. with Indian-made cryogenic upper stage) return to flight after the April 2010 failure; this launch is now tentatively announced for the second part of 2012.


               

               

From the Mission Profile posted above, there is only GSLV D4 flying in the FY 2011-12. This, ISRO, Chairman said will fly with a Russian cryo to check out the vehicle design. So, the GSAT-14 would likely fly on a GSLV Mk-I.

Taking into account:
A) http://www.deccanchronicle.com/node/23871 (http://www.deccanchronicle.com/node/23871) dated April 21:
 “Isro is re-working on the [GSLV MKI] design specifications and planning for a test flight by the end of the first half of 2012,” said Mr P. S. Veeraraghavan, director, Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre,

B) (http://www.rian.ru/science/20110420/366470673.html (http://www.rian.ru/science/20110420/366470673.html)  dated April 20)
 "According to the head of ISRO Radhakrishnan, after careful check of 12КRB it is necessary to make a test launch which is planned for 2011-2012 (will end on March, 31st, 2012). After that, India will not have any Russian cryogenic engine (altogether seven units have been bought ), and the following GSLV will go to space in 2012 with an Indian engine  which is now under completion."

C) from the ISRO 2010-11 annual report (uploaded on March 29), GSAT-14 is to be launched on GSLV-MKII

It could be concluded that GSAT-14 will be onboard that GSLV-MKII planned for 2012.

Stan,

I think this - http://www.hindustantimes.com/PSLV-C16-successfully-launched-satellites-injected-into-orbit/Article1-687398.aspx - will clarify that a bit:
Quote
A high pressure booster pump in an indigenous cryogenic engine that had not performed upto expectations in an earlier GSLV mission has been redesigned and successfully tested. “We are even planning to integrate into the remaining Russian cryo engine to boost its performance,” he said.

I think it was this booster that failed on GSLV D3 was redesigned and when tested performed well - so ISRO might have introduced this design change into the Russian cryo as well.


(http://www.rian.ru/science/20110420/366470673.html (http://www.rian.ru/science/20110420/366470673.html)  dated April 20)

input~2,

I think a careful reading (see marking in blue) would suggest that the Russian cryo would be tested first and this would be followed with a test flight of the Indian cryo. Perhaps, this means that there will be a second GSLV flight in 2012.

The Mission Profile on the ISRO Annual Report is not an absolute timeline. It is a rough timeline "as planned" not "as executed". ISRO is still testing the Indian cryo sub-systems. It would need at least 3-4 tests at a system level before it will be flown. This would probably push it to the end of 2012 in the best case scenario.

Let's see how this works out.

Adding to Pradeep's discussion:


There may be two sort of experimental launches now
1. GSLV D4....testing the modified Indian cryogenic engine.

2. GSLV F5(?)...testing the changes made to the GSLV design with the sole Russian engine left

One of my souces in ISRO indicated that ISRO plans to launch GSLV MK-III with only the first and second stages into a LEO....that's a test launch with S200 boosters and the L110 engine

can any one confirm this...?
Is this feasible ?

Hmm. I was suggesting that GSLV D4 would be the one with a Russian cryo and the GSLV D5 will be the one with modified Indian cryo engine. D4 will test vehicle design with a proven Russian engine whilst D5 will test the Indian cryo was how I understood it.

Perhaps we should move this discussion out of the Indian Launch Schedule discussion?

Post by: johnxx9 on 04/29/2011 06:53 pm
As far I know, ISRO is seriously considering flying the GSLV with the Russian cryogenic stage. The shroud that stage needs to be strengthened and tested. A very expensive and long procedure for a stage which will be launched only once. The last launch of the Mk-I was supposed to be GSAT-7 which was supposed to take place this year if all had gone well.

IMHO, there is a reasonable chance that the last Russian cryo stage may go unused. D4 will indeed be a Mk-II development flight.

- Building of GSLV-Mk III will be over by 2012 end and launch would be in 2013.
The first stage, solid propellant booster  S-200 has been tested and qualified; second and liquid propellant stage L-110 has also been tested. Work is yet to be completed in third stage, the cryogenic stage.

PSLV are workhorses with respectable payloads of about 1600 kg. In 2011, PSLVs will launch GSAT-12, the Megha-Tropiques satellite, GSAT-6 and Radar Imaging Satellite (RISAT-1), all from Sriharikota. Another GSAT would also be launched from Kourou, French Guiana, by an Ariane rocket from Arianespace in June 2011.

ISRO has decided to review the entire GSLV program. As a result, all major launches are being rescheduled:
- Chandrayaan-2 launch is postponed to 2014
- GSLV MKII return to flight will carry GSAT-6 in 2012
- If that goes well GSAT-7 will be launched with GSLV-MKII
- ISRO is now uncertain about using the last  of the seven cryogenic engines it had sourced from Russia

Compare that with what was said 2 weeks ago:
"On that flight we don't want to put a high-technology satellite,"[the Chairman of ISRO] informed that the launch vehicle will carry a two-tonne  communication satellite called GSAT 6.

The UVIT CDR is happening now with a projected launch date for ASTROSAT in April 2012. Aditya will take at least 3 years. No work has started yet and there are serious questions about the detectors.

He may be talking about the second quarter of the next fiscal year, which would then be summer 2012 ;D

    President Pratibha Patil visited the Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SDSC SHAR) at Sriharikota here on Monday and dedicated the new Mission Control Centre to the nation.

    She also witnessed a simulation of the launch of the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) at the Mission Control Centre and various exhibits of the advances in space science and technology. The new centre has been developed with state-of-the-art facilities to meet the requirements for the launch of the Geo-Synchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle Mark-III and future missions of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO).

    Later, she visited the First Launch Pad, where the integration of the soon-to-be-launched of PSLV-C19 was in progress.

    Let's see how FLP is going to handle heavy RISAT-1 payload along with piggy back satellites!

    Perhaps you may want to update the launch roster with the Venus mission and its tentative launch date of May 2015, which puts it ahead of Chandrayaan-2.

    I do not think we will have a GSLV MK III launch this year, if it happens I will be very happy.

    For GSLV MK II launch in the middle of the year, do we know if ISRO will be using Indian cryo engine?

    Why do you think FLP doesn't have the capability to handle PSLV with multi payloads ?

    FLP has been used for multi payloads missions before. For example PSLV C7 mission..

    Also..SLP doesn't hold any GSLV vehicle as of now but yes...mock drills for integration of MKIII vehicle are going on ..!

    Later, she visited the First Launch Pad, where the integration of the soon-to-be-launched of PSLV-C19 was in progress.
    I thought RISAT-1 on PSLV XL C19 needed the Second Launch Pad (SLP)
    (according to Antivista post (http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=27238.msg843558#msg843558))

    ISRO was forced to move RISAT-1 launch to FLP which doesn't support full assembly and integration services at.

    Let's see how FLP is going to handle heavy RISAT-1 payload along with piggy back satellites!

    Quote
    This is due to unavailability of 2nd launch pad, since GSLV flight test preparations are under progress.

    Some more bad news...

    RISAT-1 mission is not scheduled for March-2012. It may slip further to April or May. Some sources have told that the vehicle is waiting for the satellite to arrive from ISAC center at Bangalore.

    Also ISRO seems to be plagued with internal revolt by a section of scientists loyal to former chairman Mr. Madhavan Nair.

    Per the above link, ISRO will test the GSLV-MKII cryogenic engine on Saturday at Mahendragiri and they are confident of a Sep-2012 launch.

    I am not confident about this. Going by ISRO's track record, I think this is not feasible.

    http://ibnlive.in.com/generalnewsfeed/news/isro-2-last/997577.html
    (Link about PSLVs launch)

    PSLV-C21    SPOT-6   August-2012
    GSLV-D*     GSAT-14  September-2012
    PSLV-C20    SARAL+   October-2012

    Atleast one launch will fall prey in this schedule. Per my sources, ISRO is going on a fast pace with SPOT-6 launch...The launch campaign is to start very soon...But they still will not have launch pads vacant for this schedule...unless they use the second VAB (Vehicle Assembly Building) in the second launch pad (second launch pad has 2 VABs)...Expect them to close the year with 3 PSLV launches like last year

    There are 3 tests: cryo test in vacuum facility to simulate high altitude operation, vehicle endurance test for 1000sec and third that I am not aware of.

    ISRO this year commissioned its vacuum facility. The indigenous cryo engine used in the previous flight was not vacuum tested

    The space agency plans to have the cryogenic engine and stage ready by October for the launch of GSLV D5 in December. An experimental flight of GSLV Mark III (without the active cryogenic stage), for launching communication satellites of 4 tonne (compared to GSLV’s 2.2 tonne capacity), is scheduled for the second quarter of 2013.

    source: http://www.business-standard.com/india/news/man-onmission/478193/ (http://www.business-standard.com/india/news/man-onmission/478193/)

    ISRO is working on third launch pad in SHAR and considering a new launch site that will improve the payload capacity of current launch vehicles by 500 kgs. Currently, a launch blocks the launch pad for 60 days. With the third launch pad, ISRO is hoping to reduce the gap to 30 days. We need more frequent PSLV launches that will boost commercial activities.

    Rather contradictory those two reports, fairly obvious that there is still a lot of indecision on the matter, makes me think that it will be the later date rather than the earlier one that they eventually go with.

    C21 is planned in 2nd week of Sept now. Refer link  (http://eenadu.net/Homeinner.aspx?item=break23) (As per the local news paper Eenadu in Telugu)

    As per this, 2 new "rockets" are scheduled in September itself ??? One is C21 - confirmed but other is not mentioned; it must be GSAT-10 but not the C20 (I guess so; because although both C21 & C20 are getting ready on both launch pads in parallel, ISRO needs some 2-4 weeks time for C20 launch, after C21!)

    And M2 is planned is November!

    Here might be the sequence :
    1. C21 - Sept 2nd week
    2. GSAT-10 - Sept (from Arian)
    3. C20 - Oct
    4. GSAT 14 (M2) - Nov

    Launch: A launch of the VENµS spacecraft is planned for mid-2014 on a PSLV vehicle of ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization). The launch provider is the Antrix Corporation of Bangalore, India.
    https://directory.eoportal.org/web/eoportal/satellite-missions/v-w-x-y-z/venus (https://directory.eoportal.org/web/eoportal/satellite-missions/v-w-x-y-z/venus)
    PSLV launcher was selected by the Israel Space Agency (ISA). ISA also lists Russian Start Launcher as the backup LV for this high priority mission in the event of a major delay preventing launch by 2014. Mission was switched to ISRO from Arianespace due to delay in Vega Programme.

    From an abstract of a conference to be held in the U.S. next year, the ISRO is currently investigating expanding the IRNSS constellation from seven satellites to eleven. If this is going to be implemented, we will see more IRNSS launches in the next decade.

    The abstract can be found here: http://ion.org/meetings/abstract.cfm?meetingID=39&pid=57&t=A&s=5

    " The Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System (IRNSS), under development at ISRO, is an eleven-satellites constellation, with three satellites in geostationary orbits at 340E, 830E and 131.50 E longitude, four satellites at longitudes 550E and 111.50E (two at each with some phase difference) in geosynchronous orbits with inclination 290 to the equatorial plane, and the remaining four satellites at 48.50, 690, 97.50 and 121.50 E longitudes with 420 inclination."

    Certainly not on C20, C22, C23 or C25. Capabilty for a dual launch may only be on C24, but it is not known, if SRE-2 will indeed share this launch.

    There is only one commercial launch here (C33). As per the news till now, ISRO has 2 foreign contracts: SPOT-7 (in 2013-14) and EnMap (in 2016).

    Then, what about the 2nd one? Not even sure that C33 is for either of these 2 payloads!  ???

    I believe, further "pure" commercial contracts, if any, take the number further i.e, from C37 onwards! :)

    It appears ISRO is planning to pre-pone and have a launch of PSLV C22 IRNSS-1 mission before the GSLV flight...!  Will provide links as and when available.

    Also, there is talk of more frequent PSLV launches from this year

    does anyone know what launch pad PSLV-C20 will be launched from? Also if the PSLV C-22 launch comes before GSLV does that mean GSLV has been pushed back from it's early may launch date?

    Also can anyone tell me why it takes 3 years turn around time to launch a GSLV rocket?? Last GSLV launch was in december 2010. I know cyro tech is complex and the GSLV has a couple of technical issues that have to be resolved but 3 years to fix these problems?? ISRO really needs to pick up it's pace or mars mission might also be delayed as that also uses the same launch pad the GSLV uses.

    If i recall correctly there were supposed to be 3 tests of the indigenous cryogenic engine before the GSLV was launched. Are those still on or are they cancelled because after the first test was completed in may 2012 there has been no news about cryogenic engine progress.

    Partly due to GSLV Mk. II's multiple stage failures and the implementation of recommended corrective actions from those failures. Stage requalification testing, major engine/engine systems modifications which require new rounds of engine testing to recertify the modified engines for flight et cetera. those are just a few things that they have to complete successfully before they can fly again. Costly failures drive away government/citizen support and industry/customers due to low launcher reliability.

    (I will try to get more information ...)



    PSLV-C20 is using the first launch pad. Any further PSLV launch (most probably IRNSS-1 mission) may use the first launch pad only as GSLV and GSLV-MKIII missions may take in Second Launch Pad

    Cryogenic engine is still under testing...and yes there has been no information about the status of the tests...

    Hot test of the engine with modified parts has been done for 200 seconds. High altitude testing is to be done that will qualify the engine profile.

    Yes, PSLV has used DLA before ! All appears to be going smoothly as of now !

    As per S. Ramakrishnan, director, Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre (VSSC), this year we will have:

    GSLV in May

    PSLV would soon place SPOT 7 satellite in orbit after which there would be couple of launches with foreign satellites. (?)

    Spot 7 is to mirror Spot 6 PSLV Configuration and launch sequence so I believe that is so for question 2.

    Apparently this launch will not happen this year with PSLV (moreover Astrium has already announced (http://www.astrium.eads.net/en/press_centre/spot-6-joins-pleiades-1a-in-orbit.html) a launch in early 2014):
    since ISRO plans 9 more missions (ie S/C and domestic launchers) this year (source (http://www.thehindubusinessline.com/news/science/isro-plans-9-more-launches-this-year/article4452110.ece?))which can be accounted for as follows:

    3-PSLV C22
    4-IRNSS-1
    5-PSLV C25
    6-MangalYaan
    7-Insat-3D
    8-GSAT-7
    9-presumably 1 PSLV piggybacked S/C

    (SPOT 7/PSLV would make it 10 more missions and not 9)

    I guess, 9 is GSLV-M3's 1st experimental launch without Cryo stage & payload, named as M3-X1. (If so, not sure why ISRO considers this as a spl 'mission'; ideally it is similar to the S200 booster test, of course, integrated with L110! :)).

    Hey does anybody know when ISRO plans to launch the SRE-2 capsule? Its been delayed for over 2 years now.

    According to the "Outcome Budget Of DoS Government of India 2013-2014" published in March
    Quote
    Major Programmes planned for 2013-2014
    • Planned to complete Satellite integration level testing of sensors and launch of Astrosat, GSAT-14, GSAT-7, INSAT-3D, Cartosat-2C, IRNSS-1 & SRE-2
    so tentatively SRE-2 could be launched together with Cartosat-2C now planned for FY 2014-15

    Quote
    "The GSLV-Mark III experimental mission will be in April this year. [...]

     According to him, the next fiscal (April 2014-March 2015) would see ISRO launching three IRNSS (Indian Regional Navigational Satellite System) satellites taking the total to four and be ready for usage.

     He said ISRO will also launch French satellite SPOT-7 along with four small satellites using its other rocket Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV).

    Isro chairman K Radhakrishnan confirmed that Germany has approached India for the launch of an 800-kg satellite, and the UK for three satellites weighing 300kg each. "There will be at least two dedicated commercial launches this year using PSLV," said Radhakrishnan. Isro scientists said earnings from such launches could more than double once GSLV is accepted globally as a reliable launch vehicle.

    Antrix has signed new contracts. Here are the details (as mentioned by ISRO)

    Feb 06, 2014

    Antrix signs agreements for launching satellites from UK and Singapore on-board ISRO’s workhorse Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV)

    On 29th January 2014, Antrix Corporation Limited (Antrix), the commercial arm of Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), signed Launch Services Agreement with DMC International Imaging (DMCii), the wholly-owned subsidiary of Surrey Satellite Technology Limited (SSTL), United Kingdom (UK), for launch of three DMC-3 Earth Observation Satellites being built by SSTL, on-board ISRO’s Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV).

    On 5th February 2014, Antrix signed another Launch Services Agreement with ST Electronics (Satcom & Sensor Systems) Pte Ltd, Singapore, for launch of TeLEOS-1 Earth Observation Satellite, on-board PSLV.

    These launches are planned during end 2014 to end 2015.

    Team Indus, the only Indian entry into Google Lunar X Prize, last heard of drawing up launch contract with ISRO to buy PSLV launch for Lunar mission to accomplish soft-landing a robotic vehicle on the Moon, traveling 500 meters over the lunar surface and transmitting high-definition video to Earth.. This launch, if materializes, would happen sometime in 2015 therefore much before ISROs chandrayaan-2 mission.

    Any news on that front?

    - GSLV-MkIII in April
    - Spot-7 in May
    - 2 more PSLV later in 2014

    Dr. Radhakrishnan said the PSLV would put into orbit in June the French SPOT-7 satellite and four other satellites from abroad.
    Looks like SPOT-7 is slated for June launch. Also I had read somewhere that a minimum of two months gap is required for two consecutive PSLV launches from the same launchpad. And till today no satellite has been launched from India within three months of a previous launch.

    GSAT-15 is targeted to be launched in mid -2015 and GSAT-16 is scheduled to be launched in 2014-15.

    Quote
    GSAT-15 is approved by the Government on July 17, 2013. It will carry 24 Ku-band transponders and a GAGAN (GPS Aided Geo Augmented Navigation) payload. GSAT-15 spacecraft will provide replacement for the Ku-band capacity of INSAT-3A and INSAT-4B spacecrafts to augment and support the existing DTH and VSAT services in the country. The GAGAN payload of GSAT-I5 will meet the in-orbit redundancy requirement for Safety of Life (SOL) operations benefiting the civil aviation services in the country.

    Quote
    GSAT-16 is approved by the Government on July 17, 2013. It will carry 48 transponders in C-band, Ku-band and Upper Extended C-bands. GSAT-16 spacecraft will provide replacement for the INSAT-3E spacecraft and will also augment the C and Upper Extended C-band capacity.

    If that is the case then we should see weather its feasable to inject two satellites at a time using GSLV, provided the vehicle is capable of it.

    There are issues launching a GSLV from First Launch Pad. Normally GSLV is always launched from second launch pad

    1. Chairman requested to make the works faster as some activities are pending. There would be one more meeting to check the status. The launch date would be decided after that.
    2. There is a possibility of launching C26 (planned in October) before M3.

    I guess PSLV-C26 would use First launch pad, and GSLVM3 would use the Second launch pad. But with the given timelines, is it feasible to have either of these pads ready for PSLV-C27 by last week of December? Or maybe there is a high chance that C27 will be postponed to Jan/Feb of next year?

    The assembly venue in Bangalore, the ISRO Satellite Centre or ISAC, is ready with the spacecraft. “Advancing a satellite by five to six months is a difficult job, but we did it. We also got a slot from Arianespace (launch company) and as of now, we are talking of a launch (around) December 6,” he said. An earliest launch would otherwise have been April 2015.

    The work is progressing on another CE-7.5 engine, which will power the upper stage of the GSLV-D6, a ditto version of the GSLV-D5, expected to be flown in March-April 2015.

    GSAT-6 slated for March launch (http://www.thehindu.com/news/national/gsat6-slated-for-march-launch/article6545929.ece)

    Quote
    It will be followed by GSAT-15 in mid-2015; GSAT-18 [18] at the end of 2015; GSAT-17 in early 2016. (ISRO's satellite numbering order changes often.) All these satellites will be put in orbit on foreign launchers as the ISRO could not yet do it for 3000-class satellites, he said.

    Quote
    Among Earth observation satellites, Cartosat-2C will be the next to be flown in a year's time; it will have the highest ever resolution for an Indian satellite so far, of 62 cm. The best so far has been around 80 cm, but for select users. If this is achieved, it will be repeated for CArtosat-2D and 2E also.

    So this means that SRE-2 will be launched in a year along with Cartosat.

    ISRO to put 7 Singapore satellites in orbit

    Isro launching three satellites for the UK-based DMC International Imaging International(DMCII) that manages the disaster monitoring constellation of the International Charter for Space and Major Disasters.

    ISRO is planning to launch the GSLV with GSAT-6 payload between July and August 2015.

    The PSLV-C28 would carry the three satellites weighing about 500 kg each by mid-2015.

    In March, ISRO will have the first flight of this year: a Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) will put in orbit IRNSS 1-D, the fourth navigation satellite that is part of a constellation of seven satellites supposed to provide indigenous capability in this strategic area.
    Later this year, it will put the country's first astronomy satellite (Astrosat) in orbit, providing a broad spectrum of instruments for the astronomy community. In between, PSLV will also have a commercial launch, and the Geosynchronous Launch Vehicle (GSLV) Mark II go up one more time, putting GSAT-6 into orbit.

    TeLEOS-1 will not fly with AstroSat

    TeLEOS-1 will use a PSLV-CA version and will be joined by the VELOX-C1, Kent Ridge 1 microsatellites and the Galassia cubesat and one or more singaporian Cubesats.

    Launch is planned for December 2015.

    The people at BST (Berlin Space Technologies), who are building the Kent Ridge-1 satellite (co-passenger on the TeLEOS launch), told me, that the TeLEOS-1 launch is scheduled for December 2015.

    As the only other commercial payload in the ISRO schedule is shown for 2016, i will try to find out, if TeLEOS moved forward and AstroSat back.

    Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle continuation Programme Operational Flights PSLV-C36 to PSLV-C50

     
    The Union Cabinet, chaired by the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, has given its approval for Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) Continuation Programme of fifteen operational flights of Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle PSLV-C36 to PSLV-C50.

     The PSLV continuation Programme will enable the launch of satellites required for Earth Observation, Navigation and Space Sciences along with the possibility of clinching commercial launch service contracts.

     The total fund requirement is Rs. 3090 crore and includes the cost of fifteen PSLV vehicles, Programme Elements, Programme Management and Launch Campaign.

     The PSLV Continuation Programme will meet the demand for the launch of satellites at a frequency of four to five launches per year, with a greater focus on enhancing the level of participation by the Indian industry. All the fifteen operational flights would be completed during the period 2017-2020.

     Presently, PSLV operational flights, which were sanctioned in 2008, are being utilized to meet the satellite launch requirements.

     The operationalisation of PSLV has made the country self-reliant in the launching capability of satellites for earth observation, disaster management, navigation and space sciences. The PSLV Continuation programme will sustain this capability and self-reliance in the launching of similar satellites for national requirements. 

     Background:

     PSLV has emerged as a versatile launch vehicle to carry out Sun-Synchronous Polor Orbit (SSPO), Geo-synchronous Transfer Orbit (GTO) and low inclination Low Earth Orbit (LEO) missions. With the recent successful launch of PSLV-C26 on 16th October 2014, PSLV has completed three developmental and twenty-five operational flights and the last twenty-seven flights have been successively successful. PSLV has established itself as a workhorse vehicle for national satellites with a production capacity that would enable responding fast to commercial launch opportunities also.

    As per the present plan, RLVTD would be launched after the launch of PSLV-C20-8 scheduled for July 10.

    RLVTD would be launched from the first PSLV pad at Sriharikota in the one-month period between PSLV-C20-8 and next PSLV flight, he said.

    The last I checked, Yes !  The satellite too has reached SDSC and there was supposed to be a MRR(Mission Readiness Review) meeting in the end of July to decide on the launch date as per the comments made after PSLV C28 launch.

    It seems the launch is planned sometime in 20s of August. Waiting for any news articles to confirm the same.
