Conflicting reports in the media about launch...

Here is a Press Trust of India report...gives launch date of April 20th

FIRST CLEAR ARTICLE...300Kg SATELLITE....550Km ORBIT...ISRAELI BUILT...RISAT-2

http://www.ptinews.com/pti%5Cptisite.nsf/0/7C160B60B396AA3865257592003AA867?OpenDocument


Another report in "The new Indian express" newspaper...quotes a ban on fishing upto April 15th around sriharikota island...and a launch "very soon"

Could that be Oceansat?

Oceansat hasn't yet been integrated with the launch vehicle.

http://www.indiaedunews.net/Tamil_Nadu/ISRO_to_launch_Anna_University's_ANUSAT_on_April_20_7918/

Seems like the cubesats will fly at the late April according the news but some of them are still at their facilities.

APR 16
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.

Hello,
according to http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/Cities/UoP-ISRO-to-launch-satellite-for-study-on-rice/articleshow/4407693.cms ISRO will launch it's SRE-II mission between October and December 2009. It will perform something like the chinese Shijian 8 aka Seeds-Sat mission.

SRE will also also act as a test-platform for some technologies required for manned mission.

to isro-watch, anik, and all,

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.

OFFICIAL CONFIRMATION ON ISRO WEBSITE....


http://isro.org/pslv-c12/C12RISATBrochure-1.pdf

(look at the RISAT-2 image...they are giving us a drawing...not a photo graph!!)...too bad
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

On the Oceansat front...Isro Chairman was referring to "June" launch of Oceansat-2+ as the worst case Scenario.

When is the next GSLV MK II Launch? When is the next GSLV MK III launch? When is next GSLV launch with Indian cryogenic engine? Why is it so hard to find all this info at ISRO website?

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.




THIS CUT-OUT FROM "THE HINDU NEWSPAPER" ARTICLE PUTS OUT ISRO'S PLANS FOR 2009 VERY CLEARLY.


PSLV C12             RISAT-2+ANUSAT             APRIL 20

PSLV C14             OCEANSAT-2+                MAY END/JUNE

PSLV C?              RESOURCESAT-2+sats from ISIS+ NLS-6(utias)     AUGUST? *[1]

GSLV D3              GSAT-4+TAUVEX              SEPTEMBER?

These PSLV launches are nothing to celebrate about.  Its all been there done that. Yes, they might carry interesting payload's which I look forward to.

The next milestone is GSLV MK III and Ingeniousness Cryo Engines.

To Space Ash...
I do accept that....even the media here doesn't give much credence to it...But if u look, most of the launches have something or the other new about them...And I am happy that we have left our most hated neighbour(Pakistan)far behind in many aspects including Space...looks like ISRO is draging its feet and wants to make sure that every thing goes well with GSLV MKII(D3 flight)....But ISRO plans to use PSLVs regularly...evident from the fact that it has asked government funding for launches upto PSLV C24...which it got.
--------------------------------------------------------------
The information in my previous post is updated a little after some searches.
