EnMAP to launch in 2022 on Falcon 9:

https://www.dlr.de/eoc/en/desktopdefault.aspx/tabid-5514/20470_read-47899/

Quote
EnMAP (Environmental Mapping and Analysis Program) will be the first German optical earth remote sensing mission in orbit. It will acquire high quality hyperspectral image data with 230 spectral channels in the solar-reflectance range on a frequent basis with high geometric resolution. The major objectives of the mission are to measure, derive, and analyze numerous diagnostic parameters which describe vital processes on the earth’s surface relating to agriculture, forestry, soil and geological environments, as well as coastal zones and inland waters. During operations the mission will provide information about the status of different ecosystems and their response to natural or man-made changes in the environment. The mission management is led by the Space Agency of the German Aerospace Center (DLR). The scientific aspects of the mission are covered by the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ). The OHB-System AG is responsible for the development, production, and launch of the satellite. The establishment and operation of the ground segment is performed by the DLR entities Earth Observation Center (EOC) and Space Operations and Astronaut Training (RB) . The ground segment is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi).

EnMAP in a nutshell:

Size of satellite: 3.1 m × 2.0 m × 1.7 m
Launch mass of satellite: 980 kg (including 55 kg hydrazine)
Launcher: Falcon 9 (SpaceX)
Launch site: East Coast of USA
Launch date: 2022
Operational lifetime: > 5 years

Repeat cycle: 27 days and 398 orbits (polar, sun-synchronous)
Local time descending node: 11:00 h ± 18 min.
Revisit: 4 days (±30° off-nadir tilt)
          27 days (±5° off-nadir tilt)
Spectral range: 420 nm - 2450 nm
Spectral sampling distance: 6.5 nm (420 nm - 1000 nm; VNIR)
                                         10 nm (900 nm - 2450 nm; SWIR)
Radiometric resolution: 14 bits
Geometric resolution: 30 m × 30 m (swath: 30 km)
                               (5000 km per day with 512 Gbit
                                on-board mass memory)
Communication: 4 Kbit/s (S-band uplink)
                       32 Kbit/s (S-band downlink)
                     320 Mbit/s (X-band downlink)

INSPIRESat-1 primed for launch, says Indian Institute of Space Science and Technology

Quote
INSPIRESat-1 CubeSat, developed under the International Satellite Program in Research and Education (INSPIRE), is ready for launch, the Indian Institute of Space Science and Technology (IIST) has said.

The small satellite that weighs less than 10 kg will be launched aboard an upcoming Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) mission of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO).

INSPIRESat-1 is a collaborative effort by the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP) at the University of Colorado Boulder in the U.S., the National Central University, Taiwan, and the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, apart from the IIST.

The satellite, which will be placed in a low earth orbit, is equipped with a Compact Ionosphere Probe for studying the earth's ionosphere. A constellation of earth and space-weather observation satellites is envisaged under the INSPIRE programme.

Rideshare on PSLV-C52 or C53, not sure which.

Talking about the purely scientific missions at a conference this week, director of human spaceflight centre, Dr Unnikrishnan Nair, said, "The solar mission Aditya L1 will be launched in the third quarter of next year (2022) and will provide more insights into the origin of the universe and many other unknowns."
...
"Xposat will allow us to study the polarisation of celestial events. It will be launched by an SSLV which is under development. The first development flight will be by the end of this year. Academicians are looking forward to the data generated from this mission," said Nair.
...
Before the pandemic, the space agency had planned for 20 launches in the financial year 2020-21, including the first unmanned flight under the Gaganyaan mission. The Gaganyaan mission is also likely to be undertaken by the end of 2022 or in early 2023.

Oceansat-3 launch delayed from October 2021 to January 2022; OrbAstro's Guardian-Alpha cubesat, originally manifested as a Vigoride payload, will now rideshare on this mission.

Smallsat specialist OrbAstro busy building downstream dreams

Quote
While the ORB-12 mission is the first of several planned announcements, it’s not expected to be OrbAstro’s first launch.

The company has a variety of 3U- and 6U-class nanosatellites scheduled for launch in 2022, starting with a 3U nanosat that OrbAstro had expected to launch this year to put its cubesat-derived ORB-3 platform and subsystems through their paces.

That first satellite is expected to launch in January as a secondary payload on an Indian Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle carrying the Indian Space Research Organisation’s Oceansat 3. Dove-Jay said OrbAstro made arrangements for the PSLV launch after plans fell through to launch with SpaceX this year as part of Momentus’ still-delayed Vigoride space tug mission.

Dove-Jay said OrbAstro has three SpaceX Falcon 9 rideshare missions lined up next year for its 6U-class nanosatellites, the ORB-6.

Cross-post:

NSIL is now looking to launch GSAT-20, GSAT-22, GSAT-23, and GSAT-32 in 2022:

Space PSU NSIL to launch 4 more demand-driven communication satellites [dated Oct. 5]

Quote
K Sivan, secretary, DoS, said: “...We are already in advanced talks for GSAT-22 which will be for another major DTH provider. Aside from this, customers have been identified for GSAT-20, 23 and 32 but we cannot reveal the names at this juncture as the talks are still at the initial stages.”

Stating that all of them are likely to be launched in the coming year, Sivans said that the satellite for the DTH provider may happen as early as the first quarter of 2022. The GSAT-24 is expected to be launched in February.

IAF will get another satellite, GSAT-7C, within a couple of years to boost its network-centric operations.

GSAT-7C procurement has finally been approved:

Govt approves proposal for GSAT-7C satellite for Air Force [dated Nov. 23]

Quote
The Defence Ministry on Tuesday approved the procurement of GSAT-7C satellite and ground hubs worth Rs 2,236 crore for the Indian Air Force for real-time connectivity of software defined radios.

The complete design, development and launching of satellite will be in India, and it will enhance the ability of Armed Forces to communicate beyond the line of sight, the ministry said.

The decision was taken during Defence Acquisition Council (DAC) meeting held under the chairmanship of Defence Minister Rajnath Singh.

No launch date given, but it will probably launch no earlier than 2023 or 2024.

Three launch campaigns were in progress as of late November.
RISAT-1A, now NET January 6
SSLV inaugural launch, Q1 2022
(Third?) Oceansat-3, TBD 2022

Belated cross-post; my bold:
Looks like flooding in Andhra Pradesh is the current issue perpetuating the launch delays:

After Covid, Andhra floods stall Isro’s sat launch missions this year [dated Nov. 22]

Quote
After the Covid pandemic cast a shadow over Isro’s mission launches for over a year, now it is the flood situation in Andhra Pradesh that is stalling satellite launches at the SHAR launch centre in Sriharikota, a barrier island located in Nellore district of the state.

Isro sends key satellites and rocket components from its centres in Kerala and Karnataka to Sriharikota by road for assembling and launch. As many arterial roads in Nellore have to be closed due to the floods, Isro is not able to finalise its launches.

Isro chairman K Sivan told TOI, "We have been working on three launches, including the small satellite launch vehicle (mini-PSLV) launch, before the year ends. But due to heavy rain and floods in Andhra, we have to reassess the situation... We can decide on the three launches only when the flood situation improves."
