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,

Abe Bonnema
ISIS - Innovative Solutions In Space BV

Welcome ISIlaunch....just yesterday I had gone through your website :)

I hope u will be providing quite good information about the upcoming launch...just like UTIAS provided for the launch for their cubesats...

My information suggests that a temporary launch date of MARCH 25th has been set for the launch of PSLV c12(?) oceansat-2+....can u confirm that...? when r the cubesats arriving here at sriharikota...? any info from the launch provider ANTRIX...?

this page suggests that u r on board quite a few PSLVs.... I wish u provide us with lot of information...

the info also states that the MARCH/APRIL launch has ~ 550-600km, 41° inclination....but oceansat-2 is for a polar orbit (~90 deg inclination)...??????

ISIlaunch... do u have slots on PSLVs scheduled on MARCh or APRIL....??????

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...

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 !!!

According to http://www.hindu.com/2009/01/28/stories/2009012859751300.htm

OceanSat will be launched in March or April.
Chandraayan-2 will be launched on a GSLV.

Cubesats listed below will be launched at April, 25th.

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

Which mission will this be? and should we revise the Indian launch log accordingly?

I supose that the RISAT-1 and ANUSAT will be launched toghether without any other major payload (?), so the April 25 mission will be with Oceansat-2?

ANUSAT and RISAT to fly together in March/April on PSLV

http://www.rediff.com/money/2009/feb/18students-satellite-to-take-flight-soon-anna-university.htm

So, when will the cubesats fly ?? Because both these will have 97 degree inclination.

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.
