Oceansat will be ready in two months according to this articleAccording 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?)
ISRO sure comes up with surprises! See this ---------------India to Launch 1st IRNSS Satellite by Decemberhttp://www.asmmag.com/news/india-to-launch-1st-irnss-satellite-by-december-and we all were only talking about 3 launches this year ...................Lets see!
The article says GAGAN is on G-SAT-4 is this true?article:http://www.oosa.unvienna.org/pdf/icg/2008/expert/2-3.pdf
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???The article says GAGAN is on G-SAT-4 is this true?article:http://www.oosa.unvienna.org/pdf/icg/2008/expert/2-3.pdf
