The article below talkes of JUGNU..A student satellite of INDIAN INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY Kanpur to be launched in DEC-2009 and the orbit is also same as CARTOSAT-2B so expect this satellite too onboard.

PSLV C15  DEC-2009/JAN-2010 635-700 km SSO
CARTOSAT-2B
+X-SAT
+JUGNU  *1
+ ISIS (?)
+ UTIAS (?)
+ SRE-2 (?)
+ StudSat (?) *2


*1 (source)

*2 (source)....Look in "Current Status"

A geostationary "Navy Communication Satellite" is announced for launch in 2010.

I am sorry, is SRE-2 and Cartosat both part of the same PSLV mission?
So far PSLV mission have been carrying one main payload and a whole bunch of piggy pack payloads, as I understand it, SRE and Cartosat are both main payloads.

Someone please clarify.

The assembly of the 2nd stage liquid engine is under progress as of Oct 27.

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

Hi,

How much weight can GSLV MK II carry?
I believe MK III can carry 4 tones.
How does this compare with US, Arian, Chinese, Russian and Japanese capabilities.

Thx

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.

According Mission profile 2009-13 posted on Reply #407 on Page 28, ISRO's launch schedule for 2009-10 is:
PSLV C12 (Risat-2 + Anusat)             -   COMPLETED
PSLV C14 (Oceansat-2)                     -   COMPLETED
GSLV D3 (GSat-4)                             -   ONGOING
PSLV C15 (Carto-2B)                         -   PENDING
GSLV F 05 (GSat-5 + Youthsat)          -    ???

I think ISRO will be able to finish GSLV D3 & C15 by next Quarter (March '10)...

I am reposting this question, if someone has an answer.

How dose GSLV III lift capabilities compare with that of Russian, Chinese, American, Japanese and European launchers.

Thx

Concerning GSLV MkIII:
"GSLV Mk III is conceived and designed to make ISRO fully self reliant in launching heavier communication satellites of INSAT-4 class, which weighs 4500 to 5000 kilograms."
source dated Nov 14
For other launch vehicles capabilities, you could check out for example Gunter's space page at http://space.skyrocket.de/launcher.htm

"Aside from the fully funded and soon-to-be-completed Ofeq-8, Israel has cooperative plans with India to build and launch a second synthetic aperture radar (SAR) satellite, dubbed TecSAR-2, in late 2011."
