PS-4 will be active for 10 more orbits, and will provide a platform for advanced experiments. This mission has two experiments.

What are those two experiments?

Maybe EMISat and SPADEX? I'm not sure, either.

This mission will be demonstrating three restarts of PS-4 after all satellites are separated. Earlier, PS-4 has been restarted once to launch satellites into different orbits.

This is probably one of the two experiments.

We should get confirmation of the end of the nanosat sep sequence any time now.

PS-4 will be restarted three times - probably this is one of the experiments they were talking about.

Official confirmation that all satellites are deployed.

Congrats to ISRO and all the international partners on the complete success of PSLV-C38.

Solar panels have been deployed for Cartosat-2E. Signals are fairly good.

Although; that pitchover maneuver after launch was so abrupt it startled me!!

Yes. It looked quiet sharp, I am thinking, it might just be a different camera angle(?).

SCE-200 semi-cryo engine development has been accelerated.

GSLV Mk III efficiency is being improved by increasing thrust of L110 stage Vikas engines.
