Isro sets 31 satellites into orbit

On his return here after the successful launch, VSSC director and Isro chairman-designate K Sivan said, "All stages were performed well, PSLV-C40 launch was successful". After a flight lasting 16 minutes 37 seconds, the satellites achieved the polar Sun Synchronous Orbit of 503 km inclined at an angle of 97.55 degree to the equator.

Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre (VSSC) Director K Sivan, who has been named the successor to Kumar, noted that many worldwide customers approached the ISRO for the launch immediately after the PSLV-C39 failure and it showed the confidence that they have in the agency's workhorse launch vehicle.

Modi´s government has been promoting a domestic space programme as a demonstration of low-priced technology and last February launched 104 satellites in a single mission, a lot of them for foreign customers. All satellites have been released. "So far Cartosat performance is satisfactory", he said at the mission control room.

A jubilant ISRO Chairman A S Kiran Kumar announced that the Cartosat 2 Series satellite, the seventh in the series, a nano satellite and 28 commercial payloads were successfully injected into the orbit one by one by the PSLV C-40, in the space of about 17.33 minutes since lift-off.

Cartosat-2, weighing 710 kilograms, is one of the series of the same name and aims to provide high-resolution images of the Earth for cartographic applications, monitoring of the road network, use of coastal land and the regulation and management of public services. The Indian satellites weighed 710kg including 100kg microsatellite and a 10kg nanosatellite. The foreign satellites came from Canada, Finland, France, Korean Republic, UK and the U.S., which were launched by ISRO under commercial agreements.

India has carried out dozens of satellite launches since 1999, carrying more than 200 satellites for countries around the globe, according to data from the state-run Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO).

ISRO scientists have said that the images, which the satellites collect, will enable Indian security agency to keep a track of military activities in neighboring Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, China, and Pakistan. The heat shield had not separated because of technical failures of related onboard mechanisms.
