Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) on Monday set up an Electronic Intelligence Satellite (EMISAT) for its Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) in its class.
Along with Emyst, 28 foreign satellites from other countries were also launched in the classroom.
India successfully launched 297 foreign satellites with satellites launched on Monday.
Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) rocket has placed 46 national satellites into the class, in which 10 satellites have been created by the students of the universities of the country. With this, India seeks to give birth to a new surveillance satellite with a special mission of the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV C-45) that has many firsts.
After a successful launch, ISRO Chairman Sivan said, “Today, PSLV successfully transmitted EMISAT satellites made by ISRO and 28 commercial satellite into the desired class, these satellites are at a height of 504 kilometres.”
For the first time, common people were allowed to watch this launch, he said that in the next campaign, about 5,000 people will be allowed to watch the launch.
Foreign satellites comprise US 24, two Lithuania and one satellite each from Spain and Switzerland. The PSLV rocket weighing about 239 kg flew at 9.27 a.m.
ISRO Chairman Sivan had previously told IANS, “This is a special mission for us, we will use a rocket with four strap-on motors, after which we will try to move the rocket to the three different distances.”
ISRO selects rockets according to the weight of satellites.
Just 16 minutes after the flight, the rocket’s fourth stage engine closed, the thrill grew. After 47 seconds, the EMISAT got out of the rocket at a height of 753 km.
A senior official told IANS, on the condition of keeping the name confidential, “Demand for satellites has increased from strategic areas, and there are plans to build about six or seven satellites.”
India will launch two or more defence satellites from its new Small Satellite Launch Vehicle (SSLV) rocket sometime in July or August.
