ISRO’s PSLV- C53 to launch 3 Singapore satellites on June 30
Bengaluru, June 22( PTI) Indian Space Research Organisation( ISRO) on Wednesday said it’ll be launching – the alternate devoted marketable charge of its marketable arm NewSpace India Limited( NSIL) – ‘ PSLV- C53 ’ support three satellites from Singapore on June 30.
The launch vehicle carrying DS- EO satellite along with two otherco-passenger satellites is listed to lift off at 1800 hours IST from the Second Launch Pad at Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota.
The preamble of 25 hours leading to the launch begins at 1700 hours IST on June 29.
The charge, which is designed to circumvent DS- EO satellite along with two otherco-passenger satellites from ST Electronics, Singapore, proposes to demonstrate the application of the spent upper stage of the launch vehicle as a stabilized platform for scientific loads posterior to the separation of the satellites.
This will be the 55th charge of PSLV and 15th charge using the PSLV- Core Alone variant, and is the 16th PSLV launch from the alternate launch pad.
A four stage,44.4 m altitudinous PSLV- C53 has a lift- off mass of228.433 t, and would fit DS- EO satellite into an route withsemi-major axis of6948.137 20 km, at an altitude of 570 km measured from the ambit, with a low inclination of 1000.20.
The three satellites are- DS- EO, a 365 kg and NeuSAR, a 155 kg satellite both belonging to Singapore and erected by Starec Initiative, Republic of Korea, and the third satellite is a2.8 kg Scoob- 1 of Nanyang Technological University( NTU), Singapore.
DS- EO carries an Electro- Optic,multi-spectral cargo with0.5 m resolution imaging capability, while NeuSAR is Singapore’s first small marketable satellite carrying a SAR cargo, which is able of furnishing images in day and night and under all rainfall conditions.
SCOOB- I satellite is the first satellite in the Student Satellite Series( S3- I), a hands- on pupil training program from the Satellite Research Centre( SaRC) at Singapore’s NTU School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering.
The PSLV Orbital Experimental Module( Lyric) exertion performs in- route scientific trials using the spent PS4 stage as an orbital platform, ISRO said, it’s the first time that the PS4 stage would circumvent the earth as a stabilized platform.
station stabilization is achieved using a devoted NGC system, it said, Lyric derives the power from the solar panels mounted around the PS4 tank and a Li Ion battery.
It navigates using four sun detectors, a magnetometer, gyros and NavIC, and carries devoted control thrusters using Helium gas storehouse. It’s enabled with the telecommand point.
Lyric carries six loads including two from Indian Space Start- ups M/ s Digantara and M/ s Dhruva Aerospace, enabled though IN- SPACe and NSIL. PTI KSU ROH ROH
