ISRO PSLV launch: 7 Singaporean satellites placed in intended orbits

The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) PSLV rocket placed all seven Singaporean satellites into Near Equatorial Orbit (NEO) after its successful launch from the Satish Dhawan Space Center at Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh. About 23 minutes after launch, the rocket separated from the satellites and placed them in their intended orbits after covering a distance of 535 km, ISRO said.

The DS-SAR satellite was developed in collaboration with Singapore’s Defense and Technology Agency and ST Engineering. It will be launched into a Near Equatorial Orbit (NEO) with an inclination of 5 degrees at an altitude of 535 km.

Once deployed and operational, the DS-SAR satellite will serve to support the satellite imagery requirements of various agencies within the Government of Singapore, according to ISRO.

PSLV-C56 also carries six companion customer satellites – VELOX-AM, a 23 kg technology demonstration microsatellite; ARCADE Atmospheric Coupling and Dynamics Explorer (ARCADE), an experimental satellite; SCOOB-II, a 3U nanosatellite flying with a technology demonstrator payload; NuLIoN by NuSpace, an advanced 3U nanosatellite enabling seamless IoT connectivity in urban and remote locations; Galassia-2, a 3U nanosatellite that will orbit in low Earth orbit; and ORB-12 STRIDER, the satellite is developed in the framework of international cooperation. It is PSLV’s 58th flight and PSLV’s 17th flight in core-only configuration.
