India launches 30 satellites in Earth's orbit

All you need to know about India's 100th satellite

Early on January 12, over four decades after the Aryabhata was put in space, ISRO marked the successful launch of its 100th Indian-made satellite from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh.

Cartosat-2 Series is an advanced remote sensing satellite similar in configuration to earlier six spacecraft in the series and meant to augment data services to the users.

That rocket was carrying India's first private sector-built navigation satellite IRNSS-1H, which could not be ultimately put into orbit after the rocket carrying it developed a technical glitch.

# The entire launch of satellites is expected to happen over a period of 2 hours and 21 seconds, ISRO said.

"The Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV-C40) deployed India's 710-kg Cartosat and 10-kg nano satellite and 100-kg micro-sat along with 28 foreign satellites into the Earth's orbit after a ideal lift-off from the launch pad", said outgoing Indian Space Research Organisation Chairman A.S. Kiran Kumar at the mission control facility, about 80 km northeast of Chennai. The total weight of all the 31 satellites carried onboard PSLV-C40 is about 1323 kg.

Liftoff of the four-stage PSLV, boosted by six strap-on solid-fueled rocket motors, is scheduled for 0358 GMT Friday (10:58 p.m. EST Thursday) from the Satish Dhawan Space Center on India's eastern coastline, about 50 miles (80 kilometers) north of the port city of Chennai.

A microsatellite of India would be orbited after about 90 minutes following the re-ignition of the fourth stage, Kumar said. This took slightly more time for PSLV-C40 launch.

Its primary objective is to provide high resolution scene specific spot imageries that would help in urban and rural applications, coastal land use and regulation, road network monitoring, water distribution and geographical information system applications among others. "We are coming to the launch pad after four months".
