India to launch ten satellites on April 28
Come April 28 and Indian sky will be full of satellites as Indian Space Research Organisation has confirmed of launching 10 satellites on the same day.
In a press release ISRO has mentioned that it’s Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV-C9) is scheduled to lift off at 9.20 am on Monday from Satish Dhawan Space Centre at Sriharikota with its payload of 10 satellites including India's latest Remote Sensing Satellite (CARTOSAT-2A), Indian Mini Satellite (IMS-1) and 8 nano-satellites from overseas.
The remote sensing satellite CARTOSAT-2A weigh 690 kg laced with sophisticated panchromatic camera which is capable of taking black & white pictures in the visible region of the electromagnetic spectrum. It is swift and steerable along as well as across the direction of its movement to facilitate imaging of any area more frequently.
ISRO has also developed the Indian Mini Satellite-1(IMS-1), which weighs at 83 kg, integrated with new technologies and has miniature subsystems. It comes with two optical payloads including a Multispectral camera (Mx Payload) and a Hyperspectral camera (HySI Payload). The resolutions of the cameras are 57 and 506 metres respectively. The life span of IMI-1 will be two years.
While under commercial agreement with Antrix Corporation, the other eight nanosatellites with weight ranging from 3-16 kg built by universities and research institutions in Canada and Germany are slated to be launched on the same day.
This will be the thirteenth flight of PSLV and third flight with ‘core-alone’ configuration. The CARTOSAT-2A will inaugurate the journey followed by others with an interval of few seconds.
The mini satellite to be launched comes with the future prospects in space missions when miniature satellites will hold the key.
India has made its prominent place in the space and so far acting as a launching pad it has created its mark in world.
