Today at 9.30 AM, the Indian Space Research Organisation has marked its name in the history by setting a fresh world record after hurling 104 satellites into orbit on a solo mission. The launch will get PSLV-C37 pushing out an incredible 104 satellites into the orbit. In 104 satellites, 101 satellites will be from global customers. Of the 101 global co-passenger nano-satellites, 96 are from United States, and one from Israel, the Netherlands, Kazakhstan, Switzerland and United Arab Emirates. The mass of all the satellites at launch will full 1,378 kg.

India will become the first nation to hand history if it thrives in launching the 104 satellites in a solitary rocket. The countdown for the takeoff of PSLV-C37/Cartosat2 Series satellite mission initiated at 5:28 AM shortly after the Mission Readiness Review committee and Launch Authorisation Board provided its authorization for lift off, Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) declared.

What is important about the launch is the number of satellites passed by a rocket. Associated with fruitful launch by the Russian Space Agency launching 37 satellites in a single shot, India will become the first nation to script history if it succeeds in launching 104 satellites in a single rocket.

It will also be ISRO’s second fruitful attempt after launching 23 satellites in one go in the month of June 2015. PSLV will initially launch the 714 kg CARTOSAT-2 Series satellite for earth remark and then add 103 co-passenger satellites, together weighing around 664 kg at lift-off into polar Sun Synchronous Orbit, around 520 km from Earth. ISRO researchers have used the XL Variant — the utmost influential rocket — previously used in the striving Chandrayaan and through the Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM).

In 101 co-passenger satellites, a whole of 96 belong to USA, five are from International clients to ISRO, which comprise Kazakhstan, Israel, Netherlands, Switzerland, United Arab Emirates, correspondingly. Two Indian nano satellites, weighing a whole of about 1,378 kg, will also ride allied on the PSLV rocket. The nano-satellites fitting to global customers are being launched as part of the preparation by Antrix Corporation Ltd (ANTRIX) the commercial support of the ISRO.

Cartosat-2 Series, which is the main satellite, will be analogous to the previous four satellites in Cartosat-2 Series. After coming into process, it will deliver remote sensing services. Images referred by it will be valuable for coastal land usage and directive, road network monitoring, supply of water and formation of land use maps, amid others. Cartosat-2 Series has a task life of 5 years.

ISRO-5

The two Indian Nano-satellites INS-1A and INS-1B were developed as co-passenger satellites to escort larger satellites on PSLV. The main objective of INS (ISRO Nano-Satellite) is to deliver a chance for ISRO technology demo payloads, provide a normal bus for launch on demand services.

In its 39th aircraft, the PSLV liftoffs the 714-kg Cartosat-2 satellite for earth remark and 103 co-passenger satellites, completely weighing about 664kg, at lift-off. The satellites have been positively placed in an orbit 505km beyond the Earth.

ISRO has set that all the 104 satellites were successfully separated from the launch vehicle and are being positioned into their corresponding orbits.
