SRIHARIKOTA: isronewest and smallest commercial rocket, SSLVstep into the small world satellite launch services market on Friday, with the successful launch of SSLV-D2.
After failing to put the satellites into orbit during its first flight on August 7, 2022, SSLV in its second development flight, placed three satellites including EOS-07ONE Earth observation satelliteAnd Janus-1 from the American firm Antaris, on the desired trajectory.
“We have a new launch vehicle,” Isro President S Somanath said after the launch. On Friday morning, SSLV, which is 34m tall and weighs 120 tons, took off from its first launch pad at Satish Dhawan Space Center, Sriharikota.

The Isro president said the car uses a new, cost-effective navigation and navigation system. Regarding the first development flight, Somanath said, “We almost missed while trying to put the satellite into orbit due to lack of velocity. We analyzed the issues and took corrective actions to ensure the car was a success this time around.”
