Isro’s SSLV-D2/EOS-07 mission successful; three satellites placed in orbits | India News

SRIHARIKOTA: During the second development flight, the Indian Space Research Organization’s Small Satellite Launch Vehicle (SSLV) has successfully placed three satellites, including an earth observation satellite EOS-07in the intended orbit on Friday.
The success of the SSLV-D2/EOS-07 mission comes after India’s smallest commercial rocket – 34 meters high and 2 meters in diameter – failed to put the satellite into the desired orbit on its first flight. on August 7, last year.
SSLV-D2 took off from the first launch pad at Satish Dhawan Space Center in Sriharikota at 9:18 am. About 13 minutes after takeoff, the three-stage rocket successfully placed EOS-07 into a circular orbit. About 1.6 minutes later, it was placed Janus-1 and the AzaadiSAT-2 satellites in their orbits.
Based on isroThe mission’s goal was to demonstrate the in-flight performance of the SSLV vehicle system and put three satellites in a 450 km circular orbit.
The EOS-07, weighing 156.3kg, has a one-year mission. The goal of the EOS-07 mission is to design and develop microsatellite bus-compatible payload tools and new technologies needed for future operational satellites, and to design and develop developed a microsatellite capable of carrying new technology in fast turnaround times.
Janus-1 is a technology demonstration smart satellite, based on the US company’s Antaris software platform. The AzaadiSAT-2 is intended to demonstrate the capabilities of amateur radio communications and LoRa, measuring radiation levels in space and other things. About 750 schoolgirls were instructed to develop the payloads. Space Kidz India’s student group integrated these payloads.
SSLV is capable of launching micro or nano satellites (mass from 10 to 500kg) into a flat 500km orbit. The SSLV is a three-stage vehicle with all solid propulsion stages and a liquid propulsion-based shear module, as the final stage. SSLV’s design drivers are low cost, low turnaround time, flexibility in accommodating multiple satellites, on-demand launch feasibility, and minimal launch infrastructure requirements.
