    ISRO to Launch Remote Sensing Satellite on Wednesday
    BY PTI ON 06/12/2016


    Chennai: Capping a year of successful launches, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is all set to launch PSLV-C36 carrying the remote sensing satellite RESOURCESAT-2A from the spaceport of Sriharikota on December 7, the space agency has said.

    The 44.4 metre tall PSLV C36 is expected to place the 1,235 kg RESOURCESAT-2A into an 827 km polar sun synchronous orbit in about 18 minutes after lift off.

    The Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle-C36, in its 38th flight, will blast off at 10:24 am from the first launch pad at the Satish Dhawan Space Centre, Sriharikota, about 125 km from Chennai, ISRO said on its website.

    The mission life of the satellite is five years. RESOURCESAT-2A is a remote sensing satellite developed by ISRO and succeeds RESOURCESAT-1 and RESOURCESAT-2 launched in 2003 and 2011.

    It is intended to continue the remote sensing data services to global users and would carry similar payloads as carried by its predecessors RESOURCESAT-1 and RESOURCESAT-2.

    RESOURCESAT-2A will carry a high resolution linear imaging self scanner camera, medium resolution LISS-3 camera and an advanced wide field sensor camera that operates in various bands.

    It will also carry two solid state recorders with a capacity of 200 GB to store the images taken by the cameras, which can be shared with ground stations.

    A trusted workhorse of the space agency, PSLV has launched satellites in various orbits including sun synchronous orbit, low earth orbits, geosynchronous transfer orbit and sub-GTO, registering 36 successful launches so far.

    Between 1994 and 2016, PSLV has successfully launched 121 satellites of which 79 are from overseas and the rest Indian, ISRO said.

    On September 8, ISRO launched advanced weather satellite INSAT-3DR onboard GSLV-F05, tasting success on the maiden operational flight of its heavy-duty rocket fitted with the indigenous cryogenic upper stage.

    On September 26, in its longest ever mission spread over two hours, PSLV successfully launched eight satellites, including the country’s SCATSAT-1 and five satellites from other nations, in two different orbits to achieve another milestone.

    GSAT-18, India’s communication satellite, was launched on October 6 by a heavy-duty rocket of Arianespace from the spaceport of Kourou in French Guiana.

    PSLV-C36 / RESOURCESAT-2A
    PSLV-C36

    PSLV-C36 is the thirty eighth flight of ISRO's Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV). PSLV-C36 will place the 1235 kg RESOURCESAT-2A into an 817 km polar Sun Synchronous Orbit (SSO). PSLV-C36 will be launched from the First Launch Pad (FLP) at Satish Dhawan Space Centre SHAR, Sriharikota. In this flight, the 'XL' version of PSLV with six solid strap-on motors is used.

    PSLV is the ISRO's versatile launch vehicle for launching multiple satellites in polar SSOs, Low Earth Orbits (LEO) as well as Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit (GTO) and sub GTO. With 36 successful launches, PSLV has emerged as the workhorse launch vehicle of ISRO and is offered for launching satellites for international customers. During 1994-2016 period, PSLV has launched a total of 121 satellites, of which 79 satellites are from abroad and 42 are Indian satellites.

    PSLV-C36 / RESOURCESAT-2A is scheduled to be launched on December 07, 2016 at 10:25 hrs (IST) from SDSC SHAR, Sriharikota.
