On Monday, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has launched EMISAT which is an electronic intelligence and comprises 28 nano satellites of global customers from Sriharikota. With the launch, India aims to give birth to a new surveillance satellite with a special mission of the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV C-45).
The chief of DRDO (Defence Research and Development Organisation), Dr. G Satheesh told the reporters, “I am very happy with achieving a double bullseye in space, first with Mission Shakti a direct hit to kill of a satellite at 300 kilometer altitude and now, with the help of ISRO, India’s EMISAT successfully placed in orbit.”
Six days before India had test-fired the Mission Shakti operation which was an anti-satellite missile.
ISRO said that the countdown for the launch on the PSLV began on Sunday at 6.27 am. For Sriharikota, it was the 71st launch vehicle mission. According to the sources, the low-Earth orbit satellite weights 436 kg. It will provide locations for enemy radar sites deep in their territory.
The chairman of ISRO, K Sivan said, “The immediate mission what we are targeting is the PSLV C-45. This mission is special in the sense, for the first time PSLV will have a three-orbit mission in a single flight.”
On March 27, after the launch of missile anti-satellite (ASAT), it left behind some 300 pieces of debris through which the PSLV has been launched. The launch also carries 28 small satellites of the US, Switzerland, Lithuania, and Spain. These include 20 Flock-4A satellites and 4 Lemur satellites of the same variety that gave the controversial images that questioned the efficacy of the Balakot air strikes by the IAF.
