1. SSLV-D2/EOS-07 Mission is successfully accomplished
The SSLV-D2, launched on February 10, 2023, from SDSC SHAR, Sriharikota, successfully placed EOS-07, Janus-1, and AzaadiSAT-2 into a 450 km circular orbit in a 15-minute flight. SSLV is a cost-effective launch vehicle designed for up to 500 kg payloads to Low Earth Orbit, offering on-demand launches with minimal infrastructure. EOS-07, a 156.3 kg satellite by ISRO, introduces mm-Wave Humidity Sounder and Spectrum Monitoring Payload. Janus-1 (10.2 kg) is from ANTARIS, USA, and AzaadiSAT-2 (8.7 kg) is a joint effort by 750 Indian girl students under Space Kidz India guidance. The SSLV, standing at 34 m with a 2 m diameter and 120 t lift-off mass, underscores its flexibility, low cost, and swift turnaround time.
- Demonstration of designed Payload capability of SSLV in LEO
- Injection of EOS-07 satellite and two passenger satellites Janus-1 & AzaadiSAT-2 into 450 km circular orbit.
2. LVM3 M3/ OneWeb India-2 Mission accomplished successfully
LVM3 M3/ OneWeb India-2 Mission is accomplished successfully. In its sixth consecutive successful flight of LVM3, the vehicle placed 36 satellites belonging to the OneWeb Group Company in their intended 450 km circular orbit with an inclination of 87.4 degrees. The vehicle took off with a total payload of 5,805 kg at 09:00:20 hours IST from the second launch pad at SDSC-SHAR, Sriharikota. It achieved satellite injection conditions in about 17 minutes and began injecting the satellites from the twentieth minute. The vehicle performed a sophisticated manoeuvre to orient in orthogonal directions and injected the satellites into precise orbits with defined time-gaps to avoid collision of the satellites.
