OREANDA-NEWS India's PSLV (Polar Sattellite Launch Vehicle) was launched into orbit. It is carrying three Singaporean satellites intended for different purposes, according to a broadcast from the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO).

The launch was carried out at 18:02 local time (15:32 Moscow time) from the launch pad of the Satish Dhawan Space Centre, located on the island of Sriharikota in the southeast of the country.

In particular, an electro-optical satellite DS-EO weighing 365 kg will go into orbit. It is capable of making multispectral color images for monitoring agricultural land and eliminating the consequences of natural disasters.

The rocket will also launch the 155 kg NeuSAR satellite, which will be Singapore's first commercial satellite equipped with Synthesis Aperture Radar technology. This technology makes it possible to carry out remote sensing of the Earth in high resolution, regardless of the height of the device, weather conditions and illumination of the object being filmed.

In addition, the 2.8 kg Scoob-1 nanosatellite will be launched. This is the first device in a series of satellites designed to train students of the Engineering College of Nanyang Technological University.

The organization emphasized that the fourth stage of the rocket will remain in orbit and will be used as an orbital platform for scientific research for the first time . There are six experiments in total. The platform's orbit correction and orientation in space will be carried out by its own navigation system, and electricity will be generated both by solar panels installed on its fuel tanks and a lithium-ion battery.
