    ISRO PSLV C48 Mission - 10 Satellites Successfully Placed In Orbit


    It was ISRO PSLV's 50th flight and 48th successful flight since its first successful launch on 15 October, 1994.

    All 9 customer satellites (from Israel, Italy, Japan and USA) and RISAT2BR1 satellite successfully placed in their designated orbit by PSLVC48.

    ISRO chairman K Sivan said, "I am extremely happy to declare that PSLV's 50th flight successfully injected RISAT-2BR1 in a 576 km orbit. Along with the 50th flight, this mission has another milestone" It is the 75th launch form Sriharikota."

    He said PSLV was a wonderful project led by "exemplary leaders" starting with Dr Srinivasan who had conceptualised and configured he vehicle. In 26 years, PSLV has had five variants. It initially had an 850kg capability which was later enhanced to 1.9 tonne.

    The versatile vehicle has so far carried 52.7 tonne payload in which 17 percent mass were customer satellites," Sivan added.

    Sivan said PSLV had visited almost all orbits in space. "It has launched satellites ino low earth orbit,polar orbit and GTO (geosynchronous transfer orbit) and has sent satellite to Moon and Mars. Now, we will send satellite to the Sun," he added.
