Why ISRO's first launch of 2018 made Pakistan nervous

Chandrayaan-1

The Indian Space Research Organisation's (ISRO's) today gave what it called a "new year's gift to India": The launch of its 100th satellite on board on a Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) rocket. "The PSLV had a very successful run up to its 39th mission (PSLV-C39), which was a setback as the heat shield failed to separate", Annadurai had stated.

The next mission of Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV) Mark II was being assembled and is scheduled to be launched next month, Kumar added. On its 42nd mission, ISRO's trusted workhorse "PSLV-C40" carried the weather observation "Cartosat-2" series satellite, which was successfully put in earth's orbit. More than half of the micro and nano satellites were for the Unites States, and the remainder India, Canada, Finland, France, South Korea and the United Kingdom. "With a capability to carry up to 3 kg of payload and a total satellite mass of 11 kg, it offers enormous opportunities for future use", the ISRO said.

The spaceport Sriharikota High Altitude Range (SHAR) is located about 80 km northeast of Chennai off the Bay of Bengal coast.

"ISRO is starting 2018 with the successful launch. all customer satellites (besides Cartosat and nanosat) released and the microast after one hour".

Today's launch shows problems from last year's failure were addressed and fixed, ISRO said.

The satellites would be placed in their intended different orbits finally after manoeuvres from the space agency's Master Control Facility (MCF) at Hassan in Karnataka, about 180 km from Bengaluru.

Two more burns by the restartable fourth stage will steer the rocket into a lower 223-mile-high (359-kilometer) polar orbit for deployment of a mysterious Indian-owned secondary payload known only as MicroSat. Sivan was speaking in the context of ISRO's failed launch in August.
