With the support of the space agency’s Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV-C54), the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) successfully launched nine satellites into different orbits in space during one of its biggest missions. It also includes an Earth Observation Satellite (EOS-06). The satellite launched from the first launch pad (FLP) at the Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SDSC).
The nine satellites are Earth Observation Satellite (EOS-06) which is referred to as a third-generation satellite, ISRO Nano Satellite-2 for Bhutan (INS-2B), Anand, Astrocast (four satellites), and two Thybolt satellites. The Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) has launched 56 times, while the PSLV-XL has launched 24 times during this longest mission.
EOS-06 is set to collect information on ocean surface temperature, ocean color, and wind vectors which will be used in oceanography, climatology, and meteorology applications. Nine satellites, including one for Bhutan, were successfully launched by PSLV-C54, including the Earth observation satellite EOS-06 and eight nanosatellites.
