The launch automobile was carrying EOS-07, Janus-1 & AzaadiSAT-2 satellites and aimed to inject them right into a 450 km round orbit.
This was the second developmental flight of its Small Satellite Launch Vehicle (SSLV), SSLV-D2 and the launch befell on February 10, 2023 at 09:18 AM IST.
SSLV caters to the launch of as much as 500 kg satellites to Low Earth Orbits on ‘launch-on-demand’ foundation. “It provides low-cost access to Space, offers low turn-around time and flexibility in accommodating multiple satellites, and demands minimal launch infrastructure,” as per an announcement by ISRO.
The SSLV-D2 mission had the goal to take a quarter-hour flight to inject EOS-07, Janus-1 and AzaadiSAT-2 satellites into 450 km round decrease orbit. “It is configured with three solid propulsion stages and a velocity terminal module. It is a 34 m tall, 2m diameter vehicle having a lift-off mass of 120 t,” stated ISRO. The EOS-07 satellite tv for pc weighs 156.3 kg and is made by ISRO.
