ISRO SSLV D2 Launch: 3 Satellites Introduced To The Orbit

ISRO SSLV D2 Launch: 3 Satellites Introduced To The Orbit

With the ISRO SSLV D2 launch on Friday, 10th of February 2023 from the spaceport in Sriharikota. The Indian Space Research Organization has tasted success after the failure of the Maiden Mission. This is the first mission by the organization that introduced three satellites into orbit at 9:18 Am. On the 7th of August 2022, its predecessor launched at the same time from the Dhawan Space Centre. However, that was a massive failure as it failed to deliver owing to the orbit’s anomaly as well as flight path deviation. Thus, this time, ‘corrective measures’ have been taken.

The three satellites were precisely placed in their intended orbits by SSLV after the ISRO SSLV D2 launch in its second trip, according to an obviously relieved S Somanath, Chairman of the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO). He announced from the Mission Control Centre (MCC) shortly after the successful ISRO SSLV D2 launch, which brought everyone to their feet –

"Congratulations to the space community of India...we have a new launch vehicle, the small satellite SSLV. In its second attempt, SSLV D2 has placed the satellites in the intended orbit precisely. Congrats to all three satellite teams."

He further added that all the issues related to the Maiden Mission have been identified and thus corrective action has been taken and implemented in good time in the ISRO SSLV D2 launch

Mission Director S Vinod stated that the ISRO team made a quick “comeback” with the ISRO SSLV D2 launch following the August 7, 2022 failure. He has also mentioned that ISRO has offered a “New Launch vehicle” for the launch vehicle community. 

Earlier, at 9.18 a.m., the 34-meter-tall SSLV soared majestically into clear skies, carrying the EOS-07, as well as the Janus-1 and AzaadiSAT-2 satellites. After a 15-minute flight, the rocket delivered the satellites to their intended 450-kilometre circular orbit.

Being designed, developed and released by ISRO, the EOS-07 satellite weighs 156.3 kg. The new experiments included Spectrum Monitoring Payload and mm-Wave Humidity Sounder. Another satellite is the Janus-1 which weighs 10.2 kg. It is built by Antaris, US, which is a technology demonstrator of smart satellite missions, mentioned ISRO. The third one is the Azaadi SAT-2 satellite which weighs around 8.2 kg. The amazing part of this satellite is that it is the joint effort of approximately 750 girl students across India, whom Space Kidz India, Chennai guided. The space agency mentioned that it strives to demonstrate measure radiation, and amateur radio communication capabilities, among others. 

ISRO states,

“SSLV is capable of launching mini, micro or nano satellites in the 10-500 kg segment into the 500km planar orbit. It caters to the launch of satellites to Low Earth Orbits on a launch-on-demand basis. It provides low-cost access to Space, offers low turn-around time and flexibility in accommodating multiple satellites, and demands minimal launch infrastructure. It is configured with three solid propulsion stages and a velocity terminal module.”
