World News

TIRUPATI: On Sunday, the dependable Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV-C56) rocket will launch seven Singapore satellites as part of the Indian Space Research Organization’s (ISRO) next big mission. The 350 kg DS-SAR satellite that will be deployed into a 535 km high near-earth orbit (NEO) is the main objective of this mission.

Without boosters attached, the rocket will be launched in core-alone mode. A deal with New Space India Limited (NSIL) includes the launch.

The Singapore government’s representative, DSTA, and ST Engineering worked together to create the DS-SAR satellite. Once operational, it will satisfy the imagery needs of several Singaporean government entities. The capabilities of the satellite will be used by ST Engineering to offer its commercial clients multi-modal and highly responsive images and geospatial services.

The DS-SAR satellite is equipped with a synthetic aperture radar (SAR) payload created by Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), allowing it to provide all-weather day-and-night coverage with a 1-meter imaging resolution. Six co-passenger client satellites, all coming from Singapore, will also be carried by the PSLV.

The co-passenger payloads include the 23 kg technology demonstration microsatellite VELOX-AM, the experimental satellite ARCADE, the 3U nanosatellite SCOOB-II carrying a technology demonstrator payload, the advanced 3U nanosatellite NuLIoN by NuSpace enabling seamless IoT connectivity in both urban and remote locations, the 3U nanosatellite Galassia-2 operating in low earth orbit, and the ORB-12 STRIDER
