ISRO SSLV-D1 Launching: ISRO is all set for its first SSLV launch. SSLV-D1 will be launched tomorrow morning at 9.18 am. The countdown will start six and a half hours before. ISRO, which has already proved its mettle in the increasing competition and commercial launches in the space sector, will launch its smallest launch vehicle on Sunday, August 7. ISRO EOS-02 mission will be launched through SSLV.
This satellite is equipped with new technology which will work in the fields like forestry, agriculture, geology and hydrology, but more importantly, this launch vehicle is smaller than PSLV, as well as it has been designed in such a way that it will grow in the future. Considering the small satellite market and launches, it will prove to be effective. In which our own and foreign satellites will be launched.
PSLV load will be less
With this, the powerful PSLV will be freed from the load of small satellites because all that work will now be done by SSLV. In such a situation, PSLV will be prepared for a big mission. This SSLV will be able to place small satellites in low earth orbit. This mission will be launched from Sriharikota at 9:18 am on Sunday.
Here are the features of SSLV
Let us tell you that SSLV is the brain child of ISRO Chief S Somnath. The SSLV is capable of carrying a payload weighing 500 kg, which will place the satellite in an orbit at an altitude of 500 km. Whereas in comparison, PSLV can put a payload weighing 1750 in Sun Synchronous Orbit i.e. 600 km above orbit.
Keeping an eye on the satellite market
There is no doubt that at this time the demand for launching micro, nano and small satellites is also high in the commercial market, so SSLV can prove to be a better option for these launches. Weighing 110 kg, SSLV is a three-stage rocket, all parts of which are of solid stage. It can be assembled in just 72 hours. While the rest of the launch vehicle takes about two months. Considering the growing small satellite launch market, SSLV can be made into a better player space sector in the coming days.
