The Indian Area Analysis Organisation (ISRO) is all set to launch a communication satellite tv for pc on Thursday, 17 December at 3.41 pm IST from the Second Launch Pad (SLP) of Satish Dhawan Area Centre at Sriharikota. The communication satellite tv for pc CMS-01 shall be onboard the Polar Satellite tv for pc Launch Automobile (PSLV-C50). Whereas the launch date was initially scheduled for 7 December, it was pushed again to eight December and once more to 14 December as a result of dangerous climate and the opportunity of hurricanes, Eenadu reported. Yesterday, the PSLV-C50 together with the CMS-01 satellite tv for pc was moved to the launchpad in preparation for launch day.
PSLV-C50 is the 22nd flight of the PSLV within the ‘XL’ configuration, and the 52nd PSLV flight. ISRO added that this would be the 77th launch car mission from SDSC, SHAR. The PSLV is 44-metre-high and has 4 phases with six strap-on booster motors on to the primary stage that provides it is a increased thrust through the preliminary flight moments. ISRO has developed and used totally different PSLV variants, together with ones with both two or 4 strap-on motors, or the Core Alone variant with none strap-on motors. Because the PSLV just isn’t a reusable rocket, the primary stage will not be reclaimed and it’ll crash into the Indian Ocean.

Sivan had earlier said that the PSLV-C50 rocket launch shall be adopted by the launch of the brand new Small Satellite tv for pc Launch Automobile (SSLV) carrying the Earth Commentary Satellite tv for pc (EOS-02) and the Geosynchronous Satellite tv for pc Launch Automobile-F10 (GSLV) carrying the EOS-3. The opposite Indian satellites which can be prepared for launch are GISAT and Microsat-2A.
