PSLV C37 104 Satellites

PSLV C37

PSLV C37 satellite launch vehicle has launched 104 satellites in to the orbit on 15th February 2017. It is the first vehicle to earn the distinction of having launched maximum number of satellites in the world. Indian scientists had achieved this from Satish Dhawan Space Center at Sriharikota. It has replaced the previous record of launching 37 satellites from Russian scientists. It launched 104 satellites out of which three satellites from India, 88 from USA and other from Germany, Netherlands, Kazakhstan, Switzerland, Israel and UAE countries.

PSLV C37 104 Satellites:

  1. CARTOSAT-2D (INDIA) about 650 kg

  2. INS-1A (INDIA)

  3. INS-1B (INDIA) both 1A and 1B about 15 kg

  4. Remaining satellites are about 820 kg

  5. Total 104 satellites weight about 320,000 kg

Why This PSLV C37 Is Special?

PSLV C37 launched 104 satellites which is the World Record, a great achievement of Indian scientists at ISRO, Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh, India.

What Is PSLV Satellite Vehicle?

Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) is a satellite launch vehicle from Indian Space Organization (ISRO). PSLV is also called as Expendable Launch System (One time used). PSLV was developed to launch Indian Remote Sensing (IRS) satellites in to Sun Synchronous Orbits. The best feature of PSLV is, it can launch multiple small size satellites in to GTO (Geostationary Transfer Orbit).

Statements From Scientists:

1. ISRO Chairman Kiran Kumar:

Scientific and low price experiments were proved successful by the special feat of PSLV C 37 vehicle. With the launch of 104 satellites, satellite research and development capabilities of India were made popular to the rest of the world. International market for India improved considerably as many other nations look to India for getting launched their own satellites through Indian launching vehicles.

2. PSLV Project Director, Jaya Kumar:

The success of the project represents the ISRO scientists’ capabilities on fabrication and launching methods. 104 satellites were inserted in predefined orbits. PSLV C 37 vehicle has created a World record. In this project, innovative adaptor was used to track all satellites routes. Using the adaptor, the PSLV C 37 vehicle inserted all satellites and IRNSS 1A and 1B were used to track satellite insertion and their directions.

3. Shar Director, Kunhi Krushan:    

The satellites were inserted in the specified orbit zones successfully. It had 28 hours countdown procedure which is of very lesser duration than other PSLV experiments. Foreign countries got very high confidence from this PSLV C37. It is the 30th consecutive successful experiment. ISRO is now busy with three more upcoming experiments. Other scientists also shared their happiness and success of PSLV C37 with Indian scientists like VSSC Director, Dr.Shivan; LPSC director Somanath; IISU director Thapan Mistra; Cartosat director Sadhananda Rao and others.
