ISRO’s second commercial mission to Singapore

New Delhi New Space India Limited (NSIL), the commercial space mission arm of the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), on Monday announced its second consecutive commercial space mission, which will take off on July 31 aboard ISRO’s trusted rocket Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV). The mission, numbered PSLV-C56, will deploy a primary satellite and six additional satellites as part of the mission’s full payload.

The mission’s primary payload is the DS-SAR satellite of the Government of Singapore’s Defense Science and Technology Agency (DSTA), which will be used by Singapore government agencies for satellite imaging applications.

The mission comes three months after the PSLV mission, called PSLV-C55, which launched two satellites from Singapore. The second was Singapore’s ‘TeLEOS-2’ as the primary payload and Lumelite-4 as the secondary payload.

The six secondary payloads that will fly on the PSLV mission on July 31 include two technology demonstrator satellites, Velox-Am and Scoob-II, the experimental satellite Atmospheric Coupling and Dynamics Explorer (Arcade), the private nanosatellite Nulion and two others—Galaxia-12.

The PSLV-C56 mission for ISRO and NSIL comes after the central space agency launched its third lunar mission, Chandrayaan-3, on July 14. The mission seeks to land a rover and landing module on the Moon’s south pole—making India the first country in the world to do so. So far, China remains the only nation to have succeeded in landing on the moon on its first attempt—India’s Chandrayaan-2 failed to land on the moon four years ago. The Chandrayaan-3 mission is different from NSIL’s commercial missions using the PSLV satellite launch rocket. The mission is part of India’s efforts to capture a larger share of the commercial satellite launch market.

In October last year, a report by industry body Indian Space Association (ISpA) and consultancy firm EY India predicted that India would become a $13 billion space economy by 2025, of which satellite launch services and applications would account for 36% or over $4.5 billion.

NSIL is also developing a small satellite launch vehicle (SSLV) light rocket launcher for deploying small satellites in low-Earth orbit (LEO).

Key features of the launcher include fast turnaround between missions, on-demand services, and no need for clients to wait to share a ride with other satellites. SSLV has completed one successful demonstrator mission so far and is expected to conduct routine commercial missions within the next three years. mint Reported on March 6.

Along with NSIL, private space startups are also tipped to contribute to India’s space ambitions.
