In a dedicated commercial mission, ISRO’s workhorse
launch vehicle PSLV-C56 on Sunday successfully launched seven Singapore
satellites, including the primary payload DS-SAR, a Radar Imaging Earth
Observation satellite, from the spaceport of SHAR Range, Sriharikota.
“PSLV-C56/DS-SAR Mission fully accomplished”, ISRO said.
After a 25.5 hour countdown, the 44.4 m tall four-stage vehicle with a
lift off mass of 228 tonnes, took off majestically from the First Launch
Pad at 0630 hrs.
