ISRO’s New Rocket Launch Fails
Satellites are no longer usable, according to the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), following the launch of the Small Satellite Launch Vehicle (SSLV-D1) on Sunday morning.
The problem has been correctly identified.
The deviation was caused by a logic failure to identify a sensor failure and proceed with a salvage action, according to ISRO.
ISRO will issue a detailed statement soon.
SSLV-D1 placed the satellites in an elliptical orbit 356 km x 76 km instead of a circular orbit 356 km.
A committee would investigate and make recommendations.
ISRO will release SSLV-D2 as soon as the recommendations are implemented.
The SSLV mission carried the Earth Observation Satellite EOS-02 as well as a student satellite known as AzaadiSAT.
