NELLORE: The Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) is gearing up to launch nine satellites, including its earth observation satellite EOS-06 (Oceansat-3), Bhutan SAT and seven nano satellites, on board the PSLV-C54 on November 26.
The launch will take place at 11.56 am from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre at SHAR of Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh.
A senior Isro official said that four of the nano satellites were of Spaceflight USA, a Seattle-based company, one was of Astrocast, a Swiss communication company and two (Tybolt 1 and 2) of Hyderabad-based Druva Space.
Officials said this would be the 56th PSLV mission and its third launch in 2022, following the PSLV-C53 mission on June 30 and the PSLV-C52 mission on February 14.
The Oceansat-3 is the fourth satellite among a series of five earth observation series planned. The data from these satellites is used for agriculture, managing water resources, urban planning, rural development, mineral prospecting, environment, forestry and disaster management.
