Payloads:

Earth Exosphere Lyman Alpha Analyser (EELA) payload from Laboratory for Electro-Optics Systems (LEOS), Bengaluru Registers terrestrial exospheric line-of-sight neutral atomic hydrogen Lyman Alpha flux. Besides, it will estimate the interplanetary hydrogen Lyman-alpha background flux by means of deep space observations.

Origami Camera payload from SAC is a Remote Sensing Colour camera with a novel lens assembly for optical realisation in a small package. There is scope for its future scalability and utilisation in regular satellites.
