Satellite Launch Vehicle, in its thirty-second flight (PSLV-C29),
launched six satellites of Singapore into a 550 km circular orbit
inclined at 15 degrees to the equator. Of these six satellites,
TeLEOS-1 is the primary satellite weighing 400 kg whereas the other
five are co-passenger satellites which include two micro-satellites
and three nano-satellites. PSLV-C29 was launched from the First
LaunchÂ Pad at Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SDSC) SHAR,
Sriharikota. This is the eleventh flight of PSLV in 'core-alone'
configuration (without the use of solid strap-on motors).
Along with TeLEOS-1, the five co-passenger satellites
launched are VELOX-CI (123 kg) micro-satellite; VELOX-II (13 kg)
6U-Cubesat technology demonstrator; Athenoxat-1, a technology
demonstrator nano-satellite; Kent Ridge-1 (78 kg), a micro-satellite;
and Galassia (3.4Â kg ) 2U-Cubesat.
