ISRO Nano Satellites
/ Activities /
ISRO Nano Satellites (INS) is a versatile and modular Nano satellite bus system
envisioned for future science and experimental payloads. With a capability to carry
up to 3 kg of payload and a total satellite mass of 11 kg, it offers immense
opportunities for future use. The INS system is developed as a co-passenger
satellite to accompany bigger satellites on PSLV launch vehicle. Its primary
objectives include providing a standard satellite bus for launch on demand services
and providing opportunity to carry innovative payloads.
The primary objectives of INS system are to:
PSLV-C37 carried two ISRO Nano Satellites – INS-1A and INS-1B as co-passenger
satellites, which was launched on Feb 15, 2017. INS-1C was launched by PSLV-C40 on Jan
12, 2018, as a co-passenger satellite.
