ISRO Saturday successfully launched two commercial Singaporean satellites in a mission that, for the first time, will see solar panels powering the PSLV rocket’s final stage for conducting month-long experiments. The ISRO launched the solar panels ,For the first time, there will be a deployable solar panel on the upper stage of a rocket. That is another exciting thing to happen,” said ISRO chairperson S Somanath.
The PSLV-C55 rocket’s main payload is an earth observation satellite, TeLEOS-2, developed by SD Engineering. It will be used to support satellite imaging requirements of Singapore government agencies.
Now the INDIA is increasing their technology in SCIENCE field. The exiting thing is India has offered at least nine launches to Singapore.PSLV-C55 rocket’s PSLV-C55 rocket’s
This is also the first time that the first two stages of the PSLV were combined at the newly created PSLV Integration Facility. This is important because it cuts down the time between missions. Rockets are usually assembled on the launch pad with the help of a mobile service tower — but this process can’t begin until the pad is prepared for the launch. Now, vehicle assembly can begin along with launchpad preparations.
For forthcoming PSLV missions, all four stages of the rocket will be integrated at the new facility, transported to the launchpad on a mobile platform, and then integrated with the satellite before launch.
GOAL BEHIND THIS:-
“The goal is to have increased production and launches of PSLV in the times to come, especially as the industry is taking over from us to operate in large numbers,” the ISRO chairperson said after the launch. By this launches the income of INDIA will increase and the their is an increasement in technology.
Although transfer of the PSLV to the industry has been in the works since before the space sector was opened up to private players in 2020, the recently released Indian Space Policy 2023 says ISRO will move out of routine activities and focus more on research and innovation
The space agency’s PSLV launch vehicle, in its 57th flight, blasted off with two Singapore-made satellites as its ‘passengers.’

On Saturday successfully launched its PSLV-C55/TeLEOS-2 mission, sending two Singapore-made satellites into the space. The launch vehicle lifted off at its scheduled 2:19 pm launch time from Isro’s Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SDSC) in Andhra Pradesh’s Sriharikota, at the end of a 22.5-hour countdown.
