Bengaluru: India will launch Singapore’s DS-SAR satellite and six other satellites via PSLV-C56 on July 30 from Sriharikota Space Center of the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO). The space agency said the satellites will be launched from the first launch pad at Sriharikota center at 6.30 am. The DS-SAR satellite has been developed under a partnership between Singapore’s Defense Science and Technology Agency (DSTA) and Singapore’s ST Engineering. The satellite will be used to meet the satellite imagery requirements of various agencies of the Government of Singapore. Read also ST Engineering will use it to provide multi-modal and high quality imagery and geospatial services to its commercial customers. DS-SAR carries the ‘Synthetic Aperture Radar’ (SAR) payload developed by ‘Israel Aerospace Industries’ (IAI). This enables DS-SAR to take one metre-resolution images during day and night and full polarimetry during all weather conditions. 🇮🇳PSLV-C56🚀/🇸🇬DS-SAR satellite 🛰️ Mission: The launch is scheduled for 📅 July 30, 2023 ⏲️ 06:30 Hrs.
