PSLV-C54: The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) launched a PSLV-C54 rocket carrying EOS-06, also known as Oceansat-3, and eight nanosatellites from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Andhra Pradesh’s Sriharikota on Saturday.
PSLV-C54 was launched from Sriharikota’s First Launch Pad (FLP) at 11.56 a.m. in a two-hour multi-orbit launch operation. PSLV-primary C54’s cargo was the EOS-06. In Orbit-1, it will be separated.
“Following that, an orbit shift is planned using two Orbit ChangeThrusters (OCTs) installed in the PSLV-C54 Vehicle’s Propulsion Bay Ring. In Orbit-2, the Passenger Payloads (PPLs) will be separated “ISRO issued a statement.

ISRO’s Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle successfully launched an earth observation satellite (Oceansat) into a sun-synchronous orbit, according to the Indian Space Research Organization. The 44.4-meter-tall rocket took off at 11.56 a.m. from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre at this spaceport after a 25.30-hour countdown.
The Oceansat EOS-6 is a third-generation satellite in the Oceansat series.
This will provide continuity services for the Oceansat-2 spacecraft, which will have improved payload specs and application sectors. Ocean Color Monitor (OCM-3), Sea Surface Temperature Monitor and Ku-Band Scatterometer (SCAT-3), and ‘ARGOS’ Mission are the payloads.
