The Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) C-43 launched 31 satellites successfully, Indian Space and Research Organization (ISRO) said.

The satellite was launched from Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SDSC) or Sriharikota Range (SHAR), in Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh at around 9:58 am.

This year, it is the sixth flight of Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV).

PSLV-C 43 Indian satellite inspecting the Earth has taken high-resolution earth imaging satellite HysIS (Hyperspectral Imaging Satellite) and 30 other satellites into space with them. Of these, 23 are of satellite America.

The Indian Space Agency said that the 45th flight of PSLV was from the First Launch Pad (FLP) of Satish Dhawan Space Center in Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh.

“HysIS is an earth observation satellite developed by ISRO. It is the primary satellite of PSLV-C 43 mission,” ISRO said.

ISRO said that the satellite will be installed in the 636 km Polar Sun-synchronous orbit (SSO) with an inclination of 97.957 degree. The mission life of the satellite is five years.

The Space Agency said that the primary goal of the HysIS is to study the surface of the Earth in infrared and short wave infrared areas near electromagnetic spectrum.
