The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) will launch PSLV-C52, an earth observation satellite, into orbit on February 14 at 5.59 a.m., with the countdown beginning on Sunday morning. 

The news: This is Isro’s first launch mission of the year. PSLV-C52 is designed to place the 1710 kg EOS-04 into a 529 km sun-synchronous polar orbit, according to Isro.

What’s important: The PSLV-C52 will be launched from the First Launch Pad of Satish Dhawan Space Centre, Sriharikota.

  • EOS-04 is a Radar Imaging Satellite designed to provide high-quality images under all weather conditions for applications such as agriculture, forestry & plantations, soil moisture and hydrology and flood mapping, the space agency said.
  • The mission will also carry two small satellites as co-passengers: student satellite (INSPIREsat-1) from the Indian Institute of Space Science & Technology in association with the Laboratory of Atmospheric & Space Physics at the University of Colorado, Boulder, and INS-2TD, a technology demonstrator satellite from Isro. INS-2TD is a precursor to INS-2B, which is an India-Bhutan Joint Satellite.
