  ISRO’s nine in a row

ISRO’s Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle [PSLV] made its ninth consecutively successful run into space today. It is termed a copy-book launch and makes India’s launch service a reliable one. The PSLV injected 4 satellites: the Cartosat-2, a space recovery module and one satellite each for Indonesia and Argentina. The Cartosat in particular is likely to carve out a large share in the lucrative space imagery market as it is capable of 80 cm. resolution, bettering the 1M offered by global leader Ikonos.

ISRO’s marketing arm Antrix says it has a steadily growing order book. Canada, Italy and Singapore are some of the countries that are turning to its assured, lower-cost service.
