ISRO PSLV C-46 RISAT 2B: What is PSLV?

PSLV full form is Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle. The launch vehicle was developed to allow the country to launch its Indian Remote Sensing (IRS) satellites into sun-synchronous orbits. This was commercially available only from Russia service until the advent of the PSLV in 1993. The PSLV-C46 mission, which will be the 72nd launch vehicle mission from SDSC SHAR, Sriharikota and 36th launch from the First Launch pad, is the 14th flight of PSLV in ‘core-alone’ configuration, which means without the use of solid strap-on motors.

RISAT-2B, which is a Radar imaging earth observation satellite, will be placed into an orbit of 555 km at an inclination of 37 degree, says ISRO. The satellite possesses day and night as well as all-weather monitoring capability, thus helping in providing the country with real-time information.
