Launch Services

Antrix, the commercial arm of ISRO, has been providing Launch Services for customer satellites since 1999 aboard ISRO’s Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV). Over the years, the company has established itself as a leading launch service provider with a track record of successfully placing in orbit, 297 satellites for customers from 33 countries, until . In , PSLV C-37 successfully injected 104 satellites in to orbit – the highest number of satellites launched in a single mission so far.

With the operationalisation of the GSLV and the GSLV Mk-III by ISRO, Antrix has now substantially expanded the launch opportunities and versatility it can offer the customers. The launches are accomplished from Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SDSC) located at Sriharikotta in the South eastern part of India. Antrix has the capability to perform missions to LEO (Low and Mid-inclination), SSO, Sub – GTO, GTO orbits.

ISRO has also been developing the Small Satellite Launch Vehicle (SSLV), explicitly to cater to the burgeoning small satellite launch market. SSLV is getting built on a completely commercial model with a streamlined engagement mechanism with the customers in the backend primarily to provide a shortened contract to launch timeline and to be as responsive and adaptive as possible to the customer.

Antrix offers Comprehensive Launch Solutions – for both Ride Sharing and Dedicated Missions – supplemented with a wide variety of flight-proven Payload Separation systems and Adaptors developed in-house, for all category of satellites.

About the Launch Vehicle

Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) is the third generation launch vehicle of India. It is the first Indian launch vehicle to be equipped with liquid stages. After its first successful launch in October 1994, PSLV emerged as the reliable and versatile workhorse launch vehicle of India with 42 successful missions by Dec 2018. During 1994-2018 period, the vehicle launched 53 Indian satellites and 269 satellites for international customers.

Besides, the vehicle successfully launched two space crafts – Chandrayaan-1 in 2008 and Mars Orbiter Spacecraft in 2013 – that later travelled to Moon and Mars respectively

About the Launch Vehicle

Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle Mark II (GSLV Mk II) is a launch vehicle developed by India and is currently in operation for launching 2t class communication satellites. This fourth generation launch vehicle is a three stage vehicle with four liquid strap-ons. The indigenously developed cryogenic Upper Stage (CUS), which is flight proven, forms the third stage of GSLV Mk II. From January 2014, the vehicle has achieved four consecutive successes.

GSLV-MkIII

About the Launch Vehicle

GSLV Mk III is a three-stage heavy lift launch vehicle developed by ISRO. The vehicle has two solid strap-ons, a core liquid booster and a cryogenic upper stage.

GSLV Mk III is designed to carry 4t class of satellites into Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit (GTO) or about 10t to Low Earth Orbit (LEO), which is about twice the capability of GSLV Mk II.

The two strap-on motors of GSLV Mk III are located on either side of its core liquid booster. Designated as ‘S200’, each carries 205 tons of composite solid propellant and their ignition results in vehicle lift-off . S200s function for 140 seconds. During strap-ons functioning phase, the two clustered Vikas liquid Engines of L110 liquid core booster will ignite 114 sec after lift -off to further augment the thrust of the vehicle. These two engines continue to function after the separation of the strap-ons at about 140 seconds after lift -off.

The first experimental flight of LVM3, the LVM3-X/CARE mission lifted off from Sriharikota on December 18, 2014 and successfully tested the atmospheric phase of flight. Crew module Atmospheric Reentry Experiment was also carried out in this flight. The module re-entered, deployed its parachutes as planned and splashed down in the Bay of Bengal.

The first developmental flight of GSLV Mk III, the GSLV-Mk III-D1 successfully placed GSAT-19 satellite to a Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit (GTO) on June 05, 2017 from SDSC SHAR, Sriharikota.

Space port

Satish Dhawan Space Centre, Sriharikotta, commonly known as SHAR, situated on the Eastern coast of the country 80km off Chennai, is the Space port of India. SHAR is located just above the equator on the Northern latitude bounded by the vast Indian coast line, making it one of the most ideal launch sites in the world today. The centre has 2 launch complexes – First Launch Pad (FLP) and the Second Launch Pad (SLP)- both possessing state of the art assembly and clean room facilities. SHAR has had a humble beginning in 1971 with the launch of an RH-125 sounding rocket and the centre has come a long way ever since. It currently has Solid Motor Production and Testing facilities that are among the biggest in the world, Propellant Filling and Servicing facilities and state-of-the-art Range Operations for providing reliable Launch Services to the customers. The island has housing facilities for the employees and also has a fully functional Guest house for the customers who visit the island for launch operations.

Launch Complex

SHAR has 2 launch complexes, each capable of providing complete support for vehicle assembly, check out and launch operations for any kind of missions – LEO, GEO, Sub-GTO or GTO. The centre also has facilities that can support launch of sounding rockets.

Launch Facilities

SDSC, SHAR provides world class launch infrastructure and has an array of facilities aimed at providing simultaneous preparation and launch of multiple launch vehicles, over the year. The launch complex has end to end support facilities for vehicle assembly.

First Launch Pad

FLP was built in the early 1990’s following the concept of Integrate on the Pad, wherein, after assembling the rocket, a 3200ton Mobile Service Tower (MST), moves backward to it’s parking place.The facility is well equipped to handle the storage, transport and servicing of both earth storable and cryo propellants.FLP was built in the early 1990’s following the concept of Integrate on the Pad, wherein, after assembling the rocket, a 3200ton Mobile Service Tower (MST), moves backward to it’s parking place.The facility is well equipped to handle the storage, transport and servicing of both earth storable and cryo propellants.
