for the first time ever, foreign satellites will be launched from India with the help of the country's space researchers.
Two satellites, one each from Germany and Korea along with an Indian satellite will be launched from the Sriharikota launch station. Officials at the Indian Space and Research Organisation (isro) say that this demonstrates India's capability to undertake satellite launch for other countries.
isro chief, K Kasturirangan says that isro is exploiting this capability on a commercial basis for the benefit of the country. Kasturirangan said that the Indian satellite is being launched to carry out oceanographic studies, related to identifying fish-catch locations and bio-diversity bases research. The other Korean and German satellites, to be launched with the same pay-load from the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle, Sriharikota, are research-based, and have cameras fitted on them.
Apart from this launch, Kasturirangan said that during May or June 1998, isro is planning to launch a communications satellite Insat 2E which will be put to orbit from a rocket of the European Space Agency from Kourou in French Guyana.
