ISRO lines up SARAL for February, restored GSLV for April

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has slated its first launch of the year – ocean study spacecraft SARAL – for February 14. It will herald the 8 to 10 missions, including satellites and launch vehicles, which ISRO has planned this year. Flights of the GSLV rocket would be resumed and the first of the navigational spacecraft would be sent up, an ISRO official told The Hindu . Along with the 450-kg Indo-French SARAL, the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) will put into orbit six small experimental satellites built by western universities for a fee.
