ISRO’s Small Satellite Launch Vehicle(SSLV) and How it varies from PSLV
ISRO’s Vikram Sarabhai Space Center (VSSC) at Thumbahas finished the plan for the Small Satellite Launch Vehicle (SSLV), the ‘child rocket’ charged as the snappiest method to space for little size satellites. The SSLV guarantees on – request access to space, with the rocket get together taking an insignificant 15 days and least work force to do as such.
On the Launchpad, the SSLV will stand 34 m tall, 10m shorter than the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) and around 15 m shorter than the MkII adaptation of the Geosynchronous Satellite Launch vehicle (GSLV).
What is SSLV?
Little Satellite Launch Vehicle (SSLV) is a dispatch vehicle being produced by the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO).
The vehicle can dispatch committed payloads or different satellites into low earth circle or sun-synchronous circle.
The payload will be 300 to sun synchronous circle (SSO) and 500 kg to low earth circle (LEO).
It was produced with the point of propelling little satellites monetarily at radically marked down cost.
The initial three phases of the vehicle utilize strong fuel, with a fourth stage being a speed trimming module.
How is SSLV not quite the same as PSLV?
Little Satellite Launch Vehicle(SSLV) will stand 34 m tall, 10m shorter than the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle(PSLV).
SSLV is additionally a ‘more slender’ dispatch vehicle, having a measurement of only 2 m.
PSLV dispatch includes 600 authorities while SSLV dispatch activities would be overseen by a little group of around six individuals.
Not at all like PSLV (Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle) and GSLV(Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle), the dispatch availability time of SSLV is relied upon to be not exactly seven days rather than months.
The SSLV can be amassed both vertically and on a level plane though the PSLV and GSLVs are gathered vertically.
The assembling cost of SSLV is relied upon to be 10% of that of PSLV and it will have a higher dispatch rate when contrasted with PSLV.
