Dhruva Space space-qualifies 3U and 6U Satellite Orbital Deployers
Dhruva Space has announce the successful test and Space-qualification of its 3U and 6U Satellite Orbital Deployers and Orbital Link onboard Indian Space Research Organisation’s PSLV-C55 mission. The launch took place at 14:20 IST on 22 April 2023, from the First Launch Pad at Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SDSC) in Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh.
For the PSLV C55 mission, Dhruva Space utilised the PSLV Orbital Experimental Module (POEM) which allows inorbit scientific experiments using the spent PS4 stage as an orbital platform.
Given interfacing of the Spacecraft with the Launch Vehicle is a critical component to deployment of satellites, the company has indigenously developed satellite deployment systems that are compatible with the PSLV Launch Vehicle. The 6U Satellite Orbital Deployer (DSOD-6U), designed for the storage and delayed deployment of CubeSats into Low Earth Orbit and higher orbits, rounded off a mission success with confirmation of long–duration/planned delayed deployment. www.dhruvaspace.com
