Maiden flight of SSLV: Three propulsion stages performed well, problem was in identifying sensor failure, says ISRO


The ISRO Sunday said the maiden flight of newly developed Small Satellite Launch Vehicle (SSLV) can be termed as a partial success, with the three solid fuel-based propulsion stages working normally but the satellites getting injected into a wrong elliptical orbit due to failure of logic to identify a sensor failure. “SSLV-D1 placed the satellites into 356 km x 76 km elliptical orbit instead of 356 km circular orbit. Failure of a logic to identify a sensor failure and go for a salvage action caused the deviation. With the implementation of the recommendations, ISRO will come back soon with SSLV-D2,” a statement from the space agency said. The lift-off from India’s only spaceport in Sriharikota at 9:18am was typical of any other launch and remained so for the first three stages of the vehicle.
