PSLV lite satellite launcher ISRO plans to develop a new three stage variant of the PLSV to place satellites weighing less than 500 kg into 400-500km low-earth orbit (LEO). A low earth orbit allows a satellite to return to map a targeted region on earth at more frequent intervals. Implications of a successful PSLV programme

  1. West opposes India’s development of PSLV, because it confers ICBM status to India.
  2. Demonstrated capability to launch and place IRS type satellites with almost 1/3rd cost.
  3. Big steps in the development of GSLV-a major goal of ISRO.
