ISRO will be handling at least two commercial satellite launches, if not four, in the next one year on the tested PSLV vehicle, according to a senior official.
Among the orders clinched is NLS-4, which is most likely to be flown by the end of 2007. NLS-4 is a cluster of six nanosats for the Toronto University – coordinated mission. The nanosats weigh from 1 kg to 5 kg and are being put up by six universities, according to Mr K.R. Sreedhara Murthi, Executive Director of ISRO’s marketing arm, Antrix Corporation. He did not reveal the revenue they would fetch.
