ISRO bullish on LVM3, six PSLV, three GSLV launches in 2024

ISRO bullish on LVM3, six PSLV, three GSLV launches in 2024

In a recent update to the Rajya Sabha, the Indian government disclosed the Indian Space Research Organisation's (ISRO) ambitious launch schedule for 2024. ISRO has charted six Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) missions, three Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV) launches, and a commercial mission employing the Launch Vehicle Mark-3. Minister of State in the Prime Minister's Office, Jitendra Singh, outlined that among these missions, ISRO plans to launch a technology demonstration satellite during the third development flight of its Small Satellite Launch Vehicle (SSLV).

The Gaganyaan program, India's human spaceflight initiative, is set to see two unmanned missions in 2024. These missions aim to validate the human-rated launch vehicle and the orbital module in real flight conditions. Additionally, various sub-orbital missions using a test vehicle will assess the Gaganyaan Crew Escape System under different abort scenarios.

Furthermore, ISRO has scheduled two autonomous runway landing experiments for its Reusable Launch Vehicle with a winged body. The plan also includes launching the GSAT 20 communication satellite through a commercial contract with NewSpace India Limited (NSIL).

The diverse lineup of PSLV missions encompasses launches for a space science satellite, an Earth observation satellite, technology demonstrations, and two commercial missions facilitated by NSIL. The GSLV missions will deploy satellites for meteorology, navigation, and a joint NASA-ISRO Synthetic Aperture Radar satellite. The NSIL will conduct a commercial mission using the Launch Vehicle Mark-3. The extensive schedule underscores India's commitment to advancing its space capabilities and expanding its footprint in space exploration.
