Dhruva Space successfully Space-qualifies 3U & 6U Satellite Orbital Deployers & Orbital Link

Dhruva Space has conducted the successful test and space-qualification of its ‘3U and 6U Satellite Orbital Deployers’ and ‘Orbital Link’ on board Indian Space Research Organisation’s (ISRO) PSLV-C55 mission.

The Hyderabad-based firm utilised the PSLV Orbital Experimental Module (POEM) which allows in-orbit scientific experiments using the spent PS4 stage as an orbital platform, said an official release.

The firm has indigenously developed satellite deployment systems compatible with the PSLV launch vehicle.

It was on June 30 that Dhruva Space’s 1U Satellite Orbital Deployer (DSOD-1U) was successfully space-qualified on board ISRO’s PSLV-C53.

For PSLV-C55, the company’s 3U Satellite Orbital Deployer (DSOD-3U) saw successful deployment status shortly after launch.

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.

Dhruva Space Orbital Link (DSOL) has been designed and was successfully tested and space-qualified to support satellite-based data relay applications.

The configurable transceiver was made for telemetry, telecommand and control, and payload data download with high data rates with successful reception confirmed from ISTRAC – ISRO’s Telemetry Tracking & Command Network, Port Blair ground station.
