The rocket will lift off from the second launch pad at Sriharikota at 6.02pm on Thursday. It is the 16th launch from the second launch pad.

The rocket will carry three satellites. DS-EO, a 365kg weighing electro-optic, multi-spectral satellite, NeuSAR, a 155kg satellite and 2.8kg Scoob-1. Scoob-1 is a satellite from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.
This is the second dedicated commercial mission of NewSpace India Limited (NSIL).
After injecting the satellites, the PSLV Orbital Experimental Module (POEM) will perform in-orbit scientific experiments using the spent PS4 stage as an orbital platform. “It is the first time that the PS4 stage would orbit the earth as a stabilized platform. Attitude stabilization is achieved using a dedicated NGC system,”
