The Core alone variant of India’s Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle, the PSLV-CA while flying on its PSLV-C29 mission, successfully launched six satellites from Singapore into a 550 km circular orbit inclined at 15 degrees to the equator. The launch took place from Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SDSC) at Sriharikota at 1230 GMT on 16 December 2015.

Of the six satellites carried on the flight, TeLEOS-1 was the primary satellite, weighing in at 400 kg.   The satellite is designed to provide imagery from the equatorial region with a revisit time of only 12 to 16 hours.  The five co-passenger satellites launched are VELOX-CI (123 kg) micro-satellite designed to conduct atmospheric research using radio signal occultation; VELOX-II (13 kg) 6U-Cubesat technology demonstrator; Athenoxat-1, a technology demonstrator nano-satellite; Kent Ridge-1 (78 kg), a micro-satellite specialising in hyperspectral imagery; and Galassia (3.4 kg ) 2U-Cubesat for education and science research.
