A PSLV-XL launch vehicle launched from Satish Dhawan Space Centre, India at 0626 GMT on 26 November. It carried nine satellites. The main payload was a one metric ton satellite called EOS-06, also known as Oceansat-3. It is primarily an ocean observation monitoring satellite including an ocean colour monitor (OCM-3), a sea surface temperature monitor (SSTM), a Ku-band Oceansat scatterometer (O-SCAT-3) and a French meteorological payload called ARGOS. Other satellites aboard included four Astrocast satellites which are part of a L-band CubeSat constellation, the INS-2B (aka ISRO NanoSatellite 2B) which was partially built by Bhutanese engineers at ISRO facilities as part of a training programme, Pixxel-1, a demonstration unit for an Earth Imaging constellation, and two Thybolt amateur radio satellites.
