Successful launch of the PSLV-C54 rocket developed in India and Bhutan by ISRO

According to the external affairs ministry, Bhutan would receive high-resolution photos from the India-Bhutan SAT to help manage the nation’s natural resources.

The Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) C54 was successfully launched by the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) on Saturday from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh, according to ISRO.

Bhutan and India collaboratively constructed a satellite that was launched on an Indian rocket alongside eight other nanosatellites, enabling the Himalayan nation to manage its natural resources with the use of high-resolution photography.

One of the satellites launched on Saturday was India’s Earth Observation Satellite-06 (EOS-06), a third-generation Oceansat satellite.

This PSLV flight, the 56th overall, served as the PSLV-C54 rocket’s last mission of the year.

A high-level team from Bhutan led by Minister of Information and Communications Karma Donnen Wangdi attended the launch of the India-Bhutan SAT.

The launch was also attended by an 18-person group of journalists from Bhutan who are in India for a week-long familiarisation trip.

According to the external affairs ministry, India has helped to increase the ability of Bhutanese engineers by providing practical training at the UR Rao Satellite Centre in Bengaluru.

These engineers have training in processing and analysing satellite data as well as designing and testing satellites. The combined creation of the specially designed satellite for Bhutan, according to the ministry, was the result.

According to the statement, Bhutan would be able to manage its natural resources with the use of high-resolution photos from the India-Bhutan SAT.

India’s attempts to support Bhutanese King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck’s intentions to utilise cutting-edge technology, particularly ICT and space technology, for the development of Bhutan include the launch of the new satellite. The partnership also adheres to India’s “neighbourhood first” philosophy.

With assistance from ISRO, the two nations jointly inaugurated a ground earth station for the South Asia Satellite (SAS) in Thimphu during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Bhutan in August 2019.

Members of the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation can already take use of free television broadcasts and VSAT services thanks to SAS, which was founded by India in 2017 for South Asian nations (Saarc).

Bhutan’s first domestic nano-satellite, known as Bhutan-1, was developed with support from Japan and launched in 2018 aboard a SpaceX rocket.
