The PES University will be launching two more satellites and the two satellites -PISAT 2 and PISAT-3 will be successors of the ISRO's Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle along with seven co-passenger satellites. These two satellites-PISAT 2 and PISAT-3, will be improvised versions of the first satellite. The PISAT-2 will be a more stable platform in comparison to its predecessor and its launch will be in the next six months. However, it is for ISRO to decide when the launch will take place. At the same time, the team behind PISAT has started working on the PISAT-3, which is expected to be launched in a year-and-a-half from now.
For this, the University has collaborated with the Indian Institute of Astrophysics (IIA), which will develop a payload that will be onboard the satellite. IIA will develop an astronomical payload and the satellite will also carry an optical camera. The primary objective of launching these satellites is to motivate the students in designing and developing so that they will gain expertise in satellite technology at the time of studies.
