Both satellites are in Sun-synchronous
orbit (SSO) which means they will travel from pole to pole to take images as the Earth rotates.
orbit of Diwata-2 means a regularly occurring passes around noontime and midnight.
It will operate in a sun-synchronous
orbit, at an altitude of 700 km.
PSLV-C45 lifted off at 9:27 Hrs (IST) from the Second Launch Pad and injected Indias EMISAT into a 748 km sun-synchronous
polar orbit, 17 minutes and 12 seconds after liftoff.
The Indian space agency said that the EMISAT was successfully injected into the sun-synchronous
polar orbit and theother 28 customer satellites will be placed into their designated orbits.
Summary: Sriharikota (Andhra Pradesh) [India], Apr 1 (ANI): The Indian Space Research Organisation's PSLVC-45 successfully injected electronic intelligence satellite EMISAT along with 28 international customer satellites into sun-synchronous
polar orbit on Monday.
We use these values in complex form, P = dX + idY in which we leave the Sun-synchronous
correction (SSC) applied by Mathews et al.
EgyptSat-A will also benefit from a more powerful carrier rocket, allowing it to be placed into a sun-synchronous
orbit more suited to Earth imaging than the lower-inclination orbit in which EgyptSat-2 operated.
The company launched 64 spacecraft to sun-synchronous
low Earth orbit via a SpaceX Falcon 9 that launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base.
Diwata-2 was inserted into the Sun-Synchronous
Orbit at an altitude of 621 kilometers, 43 minutes and 20 seconds after rocket liftoff.
The DOST said Diwata-2 boasts of added features from the previous Diwata launched into orbit in April 2016, with a deployable solar panel, enhanced resolution cameras, a sun-synchronous
orbit that will allow a fixed revisit interval and a larger area of coverage, an amateur ham radio unit for emergency satellite radio communications, an experimental altitude determination module and an omnidirectional sun-aspect sensor.
Talampas said Diwata-2 will also be staying longer in space at around three to five years, as it will be launched higher at 621 kilometers in a sun-synchronous
