On August 7, 2022, ISRO will launch a special satellite called AzaadiSAT in honour of India's upcoming Independence Day. As part of the ongoing Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav celebrations, which honour the 75th anniversary of Independence, AzaadiSAT was launched. 750 female students from 75 schools across India worked together to design, develop, and construct the microsatellite known as AzaadiSAT. The Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SDSC) in Sriharikota will use the most recent Small Satellite Launch Vehicle (SSLV) to launch the 8 kg satellite into orbit. Along with AzaadiSAT, the SSLV D1 will also be carrying a 135 kg Earth observation satellite experiment from India called EOS-02.  If you are preparing for competitive exams and looking for expert guidance, you can download our General Knowledge Free Ebook Download Now.

AzaadiSAT will transport 75 tiny payloads

A regular orbital satellite called AzaadiSAT was created by more than 750 females from 75 different schools across the nation.


AzaadiSAT was developed with the help of a Chennai-based organization called Space Kidz with the goal of boosting STEM education among female students. After liftoff, AzaadiSAT will separate from the SSLV D1 at a distance from Earth of 356 kilometres, and it will then be sent into lower Earth orbit (LEO).

The concept, development, and building of the microsatellite involved predominantly female students in grades 8 through 12. It has long-range communication transponders, 75 Femto experiments, and selfie cameras to take photographs of its solar panels.

AzaadiSAT's mission life has been intended to last for six months.

The microsatellite will also contain a recording of the national anthem performed by Rabindranath Tagore in addition to its 75 experimental payloads. India's national anthem will be played in the area via AzaadiSAT as a tribute to the nation.

AzaadiSAT Launch on SSLV's First Flight

AzaadiSAT's launch from Andhra Pradesh's Sriharikota will also be the first use of ISRO's recently created Small Satellite Launch Vehicle (SSLV). ISRO has created the SSLV, a small vessel with a mass of 110 tonnes. In contrast to other similar launch boats that take roughly 70 days to integrate, the launch vehicle will require only 72 hours. With only 6 people needed to launch a satellite, SSLV has significantly streamlined the launch systems. Additionally, SSLV's construction will only cost Rs 30 crore.

The inclusion of SSLV in its portfolio will provide the space agency with another way to promote its products since ISRO is fast becoming the chosen agency for satellite launches worldwide. Due to its low price, flexibility to launch on demand, and ability to carry many loads, it will also be the favoured launch vehicle. SSLV is a good option for commercial missions for private corporations, academic institutions, and developing nations who want to launch their satellites into low Earth orbit.
