India’s Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle will lift the CartoSat-2ER satellite into orbit to join the country’s CartoSat fleet that operates high-resolution, multi-band observation satellites for civilian and military applications. This mission will be the Return-To-Flight for the PSLV workhorse after a launch failure in 2016 in which the rocket’s payload fairing pyrotechnics malfunctioned and left the combined fourth stage-fairing-satellite stack stranded in a low orbit. In addition to CartoSat-2ER, PSLV will carry a number of secondary payloads of different shapes and sizes.
