Microsat R



The Microsat-R satellite comes from the Defense Development and Research Organization — DDRO — the research and development agency of the Indian military. The roughly 1,631-pound (740-kilogram) satellite was to be deployed in an unusually-low orbit around 170 miles (274 kilometers) above Earth, the Hindu reported.

ISRO provided no details about Microsat-R in a press kit released before the launch, other than to describe it as an “imaging satellite.”
