India to launch two British satellites

The satellites, NovaSAR-1 and SSTL S1-4, will be carried into space by the Indian Space Research Organisation’s Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle-C42 which will take them to a height of 583km above the earth.

They will then be used to survey resources, monitor the environment, map ice cover, forests and disasters.

The satellites will be launched from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota and were developed by British company Surrey Satellite Technologies Limited.
