Background: PSLV, Antrix, ISRO.
- Next year, ISRO may be beating its own record and sending 68 tiny satellites of a single customer into space on one rocket.
- The 68 nano satellites can be packed into smaller bundles each carrying four or more satellites – as was done for one customer in June. They will be tucked into spare spaces available on the launcher. ISRO may send them up along with a primary foreign satellite.
- Antrix (as ISRO’s commercial outfit) markets the PSLV internationally and has so far put 74 small, medium and solo spacecraft in orbit.
