The launch will be the first commercial flight of a PSLV involving a solitary satellite. Previously, the PSLV has launched lightweight satellites for Belgium, Germany and South Korea on commercial terms as piggyback payloads.</P> <P>Antrix has a series of payload contracts including a micro remote-sensing satellite for Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University and Lapan Tubsat’s spacecraft for Indonesia’s Aerospace Electronics Technology Centre. Both will be piggyback payloads aboard the PSLV.</P> <P>http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/India-wins-first-payload-contract-203964/
