Notably, this has been one of the longest satellite missions undertaken by the Indian space agency. The first separation was the primary payload, Oceansat in the first orbit.
The remaining eight nano-satellites were injected to their own requirements. They are all in separate Sun-synchronous polar orbits.
The Earth Observation Satellite was placed at an altitude of approximately 742 km. The newly launched Earth Observation Satellite-6 comes in the third generation of the Oceansat series.
