IRSO Launches 104 Satellites From a Single Rocket

Last week the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) put a record 104 satellites into orbit with a single launch, and now it’s preparing to launch Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle Mark III (GSLV Mark-III) in a few months. 

India's Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle, in its thirty-ninth flight (PSLV-C37), launched the 714 kilogram Cartosat-2 series satellite for earth observation and 103 co-passenger satellites together weighing about 663 kilograms at lift-off into a 505-kilometer polar Sun Synchronous Orbit (SSO).

LabSat Releases LabSat 3 Wideband GNSS Simulator

LabSat announced the launch of the new LabSat 3 Wideband, which can record multiple signals from different constellations, simultaneously, and the company also is developing an updated version of its SatGen software.

The LabSat 3 Wideband can record GPS L1, L2 and L5 at the same time as GLONASS G1 and G2, and BeiDou B1 and B2. The company describes the lightweight unit as its most powerful to date, yet the small, easy-to-use LabSat 3 Wideband retains the one-touch recording and playback of files.
