Thanks for the thread buddy.
The thread is strictly about schedules or tentative orbital and sub orbital launches. I will always post an updated summary for launches planned for next 3 years after every update. No other discussions are requested and will get deleted or moved.

There is no need to put an entire article to apprise us about date. Just leave the URL and state the launch schedule below it. Further, this thread will not cover launch of sounding rockets.

Before August 2022 - Gaganyaan-M1/GSLV MkIII - ??
NISAR (Indo US)/GSLV MkII F??

2020s
Mangalyaan - 2/GSLV MkIII (mated with SCE200) - ??
Lunar Polar Exploration Mission (Indo Japan)/GSLV MkIII (mated with SCE200) - ??
Shukrayaan-1/GSLV MkIII M?
Indian space habitation module/GSLV MkIII (mated with SCE200) -?? or Indian HLLVs
Indian lunar sample return mission/HLLV pr GSLV MkIII with SCE200

Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System or NAVIC expansion satellites × 4

2025 - DISHA aeronomy satellites × 2

Global Indian Navigation Satellite System or NAVIC-2 × 24 to 32 satellites

Indian Spectroscopic Imaging Space Telescope (INSIST, somewhat similar to Hubble) - GSLV MkIII or UMLV mid heavy

2028 - Indian mission to Jupiter/GSLV MkIII

The list covers only official proposals (proposed by ISRO or IIA personnel at some point of time). Timeline may be shifted towards very long delays as research barriers or launch failures aren't being assumed.

Further, to launch Gaganyaan M1 in 2022, we need at least 7-8 launches of GSLV MkIII between 2022 which I don't think is practical and mission might get delayed.


BTW, keep posting above list with updates (only upto 2025) after every update. That's how we are going to run this thread.

Regards

  • EOS-03/GISAT-1 - GSLV MkII F10 - Geostationary earth observation - March/April
  • EOS-02/Microsat-2A - SSLV D1 - Reconnaissance - April
  • EOS-04/RISAT-1A - PSLV-C52 - Reconnaissance - July
  • 3 X BlackSky globe satellites (foreign) - SSLV D2 - July
  • EOS-06/OceanSat-3 - PSLV-C53 - Oceanography - October
  • NVS-01 - GSLV MkII F14 - Next generation NAVIC - November
  • Uncrewed Gaganyaan's first experimental orbital mission - GSLV MkIII M3
1+7 = 8 highest ever in number but again it includes 2 SSLV.

The Indian Space Research Organisation has revised the launch schedule of geo imaging satellite GISAT-1 on board GSLV-F10 rocket following a "minor issue" with the spacecraft.
The Bengaluru-headquartered space agency was earlier looking to launch the satellite on March 28, subject to weather conditions.
"There is a minor issue with the satellite", ISRO sources told PTI.
"As of now, we are planning to launch it on April 18".
