The team was seen beaming and congratulating each other after the range controller announced the successful separation of different stages, especially the heat shield, two minutes and 31 seconds after take-off and deployment of all the satellites except India's Microsat, which was injected into a lower obit an hour later.

2018 is going to be one of the most ambitious years for ISRO as it plans to launch a minimum of one satellite every month.

Contrary to the media reports over Isro's century with respect to satellites of India with the launch of three satellites of the country on Friday, Isro chairman A.S. Kirankumar said the number referred to satellites rolled out of Isro's satellite centre in Bengaluru. All satellites have been released. The Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) has launched "Cartosat-2" series satellite along with 30 co-passenger satellite at 9.28 a.m. ISRO has also adopted an optimum sequence so as to avoid any kind of collisions. So far Cartosat performance is satisfactory, ” he said at the mission control room. All of them have sensitive advanced cameras on board to take continuous images of the earth that are used for a variety of land information applications such as urban and rural planning, mapping, laying pipelines, and monitoring geographical assets. "Out of the 31 Satellites, 28 belonging to 6 other countries are carried by today's launch". More than half of the micro and nano satellites were for the Unites States, and the remainder India, Canada, Finland, France, South Korea and the United Kingdom.

Microsatellite (India): This is a 100 kg class satellite meant for technology demonstration and the fore runner for future satellites of this series.

The opening mission of 2018 was considered crucial for ISRO as the previous PSLV launch came as a setback to scientists as the backup navigation satellite IRNSS-1H could not be placed in orbit following a snag in the final leg of the PSLV-C39 mission in August a year ago. The failure was due to a problem with the heat shield in which the satellite in encased.
