SUCCESSFUL LAUNCH!

Both AISSat-1 and TIsat-1 have been successfully delivered into orbit by PSLV-C15. XPOD19S releases TIsat-1 upon receiving command from the PS4 at T+1169.4. This is followed by XPOD15G activation at T+1219.4 to release AISSat-1.

AISSat-1 ground station in Svalbard, Norway has achieved contact with the spacecraft and it is confirmed to be healthy.

TIsat-1 has been heard by several amateur radio operators, and appear to be in good health.

A total of 7 objects (5 spacecraft, 1 DLA, and rocket body) are being tracked and cataloged by NORAD. In the next days, we will work together with our colleagues at NORAD and at the various ground stations to identify the individual objects.
