India has launched 73 Indian Satellites (as of 5th January 2014) of many types since its first attempt in 1975. The organisation responsible for Indian Satellites is the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). Satellites have been launched from various vehicles, including those from ISRO, and from American, Russian, European satellite-launch rockets, and the U.S. Space Shuttle. The recent launch of GSLV-D5 satellite puts India in "cryo club", a select group of Spacefaring Nations that have the 'Crucial Cryogenic Engine Technology', which is necessary to carry heavy satellites. Countries which have such a capability are the US, Russia, France, Japan and China.

Indian Satellites

ISRO is all set to launch its own navigation satellite "IRNSS-1B" on 4 April 2014. IRNSS is an independent regional navigation satellite system developed by India. The Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV)-C24, will carry IRNSS-1B. The vehicle is expected to take off from the first launch pad on April 4, 2014 and ISRO will use the XL version of PSLV.
