  • I'm curious to know what does Polar stand for in PSLV - the launch system ISRO has developed to launch satellites into their respective orbits. I tried searching for clues on official wikipedia pages and also on a few forums, but looks like no one has answered the question.

    If anyone knows the details, please share them below.

    Google 'Sun-synchronous orbit.'
    (PSLV launches remote sensing sats into sun synchronous orbits while GSLV launches Sats into Geostaticorbit)
    Are you sure? This action cannot be undone.

    So is it a launch vehicle that puts the satellite into the orbit that extends between the two poles (north & south)? ☕

    Yeah, u are correct.
    And Sun-Synchronous orbit means that the satellite crosses the same point again and again, at the same time each turn. So it helps in scanning fixed area at the same time of each day.
