12-12-12 is special for SARAL’s launch: ISRO
Bangalore: In order to study the Oceanic parameters widely, the Indian Space Agency has chosen a 12/12/12 special date. The agency would be launching an Indo-French satellite ‘SARAL’ into the space to get readings about the Oceans.

Adding a feather to the hat, the agency, last week, completed a century as far as space related missions are concerned.

Named as 'SARAL', the satellite would zoom into space on board Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) PSLV-C20 from the Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh, spaceport on December 12, 2012, making it a memorable 12-12-12 affair.

The following information was given by Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) chairman K Radhakrishnan on Wednesday.

"As somebody said it's 12-12-12 (launch date)," he said at the Bangalore Space Expo 2012 that began here on Wednesday.

According to CNES, the French National Space Agency, SARAL stands for Satellite with ARgos and ALtika or "simple" in Hindi.

ARGOS system is dedicated to localisation, acquisition and distribution of environmental data while AltiKa is an innovating Ka-band altimeter system, dedicated to accurate measurement of ocean surface topography, CNES says.

On ISRO’s future plans, Radhakrishnan said the agency would like to focus on cutting edge research while Indian industry could build the launch vehicles.

"Operational launch vehicles like the PSLV and in future the GSLV could be built by the Indian industry," he said.

This 'consortium approach' would be beneficial to all as ISRO could focus on "high-end research and development activity", he said.
