SHRI PRITHVIRAJ CHAVAN: This is the first time that a PSLV Mission has carried and placed in orbit a commercial primary satellite belonging to an international party. Along with the Italian satellite, the PSLV-C8 also carried the AAM module consisting of next generation avionic packages. The current PSLV-C8 without the use of six solid strap on motors, is the first flight of the PSLV with such a configuration and has been developed so as to provide for lower satellite launch mass requirements, in a cost effective manner.
