Polar satellite launch vehicle (PSLV) are the third generation launch vehicles. They are 4 stage launch vehicle with solid and liquid fuels. It can be modified to launch vehicle into geostationary orbit


Geosynchronous satellite launch vehicle (GSLV) is the most advanced launch vehicle developed by ISRO to launch INSAT series of satellites. GSLV Mark2 and GSLV Mark3 were designed for launching satellites with more than 2500 Kg



Consider the following.

  1. Satellite launch vehicle(SLV)
  2. Augmented satellite launch vehicle(ASLV)
  3. Polar satellite launch vehicle(PSLV)
  4. Geosynchronous satellite launch vehicle(GSLV)
