Launch Date:20.09.1993


IRS-1E satellite is derived from the engineering model of IRS-1A flown on the first developmental flight of Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV). The satellite carried a Monocular Electro-Optical Stereo Scanner developed by DLR, Germany, and a LISS-I camera similar to that on IRS-1A. The satellite could not be placed into orbit by the PSLV-D1
