ISRO is all set to welcome the new year with new launches. Their PSLV-C58 mission is set to launch the XPoSat satellite.

XPoSAT Satellite is launching in an eastward low-inclination orbit at 9:10 IST on Monday from Satish Dhawan Space Centre.

XPoSat, also known as the X-ray Polarimeter Satellite, marks ISRO's maiden dedicated scientific satellite designed for X-ray measurements.

The satellite configuration is adapted from the IMS-2 bus platform, with the mainframe systems drawing from the heritage of IRS satellites.

XPoSat carries two primary payloads: POLIX (polarimeter instrument in X-rays) and XSPECT (X-ray spectroscopy and timing).

POLIX is developed by the Raman Research Institute, while XSPECT is a creation of the Space Astronomy Group of URSC.
