Sriharikota, (AP) Nov 26 (PTI) The three nano-satellites developed by startups which were successfully placed into orbits during Saturday's PSLV C54/EOS-06 mission would have significant bearing in the private sector's future endeavours, a top official of space regulator Indian National Space Promotion and Authorisation Centre (IN-SPACe) said.

Apart from the primary payload -- an Earth Observation Satellite (Oceansat) and five other co-passenger satellites -- the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle C54 successfully placed Thybolt-1 and 2 satellites, 'Anand' nano-satellites developed by space startups Hyderabad-based Dhruva Space and Bangalore-based Pixxel, respectively.
