ISRO to Launch Canadian Satellite
Oct 11, 2014

In view of the international restrictions on Russia over Ukraine, Canada has decided to sign a contract with Antrix, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO)’s commercial arm, for the launch of its satellite. At the inauguration of the International Astronautical Congress in Toronto on 6 October, Canada announced that Antrix would be given the contract for the July 2015 launch of its M3M (Maritime Monitoring and Messaging Micro-Satellite) communications satellite. M3M, built for the Department of National Defence, was to be launched with a Soyuz rocket in July this year but the federal government decided not to proceed with the contract.
