Sriharikota: India's EMISAT satellite was Monday successfully launched onboard the polar rocket PSLV-C45 from this spaceport.

After a perfect lift-off at the end of the 27-hour countdown, the nearly 50 metre-tall PSLV C-45 injected the 436 kg EMISAT into the orbit about 17 minutes later.

The EMISAT satellite is aimed at electromagnetic measurement.
