The satellite will be launched from Sriharikota by an Indian Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV). It will be controlled from the mission control centre in Bangalore. Science data will be downlinked to the two mission centres, one in India, one in France. Technical evaluation of thermal infrared data will be performed by the French team and evaluation of SWIR data by the Indian team. All of the mission’s science data will be accessible for analysis and distribution by the two partners.

Some measurements, such as those acquired in the upper atmosphere, will be shared and freely accessible for scientific research purposes and to spur development of applications for the benefit of society.
