"Our commercial arm Antrix Corporation has signed agreements with a British firm January 29 and a Singapore agency on Wednesday to launch their spacecraft onboard our polar satellite launch vehicle (PSLV)," an official of the state-run Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) said here.

The customers are DMC International Imaging, a subsidiary of the Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd, for launching its three 350kg disaster monitoring satellites and ST Electronics (Satcom and Sensor Systems) Pte Ltd, Singapore, for launch of its 400kg TeLEOS-1 earth observation satellite.

"The launches will take place between 2014-15 when we receive the spacecraft from the customers. Details of weight of satellites, instruments to be taken onboard and their location in the polar (north-south) orbit will be worked out in coming months," the official said.

The satellites will be launched from the Indian spaceport at Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh off the Bay of Bengal.
