The Technology Experiment Satellite, TES, which was launched by
ISRO's Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle, PSLV-C3, from Sriharikota yesterday
(October 22, 2001) is functioning well. The tests on various subsystems like
telemetry, command and power have been completed. The Satellite Positioning
System (SPS), which helps in accurate determination of the satellite's
location, has also been tested. The data handling systems are planned to be
tested in the coming days before the camera payload on board is turned on.
