IRS 1E ? [ISRO]

IRS-1E (Indian Remote Sensing Satellite) satellite was an experimental Indian earth observing satellite, which was derived from the engineering model of IRS-1A incorporating a Monocular Electro-Optical Stereo Scanner developed by DLR, Germany, and a LISS-I camera similar to that on IRS-1A.

IRS-1E was the passenger on the maiden flight of India's PSLV-G (1) rocket, which was launched in September 1993. The launch failed and IRS-1E did not reach orbit.
