Stretched Rohini Satellite Series
Super Rohini Satellite Series
Subsystem Rohini Satellite Series
Subcontracted Rohini Satellite Series


ISRO developed the SROSS (Stretched Rohini Satellite Series) Magnetosphere spacecraft as follow-ons to the successful Rohini satellite series. The SROSS vehicles were designed to carry small scientific and technology payloads, including astrophysics, earth remote sensing, and upper atmospheric monitoring experiments. SROSS C2 carried a gamma-ray burst (GRB) experiment consisting of two scintillators to study celestial gamma ray bursts and a Retarded Potential Analyser (RPA). The GRB monitored celestial gamma ray bursts in the energy range 20-3000 keV. The RPA measured temperature, density and characteristics of electrons in the Earth''s ionosphere.
