Chennai, Jun 29: In an exclusive commercial launch to be witnessed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, India's national space agency ISRO is set to launch five satellites from four countries from the spaceport of Sriharikota.

The 49-hour countdown for the launch was progressing smoothly and preparations for Mobile Service Tower withdrawal to the parking end were also under progress, ISRO said.

PSLV C23 is scheduled to lift off from Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota at 9.52 am tomorrow.

After an estimated time of 20 minutes, ISRO's workhorse PSLV is expected to separate all five satellites -- one by one into their intended orbit, ISRO officials said.

Besides its main payload of 714 kg weighing French Earth Observation Satellite SPOT-7, PSLV C23 would carry 14 kg AISAT of Germany, NLS7.1 (CAN-X4).
