Re: Indian ASAT Test

One thing to remember. What did VKS say - we can do the test with an electronic target and also with an actual target. We have done this with an actual target. As for the former hmmmmm is enough.
We are methodical in our approach

In the launch preview, they seem to be downplaying the three orbit concept, they distinctly mention only two, then refer to the PSLV 4th stage more obliquely. Is the 3 orbit mission still on?

I think you need to review the video again. It clearly mentions what the PSLV 4th stage is going to do

Please note that what is seen on flight aware is not actual flight path but planned flight path running aitomatically. Flight radar gave a totally different path and military aircraft will shut down their ADSB positions..So no real sense in posting such information.
