    According to
    
    http://www.isro.org/pressrelease/Jan21_2008.htm
    
    The 300 kg TECSAR satellite was placed into its intended orbit with a perigee (nearest point to
    earth) of 450 km and apogee (farthest point to earth) of 580 km with an orbital inclination of 41
    deg with respect to the equator. TECSAR was placed in orbit 1185 sec after lift off. 
    
    It's a small satellite.
