MicrospaceNews: New Indian Microsat Effort

The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), will help the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur develop a new microspacecraft focused on agricultural and disaster monitoring. Based on Indian technology, the microsat will take about 18 months to develop.
COMMENT: Note there is no description of this as a research or experimental satellite. It's simply being developed to do a job - another sign of the maturity of microspacecraft.
