PSLV-C20 Launch

SARAL, Sapphire, NEOSSat, UniBRITE, TugSat-1, AAUSat-3, STRaND-1 are planed to launch
on 25 Feb 2013, 12:31UTC by PSLV-C20 rocket from Satish Dhawan Space Center (Sriharikota, India).
I think TugSat-1 and AAUSat-3 are the amateur satellites.

Correction: Max Valier is not carried, it will be launched 2013 July from Plesetsk by Russia.
            It was replaced by STRaND-1.
