SLV means Satellite Launch Vehicle.

An Indian four-stage, solid-propellant launch vehicle with a payload capacity of less than 50 kg into a low Earth orbit with a mean altitude of 600 km at an inclination of 47 degree. Following an initial failure, the SLV-3 successfully orbited three Rohini satellites in 1980, 1981, and 1983. The SLV-3 formed the basis of the ASLV (Advanced Space Launch Vehicle).

The Atlas SLV-3, or SLV-3 Atlas was an American expendable launch system derived from the SM-65 Atlas missile. It was a member of the Atlas family of rockets, and was used for three suborbital tests of X-23 Prime re-entry vehicles. Two orbital launches were also conducted, both of which failed.

The Atlas SLV-3 was a stage and a half rocket, built as a standardized replacement for earlier Atlas launch systems, which had been derived from the various Atlas missiles. A Burner upper stage was flown on the final flight to increase payload.

ATDA in orbit, with its payload fairing still attached.

It is most well known for launching the Augmented Target Docking Adapter (ATDA) , a backup for the Gemini Agena Target Vehicle which was to be used by Gemini 9 after its GATV failed to reach orbit. The launch was conducted on 1 June 1966, and was the first flight of the Atlas SLV-3 as an independent vehicle. It was only discovered after Gemini 9 had rendezvoused with it that the launch had itself failed, as the payload fairing had not separated.

The Atlas SLV-3 was also used as the first stage of several Atlas-Agena and Atlas-Centaur variants.

SLV is stands for?

Satellite Launch Vehicle-3 (SLV-3) , India's first experimental satellite launch vehicle was successfully launched on July 18, 1980 from SHAR Center Sriharikota, when Rohini satellite, RS-1, was placed in orbit. SLV-3 was a 22 m long, all solid, four stage vehicle weighing 17 tonnes capable of placing 40 kg class payloads in low earth orbit.

It employed an open loop guidance (with stored pitch programme) to steer the vehicle in flight along pre-determined trajectory. The first experimental flight of SLV-3, in August 1979, was only partially successful. Apart from the July 1980 launch, there were two more launches held in May 1981 and April 1983, orbiting Rohini satellites carrying remote sensing sensors.
