ISRO to Launch GSAT-7A Communication Satellite on December 19
On December 19, 2018: India will launch its most recent communication satellite, GSAT-7A on board Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV-F11) from Satish Dhawan Space Center at Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh.
The GSLV-F11 is ISRO’s fourth gen launch vehicle with three phases. The lunch vehicle, which is in its thirteenth flight, will infuse GSAT-7A into a Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit (GTO).
- GSAT-7A, which weighs around 2,250 kg, is the 35th com. satellite worked by ISRO. It is designed on ISRO’s standard I-2000 Kg (I-2K) Bus. The satellite with a mission life of eight years has been worked to give communication capacity to the clients in Ku-band over the Indian part.
- The satellite will be set in its last Geostationary Orbit (GEO) utilizing the locally available impetus framework. According to ISRO, GSAT-7A will take a couple of days after partition from the launcher to achieve its orbital space.
- While four fluid lash-ons and a strong rocket engine at the center shape the principal phase of the dispatch vehicle, the second stage is outfitted with high pushed motor utilizing fluid fuel. The Cryogenic Upper Stage shapes the third and last phase of the vehicle.
On December 5, 2018, India’s cutting edge high throughput com satellite, GSAT-11 was effectively propelled from the Kourou base in French Guiana by Ariane-5 VA-246. The com satellite, weighing around 5854 kg, is the heaviest satellite worked by ISRO.
The satellite is the fore-sprinter in the arrangement of cutting edge com satellites with multi-spot bar receiving wire inclusion over Indian territory and Islands.
It is required to assume a fundamental job in giving broadband around the nation. It will likewise give a stage to show new age applications.
