ISRO's Navigation Satellite successfully launched

Bright and early beginning for Isro

This was ISRO's second attempt at launching a replacement. The rocket stages (engines) have been fuelled up. Two more augmentation rockets ignited around 25 seconds after liftoff to give the 145-foot-tall (44-meter) launcher another boost into a predawn sky over India's spaceport on Sriharikota Island, a piece of land on the country's eastern coastline. We are going to have GSAT, PSLV missions.

The IRNSS-1I satellite is scheduled to blast off from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota at 4 am on April 12.

Live telecast of the new satellite will be done on Doordarshan, and webcast will be available on ISRO website on Thursday, from 3:30 hours (IST) onwards.

Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is all set to gear up for a launch to boost its Navic fleet.

IRNSS is an independent regional navigation satellite system created to provide position information in the Indian region and 1,500 km around the Indian mainland. The first, IRNSS-1H could not be put in space because of its failure a year ago after the heat shield covering the satellite failed to separate. This was a failure as the rocket's heat shield did not separate three minutes after lift-off and the satellite remained housed inside the heat shield.

The navigation payload of IRNSS-1I transmits signals for the determination of position, velocity and time and operated in the L5-band and S-band. "Currently, GSAT-6A is moving in the geo transfer orbit at perigee of around 26,000km and apogee of about 33,000km".

"Engineers were working 24X7 and had been able to locate the satellite". The Times of India reported Tuesday that ISRO continues to track the satellite in orbit, suggesting GSAT 6A remains intact.

ISRO's Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) went to space from Sri Harikota, Andhra Pradesh at 4.04 am on Thursday.

On the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) being critical of NavIC still not being fully operational, after more than 10 years of its launch, he said with the launch of IRNSS-1I, the system was now put in place and the applications would have to be rolled out. "The baby has been delivered, and it's unfolded its solar arrays".

In the coming days, orbit manoeuvres will be performed from MCF to position the satellite at 55 deg East longitude in the planned Geosynchronous Orbit with an inclination of 29 deg to the equator.

Just like other IRNSS predecessors, IRNSS-1I also carries two types of payloads - navigation payload and ranging payload. These clocks had been made by a leading Swiss firm, Spectratime, which provides timekeeping devices to navigation satellites the world over, including China's Compass constellation.
