India successfully places communication satellite GSAT-6 in orbit

(Last Updated On: 28/08/2015)

The Indian Space Research Organization ISRO on Thursday successfully launched the Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle GSLV-D6 and injected the communication satellite GSAT-6 into its intended transfer orbit. The all-Indian version of the GSLV rocket had the indigenously made Cryogenic Upper Stage, marking India’s success in mastering the highly complex technology. The launch vehicle lifted off at 16:52 hours from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre, Sriharikotta, some 90 km north of Chennai on the East Coast.

It injected the satellite carrying S-Band transponders meant for strategic purposes within 17 minutes and four seconds in the intended geosynchronous transfer orbit. The mission life of the satellite GSAT-6 weighing 2117 kg is nine years. The current version of the GSLV is capable of launching satellites weighing up to two tonnes into geostationary orbits. This is the second continuous successful GSLV mission using India’s own cryogenic engine, out of the three development flights held so far using it.

The Indian space agency (ISRO) has made a remarkable achievement today with the successful flight of the GSLV-D6 using its own cryogenic upper stage, placing its communication satellite GSAT-6 in the intended oval-shaped transfer orbit with text-book precision. Through orbit raising manoeuvres, it will be put into its ultimate geostationary orbit of 36000 kilometer height later.

Today’s success validates India’s expertise in mastering the complex cryogenic technology which has so far been in the exclusive domain of just a few countries. Today’s successful GSLV mission takes India many steps ahead in realizing its dream of attaining self sufficiency in all kinds of satellite launches, including the heavier ones.
