The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) will launch the GSLV F 11 carrying country’s 2,250 newest military communications satellite GSAT-7A, from the second launch pad of Satish Dhawan Space Centre Sriharikota on Wednesday at 4.10 pm.

GSAT 7A is a geostationary communication satellite weighing 2250 kilogram and will provide communication services in Ku Band over the Indian region.

It will be placed by the rocket into a geosynchronous transfer orbit (GTO) at 170 km x 35,000 km. It will then perform orbital manoeuvres for a few days to raise itself to a geostationary orbit (GEO), which will be its final orbiting position at 35,786 km.

GSLV F 11 with indigenous cryogenic upper stage has a total of three stages before reaching the destined orbit using the onboard propulsion system.

Though the first stage will take place within 20 minutes of the lift-off, it might take one or two days after separation from the launcher to reach its final orbital stage.

The mission life of the GSAT-7A, built by the Indian Space Research Organisation, is eight years. GSAT-7A will provide communication services in Ku Band over the Indian region and vital data for hi-tech communication in strategic fields.

GSAT-7A will be operated primarily by the IAF, while 30 per cent of its capacity will be shared by the Army. It is the country’s second dedicated defence satellite after the GSAT-7.

Today's launch of GSAT-7A is the seventh and the last in the year (2018) from Sriharikota, located around 100 km from Chennai, this year. The launch of Chandrayaan-2 and the PSLV-C44 remote-sensing satellite launch are among the seven missions lined up for 2019.
