ISRO'S GSAT 6A Satellite Launched- Why It is Important For India ?

ISRO launched their GSAT 6A satellite on Thursday from Sriharikota.

The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) will dispatch the GSAT 6A satellite on Thursday at 4.56 p.m. from Sriharikota. This is a step forward for ISRO in its indigenous correspondence satellites programme.Using its substantial rocket Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV-F08), in a duplicate book style. The GSLV-MKII rocket slung the satellite in a geosynchronous transfer circle (GTO) from where it would be taken up to its last geostationary circle by three orbits raising manoeuvres. ISRO's scientists at the mission control focus were visibly upbeat, slapping each other's backs and embracing each other once the rocket launched out the satellite into the expected circle. 

ISRO's GSAT 6A Satellite

PM Narendra Modi on Thursday saluted ISRO group on the successful dispatch of GSAT-6A satellite saying it will give new possibilities to versatile applications. "Congratulations to ISRO and different stakeholders on the successful dispatch of GSLV-F08 with an indigenous cryogenic stage. GSAT-6A, a correspondence satellite, will give new possibilities to versatile applications. Pleased with ISRO for taking the country towards new heights and a brighter future," he said. 

Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) Chairman K. Sivan said, "This is the sixth successful dispatch of GSLV with an indigenous cryogenic engine. The GSAT-6A satellite was put in its designated circle precisely. The GSAT-6A will supplement GSAT-6 launched prior. The two satellites will give a stage to cutting-edge technologies for point-to-point correspondence." 

He said the GSLV rocket had real improvements to upgrade its execution. The acceptance of high-thrust Vikas engine enhances the execution limit of the second stage by around six for each penny. 

Sivan said the rocket has been fitted with electromechanical actuation system in the place of electro-water powered actuation system, including that the electromechanical actuation system was made with ISRO created space review lithium-particle (Li-Ion) cells. Precisely at 4:56 pm IST, the GSLV rocket ascended into the sky from the second platform here at Satish Dhawan Space Center and the 49.1-meter tall rocket, weighing 415.6 ton, slung the two-ton satellite into the expected circle 17.46 minutes into its flight. 

The purpose of the satellite is to give versatile correspondence applications in S-band in five spot beams and C-band in one shaft amid its 10-year lifespan. ISRO said that the GSAT-6A was similar to the GSAT-6 put into space in 2015. The GSLV is a three stage/engine rocket. The centre of the first stage is let go with solid fuel while the four strap-on motors with liquid fuel. The second stage is the liquid fuel-propelled and the third is the cryogenic engine. 

As indicated by ISRO, two improvements - enlistment of Vikas engine and electromechanical actuation system - have been made in the rocket's second stage this time around. One of the significant rocket engines is the cryogenic engine, designed and created by ISRO, and more productive than the other two variants as it provides more thrust for each kilogram of force consumed. 

With this successful dispatch, India established the execution of its GSLV-MkII rocket which in future may bring orders from outsiders for propelling their satellites. India puts into space remote satellites for a charge using its lighter rocket - the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) as their weight is very little. 

The GSAT 6A has been in the news previously, yet for the Antrix-Devas bargain. Under the arrangement, Antrix, ISRO's business arm, was to give 70 MHz of the scarce S-Band wavelength to Devas for its computerized sight and sound services. This was to be finished by leasing 90 for each penny of the transponders in satellites GSAT-6 and GSAT-6A that are proposed to be launched by ISRO. Devas, thusly, was to pay Antrix an aggregate of $300 million more than 12 years. 

The understanding was signed on January 28, 2005. Consequently, the Department of Space (DoS) got the Cabinet endorsement for the working of GSAT-6 at a cost of ₹269 crore and GSAT-6A at a cost of ₹147 crore under the Commission's delegated powers.The bargain was revoked in 2011 when irregularities were found in the monetary administration. 

Revenue for propelling satellites depends on the weight of the satellite - higher the weight, higher will be the revenue. As indicated by the latest Economic Survey, remote trade earnings of India from the fare of satellite dispatch services increased detectably in 2015-16 and 2016-17 to Rs. 394 crore and Rs. 275 crore from Rs. 149 crore in 2014-15.
