ISRO Planned Missions for Year 2017

ISRO Planned Missions

ISRO Planned Missions - ISRO has planned two missions in first quarter of 2017. Those are GSAT-19 and GSAT-9. GSAT-19 satellite will carry GSLV-Mk III-D1. It willl  be launched from SDSC SHAR, Sriharikota, India. GSAT-9 also planned to launch from SDSC SHAR only.

ISRO Planned Missions:


ISRO Planned Missions GSAT series of GAST-19E communication satellite is planned as the payload for the primary developmental flight of the indigenous GSLV-Mk III-D1 Launcher. The satellite is deliberate to hold Ka and Ku band payload along with a Geostationary Radiation Spectrometer (GRASP) payload to monitor and look at the character of the charged particles which have an effect on of area radiation on spacecraft and digital additives. GSAT-19 satellites work as superior spacecraft technologies such as bus subsystem experiments in electrical propulsion system, indigenous Li ion battery, indigenous Bus bars for power distribution. Launching vehicle is called “Geo Synchronous launch vehicle Mark III D1 (GSLV-Mk III-D1)”. This task duration is about 15 years, launch mass is 3200 kg.

ISRO Planned Missions: GAST-19E  satellite is scheduled to be launched 20th April 2017 by GSLV-Mk III-D1 Launcher from SDSC SHAR, Sriharikota. 


GSAT-9 satellite is configured to enhance the growing want of Ku band transponders, incorporates 12 Ku-Band Transponders. The spacecraft employs the standard I-2K shape with the power managing functionality of round 3000 W, with a boost off mass of 2195 kg. Its equipment is designed for a mission life of more than 12 years. GSAT-9 launching vehicle is GSLV-F09. The application is GAGAN navigation payload, a nearby GPS navigational machine advanced by way of India on the way to provide GPS offerings to the safety forces and air site visitors manipulate groups.

GAGAN (GPS aided GEO Augmented Navigation) is a local GPS navigational device advanced by Indian scientists. This may be capable of helping pilots to navigate within the Indian airspace in a range with an accuracy of 3 meters. This will be additionally helpful for landing planes in difficult weather and terrains like Mangalore and Leh airports.
