Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) will be launching rocket GSLV-F05 today at 4.10 pm that will carry an advanced weather satellite ‘INSAT-3DR’. The launch is going to take place from the second launch pad of the Satish Dhawan Space Centre at Sriharikota.

This is the first time an indigenous cryogenic engine will be used on an operational GSLV flight.

INSAT-3DR will be put into a geo-transfer orbit by the rocket initially during the lift off and then it will be taken to its geosynchronous orbit using its own propulsion systems.

The satellite equipped with modern instruments will be used to study weather patterns and to help in surface-level search and rescue operation.

In this mission, the indigenously developed Cryogenic Upper Stage is being carried on-board the launch vehicle for the fourth time. It is a transition from test phase to operational phase.

The launch of the GSLV-F05 will be the tenth flight of India’s Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle, designed to inject 2 to 2.5 ton class of satellites in geostationary orbits.


The Logical Indian congratulates ISRO for achieving this feat. It will decrease our dependency on foreign agency for weather related reports.
