India’s heaviest satellite GSAT-11 launched successfully
Weighing about 5,854 kg, the GSAT-11 is the cheaviest satellite built by ISRO. It is a next generation "high throughput" communication satellite configured around ISRO's I-6K Bus, and has a designed lifetime of more than 15 years.
India’s heaviest satellite GSAT-11, that would boost broadband services in the country, was successfully launched by an Arianespace rocket from the French Guiana in the early hours of Wednesday, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) said.
Blasting off from the Ariane Launch Complex at Kourou, a French territory located along the northeastern coast of South America at 02:07am IST, the Ariane-5 vehicle injected GSAT-11 into the orbit in a flawless flight lasting about 33 minutes. “ISRO’s heaviest and most-advanced high throughput communication satellite GSAT-11 was successfully launched from the Spaceport in French Guiana during the early hours today,” the Indian space agency said.
