ISRO will Launch Backup navigation satellite on 31st August 2017 from Sriharikota center– Today Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) announced to launch back-up navigation satellite, IRNSS-1H, from the Sriharikota launch center 31st August 2017.
A report says the spacecraft weighing over 1400 kg and it is similar to the other seven satellite of its category that is already in orbit. Under Indian regional navigation satellite system (IRNSS) project 4 satellite established in Geosynchronous orbital and 3 satellite were established in the geostationary orbital. IRNSS-1G was last satellite of this project which was launched by PALV C-33 rocket in April 2016. IRNSS-1H is a backup navigation satellite and it will be put in a geostationary orbit. It also lifted by ISRO’s light-lifting PSLV (Polar satellite launch vehicle) rocket.
The Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System renamed as Navigation with Indian Constellation or NavIC. It would work similar to what the American GPS does on a global scale. It will provide near-exact ground positions and locations of objects or people. Various Indian user agencies and individuals get benefited. It works for land, sea or in air
For the first time, ISRO involved a consortium of six small and medium industries while building and testing of the IRNSS-1H satellite. The consortium will play an important role in the next backup satellite, IRNSS-1I.
Indian Space Research Organization
The Indian Space Research Organization is the space office of the Government of India headquartered in the city of Bengaluru. Its vision is to “saddle space innovation for national improvement while seeking after space science looks into and planetary investigation.
Shaped in 1969, ISRO superseded the recent Indian National Committee for Space Research (INCOSPAR) set up in 1962 by the endeavors of autonomous India’s initially Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, and his nearby assistant and researcher Vikram Sarabhai. The foundation of ISRO in this manner systematized space exercises in India. It is overseen by the Department of Space, which reports to the Prime Minister of The Republic of India.
ISRO manufactured India’s initially satellite, Aryabhata, which was propelled by the Soviet Union on 19 April 1975. It was named after the Mathematician Aryabhata. In 1980, Rohini turned into the principal satellite to be set in the circle by an Indian-made dispatch vehicle, SLV-3. ISRO along these lines created two different rockets: the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) for propelling satellites into polar circles and the Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV) for putting satellites into geostationary circles. These rockets have propelled various correspondences satellites and earth perception satellites. Satellite route frameworks like GAGAN and IRNSS have been sent. In January 2014, ISRO effectively utilized an indigenous cryogenic motor in a GSLV-D5 dispatch of the GSAT-14.
ISRO sent one lunar orbiter, Chandrayaan-1, on 22 October 2008 and one Mars orbiter, Mars Orbiter Mission, which effectively entered Mars circle on 24 September 2014, making India the primary country to prevail on its initially endeavor, and ISRO the fourth space office on the planet and in addition the principal space organization in Asia to effectively achieve Mars circle. On 18 June 2016 ISRO effectively set a record with a dispatch of 20 satellites in a solitary payload, one being a satellite from Google. On 15 February 2017, ISRO propelled 104 satellites in a solitary rocket (PSLV-C37) and made a world record. ISRO propelled its heaviest rocket, Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle-Mark III (GSLV-Mk III), on 5 June 2017 and put a correspondences satellite GSAT-19 in the circle. With this dispatch, ISRO wound up noticeably fit for propelling 4-ton overwhelming satellites.
Feasible arrangements incorporate the advancement of ULV, improvement of a reusable dispatch vehicle, human spaceflight, controlled delicate lunar landing, interplanetary tests, and a solar energy shuttle mission.
