The track of India's latest communications satellite GSAT-29 succeeded by successfully firing the motor for 4,875 seconds on Thursday, the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) said.
The first task of raising the planned three orbits was successfully carried out by launching a liquid-powered motor mounted on a satellite.
The motor was fired at 8.34 a.m. for 1 hour and 35 minutes.
The northeastern states of the GSAT-29 and Digital India programs linking Jammu and Kashmir entered orbit on Wednesday with the latest rocket geostationary satellite launcher (GSLV-Mk III / D2) in India.
According to ISRO, the origin x changed from 35,897 km x 189 km to 35,745 km x 7,542 km after the orbit rises.
Apogee refers to the furthest point on Earth, and its proximity is the closet point to Earth for satellites in orbit.
ISRO chairman K.Sivan said he would raise the satellite from a geostationary orbit (GTO) to a geostationary orbit (GSO) by raising three orbits.
With a lifespan of 10 years, GSAT-29 is a multi-beam satellite with Ka / Ku band high efficiency communication transponder. Especially to meet your communication needs at remote locations.
Several new technologies, such as Q / V-band payloads and data transmission over fiber-optic links, will help realize future advanced satellites, Sistan added.
Q / V-band payloads over optical communication links will be used for satellite and satellite communications. Das, Director of ISRO Space Applications Center. The frequency is still not crowded.
The satellite also has a 55 – meter high – resolution camera that will be fixed on the meteorological satellite when the satellite starts to operate, Sistan said.
High-speed processing satellites such as GSAT-19, GSAT-29, GSAT-11 and GSAT-20 will provide the high-speed Internet required for the success of the Digital India program, he added.
