India Launched another milestone-GSAT-29
India launched GSAT-29 Communication Satellite on November 14, 2018.
Introduction:- India GSAT-29 satellite is launched on November 14, 2018 by the Second developmental flight of Geosynchronous Satellite launch vehicle MKIIID2 launched from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre, Shriharikota, Andhra Pradesh.
About GSAT-29:- GSAT-29 is a multiband, multi-beam communication satellite. It intended to serve as a platform for many other new and critical technologies GSAT-29 weight-3423kg.
It carried Ku band Ka band payloads are configured to assist the communication requirements of users and remote areas users especially Jammu and Kashmir and North-Eastern states of India.
The Q/V-Band payloads of the GSAT on board will demonstrate the future or next generation of High throughput satellite (HTS) system technologies.
Geo High Resolution Camera will capture high resolution imaging and optical communication payload will demonstrate data transmission at a very high rate through optical communication link.
Ku band:- The Ku band is the portion of spectrum in the microwave range of frequencies from 12 to 18 GHz. Ku bank is primary used for satellite Communication.
Ka band:- Ka band frequency range in 26-40-GHz used in Satellite Communication also use in military information and vehicle speed detection.
GSLV MK II D2:- GSLV MK-III D2 or GSLV Mark III D2 is the second development flight of GSLVMK III. GSLV MKIII is a three-stage heavy lift launch vehicle developed by the ISRO. GSLV MK III D2 lifted from the launch pad of Satish Dhawan Space Centre Shriharikota and carried 3223kg GSAT-29.
GSLV MK III injected the GSAT satellite into the geosynchronous transfer orbit (GTO)
