ISRO's Next Generation Communication Satellite, GSAT-11 is all set for launch. The base from which it is launched is fully prepared. Our Indian officials are all stationed at the base, i.e., The Guiana Space Centre, French Guiana, South America.


Weighing about 5,854 kgs, i.e. 5.8 tonnes, GSAT-11 is the heaviest satellite made by the ISRO. The satellite will be launched onboard by Ariane-5 Launch vehicle, due to its heftiness. First initial placement of the satellite would be in the 'Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit' later pushed using Liquid Apogee Motor to 'Geostationary Orbit'.

This satellite will be the predecessor of a series of follow up communication satellites. Its location will be set in such a way that it will be able to study the whole of Indian Mainland and Islands. It uses an advanced technology of Multi-spot beam antenna, to cover a majority of the area.


The success of the mission will benefit the data services, broadband services and also provides for a solid platform for communication. Orbitally located at 74 degrees East, with a Throughput Data Rate of 16 GB per second and a mission life of 15 years, this satellite has got much to offer.

Satellite's Use

Data services to be accessed with top speeds. A push of 16gbps will be achieved after its launch. This would help increase the connectivity and response even better in the Indian mainland and its nearby islands. Getting a proper signal strength in an Island is a big task.


Prior to this, there were two such satellites launched. Namely, GSAT-29 (November 14) and GSAT-19 (June 2017) and other similar ones to follow suit. The new multi-spot beam tech will be able to cover all the minimal spots of the land.

Better connectivity in rural areas, better management in excess city usage, and newly available to various remote areas is the main goal. Facilitating to better bandwidth for easy access of e-Governance in various untouched areas.


Long wait

ISRO Chairman K. Sivan, the project director and scores of engineers, are in Kourou for the big day. They have already arrived at the place 30 days prior and were prepping all month long.

A big push to all the connectivity schemes and programs like Digital India, BharathNet made especially for rural e-governance, even for the commercial and public sector VSAT Net service providers.
