CMS-01 is India’s 42nd communications satellite. It will cover Andaman Nicobar and Lakshadweep in addition to the land area of ​​India. This is also ISRO’s last mission this year. The satellite will last seven years.

This is PSLV’s 22nd flight in the 44 m4 four-stage PSLV-C50 ‘XL’ configuration. The PSLV is a four stage / engine rocket in general configuration. The choice of rocket to be used for a mission depends on the weight of the satellite and the orbit where the satellite is to be launched.

20 minutes after launch, PSLV-C50 launched the satellite. CMS-01 will convert GSET-12 into orbit. On July 11, 2011, 1,410 kg GSET-12 was launched. He was eight years old.

After the launch, ISRO Chairman Shivan said the satellite was working very well. It will be placed in a fixed place in the next 4 days. Our teams have worked best and safely despite Corona.
