CMS-01 is India’s 42nd communications satellite. It will work for seven years.
The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) on Thursday launched the Communication Satellite (CMS-01) from the Satish Dhawan Space Center in Sriharikota. The launch was made by a PSLV-C50 rocket at 3.41pm. This is the second launch of a satellite in the Corona era.
The PSLV-C50 launched the satellite 20 minutes after launch
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.
Earlier the Earth observation satellite was launched
Earlier, ISRO had launched the Earth Observation Satellite-1 (EOS-1) from the Satish Dhawan Space Center. It is a radar imaging satellite. Along with the country’s EOS-1, 9 foreign satellites were also sent by PSLV-C49 rocket.
