The rocket geosynchronous satellite launch vehicle (GSLV) carrying communication satellite GSAT-5P exploded mid-air just moments after it took off from the Sriharikota rocket launch center.
The Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV) exploded in the first stage of flight, leaving a trail of smoke and fire behind it.
Indian Space Research The Indian Space Research Organisation's (ISRO) Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle's new upper stage, fuelled by liquid hydrogen and oxygen, has failed on its first flight.
However, ISRO decided to postpone the launch of its geosynchronous satellite launch vehicle after it detected a leak in one of the valves of its Russian-made cryogenic engine.
The geosynchronous satellite, which was launched by Sea Launch in January this year, underwent a rigorous technical testing on all its Ground, Space and other related systems to ensure high service quality.
A significant advantage of the geosynchronous satellite is that directional antennas on the Earth need not be steered to maintain pointing toward the satellite.
ISRO also is developing a Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV) with a payload rating of 2,500 kg.
EMC witnessed Symmetrix Remote Data Facility (SRDF) achieving very high bandwidth utilization consistently from distances of hundreds of miles (with high bit error rates on dirty lines) to as far as geosynchronous satellite distances.
A geosynchronous satellite that hovers over the Pacific still provides observations at 12 [micro]m, but the one that now watches over most of North America uses the new set of wavelengths, says Ellrod.
The Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV-D1), using cryogenic technology for the first time, lifted off from the Sriharikota High Altitude Range at 3:43 p.
The spacecraft augments current geosynchronous satellite communications, having an apogee of 12,050 kilometers in the high latitudes to deliver near, although not continuous, global communications on-the-move (COTM) to the battlefield and provide access to mountainous regions that have previously proved problematic.
Summary: New Delhi [India], June 14 (ANI): Following the successful launch of the Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle Mk-III (GSLV Mk-III), the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is slated to launch a kerosene-based semi-cryogenic engine, projected to be functional for flight tests by 2021.
