Sriharikota: After the Indian Space Research Organisation’s (ISRO) 31 satellites successfully soared into the skies, the space agency on Thursday announced to launch GSAT 11, the heaviest satellite made by India on December 5 at 2:08 am from Guiana Space Centre located in France.
According to Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), the GSAT-11 weighing 5,854 kg is the heaviest satellite built by it. Ariane-5 launch vehicle from French Guyana.
The satellite will be initially placed in Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit and later fired on the on-board motor of the satellite, it will be extended to the geological class.
According to ISRO, GSAT-11 is the forerunner in a series of advanced communications satellites, which includes multi-location beam antenna covers on Indian mainland and islands.
With mission life of 15 years, there will be a 32 user beam (band of band) and eight hub beam (band of band) and throughput data rate of 16 GBps.
GSAT-11 will play an important role in providing broadband services across the country, it will also provide a new platform. The Indian Space Agency said that GSAT-11 will be used to meet the demand for high data rates.

In April 2018, the ISRO was missed for more tests to safely test the GSAT-11 rocket port Arianes space in French Guyana.
ISRO chairman IS Shivan said, “We are bringing GSAT-11 satellites back to some tests.”
GSAT-11 plan was to launch mid-May. Satellite reached the rocket harbor of Arianes Space in March 2018.
ISRO move to GSAT -11 call back for further tests and be sure to double about your performance recently launched may damage the GSAT-6A satellite, to put it into orbit on March 29 just after.
ISRO doubts the failure of the power system in the satellite.
“Satellites are powered by solar panels that charge onboard batteries. When the satellite loads on the rocket, the battery is fully charged.
A space expert told IANS, “Even if there is a problem in the solar panel, then the power of the battery should be kicked off. Here the entire power system of the satellite is unsuccessful.”
According to experts, space terminology lock whatever the loss of contact with Los’ or ground stations is known, it could not fail electrical system due to short-circuiting or Arsing results.
Space has been closed at ground stations for satellite tracking and other purposes.
On March 29, Indian rocket Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV) reduced GSAT-6A in its desired class. From there, the satellite was to be fired on its onboard motors in its orbital slot.
On March 30, for the first 36 minutes, onboard motors were successfully operated to increase the first grade.
Operation of the second class enhancement of GSAT-6A satellite was also successful as on March 31, its motors were fired for about 53 minutes.
