ISRO to launch new navigation satellite IRNSS-1H today

ISRO will launch the PSLV-C39 IRNSS-1H spacecraft at 7pm today.

PSLV had also become a popular choice for small satellite developers, who took advantage of frequent launches to sun-synchronous orbits and excess capacity on those missions to fly as secondary payloads.

He said ISRO is getting into the details of what has happened. So far, the agency has had 150 successful missions beginning with the Aryabhatta in 1975. The launch was dubbed as a failure due to problems in the fourth stage.

The 1.4-tonne satellite was launched aboard the PSLV-C39 rocket from the state-run Indian Space Research Organisation's (ISRO) spaceport at Sriharikota off the Bay of Bengal in Andhra Pradesh, about 80 km northeast of Chennai at 7:00 pm.

However, the first navigational satellite, IRNSS-1A was launched in 2013, and three atomic clocks of this satellite has stopped working.

The launch vehicle PSLV-C39 used the "XL" version of PSLV equipped with six strap-ons, each carrying 12 tons of propellant. IRNSS 1H comes with more flexibility in service and it is compatible with the satellites, which are in orbit.

Agent says LB Ahmad Brooks to finalize deal with Packers
The addition of Brooks should also allow the Packers to keep Biegel on the PUP list to start the regular season. He can play the outside linebacker, he can play the elephant.

IRNSS-1H was supposed to the backup satellite for the first satellite in the constellation, IRNSS-1A, launched back in 2014, whose onboard clocks had started malfunctioning. Now, this is a navigation satellite mainly aimed at providing position, navigation or for tracking the position of things attached to a receiver.

The ranging payload of IRNSS-1H consists of a C-band transponder, which facilitates accurate determination of the range of the satellite.

The IRNSS-1H, was built by a consortium led by Alpha Design Technologies, a defence equipment supplier from Bengaluru, over eight months.

The system will be useful for any kind of navigation apps, taxi aggregator apps, location based operations like finding a hospital or shop, or even for the fishermen who will be able to access information on high-yield areas and the kind of weather to expect.

These services are provided through a software application on a smart phone. It provides two types of services - standard positioning service and restricted service. According to ISRO officials, the total cost of all the seven satellites was Rs 1,420 crore.
