The ISRO has launched its home-made communications satellites GSAT-6A in Sri Harikota on Thursday, media reports said. GSAT 6A is the fifth successful launch of a GSLV Mk.2 rocket with an Indian-built cryogenic upper stage engine.
ISRO said that GSAT-6A, similar to GSAT-6 is a high power S-band communication satellite based on the I-2K satellite bus.
He said the satellite was injected into geosynchronous transfer orbit at the desired level precisely.
Following orbit raising manoeuvres using the onboard propulsion system, the satellite will be placed at the geostationary orbit at the height of 36,000 km.
