The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is going to launch a military communication satellite GSAT-7A into the space today at 4:10 pm from Sriharikota. The launcher vehicle of GSAT-7A is GSLV-F11.
The communication satellite has a whole lot of facilities which would add wings to Indian Air Force. It will connect all IAF assets like planes, drones, ground stations, and airborne early warning control platforms by creating a centralized network.
GSLV-F11 will inject GSAT-7A into a Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit (GTO). It takes few days after detaching from the launcher to be placed in its final Geostationary Orbit (GEO), ISRO said.
