ISRO Loss Of Contact With The GSAT-6A: ISRO confirms the loss of contact with the GSAT-6A, after India’s most significant communications satellite which stops sending the data
ISRO Loss Of Contact With The GSAT-6A
Hello, Everyone Today I am going to share some exciting facts on the ISRO confirms the loss of contact with the GSAT-6A, after India’s most important communications satellite which stops sending the data.
Launching on the month of 29th March, GSAT-6A is to be India’s largest communications satellite yet, carrying a 6-meter antenna for enabling the more efficient ground communication.
The satellite itself is successfully placing into a geosynchronous orbit some distance of 36,000 km from the Earth. The Liquid Apogee Motor is responsible for the final stages of this maneuver which is working correctly and on schedule. However, 4 minutes after an orbit-raising procedure that is the second of three such plans at the time of 10.51 am on Saturday; the satellite is stopping to sending data.
The Times of India is claiming to have to receive the confirmation from several unnamed sources that the likely cause of the lack of communication is a power system failure.
The ISRO has not issued an official statement to that effect and has only stated that “After the successful long duration on the firings, when the satellite is on course to the normal operating configuration for the third and the final firing, which is scheduling for April 1st, 2018. The communication from the satellite is a loss.” They are currently trying to re-establish the contact.
The GSAT-6A is a “high-power S-band communication satellite” with a planning mission time of at least ten years. The 6-meter antenna is meant to enable the ground communication that is handheld ground terminals, a feature that is not possible with the previous satellites because their smaller antennas are required larger receiving stations on the ground.
So, these are the points to describing on the ISRO confirms the loss of contact with the GSAT-6A, after India’s most important communications satellite which stops sending the data.
