Help DD to telecast live the launch of GSAT-8

#1
NEW DELHI: Doordarshan will telecast live the launch of the Indian communication satellite GSAT-8 from Kourou in French Guinea.

The satellite will be launched at 130 hours on the night of 20-21 May on board an Ariane-V rocket.


Prior to that, Doordarshan’s national channel will telecast a five-minute film on the satellite, GSAT-8 Corridor of Communication, on 20 May at 8.30 pm and again five minutes before the live telecast.


The indigenously built 3.1-tonne (3,100 kg) satellite has 24 Ku-band transponders for communication and broadcasting services, according to Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) chairman K. Radhakrishnan.

Within 30 minutes after the launch, Ariane will deploy the heavy satellite in an elliptical geo-synchronous transfer orbit (GTO) and the space agency's master control facility (MCF) at Hasan in Karnataka, about 180 km from this tech hub, will take over its command and control.

"The satellite will be gradually put in the 36,000 km geosynchronous orbit over the following three days (May 21-23) and its antenna and solar panels will be deployed. The MCF will also test and monitor the health parameters of the payloads by June 1. It will be available for DTH services from next month," Radhakrishnan said.
