Arianespace will launch an Indian Communication Satellite

Two communication satellites from Malaysia and India will be launched into geostationary orbit by the European space agency Arianespace. The Ariane-5 rocket will launch the two satellites, which together weigh more than 10,000 kilograms, from the spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana.

About the Communication Satellite:

  • The commercial arm of ISRO, New Space India Limited (NSIL), created the Indian satellite GSAT-24 for Tata Sky, a television service provider. The GSAT-24 is a 24-Ku band communication satellite with Pan-India coverage that weighs over 4,000 kilograms and can accommodate DTH application requirements.
  • The satellite is set up to have a 15-year mission life.
  • Stéphane Isral, CEO of Arianespace, expressed his enthusiasm for working with ISRO once more in an official statement following the foundation of NSIL in 2019.
