  • The IRNSS-1I navigation satellite takes off at Sriharikota

The four stage/engine PSLV-XL stands 44.4 metres tall and weighs 321 ton at the lift-off stage. Keeping up with the general trend, this was the 41st successful mission of the 43 for PSLV.

The IRNSS-1I Satellite will be blasted off from First Launch Pad (FLP) of SDSC SHAR, Sriharikota.

Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) Chairman K Sivan described the mission as a success and congratulated the scientists. Indian Standard Time on Thursday. IRNSS-1L is the 9th satellite in the navigation satellite by Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System (IRNSS).

As aforementioned, this is the 9th launch in the IRNSS fleet, however, it is the 8th satellite in the constellation after its newly launched IRNSS-1H back in August developed problems and finally, it resulted in losing it after all.

On that mission, the PSLV's payload fairing failed to jettison from the rocket as programmed. A later inquiry revealed that the heat shield of the rocket failed to open and let out the spacecraft.




Sivan said over the next eight months, ISRO has planned nine launch missions including the moon mission towards the end of the year. This was the second attempt of ISRO for replacing the satellite IRNSS-1A. IRNSS-1I also carries Corner Cube Retro Reflectors for laser ranging. It will carry the three-tonne-plus GSAT-29 communication satellite to space. For this satellite, AIT was done by a group of engineers from private firms, with ample handholding by ISRO, which is hoping to completely delegate AIT to private companies in the near future. The Times of India reported Tuesday that ISRO continues to track the satellite in orbit, suggesting GSAT 6A remains intact. "I am really grateful to the entire ISRO family for having worked this hard and making IRNSS-1I a success", Sivan said. "The baby has been delivered, and it's unfolded its solar arrays".

The navigation satellite IRNSS-1I will replace IRNSS-1A, which is India's first navigation satellite. The seven satellites are part of the NavIC navigation satellite constellation.

NavIC, also known as Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System (IRNSS), is an independent regional navigation satellite system created to provide position information in the Indian region and 1500 km around the Indian mainland. It is a constellation of seven satellites which helps to provide accurate positioning information to users in India and in regions extending up to 1,500 km from its boundary.

IRNSS-1I is the eighth navigation satellite to join the IRNSS space segment.

IRNSS is meant to be used for both civilian and military purposes. Then subsequently, the communication will be established and we will go ahead.
