India's heaviest satellite, weight 5800 kilograms

India’s heaviest satellite GSAT-11 will fly from French Guiana to the rocket of European Space Agency on Wednesday morning.
According to the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), the weight of GSAT-11 is 5,854 kilograms and this is the largest satellite ever created. These geostationary satellites will be in the orbit of 36,000 kilometers above the Earth’s surface. The satellite is so large that its solar panels are more than four meters long, which is equal to a sedan car. There will be 40 transponders in Ku-Band and Ka-band frequency in GSAT-11, which can provide high bandwidth connectivity with data transfer speed up to 14 gigabytes/second.

Why is GSAT-11 Satellite Special?
Well, known science journalist Pallava Bagla told the BBC, “GSAT-11 is special in many ways. This is the heaviest satellite ever made in India. “But what is the meaning of heavy satellite? He said, “The heavy satellite does not mean that they will do less work. Communication is meant to be huge in terms of the satellite that she is very strong and has the ability to work a long time. ” Bagla will also homologous far made satellites that carry with it the most bandwidth in the satellite. And this will facilitate internet access across India. It is also a special thing that it was sent to South America before but was called again for testing.

Why did GSAT-11 launch?
The first GSAT-11 was to be sent in March-April this year, but it was postponed after the failure of the GSAT-6A mission. The reason for the signal loss from GSAT-6A, which went off on March 29, was a disturbance in the electrical circuit. There was a possibility that this problem could be exposed to GSAT-11, so its launch was stopped. After this many tests were performed and found that all the systems are OK. Bagla said, “It will be sent to India on December 5, at two o’clock in eight minutes.” The main thing is that the rocket carrying the heavy load of ISRO can take 4 tons of GSLV-4. ISRO’s payloads of more than four tonnes are sent from European Spaceport in French Guiana.

Will you get internet speed?
Pallava Bagla said that ISRO has the capacity to send around four tonnes of Vazni Satellite, but the weight of GSAT-11 is less than six tonnes. When asked whether the time will come when you will be satellite sent so much weight from India, Bagla said, ‘You want to send out everything but when you have one big thing you have to do.’ ‘ We travel by bus but do not keep them in our house Whenever we need it, we rent it. Now ISRO own heavy does not consider satellite send but the semi-cryogenic engine will be ready when a few years later, it can happen. ” It will be that they provide Satellite Internet Speed said Bagla on Said, “Satellite speed from the Satellite is not fast as you get it from Optical Fiber.” “But this will be beneficial in case of coverage from the Satellite. Those who are remote areas, there will be benefits in reaching the Internet. There are many such places where reaching Fiber is not easy, it will be easy to access the internet. “

How will the Satellite work?
Apart from this, one more advantage is that whenever the Fiber is damaged, the Internet will not be completely shut down and it will continue through the Satellite. ISRO is also working on its ability to carry the weight of its GSLV-3 launcher. GSAT-11 is actually a high-throughput communication satellite, which aims to provide multi-spot beam coverage in the main areas of India and the surrounding areas. These satellites are so special that they use many spots beam, which increases internet speed and connectivity. The meaning of Spot Beam is from Satellite Signals, which focuses on a particular geographic area. Thin as thin as the beam, the higher the power. These satellites re-use the beam or the signal to cover the whole country. Traditional satellites like INSAT use Broad Signal Beam, which is not enough to cover the entire terrain.
