IRNSS-1I Orbit raised further

Now reports are coming in that the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has successfully carried out the fourth and final orbit raising operations of navigation satellite, IRNSS-1I, the space agency has said. A geosynchronous orbit is when the satellite is in an nearly stationary position with relation to a point on earth. 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 1,500 km around the Indian mainland.

Orbit manoeuvres are being performed from ISRO's Master Control Facility (MCF) at Hassan, Karnataka to position the satellite at 55° East longitude in the planned Geosynchronous Orbit with an inclination of 29° to the equator.

The Article from IRNSS-1I: 8th Navigation Satellite. It was the 43rd flight of ISRO's workhorse launcher Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle. IRNSS-1H launched on 31 August 2017 was expected to replace IRNSS-1A, the first of the seven constellation satellites, which was rendered ineffective after its three rubidium atomic clocks failed. Sivan also said that they are working on launching GSAT - 29 with GSLC Mk III D-2 into the orbit, to ensure faster data communication. Following that ISRO carried out four orbit raising operations on April 13 (first and second), April 14 (third operation) and April 15.

6A, meant for military communications, had been located, the ground stations would re-establish the link with the satellite soon, Dr. Sivan said. Talking about GSAT - 6A, he said that disconnection of communication with satellites for a short time is not uncommon.
