  In this blog,we would talk about the India's heaviest communication satellite that is GSAT-11,which will be launched on December 5, says ISRO. In one of our previous blogs,we discussed about the GSAT-29 satellite, so if you wish to gain knowledge about the GSAT-29 satellite, you can check our previous article titled,'GSAT-29 satellite pushed higher into orbit'.
               So,coming back to our present topic,let's start discussing about GSAT-11 satellite which is the heaviest communication satellite in India. The weight is 5,854 kg according to ISRO. And,this satellite will be put into orbit by Ariane-5 rocket of Arianespace from French Guiana on December 5.

  Description of GSAT-11......


   As already said,the satellite is the heaviest communication satellite weighing 5,854 kg has the mission life of 15 years. This will have 32 user beams known as Ku Band and eight hub beams,known as Ka Band. It will be initially placed in the Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit and will subsequently be raised to geostationary orbit by firing the satellite's on-board motor.

  Aim of GSAT-11....


  GSAT-11 satellite will be used for satisfying increased data demands with high data rates over region using spot beams. The main purpose is to provide broadband service across the whole country. This satellite will help BharatNet connecting gram panchayat for e-governance and digital platforms, the enterprise networks and consumer broadband application.

Actually, GSAT-11 was planned to launch in Mid-May. The satellite had reached Arianespace's rocket port in March 2018. But, ISRO detected breakdown of power system in satellite due to lost communication link. But,expert said to this, it may also be due to short circuiting or arching result in what is they call in space terminology that is 'Loss of Lock' of 'Loss of contact with ground'.
