India’s telecommunication satellite GSAT-30 was successfully launched into a
Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit (GTO) on January 17, 2020 from Kourou launch base,
French Guiana by Ariane-5 VA-251.
GSAT-30 is configured on ISRO’s enhanced I-3K Bus structure to provide
communication services from Geostationary orbit in C and Ku bands. The satellite
derives its heritage from ISRO’s earlier INSAT/GSAT satellite series.
Weighing 3357 kg, GSAT-30 is to serve as replacement to INSAT-4A spacecraft
services with enhanced coverage. The satellite provides Indian mainland and
islands coverage in Ku-band and extended coverage in C-band covering Gulf
countries, a large number of Asian countries and Australia.
The designed in-orbit operational life of GSAT-30 is more than 15 years.
