INSAT-1C

The INSAT-1C satellite was launched on 22 July 1988 from Kourou for location at 93.5°E to bring the INSAT system up to full capacity. Half of the 12 C-band transponders and its two S-band transponders were lost when a power system failure knocked out one of the two buses, but the meteorological earth images and its data collection systems were both fully operational.
