I've seen the highest launch azimuth for the PSLV is 140°. On polar launches, it flies a dogleg trajectory.
Is this also to be expected for the GSLV-III with OneWeb?

OneWeb satellites are at 86.4° inclination. The launch azimuth is 176.3°, so it looks like it will do a dog-log.

Exciting news from India as we confirm the encapsulation of our 36 satellites ahead of #OneWebLaunch14. The satellites have now travelled to be attached to the LVM3 rocket ahead of launch later this month.

Thanks again to our team, as well as @isro, @NSIL_India and @Arianespace!

Hello everyone! I have got 2 questions :

1) how much is the payload for next Sunday one web satellites launch ? Is it something like 2 or 3 tonnes ? Or is it more ?

2) I saw the picture of GSLV being moved to the launch pad. In the picture, I saw the second assembly vehicle building in the background (pink color type of building) is it now fully operational ?

Thanks,

Gunter's Space Page gives 147 kg per sat, which means 5,292 kg for sats themselves, excluding adaptator and other related items.

The next orbital launch from Asia will probably be the first launch of 36 OneWeb satellites after the breakup with Russia, by India's GSLV Mark III on October 22 at 18:37UTC, as China is currently busy on a national congress.

This will be a polar orbit launch with a dogleg to avoid debris hazards on Sri Lanka..

I thought these satellites are going to be launched in a near earth orbit, not a polar orbit. 🤨

"Polar" just means a high inclination. The OneWeb orbits are polar. They are also relatively low altitude: that what "near earth orbit" means.

       I see, thanks.  I thought 'near earth' or low earth meant a geosynchronous orbit, with some degree of inclination with respect to the equator, and rotating with the equator. I was mistaken! 

 What is the height of the orbit of the OneWeb satellites?  Sorry, I missed it, if it was mentioned earlier.  Added: okay I found out it is 1200km.
