ANSWER
THE MINISTER OF STATE IN THE MINISTRY OF PERSONNEL, PG & PENSIONS AND IN THE PRIME MINISTER’S OFFICE
(DR. JITENDRA SINGH):

(a) Yes Sir, Government is planning to launch 10 Earth Observation Satellites in 2020-21, the details of which are as follows:
OCEANSAT-3, GISAT-2, RISAT-2A, HRSAT-1/2/3, CARTOSAT-3A, INSAT-3DS, RISAT-1B, OCEANSAT-3A

(b) to (e)
The funds required for these projects have been estimated as Rs. 701.5 Cr.
A target of launching up to 10 earth observation satellites has been set for the fiscal year 2020-21.
So we understand that from April 1st, 2020 to March 31, 2021 the following observation satellites are intended to be launched:
OCEANSAT-3,
GISAT-2,
RISAT-2A,
HRSAT-1/2/3,
CARTOSAT-3A,
INSAT-3DS,
RISAT-1B,
OCEANSAT-3A

Since RISAT-2BR2 and GISAT-1 are not in this list, we have to take it with care...

The missions in the above Lok Sabha transcript are for the 2020 indian fiscal year which begins on April 1st and ends on March 31st 2021. Since both RISAT-2BR2 and GISAT-1 were planned for launch in january/february of this year they would fall under the 2019 fiscal year and hence that would explain why they are not in this document.

December is written when I look at the first article. However, this was already on September 28th.

Another mission in the pipeline is INSAT-3DS, a climate satellite which will be launched in December, said Somanath.

Isro chairman S Somanath told TOI: “Aside from these, there will be specific committees looking at various missions that need to be implemented as part of the goals set by the PM.”

PSLV, GSLV Launch
He added that the space agency is targetting November-December for at least two more launches, one on its workhorse, the PSLV, and the other on the GSLV-Mk2.
“The PSLV will launch the Xposat and also have POEM (PSLV Orbital Experimental Module) carrying scientific and commercial payloads onboard. We’ll announce these features soon. The GSLV will launch the Insat-3DS satellite, which is almost ready. The vibration tests have begun today (Friday),” Somanath said.

Xposat is India’s first dedicated polarimetry mission to study various dynamics of bright astronomical X-ray sources in extreme conditions, while Insat-3DS is a weather satellite built as part of the Indian National Satellite System to provide meteorological services.

I'm not familiar with this website, so I don't know their track record.  I don't know if they have confidential sources within ISRO, and, to my recollection, none of our spaceflight experts on this forum have quoted them before.

Also, xm11, you have been a member here for some time. We always quote a source for our information.  In the case of a confidential source, then state such.  You should not need prompting to do so.

Vibration testing on the satellite?  Seems to me ISRO is several weeks from launching INSAT-3DS.

NET January 2024 per [YT video] (57:30 mark).
He said launch in December or January, so technically NET December.  However, given how these things usually play out, I agree: NET January.



It also would be "nice" to confirm the launch vehicle serial number.

It will be interesting to see whether ISRO finally attempts to fly the uprated L40's on this mission. The High Thrust Vikas Engine (HTVE) is currently only being used in the second stage. The HTVE has a slightly higher chamber pressure (62.5 bar) compared to "Normal" Vikas (58.5 bar). This along with a slightly higher propellent burn rate results in a thrust increase of about 6% with minimal increase in dry mass.

If they can get the sea level version of this engine to work on the L40s then GSLV's GTO performance can probably be enhanced by at least another 100-200kg.

Highly likely F13 will be skipped over. ISRO has a history of skipping over the number "13" in it's mission numbering. PSLV-C13 and GSAT-13 were both skipped over in this way. NISAR mission should be F15.

ISRO, which started the new year on a grand note with the success of PSLV-C58, is preparing for another launch this month itself. The GSLV is preparing to launch on 26th of this month from Satish Dhawan Space Center in Sriharikota, Tirupati district. The INSAT-3DS satellite will be sent into orbit through this rocket. The liquid fuel used in this rocket was brought from Mahendragiri in Tamil Nadu to Shar on Tuesday in two special vehicles under heavy security.

Launch delayed to first week of February

Quote
Isro officials said that the launch was previously planned for January, but it is now likely to happen in February. They, however, said that the satellite is already in the process of being integrated with the launch vehicle and the agency is only waiting for a final launch date.

Quote
“It is likely to happen by the first week of February itself,” a senior official confirmed, asking not to be named.

Quote
The INSAT-3DS mission will carry satellites for the India Meteorological Organisation (IMD) as a part of its series of climate observatory satellites. This mission was initiated as a part of a collaboration between Isro and IMD to improve the network of climate services. The multi-mission meteorological data receiving and propulsion system collaboration includes three dedicated Earth observation satellites —INSAT-3D and INSAT-3DR --- which are already in orbit, with the INSAT-3DS due next.

INSAT-3DS lift off mass is only 2275kg. It seems they are still not confident in the GSLV being able to put the 2500kg satellite into the GTO orbit.

It is unusual for any launcher to require it's full lift capacity to a particular orbit. So no one really knows for sure if a launcher could delivered maximum payload mass to a particular orbit until it is attempted.

It has better thermal properties due to the white color, and it is more environmentally friendly to produce.

It has better thermal properties due to the white color, and it is more environmentally friendly to produce.

From when the LVM3 rocket also switched from gray/black insulation to white: https://www.wionews.com/india-news/isros-c25-cryogenic-stage-now-sports-white-ditches-black-whats-the-science-behind-it-575318

For the first five launches of the LVM3 rocket, ISRO had been using a grey/black insulation material for the C25 stage and now that material has been replaced with a white coloured one.

"The earlier insulation material was based on Hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC) and owing to environmental concerns, we have switched to greener alternatives based on chemicals such as Hydrofluoro-Olefine," said Nair.

HCFCs are globally regarded as unsafe as they contain chlorine and have the potential to deplete the ozone layer. Owing to this, there are certain manufacturing caps on this material and ISRO is avoiding its use.

Regarding the grey/black colour being replaced with white, he added that the earlier anti-static coating (meant to prevent a build-up of static electricity) has been replaced with a white one. He reasoned that this was owing to solar absorptivity, as dark colours like black attract a lot of heat and affect the temperature of the cryogenic fuels.

Notable points:

- Planned burn duration of GS3 in this mission is 3 seconds longer at 813 seconds compared to 810 seconds
  in the previous launch (GSLV-F12)
- Vikas engines in L40s are the standard version not the "High Thrust" variant
- New white insulation used on GS3 stage for first time

Slight petering of the side boosters, but looked ok in the performance graph. First and second stages burned alright and separated, along with the fairing being jettisoned. Now into coasting prior to third stage ignition.

Cryogenic 3rd stage performance normal (remember this caused lots of grief to GLSV Mk II in years past, so worth celebrating). In other news, Sri Lanka has been rediscovered (by ISRO)!  ;D

Congratulations to Société Européenne de Propulsion of France for their liquid fuel Viking propulsion technology which performed flawlessly in this launch.

Further congratulations must also be extended to the Khrunichev State Research and Production Space Center of the former Soviet Union for their KVD-1 cryogenic propulsion technology which performed flawlessly for over 800 seconds in order to place the INSAT-3DS into the GTO orbit.

Thank you for your contribution to the Indian Space Program!

Congrats to the Indian scientists, engineers and technicians who would have toiled for years to learn, absorb and develop a huge number of components and sub systems for ISRO'S launch vehicles. It's one thing to be exposed to ideas and designs; it's another to work hard, and long, to absorb know how, and then manufacturer a majority of the components, while also making adaptations and improvements in the original technology. .

Satori,

Is the first stage similar to the Russian Proton first stage, all hypergolic fuel, the center tank has no engine but feeds to the outer four engines?

Hi!

No. What we see is a solid propellant central core with four hypergolic strapons. The central core and the four strapons make the first stage and they separate all together from the second stage (hypergolic).

To be more precise about the GSLV Mark I/Mark II configuration. AIUI, the first stage is the 4 strapped-on boosters with a hypergolic engine on each booster. The core stage with the solid motor is the zero stage, since it got a shorter burn time of about 93 seconds than the strapped-on boosters with about 159 seconds as well as lower specific impulse. There is more hypergolic propellant mass in the strapped-on boosters than the propellant mass in the solid motor.

Did the center fire up at T-0 or was air started later?

The L-40 boosters start at T-4.8 seconds with the S-138 core motor igniting at T0. The S-138 burns out at T+109 seconds with the boosters cutting off about 40 seconds later.

I think there's that disadvantage of the first stage carrying the dead weight of the S-138 while the boosters are firing.
