An interesting document; worth noting that it was written in November 2010, so the projected launch dates might be obsolete.

Thank you input~2 and Salo for the very interesting information you provide.
I may have a question at this point. In the last update of the launch schedule, GSAT-14 appears as being approved. Does this mean the spacecraft is now under construction?
I thank you in advance for your answer.
Regards

MA

Hi MA,
According to the 2010-2011 ISRO annual report GSAT-14 is planned to be launched by GSLV with indigenous cryogenic upper stage.
As the satellite appears in ISRO last mission profile for a launch in FY 2011/2012, we can assume it has been approved and is under construction!  :)
GSAT-14 seems to be the candidate for GSLV-MKII (i.e. with Indian-made cryogenic upper stage) return to flight after the April 2010 failure; this launch is now tentatively announced for the second part of 2012.

Strangely, Google translates "с космодрома в Индии" as
"from Baikonur in India" ::) while "космодрома" is correctly translated as "spaceport" ???

According to well confirmed reports stacking operations for PSLV-C17(GSAT-12) mission have started on second launch pad..parts of first stage appear to have been stacked up...if all goes well, we may have a launch is early July. The rocket looks like a XL version like the one which took Chandrayaan.

Stacking operations of PSLV-C(?) Megha Tropiques mission are yet to begin...I assume this is the CA version

According to
http://www.orari.or.id

LAPAN-ORARI satellite are part of Megha Tropiques mission.

Quote:
LAPAN-ORARI satellite is a satellite that will take FM voice transponder UHF / VHF frequency 145.880MHz and 435.880MHz and Digipeater APRS frequency 145.825MHz. Also LAPAN-ORARI satellite will emit green light laser for attitude determination. Planned for a launch into a 650km LEO with low (8 degree) inclination from India as a secondary payload with \"Megha-Tropique\".

It seems that another Indonesian radio-amateur microsatellite, LAPAN-A2,  will be launched at the same time.

From the Mission Profile posted above, there is only GSLV D4 flying in the FY 2011-12. This, ISRO, Chairman said will fly with a Russian cryo to check out the vehicle design. So, the GSAT-14 would likely fly on a GSLV Mk-I.

 This must be quite a recent change.

 The ISRO website still shows the following.
Quote
GSAT-14
The spacecraft weighs around 2050 kg and is planned to be launched by GSLV with indigenous cryogenic upper stage.

ISRO is planning to undertake the next developmental
flight of GSLV (GSLV-D4) using the Indigenous
Cryogenic Stage. The mission aims at flight testing of
Indigenous Cryogenic engine & Stage. The launch of
GSLV-D4 is planned for 1st quarter 2012.
FEBRUARY 23, 2011

 Also of note is that one of the ten connectors on GSLV-F04 also prematurely ‘snapped’.

I based my reasoning on this report that appeared 6 days ago - http://goo.gl/Fj85q
