The next Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle launch will be the GSLV F09 mission and we plan to have it in July 2016
.
.
The GSLV F09 mission will have any one of the three satellites - GSAT-9, GSAT-7A or the INSAT 3DR - as payload, depending on the priority at the time

Why ISRO has selected INSAT-3DR over other satellites as already INSAT-3D in orbit with the same Imager & Sounder?

Does any one have idea on this?

INSAT-3D had some technical issues shortly after launch leading to limited operation. Hopefully INSAT-3DR will not run into the same issues.

FYI this should be the first launch where the indigenous cryo is flown in uprated configuration. Thrust will be increased from 73.55kn to 93.1kn and propellent loading will be increased from 12.8 tons to 15 tons.

The second meteorological payload should be referring to SCATSAT, which is planned to be launched in a PSLV flight later this year.

Quote
Enters the all-Indian GSLV, finally, later this month. The GSLV-F05 flight coming up on August 28 or 29 will be its first regular, full-service or 'operational' one
Quote
GSLV-Mk2 however can put only satellites weighing up to 2,200 kg into geostationary space. At least four more of them are in the making now.
Quote
Another official said the plan is to do two GSLV launches a year from next year, apart from doubling the PSLV rate to ten or a dozen a year.

INSAT 3DR weighing only 2061 seems to be little lighter than it should be. Last year GSLV launched a satellite GSAT-6 weighing 2117kg. GSLV Project Manager Umamaheshwaran said last year after the launch that his team would gradually increase the payload up to maximum 2.5 ton by tweaking cryogenic engine in the subsequent launches.

Bur right now, it seems that GSLV II can't go beyond 2.2 ton capacity.

I think it will be a few more flights before we see GSLV fly in a uprated configration. Chances are they are trying to build up the realiablity of the base model to attract customers. PSLV did not get its first major upgrades till its 7th launch.

Possible upgrade path for GSLV:

Upgraded upper stage C-15 : 2.5 ton GTO
4 metre heatshield : More payload room
Uprated liquid fuel boosters + upgraded solid core: 3 - 3.5 ton GTO

Translation by /u/standardengineer
INSAT-3DR satellite has a technical issue.
GSLV launch likely to be delayed.
SHAR: As per sources GSLV launch due for Aug 29 is likely to be delayed. Launcher-satellite integration tests are going on. A pyrocutter is used to deploy solar panels in the satellites. The pyrocutter on INSAT-3DR did not meet the standards. They have decided to replace the pyrocutter. Spares are available. Scientists are studying whether to use a spare or to make a new one. GSLV launch will be delayed by three days if they use a spare pyrocutter, it could be delayed by a week if they decide to use a new pyrocutter.
Launch date was not agreed upon in the MRR.
MRR occured at Wednesday evening. They discussed the problems noticed in the solar panels. For this reason launch date was not confirmed. another review meet will happen on thursday.
Tl;DR; A pyrocutter used to deploy solar panels was found to be faulty and will need to be replaced.

Earlier Mr Krishnan had said the Indian weather satellite will be launched on August 28 which has now been postponed to September 8.

Queried about the change in launch plan Krishnan said: "While carrying out the tests there was a technical issue found with a satellite component. It has been sorted out now and hence the delay."

He said the GSLV rocket that would carry the weather satellite INSAT-3DR is fully assembled.

The weather satellite will be mounted on to the rocket in three to four days.

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Buoyed by the success of the ISRO's Sramjet engine test on Sunday, Scientists of Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre (VSSC) and Liquid Propulsion Systems Centre (LPSC) have begun preparations for the launch of GSLV Mark II scheduled for Sep 8.

"Now, the preparations are on for the GSLV Mark II mission on Sept 8 for the launch of INSAT-3DR, an Indian satellite for weather forecast, search and rescue information. It will be the second flight using the indigenously developed cryogenic engine after it was successfully used for the first time to launch GSLV-D5 in 2014," VSSC director K Sivan told TOI.

The indigenous cryogenic engine to be used for GSLV Mark II on Sept 8 will be similar to the one used in GSLV-D5 launch two years back, the scientists said.

There were conflicting reports in many newspapers about if INSAT 3DR is a 2061 Kg or 2200 Kg Satellite.
But all the misinformation is laid to rest by the ISRO Website INSAT 3DR page.

It is a 2211 Kg Satellite, an increase of odd 100 kg than the satellite launched by GSLV MK II last year.

[/quote]

INSAT-3DR has a lift-off mass of 2211 kg, which includes about 1255 kg of propellant. The propellant carried by INSAT-3DR is mainly required to raise the satellite from the Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit (GTO) to its final Geostationary Orbit and to maintain the satellite in its orbital slot during its life. INSAT-3DR is based on ISRO's two Tonne Class platform (I-2K bus) employing light-weight structural elements like Carbon Fibre Reinforced Plastic (CFRP). The satellite has a solar array generating 1700 Watts of power.

GSLV-F05 / INSAT-3DR Mission is scheduled to be launched on Sept 08, 2016 at 16:10 hrs (IST) from SDSC, SHAR, Sriharikota.

INSAT-3DR has a lift-off mass of 2211 kg, which includes about 1255 kg of propellant. The propellant carried by INSAT-3DR is mainly required to raise the satellite from the Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit (GTO) to its final Geostationary Orbit and to maintain the satellite in its orbital slot during its life. INSAT-3DR is based on ISRO's two Tonne Class platform (I-2K bus) employing light-weight structural elements like Carbon Fibre Reinforced Plastic (CFRP). The satellite has a solar array generating 1700 Watts of power.

GSLV-F05 / INSAT-3DR Mission is scheduled to be launched on Sept 08, 2016 at 16:10 hrs (IST) from SDSC, SHAR, Sriharikota.

India should think alternative ways of propelling the satellite so as to reduce flight mass. Japan has utilized eon propulsion system. Indian too can think of in such direction for cruising the bird on space.

GSAT 4 launched in 2010 had ion propulsion, but it failed to reach orbit. ISRO is working on using ion propulsion for its future satellites.

Information about ISRO's ion thrusters can be found here: https://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=33770.0

GSAT-19E would be having ion thrusters for satellite station keeping. It would be launched aboard LVM3-D1 by the end of this year.

There were conflicting reports in many newspapers about if INSAT 3DR is a 2061 Kg or 2200 Kg Satellite.
But all the misinformation is laid to rest by the ISRO Website INSAT 3DR page.

It is a 2211 Kg Satellite, an increase of odd 100 kg than the satellite launched by GSLV MK II last year.


It seems an increase of odd 100 kg payload capacity has an effect in vehicle's guidance error margin - targeted inclination of 20.61° for GSLV F5  Vs  19.3° inclination achieved by GSLV D5/GSAT-14 mission. If you see past GSLV missions you can clearly observe gradual increase of inclination with increase of vehicle's payload capacity .

IIRC , PSLV coutdown = 48 hrs.

Count down of GSLV (~29 hrs ) << PSLV count down (~48 hrs).

Is this because the GSLV has one less stage ?

Just to check, this is the first GSLV since the GSAT-6 launch a year ago?

There was also an attempt to launch a GSLV in August 2013:-

Quote
The launch attempt of GSLV-D5 on August 19, 2013, was aborted due to a leak observed in the UH25 fuel system of the Liquid Second Stage (GS2) during the final phase of the countdown at 1:30 hrs before lift-off (T0). The Failure analysis board (FAB) concluded that a crack, attributed to Stress Corrosion Cracking (SCC), in the parent metal region of UH25 tank (material: Aluminium alloy AA7020) was the cause for the leak during the preflight pressurization of tank at T0-1:47 hr. Based on the impact assessment of the UH25 spillage on the vehicle systems, the GSLV-D5 vehicle for the next mission was prepared with new stages of GS2, L40 and GS1 (including core base shroud, interstages IS1/2V and IS1/2M). The Cryo stage, Payload fairing, Equipment bay and the GSAT-14 spacecraft were preserved and reused.

That would normally be classed as a scrub rather than an unsuccessful launch attempt although as you quoted they changed most of the rocket before it successfully launched in January 2014.


If this launch is successful it will be the first time the GSLV has completed three consecutive launches without a failure.

I used to hope that GSLV would go on to become as successful a workhorse as PSLV - but now I just hope that ISRO moves past it and keeps on iteratively improving LVM3 to better and better platforms, like an HLV

I like to see GSLV more as a test bed where ISRO really learnt the trade of rocket design. All the difficulties they encountered in the realization of the cryogenic upper stage (and a staged combustion cycle one at that ! ) and the liquid strapons would have given them a rock-solid base and confidence in growing towards LVM3 and ULV.

Very true, I think, GSLV-MKII used as a test-bed, most probably will be discontinued and replaced with LVM3 and versions of ULV/HLV

Another view of the satellite. DD is showing the wrong aspect ratio on Youtube, but I'm manually correcting this in my posts.

One of the webcasts:

This one has correct aspect ratio.

I went back and listened again to the speech. At 59:20 he says "He has already demanded we fix the date of the next launch by end of March 2017." I believe that is for the next GSLV Mk.II launch.

GSLV Successfully Launches India’s Weather Satellite INSAT-3DR

In its tenth flight (GSLV-F05) conducted today, India's Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle, equipped with the indigenous Cryogenic Upper Stage (CUS), successfully launched the country's weather satellite INSAT-3DR, into a Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit (GTO). The achieved orbit is very close to the intended one. The launch took place from the Second Launch Pad at the Satish Dhawan Space Centre SHAR (SDSC SHAR), Sriharikota, the spaceport of India. This was the first operational flight of GSLV equipped with CUS and the fourth to carry the indigenous CUS. Today’s GSLV flight was the third consecutive success achieved by GSLV carrying indigenous CUS and the 2211 kg INSAT-3DR is the heaviest satellite to be launched from the Indian soil.

In its oval shaped GTO, the INSAT-3DR satellite is now orbiting the Earth with a perigee (nearest point to Earth) of 169.76 km and an apogee (farthest point to Earth) of 36,080.5 km with an orbital inclination of 20.62 deg with respect to the equator.

After a 29 hour 40 minutes countdown, the 415 tonne, 49 m tall GSLV-F05 carrying INSAT-3DR, lifted off at the rescheduled time of 16:50 Hrs IST. The 40 minute delay in the launch was due to an anomaly observed in the functioning of a pressure release valve in the liquid Oxygen filling ground segment which was resolved later.

At 4.8 seconds before the countdown reached zero, the four liquid propellant strap-on stages of GSLV-F05, each carrying 42 tonne of liquid propellants, were ignited. At count zero and after confirming the normal performance of all the four strap-on motors, the 139 tonne solid propellant first stage core motor was ignited and GSLV lifted off. The major phases of the flight included the core motor burn-out, strap on burn-out, ignition of the second stage, separation of the core motor together with strap-ons, payload fairing separation, second stage separation, CUS ignition and its timely shut down after satisfactory performance. About seventeen minutes after lift-off, INSAT-3DR was successfully placed in GTO.

Soon after its injection into GTO, the solar array of INSAT-3DR was automatically deployed and the Master Control Facility (MCF) at Hassan in Karnataka took control of the satellite.

Like its predecessor INSAT-3D which is providing service from orbit since 2013, INSAT-3DR is an advanced meteorological (weather observation) satellite built by India to provide a variety inputs essential for accurate weather forecasting. For this, it is equipped with three payloads (instruments), namely, a Multispectral Imager, Sounder and weather Data Relay Transponder. INSAT-3DR also carries a satellite aided Search and Rescue Transponder that picks up and relays alert signals originating from distress beacons of maritime, aviation and land based users.

In the coming days, INSAT-3DR's orbit will be raised from its present GTO to the final circular Geostationary Orbit (GSO) by firing the satellite's Liquid Apogee Motor (LAM) in stages. The satellite will be commissioned into service after the completion of orbit raising operations and the satellite’s positioning in its designated orbital slot of 74 degree East longitude in the GSO and in-orbit testing of its payloads.

Today’s flight of GSLV further highlights the success of ISRO in mastering the highly complex cryogenic rocket propulsion technology.

The operationalisation of India's heavier rocket Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle Mk II (GSLV-Mk II) opens up more launch service revenue opportunity, said a top official of Antrix Corporation Ltd.

"The GSLV rocket will operate in a different satellite launch segment. We are looking at various avenues to earn foreign exchange using this rocket," Rakesh said.

Adding to this, Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) Chairman A.S.Kiran Kumar said: "Antrix is also looking at launching small satellites in low orbits. Several small satellites can be accommodated in one GSLV."

Complete launch video



At 53:43 in the launch video, the altitude and velocity plots stop updating for a few seconds.

Loss of data link ?

Any reason why ISRO skipped F03 & F05 missions when there was a continuity of Russian CUS powered operational GSLV flights ?

My guess is that those mission numbers may have been associated to particular launches (i.e payloads) that were either delayed or did not materialize (INSAT 3D, GSAT 7 etc. ) owing to the three failed GSLV flights. ISRO seem to associate mission numbers to payloads well in advance, and do not reassign them if there are changes later, which is why the PSLV mission numbers are all jumbled up at the time of launch.

There is a continuous and overlapping telemetry coverage from launch till satellite injection, handled by various ground stations. In fact, Hindi commentator was explaining the same at that timeframe in the launch video. Brunei station covers from 700 seconds into the flight till 1000 seconds, and Biak station covers from ~960 seconds into the flight till ~1600 seconds. At 54:20 in the video, we can hear "Biak AOS" (acquisition of signal). So, I guess the ground trace plotter/blinker momentarily stopped during telemetry handover from one ground station to another, and not really due to loss of data link.

F03 would just be a tail number. It is not the actual serial number of the various rocket stages. You’ll find the same thing with everyone else’s rockets.

Early references point to F03 earmarked for INSAT-3D.

The last references also include mention of CUS15 and PAM upper stages. I think that it was being prepared for GLONASS?

Congrats ISRO on an impressive launch. Man, that rocket is chunky... a proud sight to see.

Thanks also to Steven, Chris, Ohsin, the rest of the gang for all the coverage here. Those still photos are amazing  :o is all of that falling debris ice or some type of insulation?

Insulation I think..

[...] is all of that falling debris ice or some type of insulation?


That would be some interesting serigraphy ISRO does, considering the "ice" is painted over with the same writings as the underlying metal ;)


It's just insulation (most probably expanded polystyrene, but I don't know what they actually use) helping with the thermal conditioning of the solid and the hypergols. The third stage has its own permanent insulation, which makes it black.

In 3 orbit raising maneuvers, LAM of INSAT-3DR was fired for total of 6403 seconds where as for GSAT-6 it was fired for 6628.32 seconds i.e 225.32 seconds less than GSAT-6.
Reason ?

Video from onboard camera of GSLV-F05

From what I saw, there were two cameras on the second stage:

One mounted near the engine bell showing separation of the first stage and boosters.

And one mounted as a forward-facing view showing separation and ignition of the third stage.

I am curious, if they, continued to capture the video until, stage breakup in the atmoshpere, or splash down, or LOS. ?

I dunno 'cause I don't usually follow up with the Indian Space Research Organisation.
