# Gsat_15
GSAT 15 satellite will replace INSAT
3A and 4B.
# DDFreeDish will migrate to GSAT
15 in November/
December.
Its transponders will cater to DTH
television,
besides supporting VSAT operators
who provide
broadband services
GSAT-15, the mainly communications
satellite being
put in space next week, will replace
two older
spacecraft that will likely expire in
the coming
months.Its 24 transponders are
solely in the Ku
band and will cater to DTH (direct-
to-home)
television first, besides supporting
the thousands of
VSAT operators who provide
broadband services;
and DSNG (digital satellite news
gathering) for TV
news channels.GSAT-15 will not add
new
transponder capacity to the country;
it will ‘ensure
sustainability of service’for the
capacity-hungry
DTH sector, according to A.S. Kiran
Kumar,
Chairman of Indian SpaceResearch
Organisation
and Secretary, Department of Space.
It will also
carry the third GAGAN satellite
navigation
transponder as a back-up for airlines
and other
users of augmented GPS-based
systems.GSAT-15,
weighing 3,164 kg, will be launched
in the wee
hours of November 11 (IST) from
Kourou in French
Guiana (in South America) on the
European
Arianespace’s Ariane-5 launcher. The
satellite cost
and the launch fee are around Rs.
860 crore.
GSAT-15 will be flown along with
Saudi Arabia’s
Arabsat-6B/Badr-7.To be stationed
over the
country at a slot at 93.5 degrees East
longitude, the
upcoming satellite must quickly
replace INSAT-3A
and INSAT-4B that are completing
their tenure —
one in November and another later
next
year.INSAT-3A, launched in April
2003, has
completed its 12-year life. INSAT-4B,
flown in
March 2007, got reduced to half its
functions in
2010 after one of its power-generatin
g solar panels
developed a snag.
