SEOUL, South Korea — A pair of satellites from Malaysia and India are slated to launch in late June on the Ariane 5 rocket’s first flight of the year. 

Arianespace announced the June 22 launch date this week. Liftoff from Europe’s Guiana Space Center spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana, is targeted for an hour-and-forty-minute window that opens at 5:03 p.m. Eastern.

Aboard the rocket will be Malaysian satellite operator Measat’s Measat-3d and state-funded NewSpace India Limited’s GSAT-24. Both are communications satellites bound for geostationary orbit.

Measat-3d, built by Airbus Defence and Space, will co-locate with Measat-3a and Measat-3b at the 91.5 degrees East orbital slot to provide satellite broadband to areas with limited or no terrestrial network throughout Malaysia. Measat-3 will also provide redundancy and additional capacity for video distribution in the Asia-Pacific region.

The multipurpose satellite is equipped with C- and Ku-band payloads for direct-to-home television broadcasting and other telecom services, and a high-throughput Ka-band payload for internet connectivity. Measat-3d will also carry an L-band navigation payload for South Korean satellite operator KT SAT as part of the Korea Augmentation Satellite System effort to boost GPS accuracy in the region.

GSAT-24 is a Ku-band communications satellite built by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) for NewSpace India Limited (NSIL), ISRO’s commercial arm. It will provide high-quality television, telecommunications and broadcasting services over India.

While the satellite’s development was fully funded by NSIL, its capacity will be leased to Tata Sky, an Indian direct broadcast satellite service provider, in the first case of what NSIL called “demand-driven communications satellite mission” in which NSIL is mandated to build, launch, own and operate a satellite to provide its services to committed customers. This mission meant to promote India’s domestic space industry is part of the country’s space reform announced in June 2020

India to launch GSAT-24 aboard European Ariane rocket on June 22, skips ISRO's GSLV

European space agency Arianespace will put into space orbit the Indian satellite GSAT-24 on June 22 using its Ariane 5 rocket, said the space agency

ariane-rocket-carry-indias-gsat-24-satellit               The space agency also shared the picture of the container carrying the Indian satellite being unloaded from an Indian Air Force plane.                                                                                                                        

India has decided to use European space agency Arianespace to launch GSAT-24 instead of ISRO's Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle -Mk III (GSLV-Mk III) which is a four ton payload rocket. Arianespace will put it into space orbit on June 22 using its Ariane 5 rocket.

"Hello there! Welcome to GSAT-24, the second passenger of our Flight #VA257. This satellite built by @isro Afor @NSIL_India, will be launched on June 22 onboard our @Ariane5 Alauncher! We'll let you know once the beast is awake," Arianespace tweeted.

The GSAT-24 satellite is fully funded by the NewSpace India Ltd (NSIL), the commercial arm of India's Department of Space.

The satellite was initially planned for launch during the first quarter of 2022.

The entire satellite capacity on-board GSAT-24 will be leased to its committed customer Tata Sky for meeting their DTH application needs.

A four-ton class communication Ku-band satellite GSAT-24 built by Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) will be owned and operated by NSIL on a commercial basis.

The GSAT-24 will be the 25th Indian satellite orbited by Arianespace.

On September 28, 2021, NSIL entrusted Arianespace with the launch of its GSAT-24 telecommunications satellite, the European Space Agency had said earlier.

However the question that remains unanswered is why NSIL is not using ISRO's Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle -Mk III (GSLV-Mk III) which is a four ton payload rocket.                                                                        Quelle: IBT

Isro to launch GSAT-24 satellite on Europe’s Ariane-V rocket from Kourou on June 22

GSAT-24, an Indian communication satellite built by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), will be launched on Europe's Ariane-V rocket from Kourou in French Guiana on June 22.

India's communication satellite GSAT-24 will be launched by Arianespace from Kourou in French Guiana on June 22, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) said in a mission status update on Tuesday.

"New Space India Limited (NSIL), a Government of India company under the Department of Space (DoS), is undertaking GSAT-24 satellite mission as its 1st Demand Driven mission post space reforms", the Bengaluru-headquartered space agency said.

 

GSAT-24 is a 24-Ku band communication satellite weighing 4,180 kg with pan-India coverage for meeting DTH application needs. NSIL has leased the entire satellite capacity to Tata Play, an ISRO statement said. 

After completing assembly, integration, and environmental tests, the GSAT-24 satellite was cleared by the PSR (Pre-Shipment Review) committee on May 2.

On May 18, the satellite and its supporting equipment were flown to Kourou, French Guiana, aboard a C-17 Globemaster.

The satellite is currently undergoing health and performance checks at clean room facilities in French Guiana as part of the launch campaign.

On Wednesday, European space agency Arianespace will put orbit two communication satellites belonging to India and Malaysia in geostationary orbit.

The two satellites weighing cumulatively 10,863 kg will be flown by Ariane 5 rocket early June 22 from the spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana, said Arianespace.

GSAT-24 built by Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is a 24-Ku band communication satellite weighing 4,180 kg with pan India coverage for meeting the direct-to-home (DTH) application needs.

The Indian government owned enterprise NewSpace India Ltd (NSIL) has leased the entire satellite capacity to Tata Play.

The NSIL is undertaking GSAT-24 satellite mission as its first demand driven mission post space reforms.

The GSAT-24 will be the 25th Indian satellite orbited by Arianespace.

On September 28, 2021, NSIL entrusted Arianespace with the launch of its GSAT-24 telecommunications satellite, the European Space Agency had said earlier.

According to Arianespace, the other satellite MEASAT-3d is a multi-mission telecommunications satellite built by Airbus Defence and Space for MEASAT, a Malaysian satellite operator.

This new satellite will significantly enhance broadband speeds of up to 100 Mbps in areas with limited or no terrestrial network or in rural areas in Malaysia.

Planned for more than 18 years of operation, MEASAT-3d is designed to have electrical power of 12 kW.

It will carry C- and Ku-band payloads for direct-to-home (DTH) services and a high-throughput Ka-band payload with multiple user spot beams optimised to deliver high speed broadband communications over Malaysia for internet connectivity.

Apart from this, the satellite will also host a Q/V band payload, the first of its kind in the Asia-Pacific region, which allows MEASAT to study propagation effects in high rainfall regions like Malaysia, to enable the design of its next generation satellites, Arianespace said.
