ISRO’s GSAT 11 could be last Indian satellite to be launched by a foreign space agency’s Rocket

GSAT-11 could be the last Indian satellite which will be launched by a foreign rocket. According to K Sivan, Chairman of the Indian Space Research Orfanisation (ISRO), if al things work out as intended, the 5.7-tonne GSAT-11 will be most probably the last heavy Indian satellite to be launched by a foreign space agency.

The GSAT-11 communication satellite will be launched by Arianespace’s Ariane rocket soon.

“We are working on a dual concept: Increasing the carrying capacity of our heaviest rocket — the 640-tonne Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle-Mk III (GSLV Mk III) to six tonnes — while producing high throughput and lower weight communication satellites,” said Sivan.

INCREASING PRODUCTION OF ROCKETS

According to Sivan, to increase the production of rockets, the space agency is looking at transferring the technology for making Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) rocket to industries.
ISRO AND REUSABLE LAUNCH VEHICLE

Sivan said ISRO is also focusing on developing a reusable launch vehicle that involves a lot of new technologies and the Scramjet engine which in turn would reduce costs.According to him, the first half of 2018 will be busy with the launch of Chandrayaan II (moon mission), GSAT 6A and a navigation satellite as the replacement for the first of the seven navigation satellites.

On January 12, ISRO launched its remote sensing satellite Cartosat.

K SIVAN, CHAIRMAN OF ISRO

Sixty-year-old Sivan, the new head of the Indian space agency, is not shy of saying that he wore trousers and chappals for the first time when he stepped into the Madras Institute of Technology (MIT) here for a degree in aeronautical engineering.

“I studied in Tamil medium in a government-owned school. I wore only dhoti and shirt without any footwear till I finished my graduation at the ST Hindu College in Nagercoil. Only after joining MIT did I start wearing trousers and chappals,”Sivan told IANS.

Son of a farmer, Sivan used to help his father who was a farmer and also in his vegetables/fruits trading activity during his school days.

Today, as the head of one of the world’s premier space agencies, Sivan’s task is cut out.

I delegate work and expect deliverables as promised. Space system is unforgiving. If there is a problem, it will fail.

– Sivan about his management style
Sivan’s elder son has completed electronics and communication engineering and the younger son is pursuing a graduate degree in animation.
