Last year even though India has become the second largest internet user after China, leaving India behind, but India is still behind many Asian countries in terms of Internet speed. However, this situation will change even in just 18 months. In fact, launching three new communication satellites, there is a plan to get the entry of the Indian Institute of Information Research Organization (ISRO) into the world of high-speed internet.
In talks with the Times of India, ISRO chairman Kiran Kumar said, “We will launch three new communications satellites. Kiran Kumar said that we will launch the GSAT-19 in June. After that GSAT-11 and then GSAT-20 will be launched successfully. GSAT-19 will be launched from ISRO’s Next Generation Vehicle GSLVMK III. ”
Kiran Kumar said, “It has a cryogenic engine, which has the capacity to transmit 4 ton capacity satellites into geosynchronous transfer orbit. This satellite will use multiple spot beam, which will speed Internet connectivity and connectivity. The entire country will be covered through multiple beams. “In a way, the spot beam is a satellite signal, which can cover only a limited area of land. Beam will be used multiple times in small areas through three satellites.
Tapan Mishra, director, Space’s App Center, Ahmedabad, said, “All these three satellites will start giving high-quality internet, phone and video services as soon as they are in operation.” Tapan Mishra said that the effective data rate of the first projected GSAT satellite will be one gigabyte While GSAT-19 will be able to deliver four gigabytes of data per second. That is, GSAT-19 will work alone with four satellites. This satellite will use eight beams.
He said, “GSAT-19 heavy Satellite Satellite GSAT-11 will be launched at the end of this year, in which 16 beams will be used. It will be able to transfer data at the rate of 13 gigabytes per second. At the same time, there is a successful launching of GSAT-20 by the end of 2018, which will use 40 beams. There will be two polarization in each beam, which will convert them into 80 beams. The data rate of this satellite will be 60 to 70 gigabytes per second. ‘
