The satellite INSAT 3DR, weighing 2,211 kg, will be put into a geo-move circle by the rocket at first during lift off. The satellite will at that point be taken to its assigned geosynchronous circle utilizing its very own drive frameworks. 

INSAT 3DR has an operational existence of eight years and is furnished with present day instruments to concentrate weather examples and to help in the surface-level hunt and salvage tasks. 

The launch of the GSLV-F05 will be the tenth trip of India’s Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle, intended to infuse 2 to 2.5 ton class of satellites in geostationary circles. 

In this mission, the indigenously created Cryogenic Upper Stage is being continued load up the launch vehicle for the fourth time. 

A noteworthy part of the mission on Thursday is that, it is set to be the main operational trip of the GSLV conveying indigenous cryogenic motor. 

Its past adventures were experimental drills including the GSLV-D5 and D6 missions in January 2014 and August 2015 that were reverberating victories. With Thursday’s launch, the country’s own Cryogenic Upper Stage in the rocket is set to move on from test stage to operational stage. 

The launch of the GSLV-F05 will be the tenth trip of India’s Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle, intended to infuse 2 to 2.5 ton class of satellites in geostationary circles. 

The 3D will work until 2021. The 3DR will last till around 2024. A moment successor, INSAT-3DS, is relied upon to work from 2022 to 2029. The 3B and 3C are not operational.
