Weeks After Mission That Failed, ISRO Readies Another Satellite Launch

He said ISRO is moving towards to get the rocket and satellite through industry.
IRNSS-1H was ISRO's first backup satellite, launched in August 2017 with the intention of replacing IRNSS-1A.
The NAVIC, an acronym for "Navigation with Indian Constellation" is the operational name for the Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System (IRNSS) which is created to be equivalent to the Global Positioning System (GPS) owned by the US.
On the status of the recently launched GSAT-6A satellite that lost communication link soon after it was put into orbit, Sivan said the space agency was able to locate the satellite and track its movements. The previous one was a failure as it got lost in August a year ago.
The IRNSS-1I mission will take place two weeks after the space agency launched GSAT-6A on board GSLV Mk-II. The satellite will finally be placed into the required orbit 19 minutes into the flight.
IRNSS 1I is scheduled to enter service in May, after four orbit-raising burns with the satellite's main engine to climb into a circular geosynchronous-type orbit at an altitude of more than 22,000 miles.

Each satellite has three rubidium atomic clocks and a total of 27 clocks for the navigation satellite system (including the standby satellites) were supplied by the same vendor.
IRNSS-1I is the eighth navigation satellite to join the IRNSS space segment. The configuration of IRNSS-1I is similar to IRNSS-1A, 1B, 1C, 1D, 1E, 1F and 1G.
According to ISRO, NavIC is useful for fishermen to reach potential fishing areas.
The navigation system is also helpful for railways in tracking trains and also giving an alert in the case of an unmanned level crossing. The former, operating in L5-band and S-band, will transmit navigation service signals to the users.
The agency is building expertise among private firms to meet its need of 70 large communication and earth observation satellites in the next five years and tap a global satellite market explosion.
