The CMS-01 satellite is replacing the ageing GSAT-12 satellite that was launched 15 July, 2011, with a mission life of seven years but ended up working for nine years
The satellite is going to function as a replacement for communication satellite GSAT-12 which was launched 11 years ago. CMS-01 will have a lifespan of over seven years, as per ISRO.
The PSLV is 44-metre-high and has four stages with six strap-on booster motors on to the first stage that gives its a higher thrust during the initial flight moments.
Launched in 2016, Micius has already produced a number of breakthroughs under its operating team led by Pan Jian-Wei, China’s “Father of Quantum”.
The new launch joined 120 similar spacecraft that were launched last year in May and November.
The communication satellite was launched in August to replace an earlier one that had failed.
