Indian Space Research Organization is scheduled to launch a PSLV-XL rocket as part of the CMS-01 (GSAT-12R) mission. The launch window for the Communications mission is on 12/14/2020 UTC (UNCONFIRMED) from Sriharikota, Republic of India. Don’t miss this exciting rocket launch! Watch the launch video of the PSLV-XL and experience the excitement for yourself.
CMS-01, formerly also known as GSAT-12R, is an Indian telecommunications satellite.
PSLV-XL is the upgraded version of Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle in its standard configuration boosted by more powerful, stretched strap-on boosters with 12 tonne propellant load. Weighing 320t at lift-off, the vehicle uses larger strap-on motors (PSOM-XL or S12) to achieve higher payload capability. On 29 December 2005, ISRO successfully tested the improved version of strap-on booster for the PSLV. The first use of PSLV-XL was the launch of Chandrayaan-1 by PSLV C11. The payload capability for this variant is 1,800 kg to SSO.
The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is the space agency of the Government of India headquartered in the city of Bangalore. Its vision is to “harness space technology for national development while pursuing space science research and planetary exploration.”
