The Indian Space Agency confirmed about the Thursday evening launch of India’s navigation satellite IRNSS-1H using the rocket Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle-C39 (PSLV-C39) and the countdown of 29 hours has begun on Wednesday.
Indian Space Organisation (ISRO) stated that the 29-hour countdown to begin at 2 pm on Wednesday has already been cleared by the Mission Readiness Review (MRR) committee and Launch Authorisation Board (LAB).
India will launch its eighth IRNSS satellite on Thursday at 7 pm. The navigation satellite IRNSS-1H (Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System) will weigh 1,425 kg along with its PSLV-C39 rocket. The IRNSS-1H satellite will replace the IRNSS-1A as its atomic clocks have failed.
The PSLV rocket will propel the IRNSS-1H into a Sub-Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit. The IRNSS-1H is all set for its launch from the second launch pad of Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SDSC) SHAR, Sriharikota.
