A 2250-kg communications satellite named “Indian Angry Bird” was launched by ISRO in the evening from Sriharikota. The Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle Mk II was used to launch it.

The GSAT-7A, along with the earlier satellites — GSAT-7 and GSAT-6 will form a band of communication satellites that will provide assistance to the security forces of the country.

M. Bahadur, the retired Air Vice Marshal said that the satellite will add a “powerful redundant layer of communication to the Integrated Air Command and Control System for the air warriors”.

According to the latest update, the satellite has been placed into orbit successfully.

The satellite is expected to work as a force multiplier. It will connect all Indian Air Force assets like planes, airborne early warning control platforms, drones and ground stations and will build a centralized network.

Also, the Union Ministry of Defence has signed off a plan to set up a special “Defence Space Agency”. The agency will serve as an integrated tri-services unit that will use all Indian space assets for the benefit of the country’s security forces.

This was ISRO’s 69th rocket launch from Sriharikota. Also, it is the last launch of ISRO for the year 2018.
