GSat 19 [ISRO]
GSAT-19 is an experimental Indian geostationary communications satellite.
GSAT-19E is to act as test bed for several new technologies like the I-6K unified modular bus, deployable thermal radiators, electrical propulsion, indigenous Li-Ion batteries and C-band TWTAs, optical payload, etc.
The satellite is planned to carry a Ka- and Ku-band payload along with a Geostationary Radiation Spectrometer (GRASP) payload to monitor and study the nature of the charged particles and influence of space radiation on spacecraft and electronic components.
The satellite will be launched in early 2017 on the maiden orbital flight of the LVM-3 launch vehicle.
