GSat 11 [ISRO]
GSAT-11 is a large planned Indian geostationary communications satellite.
The 5725 kg satellite is based on the new I-6K Bus and carry 40 transponders in the Ku-band and Ka-band frequencies (32 Ka × Ku-Band Forward Link Transponders and 8 Ku × Ka band Return Link Transponders), which are 3-6 times more powerful than that used in existing indian communications satellites and capable of providing upto 10 Gbps throughput.
GSat 11 was already delivered to the launch site in April 2018, when it had to be returned to India - likely in conjunction with the failure of GSat 6A.
