GSAT-24 is a 3-axis body stabilized geostationary communications satellite based on ISRO’s I-3K (I-3000) (?) bus to provide DTH broadcasting services.
NewSpace India Limited (NSIL), incorporated during March 2019, is a Central Public Sector Enterprise (CPSE), under Department of Space (DOS) and is the commercial arm of ISRO.
As part of this initiative, NSIL is now undertaking its “1st Demand Driven communication satellite mission” named GSAT-24 which is an 4 tonne class Ku- band satellite. NSIL is getting this satellite built by ISRO and will be launching it using Ariane-5 launcher operated by M/s Arianespace. The entire satellite capacity on-board GSAT-24 will be leased to its committed customer M/s Tata Sky for meeting their DTH application needs.
The satellite will be launched on board of an Ariane-5ECA+ early in 2022.
