GSat 30

GSat 30 [ISRO]

GSAT-30 is an Indian geostationary communications satellite for DTH, Television uplink and VSAT services. It will be a replacement for Insat 4A.

GSAT 30 is based on the I-3K (I-3000) bus and features C and Ku bands transponders. The Dual Gridded Reflector antenna will provide wide coverage in C-band and a Ku-band Gregorian Antenna will provide coverage to Indian mainland and Islands. The on-board Ku-band beacon transmitter will enable earth stations to point their antennas towards the satellite.

The satellite was launched in 2020 on an Ariane-5ECA launch vehicle.
