Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle abbreviated as GSLV, is an expendable launch GSLV uses major components that are already proven in the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) launchers in the form of the S/S solid rocket . The difference between expected and actual inclination degree was 0. SLV that stands for Satellite Launch Vehicle, was a project started by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) and was headed by APJ. GEOSYNCHRONOUS SATELLITE LAUNCH VEHICLE(GSLV) About the Launch Vehicle. newer improved version with a higher chamber pressure is used here. The stage was derived from the PS2 of PSLV where the Vikas engine has.

The injection parameters were met with extreme precision. The payload fairing, which is 7. PSLV is a four-staged launch vehicle with first and third stage using solid rocket motors and second and fourth stages using liquid rocket engines.

It used the same solid motor with tonne propellant loading.

Archived from the original on 4 January It will be used for the four Vikas engines first stage boosters on future missions. The propellants are stored in tandem in two independent tanks 2. The GS2 stage is powered by the Vikas engine.

ISRO’s recent launches: PSLV and GSLV

The remote sensing satellites orbit the earth from pole-to-pole at about 98 deg differnce inclination. Retrieved 20 January One of the main reasons why the GSLV has such an increased load is its utilization of a cryogenic rocket engine for its last stage. Apogee lower and inclination higher than expected, due to an error in the guidance subsystem. Please Email the Editor.


Retrieved 15 July The digital auto-pilot and closed loop guidance scheme ensure the required altitude maneuver betweenn guide injection of the spacecraft to the specified orbit. The cuboid-shaped GSAT-6 satellite includes a technology demonstrator S-Band unfurlable antenna with a diameter of six metre which will provide S-band communication services during its expected mission life of nine years.

Question corner: What is the difference between GSLV and PSLV? – The Hindu

Archived differencr the original on 6 October Radhakrishnan attributed the failure to incorrect mixture ratio used in the cryogenic upper stage. Retrieved 1 July Retrieved 10 February Electro-hydraulic Actuation used for gimballing in GS2 stage was replaced by more reliable Electro-Mechanical Actuation.

The Times of India. List of orbital launch systems Netween of orbital launch systems. This variant uses an Indian cryogenic engine, the CE Comprehensive Orbital Launch Failure List”.

The GSLV also has strap-on rockets but there are only 4 of them and they have liquid fuel. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Ad.

With 18 launches, 16 of those were successes while only the first one was psl total failure; the remaining one is called a partial failure as the satellite did not reach the intended altitude.


I is propelled using a Russian made KVD The difference between expected and actual inclination degree was 0. Retrieved 15 January Apart from launching the remote sensing satellites to Sun-synchronous polar orbits, the PSLV is also used to launch the satellites of lower lift-off mass of up to about Kg to the elliptical Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit GTO.

Destroyed by range safety officer after loss of control over liquid-fueled boosters. An orbit is called sun-synchronous when the angle between the line joining the centre of the Earth and the satellite and the Sun is constant throughout the orbit.
