ISRO successfully launches GSLV-F12/NVS-01 mission

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) successfully launched the GSLV-F12/NVS-01 mission on Monday, May 29, 2023, from the second launch pad at the Satish Dhawan Space Centre SHAR, Sriharikota. The vehicle took off precisely at 10.42 am IST and successfully deployed the NVS-01 navigation satellite into a Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit.

The NVS-01 is the first of the second-generation satellites envisaged for the Navigation with Indian Constellation (NavIC) services. NavIC is a regional navigation satellite system developed by ISRO. It provides position, velocity, and time information to users in India and its surrounding region.

The NVS-01 satellite weighs about 2,232 kg and carries navigation payloads in L1, L5, and S bands. It also carries an indigenous atomic clock for the first time. The atomic clock will help to improve the accuracy of the NavIC system.

The GSLV-F12 is the 15th flight of India’s GSLV and the 9th flight with indigenous cryogenic stage. This is the 6th operational flight of GSLV with indigenous cryogenic stage. The configuration of GSLV-F12 payload fairing is 4 m dia ogive version.

The successful launch of the GSLV-F12/NVS-01 mission is a major milestone for ISRO. It demonstrates the country’s continued progress in the field of space technology. The NVS-01 satellite will be a valuable asset for the NavIC system and will help to improve the accuracy of the service.

ISRO Chairman K. Sivan congratulated the team for the successful launch. He said, “The successful launch of GSLV-F12/NVS-01 is a major milestone for ISRO. It demonstrates our continued progress in the field of space technology. The NVS-01 satellite will be a valuable asset for the NavIC system and will help to improve the accuracy of the service.”

The launch of the GSLV-F12/NVS-01 mission is a major boost for India’s space program. It demonstrates the country’s growing capabilities in the field of space technology. The NVS-01 satellite will be a valuable asset for the NavIC system and will help to improve the accuracy of the service.
