The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is all set to launch Earth observation satellite EOS-03 on the Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle-F10 (GSLV-F10) from the second launch pad of Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SDSC) in Sriharikota on August 12.

The space agency began the countdown on Wednesday morning for the launch of its GSLV-F10 rocket. The rocket carries the country’s first Geo imaging Satellite-1 (GISAT-1) which is renamed as EOS-03.

The EOS is a state-of-the-art agile Earth observation satellite. The three-stage rocket will be carrying the 2,268 kg earth observation satellite, and after just 18 minutes into its flight, the satellite will be placed at the geosynchronous transfer orbit (GTO), as described by the department of space under ISRO.

The satellite will reach the final geostationary orbit using its onboard propulsion system. GSLV carries a 4-meter diameter Ogive shaped payload fairing for the first time. The fourteenth flight of GSLV carrying GISAT-1 will be the country’s first eye in sky to be placed in geostationary orbit.

As announced by the Indian Space agency, the GSLV-F10 is scheduled to launch on August 12 at 0543 Hrs IST. One can watch the online streaming on Facebook, YouTube or Twitter.
