The rocket stages (engines) have been fuelled up. Keeping up with the general trend, this was the 41st successful mission of the 43 for PSLV.

Live telecast of the new satellite will be done on Doordarshan, and webcast will be available on ISRO website on Thursday, from 3:30 hours (IST) onwards.

Isro chairman K. Sivan described the mission as a success and congratulated scientists. Indian Standard Time on Thursday. The satellite is part of the constellation of seven NavIC navigation satellite.

The August 31 mission was a failure as the rocket's heat shield did not separate three minutes after the rocket's lift-off.

After separation, the solar panels of IRNSS-1I were deployed automatically.

The March 29 mission lofted India's GSAT 6A communications satellite created to provide mobile video and data services across the Indian subcontinent. For this satellite, AIT was done by a group of engineers from private firms, with ample handholding by ISRO, which is hoping to completely delegate AIT to private companies in the near future. "IRNSS-1A will continue to remain in orbit for messaging purposes", the ISRO spokesperson confirmed to ThePrint.

He said IRNSS-1I was successfully placed in the designated orbit. "In the coming days, the MSF will perform orbit manoeuvres to position the satellite at 55 deg east longitude in the planned geosynchronous orbit with an inclination of 29 deg to the equator". IRNSS 1I is also heading to the same slot in the Indian navigation constellation that was intended for the spacecraft lost on the failed launch in August. The IRNSS-1I is the eighth such satellite to be part of a constellation.

This is an independent Indian Satellite-based positioning system for critical National applications.

The need for an indigenous GPS in India was identified after the Kargil conflict when India desperately needed services of satellite-based navigation system but did not have one of its own. The Indian government will now focus on completing development of user applications, ground terminals and other technology to allow Indian citizens, the Indian military, airliners and ships to relay on data from IRNSS satellites. Then subsequently, the communication will be established and we will go ahead. "For this goal, the support of different institutions, as well as industry, is required for producing more and more navigation-based services for the country".

The workhorse, PSLV, injected the satellite into orbit 19 minutes after lift-off.

"PSLV is once again on a successful stride", said P. Kunhikrishnan, director of the spaceport at Sriharikota.

To a query if ISRO was facing a funds crunch, he said it was not the case. "Towards the end of the year we have the major mission - Chandryaan-2", he said "there were plans for the 5.7 tone GSAT-11 mission, a throughput satellite using Arianne rocket, he said, adding that it would be the heaviest satellite the space agency has made so far".
