Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on Monday successfully launched its advanced navigation satellite NVS-01 from Sriharikota.
The launch was carried out from Satish Shawan Space Centre in Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh. NVS-01 is first of the India’s second-generation NavIC satellites that accompany enhanced features.
ISRO informed in a tweet that the satellite was injected into a Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit after 19 minutes of flight.
“After a flight of about 19 minutes, the NVS-O1 satellite was injected precisely into a Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit. Subsequent orbit-raising manoeuvres will take NVS-01 into the intended Geosynchronous orbit,” ISRO stated.
