India does it again; with successful launch of GSAT-6A on board GSLV rocket

is most likely to boost secure communications between armed forces personnel

Already established as space power, India did it once again as it launched successfully country’s most powerful, home-made communications satellite till date.

The launch was from Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh.

Christened GSAT-6A, the satellite was launched on board the heavyweight GSLV rocket

The 2066-kg satellite, which cost around Rs. 270 crore, will be able to send and receive signals from hand-held devices and is most likely to boost secure communications between armed forces personnel in the remotest part of the country.

The rocket also tested a new engine and it will eventually be used for India’s Moon mission, possible later this year.
