After a series of delays, the elite Indian Space Research Organization is now all set to launch the GSAT-11 satellite. This satellite will be launched from French Guiana on November 30.

The geosynchronous satellite-11 (GSAT) is the heaviest and most powerful satellite of India. It was supposed to be launched in June, but the launch was delayed due to technical problems.

GSAT-11 carries around 40 transponders in the Ku-band and the Ka-band frequencies which enables the satellite to provide high-speed bandwidth connectivity.

In March, the ISRO lost contact with GSAT-6A satellite which was a major setback for the organization. This time, they wanted the satellite well prepared before carrying out the mission.
