India's primary space launch center, located on the east coast of the peninsula with a firing sector over the Bay of Bengal. In use from 1971 to present.

The Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SDSC) SHAR, is located at 80 km north of Chennai on the east coast of India. The facilities at SDSC include:

  • Mobile Service Tower, Umbilical Tower and Launch Pedestal
  • Solid Motor Preparation Facility
  • Subsystem Preparation Facility
  • Hardware Storage Facility
  • Liquid/Cryogenic Propellant Storage and Transfer Facility
  • Stage Preparation Facility for Cryogenic Stage
  • Automatic Checkout and Control for Propellant Filling
  • Safety and Fire Fighting Systems
  • Satellite Preparation Facility
  • Launch Control Centre and Mission Control Centre
  • Precision C-band Radars and S-band Radar for tracking
  • Telecommand System
  • Intercommunication, CCTV system, Data Links, Range Timing System, Real Time Systems and Specialist Display System, Meteorology and Technical Photography
  • TM data receiving stations

A modern Second Launch Pad (SLP) was awaiting commissioned in 2005. SLP was to help to increase the frequency of launches from SDSC. The new facility was designed to reduce the occupancy time for the integration and launch.

Sriharikota was known to have been used for at least 358 launches from 1971 to 2008.

Minimum Inclination: 44.0 degrees. Maximum Inclination: 47.0 degrees.

Location: Sriharikota Range, Andhra Pradesh.
Longitude: 80.2351 deg.
Latitude: 13.7374 deg.

Launch delayed following pad abort on March 28. First launch of the Indian GSLV launch vehicle. GSat 1 was an Indian, 1500 kg scaled-dow) test model of a future geosynchronous communications spacecraft with a 440 N ISRO liquid apogee motor, and S-band and C-band ommunications transponders, similar to the Insat-2 satellites. The motor for the cryogenic, hydrogen-oxygen upper stage had been purchased from Russia but the design had never flown in space before. The stage cut off without providing the required delta-V - preliminary analysis revealed a shortfall of 0.5% in the thrust. An attempt was made to reach a usable orbit using the station-keeping motor of the GSAT satellite itself. After a series of burns, GSat 1 ran out of propellant - 10 kg more fuel would have been required to reach a stationary orbit. In the end, the parameters of the drifting (about 13 deg/day) orbit were period 23 hours, apogee 35,665 km, perigee 33,806 km, and inclination 0.99 deg. The fully functional transponders and transmitters on board were deactivated on instructions of the International Telecommunications Union. As of 4 September 2001 located at 54.88 deg E drifting at 13.212 deg E per day. As of 2007 Mar 10 located at 50.16W drifting at 12.778E degrees per day.

USAF Sat Cat: 28417 . COSPAR: 2004-036A. Apogee: 35,801 km (22,245 mi). Perigee: 35,772 km (22,227 mi). Inclination: 0.1000 deg. Period: 1,436.10 min. Gsat-3 / Edusat was the first Indian satellite built exclusively for the educational sector. It was mainly intended to meet the demand for an interactive satellite based distance education system for India. Edusat was launched into a geosynchronous transfer orbit by its launch vehicle. Edusat was to reach geostationary orbit by firing, in stages, its on board Liquid Apogee Motor (LAM). In geostationary orbit the satellite was to be co-located with Kalpana-1 and Insat-3C satellites at 74 deg East longitude.

    Compared to earlier satellites in the Insat series, Edusat used several new technologies. The spacecraft was built around the I-2K standardised spacecraft bus. It had a multiple spot beam antenna with a 1.2 m reflector to direct Ku band spot beams, a dual core bent heat pipe for thermal control, high efficiency multi-junction solar cells and an improved thruster configuration for optimised propellant use for orbit and orientation maintenance. The satellite used radiatively cooled Ku-band Travelling Wave Tube Amplifiers and a dielectrically loaded C-band demultiplexer for its communication payloads. Edusat carried five Ku-band transponders providing spot beams, one Ku-band transponder providing a national beam and six Extended C-band transponders with a national coverage beam. It was to join the Insat system that already provided more than 130 transponders in C-band, Extended C-band and Ku-band for a variety of telecommunication and television services.
