What is GSAT-7 Rukmini?
While the military gap between India and China at the time of the Doklam tray continues, China on Tuesday returned against the observation of Defense Minister Arun Jaitley, even saying that China is not it was in 1962.
Jaitley had responded to China’s previous comment that India should draw historical lessons from 1962. Amid the verbal duel, China appears to have deployed a submarine in the Indian Ocean region (IOR).
According to a report published in India today, Tuesday, China has implemented a Yuan diesel class traditional electric submarine in the IOR. The Indian Navy seems to have taken up the movement of the ship in the region recently.
But the Indian Navy has kept a token close to the Chinese submarines that enter the region through its own GSAT-7 military satellite. It was launched September 29, 2013.
With the help of this multi-band military communication satellite, also known as Rukmini, the Indian Navy can practically extend its blue water capacity and minimize vis-à-vis other foreign satellites that provide addiction information to their ships .
What GSK-7 Rukmini?
Bhutan, Bhutan China India Chumbi Valley, China and Bhutan, India, China, India, China, Lhasa-Yadong and a branch in Beijing-Lhasa that can move quickly. The Chinese troops to Nathu La.
An approximate weight of 2,650 kg Rukmini was the first military communications satellite developed by the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) for Indian Defense Forces, the Indian Navy is the primary user.
Built September 29, 2013, Rukmini was also the last of the ISRO’s four fourth-generation satellites to have at least 2000 nautical miles on the IOR. Rukmini was launched in early August 30, 2013 on top of an Ariane 5 ECA from Kourou in French Guiana. This has given India a fundamental axis of maritime safety.
How is it executed?
Rukmini successfully placed himself in a geosynchronous orbit about 36,000 km from Earth, almost five days before its launch after at least three orbital maneuvers at the ISRO control center at Hassan in Karnataka.
Antennas 2.5 tons of Rukmini that included ultra-high frequency helical antenna were deployed before stabilizing in its three axes in the orbit. The Rs 185 crore Rukmini was launched during a 50 minute launch window, which began at 2 am, and was broadcast live by Doordarshan.
The GSAT-7 is supposed to significantly improve maritime safety in India a large section on the western and eastern slopes of the Indian Ocean region, among others.
Operational operation (Tropex) in the Bay of Bengal was in 2014, when Rukmini was able to network a large number of 60 ships and at least 75 aircraft effortlessly.
The Indian Navy wants to use Rukmini primarily to cover activities up the Straits of Malacca to the east and the Straits of Anmorz West. The GSAT-7 also has an approximate 2,000 nautical mile imprint on the IOR.
According to ISRO, Rukmini or GSAT-7 is an advanced communications satellite that will provide a wide range of spectrum services, from low-speed voice to high-speed data communication. Scientists say their cargo is designed to provide communication capabilities to users in a broad oceanic region including the surface of India.
