GSLV-D6 succesfully launches GSAT-6 into the transfer orbit
GSLV-D6 is the ninth flight of India's Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV). It is also the fifth developmental flight of GSLV. This is the third time the indigenously developed Cryogenic Upper Stage (CUS) is being carried on-board during a GSLV flight. GSLV-D6 flight is significant since it intends to continue the testing of CUS. GSLV is designed to inject 2 ton class of communication satellites into Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit (GTO).

GSLV-D6 was launched from the Second Launch Pad at Satish Dhawan Space Centre SHAR (SDSC SHAR), Sriharikota.

GSLV-D6 launched 2117 kg GSAT-6, an advanced communication satellite, into a GTO. GSAT-6 will provide S-band communication services in the country. After reaching GTO, GSAT-6 will use its own propulsion system to reach its final geostationary orbital home and will be stationed 0 at 83 East longitude.

Missa inte GNSS USER MEET October 8, 2015
GNSS User Meet 2015 is jointly hosted by ISRO & AAI on the theme “Towards Self Reliance in Satellite Navigation”. India has entered into the realm of satellite-based navigation with its two pioneering projects GAGAN and IRNSS. With the APV 1.0 certification (by DGCA) of GAGAN and IRNSS demonstrating its independent positioning, the time is apt to bring together the navigation user community at a common platform.

The last date for paper submission is extended to 21st September
The last date for submission for Students competition extended to 21st September.
