"Congratulations to the dedicated scientists of ISRO for the successful launch of GSLV – MKIII D1/GSAT-19 mission", he wrote.
GSAT-19 satellite has a lift-off mass of 3136 kg that was configured around the ISRO’s standard I-3K bus. GSAT-19 carries a Geostationary Radiation Spectrometer (GRASP) payload to monitor and study the nature of charged particles and the influence of space radiation on satellites and their electronic components. GSAT 19, after its separation from the GSLV MkIII in GTO, will use its own propulsion system.
