This satellite is designed to provide more accurate meteorological data, helping India's weather agencies deliver better forecasts. It will monitor weather patterns over land and sea, aiding in disaster preparedness and response.

GSLV F14: The "Naughty Boy" Rocket

The GSLV F14 rocket, which will carry INSAT-3DS, has been nicknamed the "naughty boy" due to its past failures. With a failure rate of 40 per cent, it has encountered problems in six out of its fifteen flights. However, ISRO remains confident in its ability to successfully deploy the satellite.

Where to watch the launch

The INSAT-3DS launch will be broadcast live on ISRO's social media platforms. Additionally, viewers can tune in to DD National's social media and YouTube channels for live coverage of the event.

With enhanced meteorological capabilities, this satellite will contribute to improved weather forecasting and disaster management in the country.
