NEW DELHI: Eight communication satellites were launched by India’s space agency ISRO over the last four years that carried transponders in various frequency bands of C, extended C, Ku, Ka and S for telecommunications, broadcast and mobile communication services.

Navigation satellites were part of the indigenous constellation NavIC, India’s own regional navigation system. Navigation satellites carried navigation payloads in L and S-bands for providing position, navigation and timing services.

Earth Observation satellites are used for deriving inputs for natural resource management, disaster management, cartographic applications, weather, climate and ocean studies.
