(ISRO) – India’s Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle, GSLV-F04, is scheduled to launch India’s latest communication satellite, INSAT-4CR, around 4.20 pm on Sunday, September 2, 2007 from Satish Dhawan Space Centre SHAR, Sriharikota. This will be the fifth flight of GSLV.

INSAT-4CR carries 12 high-power Ku-band transponders designed to provide Direct-to-home (DTH) television services, Video Picture Transmission (VPT) and Digital Satellite News Gathering (DSNG).

The launch campaign is progressing satisfactorily at SDSC SHAR. The satellite has already been integrated with the launch vehicle and on August 24, 2007, the launch vehicle was moved to the Second Launch Pad at Satish Dhawan Space Centre, Sriharikota.
