Photos: PSLV Build-Up for IRNSS-1I Launch

A Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle is assembled atop the First Launch Pad at the Satish Dhawan Space Center on India’s east coast in preparation for liftoff with the IRNSS-1I satellite to replenish India’s navigation satellite constellation that was left diminished by a series of atomic clock failures on its original members and the failure to deliver a replacement satellite in 2017. The PSLV launch campaign was performed as part of parallel campaigns with a GSLV that departed from Sriharikota just two weeks before IRNSS-1I was planned to launch.
