GSAT-3, also known as EDUSAT, was a communications satellite which was launched on 20 September 2004 by the Indian Space Research Organisation. EDUSAT is the first Indian satellite built exclusively to serve the educational sector. It is mainly intended to meet the demand for an interactive satellite-based distance education system for the country. EDUSAT carries five Ku band transponders providing spot beams, one Ku band transponder providing a national beam and six extended C band transponders providing national coverage beams.

  • GSAT-3, also known as EDUSAT, was a communications satellite which was launched on 20 September 2004 by the Indian Space Research Organisation. EDUSAT is the first Indian satellite built exclusively to serve the educational sector. It is mainly intended to meet the demand for an interactive satellite-based distance education system for the country. EDUSAT carries five Ku band transponders providing spot beams, one Ku band transponder providing a national beam and six extended C band transponders providing national coverage beams. EDUSAT was successfully launched into a Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit on the first operational launch of the Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle, which flew from the First Launch Pad at the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota. EDUSAT was initially placed into a transfer orbit with a perigee of 180 kilometres (110 mi) and an apogee of 35,985 kilometres (22,360 mi) and a period of 10.5 hours, inclined at 19.2 degrees to the equator. EDUSAT was decommissioned in September 2010 and relocated to a graveyard orbit. (en)
  • EDUSAT ou GSAT-3 est un satellite de télécommunications placé en orbite géostationnaire en septembre 2004 qui a été développé par l'agence spatiale indienne (ISRO). EDUSAT est entièrement consacré à la diffusion sur le territoire de l'Inde de cours d'enseignement à distance interactifs. Le satellite, construit par l'ISRO, fait partie de la famille INSAT dont le premier exemplaire a été lancé en 1983. Sa charge utile est composée de 5 répéteurs en bande Ku, 1 répéteur en bande K et 6 répéteurs en bande C. Il pèse 1,95 tonne avec son moteur d'apogée. Le satellite a été mis en orbite par un lanceur indien GSLV. Il est placé sur une position située à 74° de longitude Est qu'il partage avec les satellites KALPANA-1 et INSAT-3C. (fr)
  • O Edusat (também conhecido por GSAT-3) foi um satélite de comunicação geoestacionário indiano da série GSAT que está localizado na posição orbital de 74 graus de longitude leste, ele foi construído e também é operado pela Organização Indiana de Pesquisa Espacial (ISRO). O satélite foi baseado na plataforma I-2K (I-2000) Bus e sua expectativa de vida útil era de 7 anos. O mesmo saiu de serviço em dezembro de 2010. (pt)
