Chances Of Retrieving GSAT-6A Are Still Alive Says ISRO:- Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) Chairman Dr K Sivan clarified that the communication link with GSAT-6A went missing but they are trying their level best to re-establish the contact with the satellite which is well advanced. While speaking to the leading daily Times of India, K Sivan said "GSAT-6A launch was successful but it lost the communication. Isro was supposed to perform three orbit-raising manoeuvres to take the satellite from the launch orbit to the designated orbit. The second orbit was performed on Saturday and we are expecting to retain it soon".
The de-linking of signal from a satellite is quite common and GSAT-6A is expected to be back in loop soon. There are chances that the primary power failed and a back-up solar power can be used to re-establish the contact with GSAT-6A. An update is expected soon.
