The INSAT-3DS is an advanced meteorological satellite developed by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). It is scheduled for launch in February 2024 aboard the GSLV-F14 rocket. As a successor to the INSAT-3D and INSAT-3DR satellites, INSAT-3DS aims to enhance meteorological monitoring capabilities in India. The satellite, with a lift-off mass of 2,275 kg, includes state-of-the-art payloads such as a 6-channel Imager, a 19-channel Sounder, a Data Relay Transponder (DRT), and a Satellite Aided Search and Rescue (SAS&R) transponder. These instruments will improve weather forecasting and provide early warnings for natural disasters, thereby bolstering disaster management in India. The development and launch of INSAT-3DS mark a significant step forward in India’s meteorological observation capabilities.
