ISRO to make new stage for GSLV

The high‐level task team constituted to probe the August 19 failure of the Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle‐D5 (GSLV‐D5) is yet to submit the final report on the reasons for the glitch, but the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has decided to assemble a new second stage for the rocket. A senior ISRO official, while stating that the exact date for the launch of GSLV‐D5 can only be set in November, added that the launcher would be launched into space in December, carrying the GSAT‐14. “Going by the availability of hardware and components, the GSLV assembly and checkout is expected to be completed at the vehicle assembly building by the first week of December,” said a note issued by ISRO.
