India's GSAT 8 satellite will be ready for communications duties by mid-June 2011 to start a 12-year mission beaming broadcast and navigation signals. It will be parked along the equator at 55 degrees east longitude after a series of rocket burns to guide GSAT 8 into the correct position in space. The spacecraft will augment India's INSAT communications satellite fleet. GSAT 8 will be used for direct-to-home broadcasting, data collection, news-gathering and other domestic needs. The satellite also carries a radio navigation instrument called GAGAN to augment GPS navigation signals. It is the first of multiple satellites with the GAGAN payload, which is designed to improve air navigation in India.
