    INSAT-3DR, with a designed mission life of ten years, will provide service continuity to earlier meteorological missions and further augment the capability to provide various meteorological, search and rescue services.

    After the INSAT-3DR is placed in orbit, scientists at Master Control Facility at Hassan, Karnataka would perform the initial orbit raising manoeuvres and later place it in circular geostationary orbit.
