Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO)'s INSAT-3DR will be launched into the Geostationary Transfer Orbit (GTO) on Thursday from Sriharikota and is India's tenth Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV) flight GSLV-F05.

It is supposed to provide a variety of meteorological services to India.

The advanced weather satellite weighs 2,211kg and is designed to inject 2 - 2.5 ton class of satellites into GTO.

Here are a few pictures of its configuration from ISRO's official website.
