The INSAT-3DS has communication payloads like the Data Relay Transponder (DRT) and receives data on various data collection platforms and automatic weather stations.
The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) has announced that the GSLV-F14/INSAT-3DS mission will be launched on Saturday, 17 February 2024 at 17:30 IST from SDSC-SHAR, Sriharikota.

“In its 16th mission, the GSLV aims to deploy the insat-3DS meteorological satellite into the Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit (GTO). Subsequent orbit-raising maneuvers will ensure that the satellite is positioned in a Geo-stationary Orbit", the ISRO said in a post on X.

The satellite seeks to significantly improve meteorological monitoring as well as enhance telecommunications, broadcasting, and search and rescue operations.
Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV) is a three-stage 51.7 m launch vehicle having a liftoff mass of 420 tonnes.
INSAT-3DS is specifically designed to provide advanced meteorological observations, enhancing weather forecasting capabilities. It is also equipped with cutting-edge payloads, including a six-channel Imager and 19-channel Sounder for meteorological observations.
