CHENNAI: The Indian space agency will be using its Radar Imaging Satellite (RISAT) that can see through the clouds to locate the missing Indian Air Force (IAF) plane+ that went missing on Friday morning with 29 people on board, said its chief on Saturday.
"We will be using RISAT to locate the missing aircraft. The satellite can take pictures both during the day and night. It can see through the clouds," Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) Chairman AS Kiran Kumar told IANS.
He said Isro's satellites could be tilted to some extent to look at a different place in times of need.

If ISRO shows the technical skill to track the missing plane then the world will salute our scientists. Best wishes ISRO.
The world already knows and appreciates Indian scientists. These satellites were launched in 2009 and 2012.

These scientists are trying there level best to detect
Please break the news of finding the plane soon.
if we not able to find a aeroplane than how we track an incoming missile ?
Without wasting any more time, it would be wise to seek US help to locate the lost plane
why waste time. every second is precious call israil''s laser based rescue team positively they will do it. best wishes.
They havnt used it so far? Isnt that standard operating procedure?
Scrap bloody russian planes; the flying coffins. 13 AN 32 lost since 1986.
why after 1 day by ISRO and why are they waiting for instructions? It is a shame if its due to red bureaucracy. ISRO should automatically scan the skies..
This is the need of the hour and ISRO chipping in will help search operations greatly. We are hoping the crash site and wreckage can be located soon.
so for what you have been waiting till now.Isro another hype.
