India to get another 'eye in the sky' on May 22



NEW DELHI: India is set to get another 'eye in the sky' as Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) will launch its latest radar imaging satellite (Risat-2BR1) from Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh on May 22.


Risat-2BR1 is much more advanced than the previous Risat-series satellite. "Its launch is due on May 22. Though the new satellite looks same as the old one from outside, its configuration is different from the earlier one launched. The new satellite, therefore, has enhanced surveillance and imaging capabilities," a source in Isro told TOI. Risat's X-band synethic aperture radar (SAR) possesses day-night as well as all-weather monitoring capability. The radar can even penetrate clouds and zoom up to a resolution of 1 metre (means it can distinguish between two objects separated by 1 m distance).


"The Risat satellite can take images of a building or an object on the earth at least 2 to 3 times a day," the source said. Therefore, it can help keep an eye on the activities of jihadi terror camps in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) and infiltrators at terror launchpads along the LoC.

消息称:“Risat卫星每天至少可以拍摄2-3次地面建筑物或物体的图像。” 可以帮助密切关注巴占克什米尔(PoK)圣战恐怖分子营地的活动,以及实际控制线沿线的渗透者。

The new imaging satellite will boost all-weather surveillance capabilities of Indian security forces and will help detect any potential threat around the Indian borders. As the satellite can also track hostile ships at sea, it can be used to keep a hawk-eye on Chinese naval vessels in the Indian Ocean and Pakistani warships in the Arabian Sea. The images from old Risat-series satellites were earlier used to plan the surgical strike in 2016 and the air strike on a Jaish camp in Pakistan's Balakot this year. Risat also enhanced Isro's capability for disaster management applications.

Amazing Space Research activities are very much commendable. Just imagine, ISRO & Scientists are same with tremendous dedicated workforce achieving very spectacular results. Only difference is change of guard at center & the sources of everything is PM, Modi. From the day one in his office he gave positive signals to go ahead with any mission will make our India very strong & powerful. I, as as Indian feel immensely proud & safe under this versatile NaMo Govt. My hats off to you Modiji for building this nation strong .

Agree fully - and a very well written popular scientific article and also agree with this comment. Hope the stupid casteists of UP, and the criminal media that pampers this stupidity can see this light.

Narendra Damodardas Modi is the best thing that happened to India, since independence. However, the responsibility for keeping India backward all these years rests with the people of the country; they are the ones that elected the worthless Congress, again and again

Can govt and ISRO permanently position a mini satellite dedicated to monitor naxals in Gadchiroli, Chandrapur region, including part of Chhattisgarh? It would save lot of lives and begin the end game of home-grown extremism. Any thoughts ?

印度政府和印度空间研究组织能否发射一颗小卫星,专门用于监测恰蒂斯加尔邦部分地区的纳萨尔人? 这将拯救许多生命,并终结本土极端主义。
