ISRO launches ‘cloud-proof’ earth observation spy satellite RISAT-2B to keep an eye on Pakistan


Indian space research agency (ISRO) today successfully launched an earth observation spy satellite RISAT-2B that can take high resolution images of the earth during day and night, and also under cloudy conditions.

The introduction of all-weather RISAT-2B (Radar Imaging Satellite-2B) would enhance the country’s surveillance capabilities many times. The satellite is equipped with a synthetic aperture radar that can take pictures in any condition.

This is a very, very important mission for India. It is an excellent satellite with hi-fi earth observation (capabilities),” ISRO Chairman K Sivan told PTI.

The spy satellite has a life span of five years and would also be used for military surveillance. The introduction of a new RISAT series satellite will enhance India’s defence capabilities to monitor the cross border activities.   Read More
