Radar imaging satellites will help in military surveillance. This satellite can also capture images at night.
The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) will launch the satellite from Satish Dhawan Space Center in Sriharikota this afternoon at 3: 2 minutes. Preparations are underway. This will be ISRO’s first satellite launch in the Corona era. The PSLV-C49 rocket will carry the country’s radar imaging satellite EOS01 and 9 other foreign satellites.
What is special about EOS01?
It is a radar imaging satellite. Its synthetic aperture radar will also be able to see across clouds. It will be able to take photos day and night and in all seasons. This will help keep an eye on the country’s borders from the sky. In addition, agriculture-forestry will also support soil moisture detection and disaster management.
LIVE will be telecast on social media
If today’s launch is successful, ISRO’s overseas satellite sending figure will be 328. This will be the 51st mission of ISRO. ISRO will telecast it on its website, YouTube channel, Facebook and Twitter page. S Somnath, director of the Vikram Sarabhai Space Research Center, had said that after the PSLV-C49, there are plans to launch the PSLV-C50 in December. After one launch, it takes about 30 days to prepare for another.
