ISRO Successfully Launched CARTOSAT-3, India's Most Advanced And Complex Imaging Satellite

According to K Sivan, the chief of ISRO, he is glad that the PSLV-C47 was sent successfully to orbit bringing with its 13 other satellites

A rocket of India with 14 satellites onboard was launched into orbit yesterday. It belongs to ISRO (Indian Space Research Organisation), and it is a Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle.

Among these 14 cargos, one is an advanced earth mapping and imaging satellite called CARTOSAT-3. The other 13 are the U.S commercial nano-satellites.

CARTOSAT-3 is the ninth in the row and was sent into orbit from Satish Dhawan Space Centre’s second launch pad at Sriharikota, at 9.28 A.M. Sriharikota has been the venue for 73 other launches of this kind.

According to K Sivan, the chief of ISRO, he is glad that the PSLV-C47 was sent successfully to orbit bringing with its 13 other satellites. CARTOSAT-3 is the civilian satellite with the highest resolution.

CARTOSAT-3, so far, is the most advanced and complex imaging satellite. 17 minutes and 46 seconds after the lift-off, it was sent to orbit. This is the mission done right after the launch of Chandrayaan 2. The fate of the Vikram lunar lander was announced recently as it crashed on the Moon surface due to an issue with the braking system.

According to ISRO, the IRS series will be replaced by the satellite that was launched yesterday. CARTOSAT-3’s panchromatic resolution is 0.25 meters. The agency said that this mission was a big leap from the last payloads of the same CARTOSAT series.

CARTOSAT-3 will meet the demands of information for land cover, coastal land use, urban planning, and infrastructure development in rural areas.

ISRO said that the satellite will be in use in space for five years. This follows the Chandrayaan-2 mission on the 22 of July, which brought the Vikram lander on the Moon. However, it failed to perform soft land.
