ISRO Successfully Launches PSLV C47 Satellite

On Wednesday, The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) successfully launched advanced earth imaging and mapping satellite CARTOSAT-3 along with 13 other commercial nano-satellites for the US.

Following ISRO's Chandrayaan-2 mission on July 22, which failed to manage a soft landing on the moon, launches CARTOSAT-3 and 13 other commercial nano-satellites from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh.

However, this launch will enhance India's ability in high-resolution imaging and also reinforce India as a global launch destination for small satellites using its workhorse rocket Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle. The mission life of CARTOSAT-3 would be for five years, said the space research organization.

ISRO claimed that the payload has the competent of taking sharp resolution pictures of 0.25 meters in Panchromatic and 1-meter ground resolution or ground sample distance (GSD) in 4 Band Multispectral modes within 16 km.

The Indian space agency also alleged that Cartosat-3 has many new elements and technologies like highly agile structural platform, higher rate data handling, payload platform, and transmission systems, advanced onboard computer and new power electronics, dual gimbal antenna and others for more accurate data transmission.

According to the ISRO 2018-19 annual reports, the CARTOSAT-3 is a 3-axis agile satellite with a spatial resolution parameter of 0.25 m, advancement from the previous series, which had the parameter at less than 1 m.
