The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) has successfully launched its new spy satellite RISAT-2BR1 and nine foreign satellites in the country today. According to ISRO, the rocket PSLV-C48 (PSLV-C48) will fly with RISAT-2 BR1. RISAT-2BR1 is a radar imaging surveillance satellite. The weight of this satellite is 628 kg.
According to experts, this satellite is very special in terms of security of Indian borders. It is being called the second intelligence eye of India. India’s radar imaging strength will increase manifold after the RISAT-2 BR1 satellite is placed in the Earth’s orbit. With this help, the planning of monitoring Indian borders and making their security impregnable will be easy.
The defense intelligence sensor installed in RISAT 2BR1 has been made in India only. Due to the presence of X band SAR capability in this satellite, this satellite will be able to take clear pictures in all seasons even if there is no darkness in the night.
From this satellite, very clear pictures of any particular area can be taken. It will take pictures of about a hundred km area and send it to the ground where these pictures can be analyzed.
It has been specially designed to prevent infiltration on the borders, especially from Pakistan. This satellite will also be helpful in giving accurate information about the terrorist gathering crossing the Indian border. This is the 50th launch of PSLV. Apart from this, the satellite will also be supported during times of agriculture, forest, and disaster.
