Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on Friday has successfully launched its Cartosat-2 series satellite weighing 712 kg from the Sriharikota spaceport.

An ISRO official said in a statement, “It can recognize objects within that square (0.6 m by 0.6 m).”

Adding further to this he said, “Defence surveillance will get a leg-up. It can be used in identifying terrorist camps and bunkers… some formations”.

It was believed that the India’s ‘eye in the sky’ is set to become sharper and wider after the launch of the Cartosat-2 series satellite.

While stating the need of the third satellite official said, “The revisit time is the one which determines your data accessibility. More the number of satellites, the better and shorter revisit time you will have and more data you will get”.
