Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) is going to launch the meaning of Amberty Satellite on August 12. This Satellite is being called ‘Eye in the Sky’. Due to the Corona epidemic, ISRO’s activities are being expected to get the speed with this launch.
This Satellite will be launched from May 13 to 4 August at the morning of August 12 from the Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vacificel / F10 (GSLV) from the second launch pad of Satish Dhawan Space Center in Sriharikota. The final launch will depend on the conditions of the season.
What is this Eye in the Sky Satellite? What will it do? How will it launch? What will be the benefit out of this? Everything you need to know about this launch –
What is Earth Observation Satellite?
This satellite is also being called Geo Imaging Satellite-1 (GISAT-1). Through this, along with India, the borders of China and Pakistan can also be monitored. For this reason this satellite is also being called ‘Eye in the Sky’.
Minister of State for Space Department Jitendra Singh had recently told in reply to a question in Rajya Sabha that Earth Observation Satellite (EOS-03) will send 4-5 pictures of the entire country daily. With the help of this satellite, real-time monitoring of changes in water bodies, crops, storms, floods and forest cover will be possible.
This satellite will work as an advanced ‘Eye in the Sky’, that is, ISRO’s eye in the sky, after being installed 36 thousand km above the Earth. This satellite will be in sync with the rotation of the Earth, which will make it appear that it is stationary in one place.
It is capable of providing real-time information of a large area. This is very special, because other remote sensing satellites are in lower orbits and they return to a spot after regular intervals. In comparison, EOS-03 will photograph the country four-five times a day and send weather and climate change data to various agencies.
