With better capability and latest technology, the satellite left Sriharikota center at 9:28 am. ISRO has said that recently formed commercial arm New Space India Limited had already tied up to launch 13 US nanosatellites. Cartosat-3 weighs around 1625 kg. It was placed in orbit 509 km away. Cartosat-3 will be five years old.
Cartosat Earth is observation satellite. From this, a clear picture of the Earth can be taken. Its picture will be so clear that the time of the clock tied in the hands of a person can also be seen clearly. Its job is mainly to monitor India’s land from space. ISRO has earlier launched two surveillance satellites in April and May. Surveillance satellite RISAT-2B was launched on May 22 and EMISAT on April 1. The main task of both is to keep an eye on the radar of enemies.
