Preparations are underway to launch the Earth Observation Satellite GIAT-1 at Satish Dhawan Space Center (SDSC) SHAR, Sriharikota. The launch of this satellite tv for pc is anticipated by the top of this month. It might be launched with the Geostationary Launch Vehicle (GSLV-Mark-2F-10).
According to extremely positioned sources of the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), this satellite tv for pc might be situated in a single place in geostationary orbit and can monitor the whole nation. That is, this satellite tv for pc might be dwell from Geostationary Orbit (Geo Stationary Orbit) and the land space of the nation might be acquired in actual time every time it must take footage. <! –
After the operation of this satellite tv for pc over the Indian subcontinent, the nation's borders may also be monitored constantly. Usually distant sensing satellites attain there solely after a sure time interval after passing over a specific area of the nation. The period of this mission might be seven years.
Since the Earth is transferring, the satellite tv for pc has to attend for it to succeed in the identical space whereas circling in its orbit. However, GIAT-1 might be in such an orbit of the Earth from the place it’ll all the time keep watch over the whole subcontinent. ISRO says that this satellite tv for pc is essential from the viewpoint of climate prediction and pure catastrophe. However, consultants say that infiltration within the Indian border may also be monitored by this satellite tv for pc.
Hubble telescope-like telescope
The satellite tv for pc has 5 forms of particular pay-loads (units). The satellite tv for pc has a variety of imaging cameras with filters corresponding to seen, close to infrared and thermal imaging. These cameras even have a 700 mm Richie-Chrytian system telescope, much like NASA's Hubble telescope. Apart from these, there are lots of high-resolution cameras that might be managed by the satellite tv for pc's on board system. This satellite tv for pc can take footage at a decision of 50 meters to 1.5 kilometers. The satellite tv for pc weighs round 2100 kg and might be launched with GSLV Mark-2.
Tracking of the Gaganyaan mission as nicely
According to extremely positioned sources of ISRO, the satellite tv for pc has been despatched to Sriharikota the place the method of its integration with the rocket will begin quickly. Another satellite tv for pc of this collection, GISAT-2, may also be launched. During the launch of the unmanned mission Gaganyaan, each these satellites might be saved in fixed contact with the astronauts and so they may also be tracked. GIISAT-2 can be anticipated to be launched this 12 months.
