SARTHAK IAS

On Friday morning by the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), the cartosat-2 satellite series by the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV-38) from Satish Dhawan Space Center (Sriharikota) along with thirty other co-passenger satellites Has also been launched.

It has four stages of PSLV with strap-on motors. (PSLV XL Extended) was the 17th flight.

This rocket is 320 tonne, in which the solid propellant was used in the first and third phases, while liquid propellants were used in the second and fourth phases.

955 kg weights, 31 satellites 505 km Polar sun synchronous located at a distance will be installed in the orbit. This will be the number of second largest satellites launched by ISRO simultaneously.

The PSLV-C38 payload also includes a nanosatellite, which was developed by Nurul Islam University located in Kanyakumari.

Cartosat-2 has been designed for five years.

Satellite imagery use

In cartographic applications.

For the use and regulation of coastal land.

Road network monitoring

Water distribution

In the mapping of land use

For applications of Geographic Information System (GIS)

Satellite of other countries

Other payloads, which include 29 Nanosatellites, have been created by 14 countries, including Austria, Belgium, Chile, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania, Slovakia, UK, and America. The launch of satellites in other countries has been done under the commercial agreements between Antrix Corporation (commercial unit of ISRO) and international customers.

Cartosat-2 is an earth observation satellite, weighing 712 kg, which is an advanced remote sensing satellite. A cutting-edge state-of-the-art parchmentative (PAN) camera is also added along with cartosat-2, which will provide black and white photos of the visible region of the electromagnetic spectrum of the earth.
