India will get an 'eye in the air' on 22 May

NEW DELHI: India Will Be Another ' Getting Eye In The Air ' As () Will Launch His Newest Radar Image Satellite (Risat-2BR1) May 22.

Risat-2BR1 Is Much More Advanced Than The Previous Risat-series Satellite. The Launch Is Scheduled For May 22. Although The New Satellite Looks The Same From The Outside As The Old One, The Configuration Is Different From The Previous One Launched. The New Satellite Therefore Has Improved Monitoring And Imaging Capabilities, A Source In Isro Told The TOI. Risat ' S X-band Synethic Aperture Radar (SAR) Features Day And Weather Monitoring. The Radar Can Even Pierce Clouds And Zoom To A Resolution Of 1 Meter (means That It Can Distinguish Two Objects Apart At 1 M Distance).

It Can Make At Least 2 To 3 Times A Day Images Of A Building Or Object On Earth, The Source Said. Therefore, It Can Help Keep Activities In The Holes Of Jihadist Terrorist Camps In The Pakistan-occupied Part Of Kashmir (POK) And Infiltrators At Terror Launch Platforms Along The LoC.

The New Imaging Satellite Will Enhance The All-weather Monitoring Capabilities Of Indian Security Forces And Will Help Detect Potential Threats Around Indian Borders. Because The Satellite Can Also Track Enemy Ships At Sea, It Can Be Used To Monitor Chinese Hawk Vessels Indian Ocean And Pakistani Warships In The. The Images From The Old Risat Series Satellites Were Previously Used To Plan The 2016 Surgical Attack And The Air Strike At A Jaish Camp In Pakistan ' S This Year. Risat Also Improved The Power Of Isro ' S For Disaster Management Applications.

Following The 26/11 Terrorist Attacks In Mumbai In 2008, The Risat-2 Satellite Program Took Precedence Over Risat-1 Because Of The Advanced Radar System, Manufactured In Israel, And Was Launched On April 20, 2009 To Increase The Security Capabilities Of Security Forces. From A Height Of 536 Km, The Satellite Monitors Indian Borders 24x7 And Helps Security Guards To Keep Infiltrators In The Holes.

The Synethical Diaphragm Radar Uses The Movement Of The Radar Antenna Over A Target Area To Provide A Finer Spatial Resolution Than Conventional Ray Scanning Radars. The Distance That The SAR Satellite Travels Over A Target In Time That The Radar Pulses Need To Return To The Antenna, Creates The Large Synthetic Antenna Opening. Usually, The Larger The Aperture, The Higher The Image Resolution, Regardless Of Whether The Aperture Is Physical (a Large Antenna) Or Synthetic (a Moving Antenna).
