World news – IN – ISRO’s EOS-01 launch today! All you need to know about this earth observation satelliteen


India is set to send its earth observation satellite EOS-01 on Saturday afternoon This is the first space mission for the country in a year The satellite will be launched along with nine satellites from other countries by a PSLV rocket post 3 pm (IST) Last year in December, ISRO for the first time sent RISAT-2BR1, which was the first earth observation satellite similar to EOS-01 Post that, in January this year, India sent another communication satellite GSAT-30 in space which was done with the help of Ariane rocket launched from French Guiana

As the Coronavirus pandemic hit the nation, ISRO’s launch schedule was postponed It is to note that the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has planned around 20 satellite launches this fiscal This also included high profile missions like Aditya L1 which is India’s first exploratory mission to the Sun It also planned to launch Gaganyaan mission

To be sure, EOS-01 is a Radar Imaging Satellite (RISAT) aimed to work alongside RISAT-2B and RISAT-2BR1 that were launched last year Initially, EOS-01 was given the name- RISAT-2BR2 as it was supposed to complete the three-spacecraft constellation These satellites will help provide all-weather round-the-clock service with some high-resolution images Along with this, the earth observation satellite will help with mapping and monitoring land and forest, along with mapping of resources that include water, minerals Apart from this, the satellite will observe weather and climate, will do soil assessment, as well as geospatial contour mapping

Just like RISAT-2B and RISAT-2BR1, EOS-01 will also be using synthetic aperture radars in order to produce high-resolution images of the land A report by The Indian Express highlighted that radar imaging is quite useful as it remains unaffected by weather, fog, sunlight or clouds These satellites also operate at low wavelengths Therefore, the EOS series is considered best when it comes to monitoring urban landscape, imaging of agricultural or forest land

ISRO noted that EOS-01 applications will be used in the fields of agriculture, forestry and disaster management support Further, the radar images are also expected to be quite useful for military requirements
