The launch of PSLV-C48 rocket was done at 3:25 pm
Radar imaging will be several times better than RISAT-2BR1
Indian Space Research Institute (ISRO) launched the Indian satellite RISAT-2BR1 and 9 satellites from four other countries at 3:25 pm. The launch was done through PSLV-C48 rocket from Satish Dhawan Space Center in Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh.
RISAT-2 BR1 Radar Imaging is Earth Observation Satellite. It can take clear pictures even in clouds and darkness. With the help of Earth imaging cameras and radar technology, it will be helpful for the army in times of intrusive maneuvers.
RISAT-2 BR1 and 9 satellites from four other countries were successfully placed in their respective orbit.
35 cm away will recognize two things
RISAT-2 BR1 will operate for five years. This will make radar imaging manifold better. It has a camera of 0.35 m resolution, i.e. it can identify two things separately and clearly located at a distance of 35 cm.
It will monitor terrorist activities and infiltration in the border areas. This will help all the three armies and security forces. It weighs 628 kg.
Security agencies need 4 resets
ISRO will also launch RISAT-2 BR2, the next satellite of the RISAT series, this month. After this, another satellite will be launched. However, their date is not fixed yet. Security agencies need at least four resets in space for continuous monitoring at any one place in a day.
All four satellites will be useful during an encounter or intrusion. As of 6 March, 13 missions of ISRO are in queue. These include 6 large vehicle missions, while 7 are satellite missions.

3 students from Israeli satellite high school made
The Israeli satellite to be launched is named Duchifat-3. It is composed by 2 students from the Herzliya Science Center in Israel and Shar Hanegev High School. It is only 2.3 kg. It is an educational satellite.
The camera on it will be used for earth imaging, while the radio transponder will be used to research air and water pollution and monitor forests. The three Israeli students who make it will also be present at the Satish Dhawan Center at the time of launch.
The third RISAT-2 BR2 of this series will also be launched this month.
After the launch of RISAT-2 BR1, ISRO will launch the third RISAT-2 BR2 of this series by the end of this month. After this, there will be another satellite launch. Security agencies will need at least four resets in space for continuous monitoring at any one place in a day. In such a situation, these bait will be used by the satellite at the time of an encounter or intrusion.
This 50th mission of PSLV
This will be the 50th launching of the PSLV rocket. It will be the 75th rocket to be launched from Sriharikota. This is the 37th launch from the first launch pad of the Satish Dhawan Space Center.
