EMISAT our eye in the sky


The most important among the 29 satellites put into orbit by Indian Space Organisation’s PSLV rocket on Monday was EMISAT, an intelligence satellite developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation(DRD). It will be an eye in the sky which will monitor enemy radar sites.

Reports quoting sources in the ISRO say this satellite, weighing 436 kg, has been placed in low earth orbit so it can monitor and locate enemy radar sites ,a job so far done by air planes. This satellite will give a space-based platform for surveillance.
