As soon as the PSLV C48 was launched from the first launch pad of Sriharikota, India moved towards space and made another history in its name. The countdown for the launch of PSLV C48 was started yesterday evening i.e. Tuesday at 4.40 pm. ISRO launched India’s Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle PSLV C48 at 3.25 pm. 9 other foreign satellites were launched simultaneously with the country’s latest spy satellite RISAT-2BR1. The RISAT-2BR1 was placed in its orbit around 17 minutes after launch and the remaining 9 commercial satellites were placed in their orbit on the 21st minute. India’s RISAT-2BR1 is a radar imaging satellite that will monitor the Earth. The satellite weighs 628 kg. This launch was the fiftieth PSLV launch of ISRO’s PSLV version. It was launched from the first launch pad of Sriharikota Rocket Port in Andhra Pradesh.
The RISAT-2BR1 was placed in an orbit of 576 km. The age of the mission will be five years. Let us tell you that ISRO recently launched Cartosat 3 on November 27 with which 13 other foreign satellites were sent into space. Cartosat 3 is called Spy in the Sky. Which is a third generation satellite and capable of monitoring the Earth completely. It is also beneficial for the army because this satellite is watching every activity of the enemy.

The ISRO RiSAT2BR1 satellite was launched via PSLV-C48 QL rocket. Also, 6 satellites of America, Israel, Japan and Italy were also launched with this rocket. This was the 75th launch mission of ISRO. The 50th flight of PSLV. It was also the sixth flight of this year. The second flight of PSLV QL version.
RiSAT-2BR1 will work both day and night. It is a satellite operating on microwave frequency. Hence it is called Radar Imaging Satellite. This satellite can work in any season. Also, it will be able to take pictures even beyond the clouds. But these pictures will not be as they come from the camera. Apart from the country’s armies, it will also help the agriculture, forest and disaster management departments.
RiSAT-2BR1’s camera is capable of taking photos even with clouds
This technology of RiSAT-2BR1 is different from the technology of Cartosat 3 Satellite because the camera of RiSAT-2BR1 is capable of taking pictures even by penetrating clouds which Cartosat 3 will not be able to do. However, according to ISRO sources, the camera resolution of RiSAT-2BR1 will also be exactly the same as Cartosat 3 i.e. will be able to take pictures of the same high resolution. Day or night, rain or fog RiSAT-2BR1 will help the army with its specialties. Not only this, every activity of the enemy can be fully monitored so that in the coming days, ISRO will launch satellites of this series as soon as possible.
Let us also tell you that most of the satellites that have been launched this year, most of them have been sent for military purposes only. This is why ISRO is launching record satellite after succession. Soon ISRO will launch the RiSAT-2BR2 of this series through PSLV C49. It is being told that it will also be launched by this month or January.
Monitoring of boundaries through satellite
After the terrorist attacks on Mumbai on 26/11, the technology of the initial RISAT satellite was changed significantly. After these attacks, the borders are being monitored through this satellite. Infiltration is being monitored completely. Also, this satellite is used in anti-terror activities. Earlier, with the help of Cartosat series satellites, India carried out surgical strikes and Balakot strikes. This series and now with the help of RiSAT-2BR1 and other satellites of this series, is fully capable of providing pictures of every speed method to the army, it can be said that the enemy will not be saved from this intelligence eye in India’s space.
