New Delhi, February 21: Indian Space Research Organization ISRO launched its PSLV C37 rocket carrying 104 satellites in one go on Wednesday. The PSLV-C37 was carrying the Catosat-2 series satellite after launch began providing regular remote sensing services using its Panchromatic and Multi-Spectral cameras.
The Cartosat-2 series satellite was one those Indian sateliites amongst 104 satellites which were launched in one go by ISRO. After its injection into a 505 km polar Sun Synchronous Orbit by PSLV-C37, the satellite was brought to operational configuration.
The satellites have sent the high definition images from above. The images from Cartosat satellites will be useful for the cartographic applications, coastal land use and regulations, utility management like road network monitoring, water distribution, creation of land use maps, change detection to bring out geographical and manmade features and various other Land Information System LIS and Geographical Information System GIS.
ISRO hereby has carved this launch in the history of space as none of the space agencies across the globe has achieved this record. The launch took place from Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh. The launching today has set a benchmark in the field of space. This would serve as an inspiration to the world and the aspiring astronomers. In 2016, ISRO launched 20 satellites in one go where on 15th February, 2017 ISRO set a record by launching 104 satellites in one go.
