ISRO Successfully Inserts RISAT-2BR1 Satellite into Orbit

India successfully placed into orbit its latest radar imaging earth observation satellite RISAT-2BR1 and nine foreign satellites from four countries using its PSLV rocket. In the process, India touched 319 foreign satellite launch mark ever since 1999. India's latest radar imaging earth observation satellite RISAT-2BR1 now up in the sky will send sharp clarity images for surveillance, agriculture, forestry and disaster management. The satellite camera can look through the clouds and take pictures. The Indian space agency officials said they would supply the required images for various agencies. It is for the user agency to decide on the image use. One more such satellite RISAT- 2BR2 will soon be launched by ISRO. "I am extremely happy to declare that 50th PSLV rocket had injected the RISAT-2BR1 and nine customer satellites into precise orbit," K. Sivan, ISRO Chairman. "Along with 50th mission of PSLV rocket, the mission marks another milestone for ISRO. This is the 75th rocket launch from Sriharikota," Sivan said. He said for the last 26 years of PSLV rocket team was led by eminent persons like Srinivasan.
