CARTOSAT-2 Series Satellite
/ Activities /
The Cartosat-2 series satellite is the primary satellite carried by PSLV-C34.
satellite is similar to the earlier Cartosat-2, 2A and 2B. After its injection
505 km polar Sun Synchronous Orbit by PSLV-C34, the satellite was brought to
configuration following which it will begin providing regular remote sensing
using Panchromatic and Multi-spectral cameras.
The imagery of Cartosat-2 series satellite will be useful cartographic
urban and rural applications, coastal land use and regulation, utility
road network monitoring, water distribution, creation of land use maps,
change detection to bring out geographical and manmade features and various
Information System (LIS) and Geographical Information System (GIS) applications.
Launch of PSLV-C34/Cartosat-2 Series Satellite Mission took place on June 22,
