This is the 48th flight of PSLVC. Resat-B is the fourth satellite in the satellite series. The satellite will help in covert surveillance, agriculture, forestry and disaster management. The satellite weighs 615 kg and crossed the first orbit of the earth in just 15 minutes after launch. Synthetic aperture radar (abstract) imager is also sent along with Resat-B. This will keep the communication service intact.
Earlier on Tuesday, ISRO chairman K. Sivan had visited Tirupati and Tirumala temples and worshiped Lord Venkateswara according to ISRO tradition. He congratulated all the scientists after the successful launch of the satellite today.
