After Chandrayan-2, ISRO set to launch Cartoset-3 satellite in Oct/Nov

“The next launch will be a cartography satellite Cartoset-3. The launch will be towards the end of October or early November this year,”said K.Sivan, Chairman, Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO).

After the successful launch of Chandrayan-2 India will launch its advance cartography satellite, Cartoset-3, earth observation or remote sensing satellite which will be launched using the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle(PSLV). Cartoset is an advance version of Cartoset-2 series satellites. It has a better spatial and spectral characteristics feature as compare to its previous series satellites.

It will also have a strategic application with better picture qualities.

What is Cartoset Satellites?

The Cartoset satellites are the series of satellites build and operated by Indian Space Research Organisation(ISRO). These are Indian earth observation satellites which are also the part of Indian remote Sensing Program. They are used for Earth’s resource management and monitoring purposes.

History of Cartoset Satellites

The first Satellite of the series, “Cartoset-1,” was launched by The Department of Space(DoS) in 2005. PSLV-C6 launched the Satellite from Satish Dhawan Space Center’s SLP at Sriharikota. Cartoset series was an extended version of previously launched Remote Sensing Satellite from Indian Remote Sensing Programme.

Indian Remote Sensing(IRS) Programme was started under ISRO with the launch of IRS-1A in the year 1988. After the first launch of IRS Programme Department of Space launched ten satellites under this program before the launch of Cartoset satellite. But considering the increase in demand for large scale and topographic mapping data, Cartoset satellite was launched.

The IRS Programme Launch Log

For the IRS Programme ISRO had launched 24 satellites including 8 Cartoset series Satellites.
