India’s launches latest disaster management satellite into space

The blast-off took place at Satish Dhawan Space Centre at Sriharikota in the southeastern Andhra Pradesh state on Wednesday.

The PLSV-C48 rocket is carrying India’s RISAT-2BR1 radar reconnaissance satellite. The 628kg radar is designed to produce images to be used in agriculture, forestry and disaster management.

The rocket also carries nine commercial satellites – one from Israel, Italy and Japan, and six from the US.

This was the 50th mission in which this type of rocket was used, and the 75th vehicle mission from Sriharikota.

All satellites have successfully reached their designated orbits, the ISRO said. The space agency also published a photo of India’s reconnaissance satellite separating from its carrier rocket.
