2014 India will launch high-performance electronic intelligence satellite monitoring of Pakistan
Data for: Indian rocket launch site
LONDON March 25: India’s leading think tank Institute of Peace and Conflict 22 published an article that suggested the development of anti-satellite device following the identification of advanced technologies required for the building after Indian state-owned Defence Research and Development Organization has announced a new plan, saying India will build and launch a high-performance electronic intelligence satellites to monitor sensitive locations and the border, especially in areas bordering with China and Pakistan. According to reports, the satellite is expected to launch in 2014.
The article said that the satellite’s payload will be India’s Defense Research and Development Organization under the Hyderabad Defence Electronics Research Laboratory developed the satellite launch technical support provided by the Indian Space Research Organization. Indian Defence Electronics Research Laboratory Director G. Boopahty introduction, the satellite will be equipped with special sensors to monitor and detect espionage. The satellite program from the east coast of India 斯利哈里柯 tower on the island’s Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SDSC) take the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) into the ground 500 km orbit. Most of the spy and surveillance satellites are close to the satellite from Earth orbit.
Indian Defence Electronics Research Laboratory Bhoppathy said the satellite is expected to launch in 2014. “Now the space is the focus, in response to electronic warfare, we must also equip themselves from space.” He also revealed that the satellite’s performance over the Indian Space Research Organization is using Earth observation satellites, and satellite equipped with an electronic intelligence system In addition to intercepting and jamming enemy satellites, the satellite is also able to monitor hostile.
article explained that currently there is no Indian defense forces for surveillance, reconnaissance and intelligence gathering dedicated satellite system. Naturally, the Indian armed forces can use part of India’s Defense Research and Development Organization of communications and Earth observation satellites. If all goes well, the Indian Navy is expected later this year for the first time with an own dedicated satellite. Last year, Indian Defence Minister AK Antony said the Indian Navy in 2010 to obtain a reliable, robust and foolproof dedicated satellite communication system. Fengyun satellite, code-named Gsat -7 being developed by the Indian Space Research Organisation, and will be launched later this year. Although the Indian Navy sources confirmed the news of the satellite to be launched, but the Indian Space Research Organization have not made any response.
At the same time, the Indian defense forces will benefit from the upcoming launch of the mapping satellite Cartosat-2B, the satellite has a ground resolution of less than one meter imaging system. Satellite scheduled to ride in the first half of the polar satellite launch vehicle. Cartosat series mapping satellite was developed by the Indian Space Research Organization and the launch can be effectively used for remote detection of urban planning and urban and rural areas in India and so on. Of course, technically speaking, the resolution of the satellite has up to 10-15 cm behind the most sophisticated military satellites.
article said, the Indian Space Research Organization in 2001 launched the Engineering Test Satellite (TES) resolution of 1 meter, the satellite on the planet can identify targets as small as one square kilometer, and has been regarded as India’s unofficial reconnaissance satellites. TES data in the United States in the fight against terrorism after 9-11 has helped. After the terrorist attacks in Mumbai, India in April 2009 with the Israel Aircraft Industries (IAI) launched a cooperation and weighing 300 kilograms RISAT-2 satellite. RISAT-2 radar imaging satellite remote sensing satellite different from previous, it is equipped with multiple antennas using synthetic aperture radar, the antenna can receive signals, then the signal processing into a high-resolution images. The satellite in the night and a variety of rain, snow, fog conditions to detect hostile activity. Before the Indian Space Research Organization launched the Earth observation satellites can only be good in the light under the conditions of image collection.
conclusion, the article said that although the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) to RISAT-2 is described as more civil space systems, is used to strengthen the flood, landslides, cyclones and disaster management observation, but the strategic Analysts clear that India’s defense forces can easily use RISAT potential to significantly improve its intelligence gathering capabilities. India’s defense forces can easily use RISAT-2 monitoring in the border military. It is particularly worth mentioning is that, RISAT satellite 4-5 days of re-visit cycle contribute to the strategic developments in the dynamic monitoring. In addition, the highly flexible RISAT-2 according to the needs of users and the flexibility to change perspective. (Spring)
