ISRO to launch RISAT-2BR1 on May 22

Even the UN praised India for how India handled the biggest cyclone Fani, and could manage to save many lives. India is again set to launch RISAT-2BR1, it will be launched on May 22 using ISRO’s own Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) called PSLV-C46, from Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh.

RISAT-2BR1 is a Radar Imaging Satellite, it will provide all-weather surveillance using synthetic aperture radars (SAR). RISAT’s are the first all-weather remote sensing satellites from ISRO. However, the configuration of RISAT-2BR1 is different from the previous RISAT’s and brings along improved observation and imaging capabilities.
