Bangalore: A new Radar Imaging Satellite (RISAT) has been developed by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO).
The radar is capable of taking images through clouds, enabling space-based applications to manage cyclones, floods and agriculture-related activities.
Currently, India has satellites that can take images only when the weather is cloud-free.
ISRO Chairman G. Madhavan Nair said, “Once our satellite (RISAT) is put into orbit, we will be able to use it for all purposes. And that will also help us in assessing the agriculture during monsoon seasons”.
