ISRO Releases First Day Images of RESOURCESAT-2A




RESOURCESAT-2A is a Remote Sensing satellite intended for resource monitoring. RESOURCESAT-2A was launched successfully by PSLV-C36 / on December 07, 2016 at 10:25 hrs (IST) from SDSC SHAR, Sriharikota.

RESOURCESAT-2A is a follow on mission to RESOURCESAT-1 and RESOURCESAT-2, launched in 2003 and 2011 respectively. RESOURCESAT-2A is intended to continue the remote sensing data services to global users provided by RESOURCESAT-1 and RESOURCESAT-2.

RESOURCESAT-2A carries three payloads which are similar to those of RESOURCESAT-1 and RESOURCESAT-2. They are a high-resolution Linear Imaging Self Scanner (LISS-4) camera operating in three spectral bands in the Visible and Near-Infrared Region (VNIR) with 5.8 m spatial resolution and steerable up to ± 26 deg across track to achieve a five-day revisit capability.

The second payload is the medium resolution LISS-3 camera operating in three spectral bands in VNIR and one in Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) band with 23.5 m spatial resolution. The third payload is a coarse resolution Advanced Wide Field Sensor (AWiFS) camera operating in three spectral bands in VNIR and one band in SWIR with 56 m spatial resolution.
