World's First Stereographic Mapping Satellite

Cartosat-1 attracts attention of four Countries

Cartosat-1 attracts attention of four Countries India recently launched two satellites into the space using a polar satellite launch vehicle (PSLV) from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota. One of these two was a remote sensing satellite named Cartosat-1.

The CARTOSAT-1, India's 11th remote sensing satellite, is expected to give further impetus to cadastral-level applications with its high resolution imageries. It carries two state-of-the-art panchromatic cameras that will take black and white stereoscopic pictures of the earth in the visible region of electromagnetic spectrum. It is the first satellite to carry two cameras to take 3-D images.

India Launches World's First Stereo Imaging Satellite

India will today inaugurate a new launch pad at its Satish Dhawan space port near Chennai, on the south-east coast, by putting the world's first stereographic mapping satellite into orbit.
The most innovative feature of the 1.6-tonne Cartosat-1 is its pair of cameras, which will give stereo images of the earth's surface that can distinguish features down to 2.5 metres across. They will directly generate three-dimensional maps that have until now been achievable only indirectly, by combining data from a large number of satellite passes over the same place.

"Such a stereographic imaging system does not exist in the civil sector anywhere else," says Mr Nair, chairman of the Bangalore-based Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). "It will give information about heights that will be very useful in applications such as planning power lines." Cartosat-1 will join what is already the world's largest cluster of non-military remote sensing satellites. Six Indian spacecraft are already observing the earth with a wide range of instruments.

On Tuesday, Isro chairman G Madhavan Nair and other top space scientists offered prayers to Lord Venkateswara at Tirumala for the success of the launch. Models of the rocket and the Cartosat satellite were brought to the temple to seek the god’s blessings.
