Indian Space Research Organisation has successfully launched the electronic intelligence satellite EMISAT along with 28 nanosatellites of international clients from Sriharikota. With this, India currently has a brand new surveillance satellite, thanks to a distinctive mission of the Polar Satellite launch vehicle which has many firsts. EMISAT along with the 28 other tanks were placed in the orbit inside 2 hours of launch, the space agency said. Notably, the launching of EMISAT took place only six days after India test fired a virus satellite missile from the Mission Shakti Operation. Like Dr. G.
Satheesh Reddy, leader of DRDO stated, it was really double bullseye in space. EMISAT weighs 436 kg and will monitor and provide locations of enemy radar sites in their territory. Now we were using planes as early warning platforms, however, this satellite will provide a space-based platform to sniff out enemy radar. This is all the more important for us as China isn’t just using its technological advances in spying on us, but additionally equipping Pakistan with its latest defense equipment to be used against us to guard its own investments at the China Pakistan Economic Corridor cutting Gilgit Baltistan and Balochistan.
An intriguing point is the EMISAT roared through 300 pieces of debris left behind by last week’s ASAT missile launch. There’s a stage in this present launching. EMISAT will be following an extremely elliptical orbit called a signature SIGINT orbit, after its launching on the PSLV-QL, a brand new variant from the PSLV family. This may be assisting EMISAT the largest possible period of time to document high resolution signs from a particular location. With this, India has developed the capacity in signal intelligence – signals broadcast by communication systems, radars along with other electronic systems on the floor from hundreds of kilometre away in space.
It’ll help our scientists, and thus the forces, to scan ice, rain, coast areas, land masses, forests and wave heights in relatively easy fashion. The outer area is essential to the functioning of contemporary societies, as a range of services and devices which range from missiles to phones, banking to navigation, meteorology to disaster management, are helped with these satellites. If NASA comes out with a critique of our ASAT missile, then it’s only general concern about the accumulation of garbage in space. While such concerns are real and must be kept dearer to one’s heart, there’s not much which a country like India can do when it’s surrounded by forces inimical to his interest, and who keep provoking it on daily basis. There might be no concern for any country in the world compared to its own safety.
Therefore, ASAT missile and now EMISAT aren’t only essential, but additionally the research should be taken forward to higher degrees.
