Posted on Thursday, May 05 2005 @ 18:26:07 CEST by


Indian Space Research Organization launched the high-tech Cartosat-1 mapping satellite that has the capability to track every house and street in the nation. The space agency said the satellite has two cameras for stereographic imaging.

Cartosat-1 can capture visual features down to 8 feet, 2 inches across, according to Indian Space Research Organization. The satellite will be used to help urban and rural planning, relief operations, water management and environmental assessments.

The 3,300 pound satellite was launched by an indigenous rocket from a launchpad in Sriharikota. A version of the launch rocket will also be used in India's first mission to the moon in 2007 or 2008. More info at CNET
