Surgical Strikes: First major use of Cartosat images for Army

In what's being described as the first major use of the Cartosat family of satellites, the last one (2c) launched in June this year, sources in Isro said that the armed forces were aided by high-resolution images for the surgical strikes+conducted across the line of control+ (LoC) in the small hours of Thursday.

A source in Isro said: "We've been providing images to the armed forces, the army in particular. While I cannot comment if any specific image was sent on a particular day in the previous week, I can say that Cartosat images are meant for this purpose and the army has used this."

Both Isro and the Ministry of Defence (MoD) have largely remained tight-lipped about the uses of the Cartosat family of satellites—which experts call India's 'eye in the sky'—built for dual use.

The Cartosat-2C in particular added more teeth to India's military surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities, and has been providing high resolution images of 0.65 metres, an improvement over the 0.8m resolution of the earlier missions.

Area of Interest Images

"Cartosat also provided Area of Interest (AOI) based images for the armed forces," the source said. Another explained that based on requests, one or more scenes/images covering the AOI as specified is provided in as a single polygon (all the areas in one circle) in the form of a shapefile (non-topological geometry and attribute information for the spatial features).

According to the National Remote Sensing Centre (NRSC) in Hyderabad, AOI products are of two types—standard and precision-based ortho (where images taken from space are corrected to have an uniform scale—both of which are useful for the armed forces. Ortho rectified products are corrected for terrain distortions and camera tilt effects.

While the first Cartosat was launched in 2005, Cartosat-2A launched in 2007 was the first dual-use satellite with capabilities of monitoring missile launches in India's neighbourhood.

And, the Cartosat-2C is the best in the class that India boasts of although countries like the US and Israel boast of better ones. This satellite can not only click pictures of areas of interest, but also record videos of sensitive targets from space, compress it, and relay it back to earth.

From buying satellite images @ Rs 38,000 per frame in Kargil to ISRO own "spy" satellite in 2016.


ISRO leads the way.
Jamali you are absolutely right. We are proud of isro. They are most professional organisation.

Btw. Sunny Deol Ji if you free this weekend? Please go to Pakistan and rescue Chandu private. ( lol @ your profile)

Pehle Jake apne logon ka Inna lillahi Rajoun padh lol
Bhai dhire se dara.

Mein to physics ki katab Bhi padh leyanga.

Lmao do you really hope ? No way brother he is gone and we should accept it. He shouldn't have ventured there. His mistak we are already paying.

After reading this post, I have no doubt now that Indian are lying about surgical strikes.
.6 m resolution of satellite cant show surgical strike scenario. There are many other attributes of picture that adds to the visibility of objects in it. A satellite picture is simply not for that purpose.
This is indeed a fabricated gap shap by Indians.

Pakistani's will never accept it no point showing to you.you will Lie Like Kargil
Please understand their (PA) dilemma,
If they accept strike and act against India they are doomed and do not act they will be damned

So, let's see those satellite images of SirJeeKal strikes now.
give them a few days to come up with something funny......india's already an international laughing stock b/c they dont even know what "surgical strikes" means. Yes they martyred 2 of our jawans - we just smoked 8 of theirs and captured one, bombed their posts

Were talking about satellite based surveillance Pakidiot. We don't need comments from countries which know nothing about that.
so show it, thick-head, do you have a copy of imagery to share?
