ISRO launched another remote sensing satellite, CARTOSAT-3 onboard PSLV-C47, earlier this morning, from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre at Sriharikota.

Apart from CARTOSAT-3, PSLV-C47 also carried 13 other commercial nano-satellites from the US.

CARTOSAT-3 is India’s third generation satellite used for high-resolution imaging and mapping of the earth’s surface.

In a first, CARTOSAT-3 will allow India to map the earth’s surface with the precision of 25 cm. This will give our defence agencies access to unprecedented level of image clarity.
