India's first indigenously built all-weather Radar Imaging Satellite, RISAT-1, with applications ranging from agriculture to natural disaster management, is now in polar orbit after its carrier, the PSLV-C19, was launched with clinical precision from the Sriharikota spaceport of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on Thursday.

RISAT-1, weighing 1,858 kg and the heaviest satellite launched yet by the PSLV, is a state-of-the-art Active Microwave Remote Sensing Satellite carrying a Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) that will operate in the C-band.

In simpler terms, the RISAT-1 can beam back imaging of the earth surface features at day and night and under all imagined weather conditions. SAR, which gives the RISAT-1 its magical roving eyes, also makes it superior to the generation of optical remote sensing satellites in clearer imaging at all times and under any condition.

Terming the PSLV-C19 launch a “grand success,” ISRO Chairman K. Radhakrishnan said the RISAT-1 was precisely injected into an orbit in an altitudinal range of about 480 km. In the next three days, it would be raised to a 536-km polar orbit. After the satellite was placed in orbit, solar panels and SAR antenna were successfully deployed. This antenna would shortly be pointed at the earth, and by May 1, imaging operations were expected to be launched, he said.

According to ISRO scientists, once its on-board propulsion system raised the orbital altitude to 536 km, the satellite will begin its daily routine of 14 orbits with a repetitive cycle of 25 days. During its mission life of five years, the RISAT-1 will use its active microwave remote sensing capability for cloud penetration and day-night imaging of the earth surface and provide critical data inputs for a range of agricultural and soil moisture studies and forestry applications. Among the many tasks the RISAT-1 can perform are paddy monitoring in kharif season, crop estimation and mapping of forestry biomass, besides providing the big picture on natural disasters such as flood and cyclone.

In the early hours of Thursday, the mission command centre at the ISRO's Satish Dhawan Space Centre here went through the customarily tense countdown leading to the lift-off. At precisely 5.47 a.m., the launch vehicle's core stage and a set of six strap-on motors ignited within seconds to signal the successful lift-off of the PSLV-C19, with the satellite firmly docked in its metal frames.

Jubilant scenes erupted at the mission command centre once the PSLV-C19 executed with programmed precision each of the four stages of ignition and separation in a flight of 18 minutes, and in one final push injected the RISAT-1 into orbit with an altitude of about 480 km.

Prof. Yashpal and Prof. U.R. Rao, two of the doyens of India's space programme, were present to partake of the celebrations of what they described as a landmark event.

The approved cost of the mission was Rs. 488 crore — the assembling of the satellite involved Rs. 378 crore and the rocket Rs.110 crore.

The PSLV C-19 is the 21st flight in the PSLV series of satellite launches, the 20th consecutive successful launch and the third to involve the high-end version (PSLV-XL) equipped with six extended strap-on motors, each carrying 12 tonnes of solid propellant. The two earlier flights of the PSLV-XL were used to launch Chandrayaan-1 and the GSAT-12 communication satellite.

Congrates to ISRO team.... This microwave satellite is boon to our country. Now we can rely on ISRO itself.

Lately,We have been hearing scandal after scandal and many more unpleasant news about
India. The successfull firing of the Agni Missile and the launch of PSLV C-19 is like a whif of fresh air to our crestfallen minds. We are again able to stand with our head held high. With ISRO's success we find solace in the fact that there are institutions which show that ,when we set our heart and minds to work , we can compare ourselves to the best in the world. Congrats to the ISRO team and our gratitude for making all Indians proud.

The success of PSLV C-19 is an eloquent proof of the calibre and proficiency of Space Scientists of India and the efficient management of ISRO. It is another wake up call and a golden opportunity to Agricultural Scientists of ICAR and all the State Agricultural Universities to make best use of the products for the benefit of resource poor farmers. I sincerely hope that they would certainly garb the opportunity. However, much depends on the leaders of these organizations. They need to communicate and collaborate effectively with Space Scientists to deliver meaningful decision support systems for increasing profitability and sustainability of farming enterprise throughout the country, especially in harsh physical, social and economic environments.

Hats off to the scientists at ISRO for successfully developing and launching the radar satellite RISAT-1 with SAR operating in the C band, having advantage over optical observation as the technology will enable to monitor the earth's surface day and night & in all weather conditions, it can even see through the clouds. It will be very useful for environmental surveillance esp. rainforests monitoring and deforestation. It can be used to monitor floods, land cover, disaster mapping, relief coordination etc and in maritime enforcement to track ships, check oil spills & pollution by the oil industry.

Time and again, ISRO and its team of dedicated and highly qualified
minds make us proud to be an Indian. If by any wild chance, a day
comes when the same level of dedication, hard work, foresight and
patriotism reflects in the Indian politicians, I am certain, from that
day onward we would be truly world no. 1 in every sense. I wish I
would be alive to see such a historic day! I wish to see an Indian
scientist or an honest entrepreneur to be India's PM one day and I
wish that day comes in our life time!

ISRO we're proud of you and we love you and we'll remember forever
your invaluable contribution toward nation building.

Congratulations to all at ISRO. We can be proud that our technology is advancing with an exponential factor for the last few decades. But our officers should work hard to bridge these achievements into local people. Never let the spatial information from RISAT-1 to sleep in research documents. Let the objectives of the mission be achieved through securing agriculture sector and managing natural disasters. All the very best.

I am happy to see that our scientists are achieving success by this. But I'm not able to correlate how those remote sensing images are going to help India on food security, agriculture, flood control etc.! may be I'm uneducated on this. With common sense I'm not able to realise that this is going to be of any help to our farmers or our people all together, regarding food security, agricultural aspects- paddy monitoring etc. Will any one in India(may be a farmer or a common man) going to realise a huge advantage by this satellite? I doubt that.
