Cartosat 3, 3A, 3B (EOS 08)

Cartosat 3 [ISRO]

Cartosat-3 is an Indian very high resolution panchromatic, multispectral and hyperspectral earth observation mission.

Cartosat 3 is designed as a follow-on to the Cartosat 2 series.

The satellite has an imaging payload with a ground resolution of 0.25 m with 16 km swath in panchromatic mode, a resolution of 1.13 m with 16 km swath in 4 band multispectral mode and a resolution of 12 m with 5 km in hyperspectral mode. It also feaures a MWIR Camera with 5.7 m resolution.

Many new technologies/elements have been developed like highly agile structural platform, payload platform, higher rate data handling and transmission systems, advanced onboard computer and new power electronics, dual gimbal antenna, etc.
