Microsat 2A / EOS 02

Microsat 2A [ISRO]

Microsat 2A or EOS 02 is a small Indian earth observing satellite developed by ISRO as a test payload for the maiden SSLV launch.

The satellite is being realised based on Microsat-TD to demonstrate launch on demand capability with SSLV. It is expected to meet the increasing user demands for cartographic applications at cadastral level, urban and rural management, coastal land use and regulation, utilities mapping, development and various other GIS applications.

The satellite carries two payloads, the MWIR (Mid-wavelength infrared) and LWIR (Long-wavelength infrared) imagers with 6 m ground resolution. The mass of the spacecraft is 142 kg and it will be placed at an altitude of 350 km. The mission life of the satellite is 10 months.

The satellite was launched as the primary payload on the maiden SSLV flight but failed to reach orbit.
