Geo-imaging satellite EOS-03

Geo-imaging satellite for earth observation EOS-03, which would enable near real-time monitoring of natural disasters like floods and cyclones, is scheduled for launch in the third quarter of 2021.
  • The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) will launch a Geo-imaging Earth Observation Satellite (EOS-03) in the coming months as the agency reassesses work following the Covid-19 induced lockdown.
  • The launch is scheduled for the third quarter of 2021.
  • The EOS-03 satellite will enable near-real-time monitoring of natural disasters like floods and cyclones that have become common in the Indian subcontinent as it goes through major environmental and weather changes.
  • The satellite will image the whole country four to five times on a daily basis, sending in key data related to weather and environmental change.
  • In addition to natural disasters, EOS-03 will also enable monitoring of water bodies, crops, vegetation conditions, and forest cover changes.
  • The first earth observation satellite was launched in 2020 along with nine customer satellites.
  • The EOS-1 was intended for applications in agriculture, forestry and disaster management support.
