ISRO sent its own S-band aperture radar to NASA. This satellite project is a joint project of NASA and ISRO. The NASA-ISRO synthetic aperture radar is the first artificial satellite to observe the Earth at two different frequencies.
It will be paired with their i-band radar at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. NASA will then send the entire payload to India. It will launch from Sriharikota in April or May next year.
According to NASA, this artificial satellite will be able to take extremely high quality images of the Earth from space. This will make it easier to observe different parts of the world. NASA says the artificial satellite will also be very effective in monitoring the causes and consequences of climate change.
Not only that, it will be easy to analyze the situation and information of various natural disasters, such as tsunamis, earthquakes, volcanoes, etc. It will help in dealing with disasters.
However, this is not the first time NASA-ISRO has teamed up. Earlier, NASA’s Moon Mineralogy Mapper was used in ISRO’s Chandrayaan-1 mission. ISRO proved the existence of water on the moon in this mission.
