Tata built this satellite to help the Indian Army, Elon Musk’s company will send it into space.

Tata Group has built a satellite to help the Indian Army. It is India’s first military grade spy satellite developed by the private sector. It is being launched soon. This satellite will be launched from a rocket of Elon Musk’s company SpaceX.

The construction of the ground station is in progress.

According to an ET report, the satellite has been developed by Tata Advanced Systems Limited (TASL), a Tata group company. It was fully prepared last week. Now the work of building a ground station for this satellite is also going to be completed. The spy satellite will be controlled from the ground station and processed at sub-meter resolution.

A satellite equipped with these capabilities

The satellite will be launched by a SpaceX rocket in April. A satellite is being sent to Florida for this. Tata Advanced Systems Limited has developed this satellite in partnership with Latin American company Satellogic. This satellite can take images with a resolution of up to 0.5 meters. This will help the army to monitor the border and decide on strategic objectives.

These needs of the army will be fulfilled.

The need for troops to monitor the border has increased following the escalation of tensions on the border with China. Currently, the military has to rely on American companies for satellite intelligence. ISRO also has sub-meter resolution satellites, but they do not prove to be sufficient for the needs of the military, as the military often requires large coverage and sometimes has an urgent need. In this case, this satellite will reduce the dependence of the army on foreign companies and data will be available immediately.

A control center is being built in Bengaluru.

A control center is being built in Bengaluru to control this satellite. The satellite will be guided from the control center itself. Along with this, the images required by the army for monitoring the border or locking targets will also be processed at the control centre. If required, this satellite can also be useful for friendly countries.
