Isro happy with satellite performance

A press release from ISRO said that the three satellites Resourcesat 2, Youthsat and X-Sat were placed in the targeted orbits with high precision. “With the precise injection of the Resourcesat 2, about 20 kg of the fuel allocated for the probable dispersions in injection could be saved. This would help in enhancing the operational life of the satellite,” the release stated.

The health checks on all the three imaging cameras aboard the Resourcesat have been completed and operation of the imaging cameras is scheduled to commence on April 28. The first imaging pass on April 28 is expected to cover about 3,000 km stretch of Indian landmass from Joshimutt in Uttarakhand to Kannur in Kerala.

The two Indian payloads Limb Viewing Hyperspectral Imager (LiVHySI) and Radio Beacon for Ionospheric Tomography (RaBIT) have been switched on. On April 29, the Russian payload, Solar Radiation Experiment (SOLRAD) will be switched-on.
