ISRO to launch radar imaging satellite capable of sending images in cloudy conditions  

New Delhi (Sputnik)Dec 06, 2019 The satellite holds immense significance for the armed forces, as an Indian Air Force (IAF) official reportedly said one Mirage 2000 had missed its target during India's air strike in Pakistan's Balakot area while aiming suspected terror camps on 26 February due to inclement weather. The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is set to launch an earth observation satellite "RISAT-2BR1",
