Features of RISAT-1:
  • Weight:  1,858 kg 
  • Heaviest satellite launched  by the PSLV all launched satellites till now.
  • It Can beam back imaging of the earth surface features at day and night &
     under all imagined weather conditions.
  • State of the art Active Microwave Remote Sensing Satellite carrying a Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) that will operate in the C-band.
  •  SAR, which gives the RISAT-1 its magical roving eyes, also makes it superior to the generation of optical remote sensing satellites in clearer imaging at all times and under any condition.
About the Success: 
  • ISRO Chairman K. Radhakrishnan said the RISAT-1 was precisely injected into an orbit in an altitudinal range of about 480 km.
  • The PSLV C-19 is the 21st flight in the PSLV series of satellite launches.
  •  The 20th consecutive successful launch 
  • The third to involve the high-end version (PSLV-XL) equipped with six extended strap-on motors, each carrying 12 tonnes of solid propellant. 
  • The two earlier flights of the PSLV-XL were used to launch Chandrayaan-1 and the GSAT-12 communication satellite.
