The Indian Space Research Organization launched its spy satellite today (April 20th, 2009). The satellite PSLV-C12 carried a 300-kg spy satellite, Radar Imaging Satellite (RISAT-2) and the 40-kg Micro Satellite ANUSAT, successfully. It took off from the ISRO’s Satish Dhawan Space Centre at 06:45 am. The spy satellite will be very useful to India because it will help monitor the mountains and valleys that connect India to Pakistan.

Further, the satellite will also bring to light the terrorist hideouts, which are located as far as Afghanistan and other northern territories. RISAT has synthetic aperture radar which will allow it to function day in and day out and in all weather conditions. Even ships that cross sea borders will be clearly visible.
