    Indian Spy satellite Pakistan to counter move

    Apr 20, 2009 (Asia Pulse Data Source via COMTEX) -- The launch of first Indian spy satellite into the orbit to monitor borders with Pakistan has raised many eyebrows and the development is likely to have adverse impact on terror war as well as strategic balance in South Asia.


    Well-placed government sources told TheNation that Indias Monday move has been taken by Islamabad as a pinch of salt and would seek to balance out the situation with counter plans come what may.

    In the interest of peace, India should have delayed its satellite-based spying mission on Pakistan that is currently engaged in fighting terror on its western border, a senior official said requesting anonymity.

    Since both the South Asian nuclear neighbours, India and Pakistan, always had tense relations because of Kashmir dispute, this development would add new dimension to their already estranged relations, a leading defence analyst said.

    He was of the view that Pakistan cannot remain insensitive to this development and would also like to follow the suit to boost its surveillance capability.

    Some sources, however, dropped hints that Pakistan may launch its own satellite in a couple of years as it was already in the process of acquiring technology relating to satellite launching vehicle to counter the Indian move. Pakistan had also launched a space research programme in late 80s and had already launched two satellites Badar-1 and Badar-2 on an experimental basis in collaboration with one of the Central Asian Republics.

    Now with India taking the lead Pakistan would also expedite efforts to counter the Indian programme as soon as possible, defence experts said. AFP from Bangalore adds: India put an Israeli-built spy satellite into orbit Monday, aimed at boosting its defence surveillance capabilities in the aftermath of the Mumbai militant attacks. The satellite, which can see through clouds and carry out day-and-night all-weather imaging, has been a long-standing demand of the Indian military.

    Its acquisition was fast-tracked after the November 26-29 Mumbai siege in which 10 gunmen killed 165 people. The 300kg RISAT 2 was launched by the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle rocket from the Sriharikota launch site, 90 kilometres north of the southern city of Chennai.

    It has been successfully placed in the orbit 20 minutes after lift-off this morning, G Padmanabhan, a scientist from Indias Space Research Organisation, told AFP by phone.

    Another senior scientist and member of the Space Commission, Roddam Narasimhaiah, told images from the new satellite, 550 kilometres above the planet, would show any movement on the surface of the earth.

    It can be used for monitoring the countrys borders round the clock, check cross-border movement and help the Indian security forces in anti-infiltration or anti-terrorist operations, Narasimhaiah said. Indias existing satellites get blinded at night and in the monsoon season but the one launched Monday will be able to work in all light and weather conditions, Narasimhaiah added.



    This is the funniest article how will pakistan do this??

    Pakistan is big joke, last i read was that they are about 10 years away from launching any satellite from PSLV type of platform......... now they want to have spy satellite of their own........ they want to get tech (for launch) for the same...... dont they have missile of their own ??? this shows their missile tech is not home made as they claim it is borrowed........

    They will eat grass but will still be able to make satellite and launch into the nether lands just like they did with nuclear weapons.

    They don't have history of making and launching even one normal satellite (except for for the miserable Badr-1 and 2 satellites) but still dreaming of launching a spy satellite. What a laughing stock they are making of themselves.

    That article doesn't have much credibility. No author, all unnamed sources.

    Pakistan Space and Upper Atmosphere Research Commission (SUPARCO), is joke when it comes to civilian application, they have never launch any satellite on its own, they want to launch SLV but they are 10 years behind and short of much needed funds for such type of programme, since their primary task was to get missile tech from world over therefore they never focus on the civilian aspect of space.........

    How about a Manned Mars Mission ??? If that is successful, I'm sure they would also be interested in sending a few Mullahs and Jihadis there to claim it as rightful territory...

    And, how about an AVATAR type satellite launch vehicle for them ??? Haven't they boasted about that ???

    Many Pakistanis really believe that their country can do anything that India can.

    They point to the mysterious CM Babur that came out of nowhere as a "proof" that Pakistan has stuff up its sleeve.

    One thing is sure, they will pester China for this tech. Let's see if China will part with space tech for them. I guess no.

    I think "request" or "beg" or "cajole to give" or "plead with" would be more apt replacements, don't you think ???

    They certainly are in no position to "pester" or "demand" anybody for anything...
