Voltage issue further delays launch of Gisat-1 | India News - Times of India



“The satellite has some voltage fluctuation issue which is delaying the launch,” one scientist in the know told TOI.
Once launched on a GSLV, the satellite, which will add to Isro’s constellation of EO satellites, will be placed in the geostationary or the geosynchronous equatorial orbit (GEO). Once in the GEO, it will subsequently be positioned in geostationary orbit, about 36,000km above Earth’s equator, using onboard propulsion systems.

Gaganyaan, India’s first manned space mission: DFRL’s pouch technology to prevent food waste in space - Star of Mysore
Mysuru: When India’s first crewed space-flight ‘Gaganyaan’ lifts off next year, commencing a new era of space exploration, the astronauts on-board will not only carry a selection of special foods developed by Mysuru-based Defence Food Research Laboratory (DFRL) but also they can prevent food from being wasted. In developing indigenous technology to prevent food waste, the DFRL is promoting Aatmanirbhar Bharat.

Clearly Cartosat 2 series.
we don’t have any high res colour imaging sat. But we have one of the highest res monochrome sat (Cartosat 3) with less than 0.25m resolution.
Not one of the highest, but the highest resolution camera equipped satellite.

Not really. US have even more higher resolution satellites. One such example is this. The size of this satellite is that of Hubble space telescope just pointed towards earth instead of outer space.

Those KH-11 series SPY sats are no joke.

India-France sign agreement for cooperation on Gaganyaan mission


"Under the terms of the agreement, CNES will train India's flight physicians and CAPCOM mission control teams in France at the CADMOS centre for the development of microgravity applications and space operations at CNES in Toulouse and at the European Astronaut Centre (EAC) in Cologne, Germany," the CNES said.

The agreement provides for the CNES to support implementation of a scientific experiment plan on validation missions, exchange information on food packaging and the nutrition programme, and above all the use by Indian astronauts of French equipment, consumables and medical instruments.

French equipment developed by CNES, tested and still operating aboard the International Space Station (ISS) will thus be made available to Indian crews.
