RISAT 2 is a radar spy satellite, fitted with a dish-like radar antenna designed to see through darkness, clouds and camouflage. The satellite, weighs about 660 pounds [300 kg] at launch and was built by Israel Aerospace Industries. It is designed for an orbit with an altitude of about 342 miles [550 km] and inclined 41 degrees to the equator. Radars transmit beams toward Earth and measure the reflected signals to create detailed images of objects on the ground. This satellite provides an important new capability for Indian intelligence services. Previous Indian satellites, including a high-resolution observer launched last April, carried optical imaging sensors that were hampered by darkness and bad weather conditions on the ground.
