MEGHA-TROPIQUES is a climate research mission to track tropical cyclones, monsoons and storm systems for at least three years. Embarking on an international research mission, Megha-Tropiques has four instruments designed to probe the structure of the atmosphere, measure temperature and water vapor, and study the Earth's radiation budget. India built the spacecraft, provided the launch and contributed to two instruments. France supplied the satellite's water vapor profiling sensor and the radiation detector. The satellite orbits about 538 miles (866 km) above Earth, crisscrossing the equator to cover an area stretching between 20 degrees north and south latitude.
