SCATSAT 1 is a 818-pound (371-kilogram) spacecraft funded and built in India to join an international fleet of orbiting radars designed to track hurricanes, typhoons and other tropical cyclones. The spacecraft, fitted with a rotating Ku-band radar antenna, will bounce microwave radar beams off the ocean surface to determine the water's roughness. Data processors can derive wind strength and direction from the radar returns, feeding information to meteorologists about conditions away from coastlines and buoys.
