Cartosat-3 will monitor Pakistan
Cartosat-3’s camera is so powerful that it can take clear pictures from space to ground to a height of less than a foot. With this, the enemies of the country can be monitored.
ISRO’s Cartosat-3 will be the 9th satellite of Cartosat series. The camera of Cartosat-3 is so much powerful that it will be able to take pictures of less than 1 feet (9.84 inches) on the ground from Space.
