The Cartosat-2 series satellite launch is a follow-on mission with the primary objective of providing high-resolution scene-specific spot imageries.

The total weight of all the satellites combined was 1,323kg which will be deployed in the lower orbit after the lift-off. So far Cartosat performance is satisfactory, he said at the mission control room.
