The way RISAT 2B replaced the RISAT 2, same communication satellite GSAT 32 will be replacing GSAT 6, which got lost and was meant to serve the ground forces.

After the launch of RISAT 2B, now cartosat-3, a high-resolution mapping satellite will be launched.

In an interview, Dr. Sivan told the Hindu, “To us, every satellite is just another satellite of national relevance”.

Radar imaging satellite, RISAT-2B was earlier scheduled to launch after the launch of RISAT-2A, next year, but it was launched today.
Now, Cartosat-3 will launch in the next month. Cartosat-3 will have 30 cm resolution. It can capture the images of guns, devices, objects and human movement at that scale from space.

 

Already there are half a dozen Cartosat-2 series satellites in an orbit. Cartosat-3 has much better resolution than all the Cartosat-2 satellites.
Now, these satellites are going to be a savior for the military forces.
