The EOS-03 is a geo-imaging satellite that will be launched by ISRO in the third quarter of 2021. Once launched, this satellite will enable real time monitoring of natural disasters like floods, cyclones etc. The satellite is capable of imaging the whole country four to five times a day.
Apart from monitoring natural disasters, the geo-imaging satellite will also be observing water bodies, crops, vegetation, forest covers and other such aspects. This will be the first observation satellite to be launched by the space agency this year.
