TASL sets up a facility to manufacture high-resolution imagery satellites

Tata Advanced Systems Ltd (TASL) has set up a facility to manufacture high-resolution imagery satellites that will help the armed forces keep a closer eye on border areas, betting big on the military space sector.

The Bengaluru-based facility will manufacture sub-metre resolution satellites and will have a ground station that can control their movement and process imagery required by the armed forces to monitor infrastructure or acquire military targets.

Built on TASL’s considerable defence sector capabilities, the facility is geared to manufacture up to 24 low earth orbit (LEO) satellites a year.

To be noted that the plant is being set up in partnership with Satellogic, a Latin American company that specialises in earth observation satellites.

And, the first Indian-made satellite is expected to be ready for launch within six months and will provide images with a 0.5-metre spatial resolution.
