EOS-06 - ISRO Satellite

Series: EOS Series

EOS-06, also known as Oceansat-3, is an Earth observation satellite developed by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). It is was launched was launched successfully on November 26, 2022, using ISRO’s Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV-C54). EOS-06 is part of the Oceansat series of satellites, which are designed to monitor and study various aspects of the Earth's oceans and coastal zones. The primary objective of EOS-06 is to provide continuity to the services of its predecessors (Oceansat-1 and Oceansat-2) with enhanced payload capabilities to support oceanographic and atmospheric studies. This includes applications in ocean surface studies, coastal zone management, and marine weather forecasting.

EOS-06 Mission Information

Mission Details

ApplicationOceansat series, which provides continued services of Oceansat-2 with enhanced payload capability. The satellite onboard carries four important payloads viz. Ocean Color Monitor (OCM-3), Sea Surface Temperature Monitor (SSTM), Ku-Band Scatterometer (SCAT-3), ARGOS. The Oceansat-2 which was a launched during Sept-2009 configured to cover global oceans and provide continuity of ocean colour data with global wind vector and characterization of lower atmosphere and ionosphere. The mission resulted in many research collaborations nationally and internationally on various areas global chlorophyll distribution, Kd 490 distribution, ocean color images, oil spillages, wind vector products.
