It carried a single Panchromatic (PAN) camera with 1 m resolution capable of providing scene specific spot imageries for cartographic applications at cadastral level. The swath covered by the high resolution PAN camera is 9.6 km. This mission will cater the needs of cartographers and terrain modelling applications. The satellite will have high agility with capability to steer along and across the track up to 45 degrees. It was placed in a sun-synchronous polar orbit at an altitude of 635 km. It has a revisit period of 4 days, which can be improved to one day with suitable orbit maneuvers.
