1. The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has decided to follow a new naming policy for its earth observation satellites. Henceforth, it will be naming its earth observation satellites as EOS tagged with a serial number. 2. As a result, ISRO’s radar imaging satellite RISAT-2BR2 has been renamed EOS-01. 3. The ISRO Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV-C49) will launch EOS-01 as a primary satellite along with nine international customer satellites from Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SDSC) SHAR, Sriharikota. 4. The launch is tentatively scheduled at 3.02 p.m. on November 7, subject to weather conditions. 5. EOS-01 is an earth observation satellite intended for applications in agriculture, forestry, and disaster management support.
