Once bitten twice shy. This is what led India to have an eye in the sky. The Kargil misadventure by Pakistan convinced India that Islamabad could no longer be left unwatched. And, now Pakistan complains that India is keeping an eye over it, this time from the heavens.

Pakistan media is worried that India is taking rapid strides in space technology with robust investment. Responding to a query about what Pakistani media described as India's increasing space "surveillance capabilities", Pakistan Foreign Office spokesperson Mohammad Faisa, in his weekly address yesterday said that "such pursuits" should not be "directed towards a buildup or destabilizing military capabilities."

Why Pakistan has a problem with ISRO ' s 100 th satellite launch . And, now Pakistan complains that India is keeping an eye over it , this time from the heavens. But, then, India is already keeping a watch on Pakistan for few years.

This can "negatively impact the regional strategic stability", he said while acknowledging that "all space technologies, including earth observation satellites, are inherently dual use and can be employed for both civilian and military purposes."

But, then, India is already keeping a watch on Pakistan for few years. This is believed to have prevented a recurrence of Kargil like situation along the borders.

WHY INDIA NEEDED EYES IN SPACE

Soon after partition, Pakistan Army mapped a plan to capture Kashmir. A war began and halted without pushing the Pakistan Army back to its territories. Another war happened in 1965 followed by one more six years later.

Champagne box-sized satellite to probe distant planet

  Champagne box-sized satellite to probe distant planet France is set to launch the mini satellite into Earth orbit on Friday to study a mysterious, juvenile planet system, mission controllers said. The PicSat orbiter's target is the massive star Beta Pictoris, some 60 light years from Earth in the southern constellation of Pictor (The Painter's Easel), and its planet Beta Pictoris b — a gassy giant.

During the 1971 war, India came to know about the importance of space technology in devising military plans. The US had recalled its seventh naval fleet mid-way after realising that the USSR had sent its submarines in support of India. But Indian space programme was in nascent phase at that time.

Kargil incursion by Pakistan took India by agonizing surprise. India had no clue that Pakistani Army had come well inside its territories and stood there for months. This served as the final reminder and warning to India that Pakistan must be watched over.

INDIAN 'SPIES' IN SPACE

In a few years' time, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) launched a series of satellites with capabilities that could be of significant use to the armed forces. CARTOSAT and RISAT came up to give India the capability to keep an eye on Pakistan's activities along the borders.

When India launched RISAT-1 in 2012, the American space technology experts said that this remote sensing satellite had radar reconnaissance imaging capability that was comparable to that of the most modern versions of the high-flying U-2 spy plane operated by the US Air Force.

4 Months After Failed Bid, ISRO Launches 100th Satellite: 10 Facts

  4 Months After Failed Bid, ISRO Launches 100th Satellite: 10 Facts 4 Months After Failed Bid, ISRO Launches 100th Satellite: 10 FactsSpace agency ISRO this morning successfully sent up a rocket carrying India's 100th satellite along with 30 others, four months after failed launch. The Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle or PSLV lifted off at 9.29 am from Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh and a key component that had failed in August worked this time, causing scientists to gasp in relief at having crossed a major hurdle. The lift-off was postponed by a minute because of fear of collision with space debris. The last launch of IRNSS-1H - India's first privately built satellite -- on August 31 last year had failed because of a freak accident.

And, now Pakistan complains that India is keeping an eye over it , this time from the heavens. ISRO on 12-01-2018 launched its 100 th satellite as the PSLV-C40 and placed 31 satellites from seven countries - including three Indian - across two orbits.

With the launch of Cartosat 2E+ in June last year, India considerably enhanced its remote sensing capabilities in space. Cartosat 2E+ was dubbed by many as India's "eye in the sky".

The ISRO today launched its 100th satellite as the PSLV C40 placed 31 satellites from seven countries - including three Indian - across two orbits. The main payload of the PSLV C40 today was the fourth satellite of Cartosat 2 series.

With this the total number of ISRO satellites that can be used for military purposes has gone up to 14. These satellites have surveillance and mapping capabilities, and can be used to keep an eye on enemies along the land and sea borders. And, this is exactly why Pakistan feels uncomfortable with the ISRO's latest stride in space
