About EOS-06 satellite
Earth Observation satellite (EOS-6) is the third-generation satellite in the Oceansat series.
It provides continued services of Oceansat-2 with enhanced payload capability.
It was launched by ISRO onboard the PSLV-C54 along with eight Nano-satellites on 26 November, 2022.
It provides continued services of Oceansat-2 with enhanced payload capability and carries four payloads OCM-, Sea Surface Temperature Monitor, Ku-Band Scatterometer, and ARGOS.
Objectives of the Mission
Ensuring data continuity of ocean color and wind vector data to maintain operational applications.
To improve the applications, adjusting the number of bands in the optical region for some additional datasets such as sea surface temperature and fluorescence.
Develop related algorithms and data products.
