India to launch Israeli spy satellite
The launch will mark a crucial milestone in growing Indo-Israeli military ties and there's a likelihood that some of the secret images taken by TechSar will be made available to India.
Developed by the Israeli aircraft industry, it will be Tel Aviv's first satellite with what is known as a synthetic aperture radar (SAR). This will allow the satellite to see objects below which are extremely tiny. SAR is used by moving instruments like satellites over immobile targets and has wide applications in the critical area of remote sensing.
