The PSLV-C51 rocket includes Amazonia-1 of Brazil as the primary satellite and 18 other co-passenger satellite, including Satish Dhawan Sat (SD SAT) from Chennai-based Space Kidz India (SKI).
“This satellite would further strengthen the existing structure by providing remote sensing data to users for monitoring deforestation in the Amazon region and analysis of diversified agriculture across the Brazilian territory,” an ISRO statement said.
