ISRO new Ground Station in Bhutan, satellite technology know more.

      ISRO new Ground Station in Bhutan is being made. The ground station will track satellite data and data reception facility.  

Basics

      India is setting up a satellite tracking and data reception technology centre in the Himalayan country Bhutan (Thimpu).

     The Indian Space Research Organisation’s ground station in Bhutan will be a double a strategic asset for the India given its location between India and China region.

How is it Benificial For Bhutan & India ?

     For Bhutan

Gsat-9, popularly known in media as ‘Saarc satellite’, was launched by India in 2017 for its neighbours.

      India is currently helping its neighbouring countries to set up ground stations for effective kind of communication, better governance and to help banking services and also to promoting education and agriculture in their remote areas through Indian satellite

services.

SOUTH ASIA SATELLITE

    SriLanka, Nepal, Afghan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Maldives,  are the users of this multi-dimensional facilities which will bebe provide by the Gsat-9 satellite.

     The South Asia Satellite will provide crucial kind of information on tele-medicine, tele-education, banking sector and also on television broadcasting opportunities.

     It is also equipped with technology like remote sensing state of the art. The technology enables collection of real-time or live weather data and will help in observations of the geology of the South Asian countries.

INDIA BUILDING GROUND STATIONS

     As part of New Delhi’s space diplomacy, a tool the ministry of foreign has been trying to wield as part of its neighbourhood-first preference policy to counter China’s influence in the region.

       India have plan set up five large ground stations and more than 500 small terminals in five neighbourhood countries – Maldives, Bhutan, Nepal, Bangladesh and SriLanka.

     These ground stations of ISRO will help these countries to use the SAARC satellite effectively.

THE BHUTAN GROUND STATION ANDIMPORTANCE FOR INDIA

     Isro meanwhile can also use these ground stations to communicate with its own satellites also.

      The station in Bhutan is seen by expert as India’s counter to the satellite tracking infrastructure created by China in Tibet.

INDIA CHINA FACTOR

    China has in recent years established an advanced satellite tracking centre and astronomical observatory at Ngari in

Tibet areaawhich is Autonomous Region.

        The Regio about 125 km away from the

Line of Actual Control, which serves as the de-facto border between China and India.

        The facility in Tibet is such advanced that apart from tracking Indian satellites, it can also “blind” them easily.

CHINESE ANTI SATELLITE TECHNOLOGY

     China has already demonstrated Anti Satellite tech system. China has recently

tested 2 direct-ascent antisatellite missiles: the SC–19 and other the larger DN–2.

      On 11th January , 2007, China conducted an anti-satellite missile test successfully.

       A Chinese weather satellite which is FY-1C polar orbit satellite of the Fengyun series, which at an altitude of 865 km

(537 mi), with a mass of 750 kilogram was destroyed by a kinetic kill vehicle traveling with which a speed of 8 km per second in the opposite

direction.

      So, we hope now you are very well aware about ISRO new Ground Station in Bhutan and it’s purpose.
