Isro Says Multi-Object Tracking Radar Ready for Trials

The indigenously designed Rs. 245-crore multi-object tracking radar (MOTR) is ready to undergo trials, said a senior space scientist at Sriharikota on Saturday.

"The multi-object tracking radar has been installed. It has to undergo trials. Once the trials are satisfactory then it will be ready for use," M.Y.S. Prasad, director, Satish Dhawan Space Centre, told reporters.

According to him, the radar can track around 10 objects simultaneously.

He said the radar can track space debris so that a satellite's direction could be altered to avoid collision.

Prasad said the entire radar is fully developed by the Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro).

He also said the Isro's commercial arm Antrix Corporation has signed an agreement with a US company to launch one of its small satellites.
