GEO Imaging Satellite or GISAT is a planned Indian geo-imaging satellite for providing images quickly during disasters. Two identical satellites will provide resolution in the range of 50 m to 1.5 km. It will carry multi-spectral (visible, near infra-red and thermal), multi-resolution (50m to 1.5 km) imaging instruments. Launch of the first satellite to geostationary orbit is expected in 2019.
