Mission Details


EOS-06, also named Oceansat-3A, is an Indian satellite designed to provide service continuity for operational users of the Ocean Colour Monitor (OCM) instrument on Oceansat-2. It will also enhance the potential of applications in other areas. The main objectives of OceanSat-3A are to study surface winds and ocean surface strata, observation of chlorophyll concentrations, monitoring of phytoplankton blooms, and study atmospheric aerosols and suspended sediments in the water.
