RISAT-2B is an indigenously developed Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) Imaging Satellite operating in the X-band.  The highly agile satellite is capable of operating in different modes including Very High-Resolution RADAR imaging modes of 1m x 0.5m resolution and 0.5m x 0.3m resolution.  In order to increase the number of imaging opportunities, the satellite is placed in an inclined orbit. As RISAT-2B is a Radar Imaging satellite; it can be operated effectively during day/night/ all weather conditions.

The Satellite will be used for high-resolution spot imaging of locations of interest.  Apart from this, data from RISAT-2B will also be utilized for agriculture applications and disaster management support.

Applications of X-Band SAR imagery include Hydrology, Crops, Forestry, Geosciences, and Cryosphere. During the time of exigencies, very high resolution, day/night/all-weather imaging capabilities of RISAT-2B could be utilized for Disaster Management Support.
