Default Cartosat-3

Cartosat-3 is a much more capable satellite, having a resolution of 25 cm. It uses 1.2 m optics with 60% of weight removal compared to Cartosat-2.

Other features include the use of adaptive optics, acousto optical devices, in-orbit focusing using MEMs and large area-light weight mirrors.
