According to the Indian External Affairs Ministry, India successfully launched a satellite developed in collaboration with Bhutan on Saturday.

The satellite will provide high-resolution images to Bhutan for natural resource management, according to a statement from the ministry.

According to the statement, the Indian Space Research Organization’s Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) C54 “carried the India-Bhutan SAT, as well as India’s Earth Observation Satellite -06 and other satellites from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota.”

“India has aided in the capacity building of Bhutanese engineers by providing hands-on training at the UR Rao Satellite Centre in Bengaluru on satellite building and testing, as well as satellite data processing and analysis.” This culminated in the joint development of the customised satellite for Bhutan, which was launched today,” according to the ministry.

Bhutan’s high-level delegation, led by Information and Communications Minister Lyonpo Karma Donnen Wangdi, travelled to Sriharikota to witness the satellite’s launch.
