Cartosat-2F the eight satellite in the Cartosat-2 series is an Earth observation satellite launched on PSLV-C40 mission by the Indian Space Research Organisation.[1] It was launched at 05:00z from Sriharikota Range on January 11, 2018, the third of the series to be launched within a year.[2] The launch also marked the 100th satellite successfully put into orbit by the ISRO.[3]

Like other satellites in the series, Cartosat-2F was built on a IRS-2 bus. It uses reaction wheels, magnetorquers, and hydrazine-fueled reaction control thrusters for stability. It has a design service life of five years.[2] Cartosat-2F has two main remote sensing instruments, a panchromatic camera called PAN and a four channel visible/near infrared radiometer called HRMX.[1]

The first image returned by the mission, on January 15, 2018; was of Holkar Stadium and the surrounding community in Indore, Madhya Pradesh.[4]
