The business arm of ISRO, Antrix Corporation earned more than ₹220 crore on this dispatch. 

The NovaSAR is an innovation showing mission intended to test the abilities of a new ease S-band SAR stage. It will be utilized for dispatch discovery and oceanic observing and furthermore surge checking, other than farming and ranger service applications. The S1-4 will be utilized for condition checking, urban administration, and handling fiascos. 

"This remarkable mission is primarily for 'rising daytime hub' dispatch. This is the first occasion when we have executed an alternate kind of mission out and out," K. Sivan, Chairman, ISRO said.
