METSAT the first exclusive meteorological satellite built by ISRO is a?

Deep Space Probe
Polar Orbit Satellite
Geosynchronous Satellite
Low Earth Orbit Satellite

METSAT is the first exclusive meteorological satellite built by ISRO. METSAT is a geostationary satellite that was launched by an upgraded, four-stage PSLV-C4 rocket from the Satish Dhawan Space Center, SHAR on 12 September 2002. It was for the first time that PSLV launched a satellite into GTO; in all its previous flights, PSLV was used to place Indian Remote Sensing Satelittes and other auxiliary payloads in Polar orbits. The triaxially-stabilized, 1,060 kgs (including 560 kg of propellant), 550 W METSAT carries a VHRR (Very High Resolution Radiometer) scanning radiometer for three-band images: one in the visible, the second in the thermal infrared and the third in the water vapor infrared bands, each at a spatial resolution of 2-km x 2-km resolution, to obtain atmospheric cloud cover, water vapor and temperature. It also carries a Data Relay Transponder (DRT) to provide data from unattended fixed/mobile ground level weather platforms. It was maneuvered from the transfer orbit to a geostationary at 37°E longitude on 16 September 2002, and then to the final parking at 74°E longitude on 24 September 2002.
