The satellites are: INSAT 4A, an Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) telecommunications satellite, and the Meteosat Second Generation 2 (MSG-2) weather satellite. MSG-2 transmits detailed meteorological images to Earth every 15 minutes. It is a joint project by the European Space Agency (ESA) and the European organisation for the exploitation of meteorological satellites (EUMETSAT).
