India plans to launch an Israeli spy satellite over the coming days, the American magazine Aviation Week reported on Tuesday.
Israel's first Polaris/TecSat military imaging radar satellite will be launched from India's launch site on an island in the Bay of Bengal. The satellite will have night vision capabilities and will be able to see at a resolution of one meter.
The satellite, according to the magazine report will join the Ofek-7 satellite in space, which was launched from Israel in June, following the failure to launch Ofek-6.
