The IRS (Indian Remote Sensing) satellites form a large family of Earth observation satellites operated by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO).

IRS-1C and IRS-1D were identical Earth-imaging satellites launched two years apart:

  • IRS-1C was launched in 1995 and ceased operations in 2007
  • IRS-1D was launched in 1997 and ceased operations in 2010
