IRS-1C and IRS-1D were two identical satellites from the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). IRS-1C was launched in December 1995 and ceased operations in 2007; IRS-1D was launched in September 1997 and ceased operations in 2010. As part of Indian Remote Sensing Satellite (IRS) programme, they contributed to support the national economy in the areas of agriculture, water resources, forestry and ecology, geology, water sheds, marine fisheries, coastal management, weather forecast and natural disaster management.
