SO THAT'S WHY THE U.S. DIDN'T SEE INDIA'S A-TEST COMING (int'l edition)

In fact, EOsat's principal source of satellite imagery since 1994 is India's IRS satellite constellation, which the U.S. company says is "among the highest resolution commercially available satellite imagery today."

According to a British publication, Indian satellites were deployed to calculate blind spots in American satellite trajectories and thereby prevent them from detecting preparations for India's May nuclear tests.
