    We will be having GISAT with the same resolution by 2018.

    Hey this could bea stupid question but I wanted to know for a very long time.

    Is there a satellite tech that can detect nuclear submarines underwater?
    Few months ago I war reading this novel ghost fleet. It shows China having a sat to detect gamma radiations emitted from the reactors of carriers and submarines. It's kind of a star wars fanboy kind off a book but it made sense on some capabilities.

    Satellites could detect submarines by disturbance/projection they make on surface. In shallow clear waters, submarines could be seen by remote sensing satellites. SSNs/SSBNs could be detected by trail of hot water expelled from their cooling system.

    None of these tactics work if your sub could dive deep/below thermocline layer.

    Chinese Satellites has very poor sensor so resolutions can hardly provide clear images in isolation. It is like a phone of an ordinary company and a good company like Samsung. If you compare 8 mega pixel image of an ordinary company Mobile with less mega pixel image of a good mobile, later shall be more clear. With BS sensor, so called high resolution of chinese satellites are BS and can not match the picture quality of Indian satellite images.

    Nope.

    You need quantum radars to detect targets below the ocean surface. And that radar doesn't exist yet, but soon...

    Same way it should be difficult for us as well to target Chinese ships with K 15 type of missile as well. What say sir?

    I had read somewhere that US will will be able to detect Subs in some time from now.

    There is interesting work happening on LIDAR by DARPA. But been a while, do not remember where I read it.

    And it would be a luck to focus your satellite camera on that position of the Sub, which is very easy like finding the needle in the heap of straws.

    And why only the visual sensor, why not magnetic resonance imaging sensors, infrared sensor, fish sensors, water bubble sensors.
