    IRS stands for "Indian Remote Sensing" Satellite. It's main
    applications were multispectral imaging for the use of agriculture,
    mining, and geology (and whatever comes with that - water resource
    planning, forestry etc etc). It was launched in March 1988 for
    National Natural Resources Management System (NNRMS). More info
    about IRS programme can be found at http://www.isro.org/
