students, academics and researchers
Introduction: ISRO has launched series of polar
orbiting Remote sensing satellites IRS, Resoursat, CARTOSAT and
RISAT. The sensors onboard these satellites are having different
resolution and type of data. Moderate resolution sensors AWiFS,
LISS-III, high resolution data from LISS-IV, CARTOSAT-1 and
CARTOSAT- etc. These archived data is available under research
programme under Visualization of Earth Data and Archival System
Objective: The Research and training programmes are
designed for the target audience of Graduates and Post graduate
students, the Researchers from R & D institutes and Academia. The
broad area will be applications of remote sensing. The data base
contained in VEDAS will be used as a source.
We are providing following support for students, academics
and researchers 1. Familiarity of VEDAS 2. Advanced
Visualization of Earth data on VEDAS data base available on large
networked storage 3. Access to VEDAS Computer Workstations,
Image processing and GIS Software 4. Data Analytics 5.
Facilities Offered: A dedicated research and
training lab equipped with state-of-the-art workstations, display
systems, VEDAS data and Networked storage facility are established
in SAC. Also they will be permitted to use the SAC canteen and
library facility during their work span at SAC.
Call for Participation: Applications are invited from
students, academics and researchers for the research initiative
programme. Interested candidate may fill-in the application form
provided at the website and forward it to the Head, ERTD/VRG/EPSA
SAC through their respective Head of the Department/ Institution.
Applications are accepted throughout the year. Patent, copyright,
IPR arising from the work done at SAC will be part of SAC and
other relevant institute.
