SMART
Satellite Meteorology and OceAnography Research and Training
Vedas

  • Introduction: Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has launched dedicated meteorological and oceanographic satellites viz., INSAT series, Kalpana-1, Megha-Tropiques, Oceansat-1 & 2, RISAT-1 and SARAL. In future, ISRO has planned to launch INSAT-3DR, Scatsat, GISAT and a few more satellites for meteorological and oceanographic studies. Data collected by these satellites are archived and disseminated through a data portal ‘Meteorological and Oceanographic Satellite Data Archival Centre’ (MOSDAC) designed and developed by Space Applications Centre (SAC), Ahmedabad.

  • Objective: SMART is ISRO’s initiative to support students, academics and researchers across the country to pursue research in the field of Meteorology and Oceanography using satellite data archived at MOSDAC and other related datasets.

    SMART provides following support for students, academics and researchers:
    • Familiarisation to MOSDAC data
    • Data analytics and advanced visualization
    • State-of-the-art computer facilities and
    • Research guidance
    Two outreach initiatives namely (i) Research Initiative and (ii) Training Initiative are planned as part of SMART to accomplish its objective.

  • Facilities Offered: A dedicated research and training lab equipped with state-of-the-art workstations, display systems, MOSDAC data and storage facility are established in SAC as part of SMART. Students, academics and researchers attending the research and training programmes will be allowed to use these facilities.

  • Call for Participation: Applications are invited from students, academics and researchers for SMART research initiatives. Interested may fill-in the application form provided at the SMART website and forward it to the Head, SRTD, 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 should be made jointly with SAC.

TREES
Training and Research in Earth Eco-System
Vedas

  • Objective: This is ISRO's initiative to support Graduate and Post graduate students, professionals from academics and researchers across the country to pursue research in the field of Earth Eco systems research using earth observation satellite systems.

  • TREES: The Research and training programs' 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. Research guidance.

  • This is managed by Scientific Research and Training Division SRTD/RTCG/MISA SAC.

  • Two outreach initiatives namely (i) Training Initiative and (ii) Research Initiative are planned to accomplish its objective.

  • 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. The participating Students, academia and researchers attending the research and training programmes’ will be allowed to use these facilities. Also they will be permitted to use the SAC canteen facility and knowledge rich library facility during their work span at SAC

  • Call for Participation: Applications are invited from students, academics and researchers for the research initiative programmes. Interested candidate may fill-in the application form provided at the website and forward it to the Head, SRTD/RTCG/MISA, 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.

  • TREES Selection-Cum-Evaluation Committee normally meets Quarterly in first Week of January, April, July and October to Select as per Vacancy and requirement. So the Candidates have to apply accordingly in Advance.

  • Scholars are not allowed to carry electronic items including pen drive, mobile phone, laptop etc. inside SAC campus. These can be kept in guest house/ Residence.

Internship at SAC
i1

SAC through its SAC-Academic Associate Programme (SAC-AAP), provides opportunity to students for internship at SAC in various domains including but not limited to electronics, mechanical, civil, electrical, remote sensing and GIS, mathematical modelling, image processing, RF systems, Digital systems, electro-optics, microwave and radars etc.

SAC-Academic Associate Programme (SAC-AAP):
The in-plant training programme (ITP) is open for students from academic institutes located in different parts of the country. It has been renamed as “SAC-Academic Associate Programme (SAC-AAP)” in 2014. SAC-AAP provides an opportunity for students to work with scientists/engineers on SAC projects and it has the following three schemes.

  1. Work-Experience Internship (WEI):
    It is offered to engineering graduate (BE/BTech) students who are studying in India for their final year/semester project work for a period of minimum 4-6 months.
  2. Dissertation Internship (DI):
    It is offered to post-graduate (ME/MTech/MSc/MCA) students who are studying in India for their final year/semester dissertation for a period of 6-12 months.
  3. 3. Research Internship (RI):
    It is offered to PhD scholars who are registered in Indian institutes for doing their thesis work which are relevant to SAC for a period of 4-12 months.
Information / Guidelines
The students need to keep in mind following information/guidelines.
  • Preference is given to M.Tech/M.Sc students of longer duration.However, We take a few undergraduate engineering students for their final semester full-time projects.
  • No stipend/transport facility is provided during the training.
  • Canteen facility is provided only on working days on payment basis.
  • Access to library is provided on working days.
  • No evaluation is done at our end.Students are allowed to take only report of the work done. Only certificate is issued at the end of the internship.
  • No publication will be done without the knowledge of Project Mentor of SAC.
  • Eligibility: Minimum first class is sine qua non throughout education (SSLC onwards).
  • A student will get only one chance for internship in a programme.
  • As per GTU norms, BE/BTech students are allowed to come once in a week only for Industry Defined Projects in 7th semester. Considering the practical difficulties in accommodating BE/BTech 7th semester students who comes once in a week, it is proposed to take these students only in the 8th semester,who can come minimum four working days in a week.
  • Students are entertained through their academic institution only.
  • General letter or NOC will not be entertained. No students should contact directly any officials at SAC. Any form of influence will not be entertained.
  • Reply/Regret will be sent to the respective institution only well in advance. Intimation is sent on December for January session and on June for July session.
  • Selected students will get an opportunity to work on specific ongoing/study project of his discipline under the guidance of a senior scientist/engineer. Topic of project work will be informed after joining at SAC.
  • The following is the deadline for receiving applications from institutes for internship.
    • April 30 : for June Session
    • October 31 : for January Session
  • Interested students may contact concerned HOD/Training & Placement Officer of the respective institution for sending consolidated formal request letter at the following address at least three months before starting of the internship.
