Nisar Mission: Isro invites researchers, scientists to participate in Nisar | India News – Times of India



BENGALURU: Isro on Friday offered an opportunity for Indian researchers and scientists to access, analyse and interpret the data from the NASA-Isro Synthetic Aperture Radar (Nisar) satellite mission, scheduled for launch in early 2024, through the Nisar Utilisation Programme (Nisar-UP).

“Nisar offers vital data to observe and study Earth’s intricate processes. This cutting-edge mission involves high-resolution imaging, precise orbit control and short revisit periods. It aims to study ecosystem, cryosphere, solid Earth science and coastal ocean processes to address global environmental changes and natural hazards. It supports disaster responses by providing rapid access to relevant data,” Isro said.
Nisar-UP has called for project proposals from researchers, academicians and scientists affiliated with Indian government organisations and government-recognised institutions, universities and departments.

“The programme, offered by the Isro Space Applications Centre, looks to support three-year projects through an open data policy in diverse application themes like agriculture, forestry, hydrology, snow/glaciers and disaster management using the L-band and S-band SAR data from Nisar,” Isro added.
The focus areas include developing operational algorithms for applications in different fields, retrieval of biogeophysical parameters. Project proposals are to be submitted by October 31, 2023, while Isro will announce the results (selection) post evaluation in March 2024. “Researchers are invited to join the programme leveraging Nisar data to make discoveries and create a sustainable future for our planet,” Isro said.
