The rapid technological advances in Space are being put to use for the benefit of humanity. India is already using space technology for communication, telemedicine, education, information dissemination, monitoring weather, among others. Extending this deed, ISRO and US Space Agency NASA have collaborated in a joint Earth-Observation Mission named NISAR for global observations over all landmasses.
In a recent development, NISAR is proposed to be launched in early 2023, as suggested by Earth Sciences Minister Jitendra Singh. In today’s video, let us understand what the dedicated mission is all about.
What is NISAR?
NISAR is an SUV-sized satellite that is dedicatedly developed by the space agencies of the U.S and India for studying hazards and global environmental change. The mission that is equipped with the largest reflector antenna ever launched by NASA will measure Earth’s changing ecosystems and dynamic surfaces, spotting warning signs of imminent volcanic eruptions on one hand, and ice masses on the other, providing information about Biomass, Natural hazards, Sea-level rise, and Aid in monitoring groundwater supplies. NISAR, the word finds its origin in NASA-ISRO-SAR, will observe Earth’s land with 12-day regularity on ascending and descending passes, sampling Earth on average every 6 days for a baseline 3-year mission.
