As the humankind aims for deeper space missions like Mars in couple of years from now, the time is to democratise humongous data available via NASA and space agencies like the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) that can boost space research via next-gen cloud computing, a top NASA-JPL official has stressed.Scheduled for launch from Sriharikota launch facility in Andhra Pradesh in 2022, the NASA-ISRO Synthetic Aperture Radar (NISAR) mission is a joint project between the US and Indian space agencies to co-develop and launch a dual-frequency synthetic aperture radar on an Earth observation satellite. The satellite will be the first radar imaging one to use dual frequencies (L and S Band).
ISRO is likely to spend Rs 788 crore while JPL’s work share is expected to be over $800 million on this key project.Using advanced radar imaging that will provide an unprecedented, detailed view of Earth, NISAR satellite is designed to observe and take measurements of some of the pla...
