Evaluating the safety and integrity of infrastructure such as bridges, which is often done through hands-on inspections, may soon be possible with the help of information captured several kilometers above the Earth’s surface. According to a National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) news article, scientists from NASA, the University of Bath, and the Italian Space Agency used historical synthetic aperture radar (SAR)

International Training Course on Small Satellite Missions

This is event is available for participation on an ongoing basis
English

In small satellites, payloads with a mass of just a few kilograms, are able to perform measurements that were done with tens of kilograms a few years ago. The fast and cheap development of microsatellites also makes them a suitable platform for technology evaluation and provides opportunities to test new systems in space with low cost, less risk and short time. Over the last few years, with ISRO’s support and guidance, some of the Indian Universities have made their own satellites which were launched by ISRO.

latitude: 

30

longitude:
