ISRO-NASA joint mission NISAR Satellite to be launched in 2023
The ISRO-NASA joint mission NISER (NASA-ISRO Synthetic Aperture Radar) satellite, aimed at making global measurement of land surface changes using advanced radar imaging, is proposed to be launched in early 2023,
- NISAR mission is a joint Earth-Observation mission of Indian Space agency ISRO and US space agency NASA for global observations over all land masses including the Polar cryosphere and the Indian Ocean region.
- It is a dual-band (L-band and S-band) radar imaging mission with the capability of full polarimetric and interferometric modes of operation to observe minor changes in land, vegetation and cryosphere.
- Also, NASA is working on the development of L-band SAR and associated systems and Indian Space Agency ISRO is developing on the development of S-band SAR, spacecraft bus, the launch vehicle and associated launch services.
ISRO-NASA joint mission NISER (NASA-ISRO Synthetic Aperture Radar) satellite Objective
- The main objective of this mission is to improve understanding of the impact of climate change on Earth’s changing ecosystems, land and coastal processes, land deformations and cryosphere.
