Space Applications Centre (SAC), Ahmedabad is one of the lead Centres of Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), Department of Space (DOS). SAC focuses on design of space borne instruments for terrestrial and planetary missions of ISRO and development and operationalisation of space technology for national development. The applications cover communication, broadcasting, navigation, disaster monitoring, meteorology, oceanography, environment monitoring and natural resources survey. SAC designs and develops all the transponders for the INSAT and GSAT series of communication satellites and the optical and microwave sensors for IRS series of earth observation satellites. Further SAC develops ground transmit and receive systems and data / image processing systems. SAC has highly sophisticated payload design and integration laboratories and facilities for electronic and mechanical fabrication, environmental tests and image processing and analysis. Campus library of SAC is the finest in western region. SAC is also actively involved in imparting training to scientists and engineers from the Asia Pacific region through the nine months PG diploma programs of the UN-CSSTEAP. SAC has made pioneering contributions in the field of agriculture, forestry, coastal zone management, urban planning, snow and glacier studies, oceanography and atmospheric studies. SAC has developed concept and techniques for pre-harvest estimation of production of major crops under multi-agency FASAL project, forecasting of potential fishing zones using OCM and other satellite data, studies of Himalayan glaciers and snow cover and monitoring of coastal zones using optical as well as microwave remote sensing data. Methodology for tracking cyclones in terms of direction and land falls has been developed and used for recent cyclones like Gonu, Nargis etc. Algorithms have also been developed to derive ocean parameters like sea surface temperature, wind speed, wave heights etc as well as atmospheric parameters such as water vapour, cloud liquid water content etc. Present thrust areas for applications are towards utilization of data from Indian satellite missions including INSAT-3D, Oceansat-2, Cartosat series, RISAT, Resourcesat-2, Meghatropiques, etc and the planetary mission like Chandrayaan-1. A Programme on Climate change Research in Terrestrial environment (PRACRITI) is initiated to study the impact of climate change on Agriculture System, Himalayan Cryosphere, Terrestrial Hydrology over India and the Sensor System Studies for Monitoring of Green House Gases.
