ISRO’s S-Band SAR Payload of
Aperture Radar (NISAR) mission was flagged OFF by
Chairman, ISRO / Secretary, DOS on March 4th 2021 through Virtual Mode.
S-Band SAR payload has been shipped from Space Applications Centre, Ahmedabad (SAC/ISRO)
to Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena for integration with L-Band SAR Payload of JPL,
NASA. NISAR is a joint collaboration between ISRO and NASA for a dual-frequency L and
S-Band Synthetic Aperture Radar for earth observation. NISAR would provide a means of
disentangling highly spatial and temporally complex processes ranging from ecosystem
disturbances to ice sheet collapses and natural hazards including earthquakes, tsunamis,
volcanoes and landslides.
