National Remote Sensing Centre (NRSC), ISRO is announcing two short courses: (1) Remote Sensing Data
Acquisition, and (2) Remote Sensing Data Processing. The courses are conducted through the Centre
for Space Science and Technology Education in Asia and the Pacific (CSSTEAP) and are scheduled from
August 21 to September 01, 2023 and October 09-20, 2023, respectively, at NRSC's Earth Station at
Shadnagar near Hyderabad. CSSTEAP is an educational institution affiliated with the United Nations.
The courses aim at the dissemination of basic technical know-how on a ground antenna, and related
hardware systems, data and image processing techniques that include advanced topics such as AI/ML.
The objective of conducting the courses is to build capacities in the Asia Pacific region in areas
of satellite data acquisition and processing. The courses are organised under the aegis of the
UN-CSSTEAP ISRO programme headquarters at the Indian Institute of Remote Sensing (IIRS)/ISRO,
Dehradun. Admissions are open to professionals from the Central /State Government, Academia,
Industry, Startups, and other organizations engaged in the use of space platforms, remote sensing,
and geospatial technologies.

NRSC/ISRO has five decades of experience and expertise in satellite data reception ground segment
antenna development, deployment, and commissioning at national and international sites, including
Antarctica Station. NRSC has developed state-of-the-art facilities at IMGEOS (Integrated Multi
Mission Ground Segment for Earth Observation Satellites) Shadnagar, Hyderabad, India having 7.5 m
diameter, 4.5 m diameter antennas with the capability of receiving remote sensing satellite data
from ISRO, and other international missions in S/X/K/Ku/Ka bands. NRSC has the capability to
transform the satellite data acquired from optical, microwave, and hyperspectral and thermal sensors
into actionable products. These products are used in Land use Land cover monitoring, Ocean studies,
weather applications, and Scientific research.
