The Indian remote sensing satellite (irs) programme, is a major step forward in the overall programme for using space technology for defined applications in India. The principal elements of this programme are (i) to design, develop and deploy a three-axis stabilized polar sun-synchronous satellite carrying state-of-the-art payloads using charge coupled devices for acquiring images of the earth, (ii) to establish and routinely operate ground-based systems for spacecraft control, data reception… 
Remote sensing applications : An overview
Remote Sensing (RS) refers to the science of identification of earth surface features and estimation of their geo-bio-physical properties using electromagnetic radiation as a medium of interaction.
Remembering IRS-1C Mission: The “Game Changer” of Indian Earth Observation Program
India’s second-generation earth observation satellite series started with the launch of IRS-1C in December 1995 and was one of the most successful missions of the IRS program, with a 5.8 m panchromatic (PAN) camera onboard.
Progress and Challenges in Earth Observation Data Applications for Agriculture at Field Scale in India and Small Farm Holdings Regions
The paper traces the evolution of agricultural remote sensing in India through its four phases: initial exploratory and aerial data based (1969–1982), IRS Utilization Program led (1983–1995),
Estimation of suspended solids using Indian Remote Sensing Satellite-IA data: a case study from Central India
Abstract The objective of this study was to use Indian Remote Sensing Satellite-IA (IRS-1A) Linear Imaging Self Scanning-I (LISS-I) digital data in combination with field measurement for the
Remote sensing: A tool for sustainable environment
Remote sensing is an important method of earth observation from out of space using satellites. Satellite sensors can constantly observe the earth’s surface and with the development of remote sensing
A Political History of U.S. Commercial Remote Sensing, 1984-2007: Conflict, Collaboration, and the Role of Knowledge in the High-Tech World of Earth Observation Satellites
The political history of U.S. commercial remote sensing began in 1984 when the U.S. government first attempted to commercialize its civil earth observation satellite system â Landsat. Since then, the
Comparative Analysis of Different Land Use–Land Cover Classifiers on Remote Sensing LISS-III Sensors Dataset
Determination and identification of land use–land cover (LULC) of urban area have become very challenging issue in planning a city development. In this paper, we report application of four
