About the organization:
Space Applications Centre (SAC) is one of the major centres of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). It is a unique centre dealing with a wide variety of themes ranging from payload developments to societal applications. SAC is responsible for realizing the applications-oriented programmes of ISRO in the areas of Satellite Communications, Navigation and Remote Sensing. Design and development of space-borne instruments and payloads for communications and remote sensing satellites for ISRO missions : Communication Transponders for INSAT/ GSAT series of communication satellites. Remote Sensing/ Meteorological application like survey and information on natural resources, agricultural applications like crop, acreage and production estimation, coastal zone regulation, forestry, disaster monitoring and mitigation, studies in ocean and atmosphere science for weather forecasts, etc. Conducting nine-month Post-graduate (PG) diploma courses for students from the Asia Pacific region under the aegis of the Centre for Space Science and Technology Education in Asia & the Pacific (CSSTEAP) in satellite meteorology and communication. SAC works with industry for sourcing and indigenization involves Indian universities in space research and propagates space technology and applications amongst students and public through in-house and mobile exhibitions. In order to carry out the above tasks, SAC has highly sophisticated payload integration laboratories, electronic and mechanical fabrication facilities, environmental test facilities, systems reliability/assurance group, project planning and management support and a well-stocked library. Recognizing the possible role of space communications in nation building, an Experimental Satellite Communication Earth Station (ESCES) was established in 1967 at Ahmedabad (now part of SAC). It was an experimental Earth Station and training centre where scientists and engineers of India and other developing countries could receive training and first hand experience in the design, development and operations of an earth station for communications and broadcasting. A large number of international training courses have been conducted since then. A unique experiment called the Satellite Instructional Television Experiment (SITE) was conducted during 1975-76 utilising the American ATS-6 satellite. It involved telecasting educational programmes aimed at socio-economic upliftment of rural India, to 2400 villages – spread over six states – through experimental Direct Reception Sets. SITE was followed by communication techniques developmental project called Satellite Telecommunications Experiments Projects (STEP), carried out with the Frenco-German satellite, Symphony.
