ISRO to Set up Research Centre in Guwahati

The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) will set up a research centre in Guwahati, Assam for start ups, academicians, environmentalists and entrepreneurs.

ISRO would set up the exclusive research facility in Assam to explore the possibility of using geospatial technology, which include data generated through global positioning system (GPS), geographical information systems (GIS) and satellite remote sensing for expediting the development of Assam.

Remote sensing technology would be used for accurate flood warning system, prevention of soil erosion and land slides.
