  3. 3. SATELLITE COMMUNICATION 3  In 1975-76, the Satellite Instructional Television Experiment (SITE) telecast a series of educational TV programmes on health, family planning, agriculture, education to cover 2,500 Indian villages via the US satellite, ATS-6.  The Satellite Telecommunication Experiment Project (STEP), conducted using Franco-German SYMPHONIE satellite during 1977-79.  India also launched its own APPLE (Ariane Passenger Payload Experiment), an experimental communication satellite, in June, 1981 using the opportunity offered by the European Space Agency (ESA) to launch this satellite on board the third developmental flight of ARIANE.
  4. 4.  Largest domestic communication system in the world.  Joint venture undertaken by the Department of Space, Department of Telecommunications, India Meteorological Department and All India Radio and Doordarshan.  Serves the television and communication needs of India.  Carries with it 199 transponders and has Very High Resolution Radiometer (VHRR) and CCD cameras for metrological imaging. 4
  5. 5. PERFORMANCE OF INSAT 5  Television reaches to about 85 percent of the population through over 1000 TV transmitters linked via INSAT.  Educational programmes for over 100 hours are telecast every week.  INSAT system has become a powerful tool for training and developmental education and is used by various agencies to provide continuing education, conduct in-situ training.  A pilot project that started in November, 1996 in a tribal district of Madhya Pradesh in Central India is now in progress to educate the tribal community on various aspects of health, hygiene, family planning, women's rights, etc.

  17. 17. 23 There are two types of remote sensing :- I. Passive Remote Sensing:- Sensors detect natural radiation that is emitted or reflected by the object or surrounding area being observed. Example:- infra-red, charge-coupled devices. II. Active Remote Sensing:- Active collection emits energy in order to scan objects and areas whereupon a passive sensor then detects and measures the radiation that is reflected or backscattered from the target. RADAR is an example of active remote sensing.
  18. 18. 24  Conventional radar is mostly associated with aerial traffic control and large scale meteorological data. Types of active collection includes plasmas in the ionosphere. Interferometric synthetic aperture radar is used to produce precise digital elevation models of large scale terrain.  Laser and radar altimeters on satellites have provided a wide range of data. By measuring the bulges of water caused by gravity, they map features on the seafloor to a resolution of a mile or so. By measuring the height and wave-length of ocean waves, the altimeters measure wind speeds and direction, and surface ocean currents and directions.  LIDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) - is well known in the examples of weapon ranging, laser illuminated homing of projectiles. LIDAR is used to detect and measure the concentration of various chemicals in the atmosphere, while airborne LIDAR can be used to measure heights of objects and features on the ground more accurately than with radar technology.

  22. 22. 28  Imagery from Google Earth is provided by a company called DigitalGlobe.  A new spacecraft known as WorldView is now launched. The new ‘craft’ provides high definition satellite, which means more accuracy for us users.  Together with the company’s existing Quickbird satellite, it offers half-meter resolution and collects over 6 million km2 of imagery each day, up from the current collection of that amount each week.
