India: The Indian Institute of Technology Gandhinagar (IIT-Gn) has signed a MoU with Space Applications Centre (SAC) of Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) for research collaboration in the areas of electronics, signal and image processing, electro-optical systems modelling.
Under the MoU, IIT-Gn students will undertake research internships at SAC on joint research projects of common interest to IIT-Gn and SAC. In turn, IIT-Gn will host scientists from SAC who wish to engage in teaching and research, and those interested in pursuing a higher degree.
Signing the MoU, IIT-Gn director Sudhir Jain and SAC director AS Kiran Kumar, emphasised that the collaboration will allow both the institutes to explore opportunities and result in significant research output in areas of electronics, signal and image processing, among others.
Some of the IIT-Gn students are already working as interns at SAC. The students are working on projects such as electronics, control system for navigation and modeling under various senior scientists. Sensor Development Area Deputy director,Saji A Kuriakose, stressed upon the development of a miniature airborne platform, which will find significant use in local remote sensing.
