About NRSC

Disaster Management Support

NRSC / ISRO has the mandate to develop the technologies for effective use of remote sensing and GIS based information services for disaster mitigation, relief and management at local/state/central level. Information is generated and disseminated to national / state disaster management authorities during various phases e.g. pre-disaster, during disaster and post disaster.

Required technologies are being developed at Decision Support Centre (DSC) and National Database for Emergency Management (NDEM) for satellite data interpretation, integration of field data using mobile devices, generation of thematic database for disasters like floods, cyclones, drought, forest fire and  landslides.
