Webinar on “National Remote Sensing Day”

National Remote Sensing Day (12th August) is celebrated every year on the occasion of birth anniversary of Dr. Vikram Sarabhai, the Father of the Indian Space Program. His pioneering contributions towards the establishment and development of India’s nuclear power plants for defence purposes, apart from taking education to remote villages through satellite communication, landed him with two of India’s highest honours – the Padma Bhushan in 1966 and the Padma Vibhushan which was awarded posthumously in 1972.

Vikram Sarabhai was a visionary scientist, industrialist and institution-builder who called for the development of satellite-based remote sensing of natural resources.
