• Space Applications Centre (SAC), Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), Department of Space (DOS), Government of India, declares an “Announcement of Opportunity (AO)” to carry out scientific research for the utilisation of science data to be acquired from Airborne flights of Hyperspectral sensor called AVIRIS Next Generation (NG) over India in collaboration with Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), NASA.

  • The AVIRIS flights over Indian sub‐continent were conducted during October – November, 2015 and January ‐ February, 2016. Presently, this AO is targeted towards utilizing the data to be acquired from AVIRIS NG flights.

  • The AVIRIS‐NG can take observations over a continuous electromagnetic spectrum spread over 380 – 2510 nm at 5 nm band interval. This is capable of providing hyperspectral observations at 6 m pixel resolution over a flight swath of 6 km when the flight altitude is about 6 – 7 km.

  • In the past, ISRO has developed and launched hyperspectral satellite sensor such as HySI in Indian Mini Satellite 1 (IMS‐1) mission and Chandrayan‐1 mission. In the past ISRO has carried out hyperspectral applications using ground, airborne and space borne sensors in various fields.
