Everyone is talking about the 1.5 Billion dollar NASA ISRO project and has left out the precursor to the satellite launch, which a notable airborne system ‘airborne sensor synthetic-aperture radar for ocean studies’ has been given to the Andhra University. The third one is “sound propagation losses to understand the movement of underwater objects in the shallow regions of the oceans’,” said Prof Prasad.
University officials informed that Prof Prasad has more than 30 years of experience in the aforementioned research studies.
Prof Prasad said these projects are important for society. “One of the three projects is the “forecasting of rip currents”. The shallow water currents prove to be dangerous not only for beaches of Visakhapatnam but also everywhere along the coastal waters. Another project is related to NASA and ISRO’s collaborative satellite, which is going to be launched in the year 2020.
