UNSW to develop satellite surveying technology

University of New South Wales (UNSW) researchers will develop satellite surveying technologies that will allow flooding, bushfires, deforestation and earthquakes to be monitored in real time under a USD 4.7 million Australian Space Research Program grant from the Federal Government.   Associate Professor Dempster said the SAR Formation Flying project would ultimately enable real-time satellite monitoring of disasters such as floods and fires and may also be used to help predict earthquakes and volcanoes by measuring ground surface distortion. The Australian Defense Department is committed to developing its own SAR satellite capabilities as part of a move to increase its self-reliance in space operations.   Source: GIS Development
