  • The Laboratory specializes in mapping and analyzing the area based on its topography, geology, geo environmental parameters, land use and land cover that are utilized for surface and sub-surface characterization.
  • Terrain evaluation using remote sensing & GIS :

    • Trafficability studies and preparation of mobility maps in off‐the‐road scenario
    • Automatic updation of going maps
    • Terrain briefs for terrain potential
    • Generation of updated topographic maps

  • Extraction of terrain features from satellite and airborne remote sensing platform, their visualization and mapping for terrain potential and inputs to battle field management system using microwave, thermal and visible imageries in panchromatic, multi-spectral and hyperspectral bands.
  • Conventional and Non-conventional techniques for evaluation of terrain parameters.
  • Situational Awareness and Decision Support System based on simulation and modelling for terrain exploitation. The role of machine intelligence, pattern recognition, signal processing, image processing technologies to churn the voluminous data from various sensors and payloads on-board different remote sensing platforms using data mining, data dimensionality etc. for change detection and target identification and mission planning applications.
  • Field studies in difficult terrain like Ditch-cum-bund,deserts, mountains etc. using conventional and non-conventional methodologies and development of appropriate infrastructure.
