Sub-Group: The Radio Observatory

It is for handling multidisciplinary space science research by using the NSSTC Radio array observatory in the 50 - 300 MHz RF frequency band and studying about space objects with the help of radio wave spectrum.  The following highlights a sample of the Group’s research interest:Radio Astronomy: It is a study of radio waves naturally occurring from stars, planets, galaxies, clouds, and gas. It is for observing and monitoring transient events in the Universe with the help of wavelength patterns.Solar Physics: Studying solar activity and its properties by carrying out low-frequency radio studies. It also covers the analysis of intense radiation coming from solar flares, coronoal-mass-ejections (CMEs) and types III radio bursts.Space Physics: It is the observation and measurement of space plasma activity near the Earth space to predict space weather with accuracy.Planetary Science: It studies the celestial bodies that orbit around the solar system with the help of radio observations.Space Situational Awareness: Refers to the capability of detecting and tracking of space objects and space debris as a part of Astrodynamical studies (Orbit Determination, conjunction assessment, collision avoidance).
