Jammu: India has taken a “huge leap” in science and technology in the last seven years under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Minister Jitendra Singh said after inaugurating an X-band Doppler weather radar here on Sunday. To provide better forecast.

He said that the recent achievements of India’s space scientists have been acknowledged by the world, even after the Prime Minister in his Independence Day speech announced the launch of the National Hydrogen Mission to make the country a green hydrogen production hub. looking towards.

Singh said, “Different countries are looking towards India after recording achievements in various fields including space technology. This was possible because in the last seven years Prime Minister Modi has given priority to the field of science and technology and accordingly the budgetary allocation extended.” journalists after the incident.

The state-of-the-art indigenous GPS based Pilot-Sonde enables data collection in all weather conditions with minimal human intervention and features auto-detection of balloon launches and balloon bursts.

Singh said that NASA is acquiring images taken by the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) through its Chandrayaan and Mangalyaan missions, while countries like Nepal, Bhutan and Bangladesh are using India’s technology for weather forecasting. Huh.

“The images that have been obtained by our Mangalyaan have been obtained by NASA which is a premier space institute in the US. Our Chandrayaan has detected water on the Moon, what a remarkable journey it has been for us and what next The leap is because when we started our space travel, countries like the Soviet Union and the United States were already preparing to land on the Moon,” the Minister of State for Science and Technology and Earth Sciences told the gathering.

The minister said that India has started space travel long back and today we are getting such inputs which are not even available with the US.

“The hydrogen mission was announced by the Prime Minister and the world is looking at us to become a major green hydrogen hub,” he said, adding, “If this giant leap has happened in the last seven or eight years, then it is to the credit of The highest goes to the Prime Minister. India had human resource, scientific and innovation potential but the priority at the level of policy planners was missing earlier.”

He said that Modi not only made high budgetary allocations to the Science Ministry and related departments, but also showed deep personal interest and encouraged scientists.

He said that the new weather technology will benefit the people of Jammu including pilgrims, tourists, students and all those farmers who can plan their activities accordingly.

He said that Jammu has become the hub of various institutions in the last few years and this will not only make life easier for the common man but also ensure doubling of farmers’ income and generate employment opportunities for the youth.

“The Central University has set up a space technology and research centre, we have IIIM which has brought a purple revolution in Bhaderwah where farmers are earning several lakhs of rupees from lavender cultivation and a high altitude pharmaceutical institute is also coming up in Bhaderwah. Is it?? he said.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) said that the new radar will provide a nowcast (very short range forecast of up to three hours) for all types of severe weather events affecting the region, especially thunderstorms, lightning, thunderstorms and heavy rains. ) would help.

The system will also help in providing weather forecast for various regions, including tourism forecast for pilgrims to Mata Vaishno Devi Temple in Katra, which is visited by an average of 8 people.

5 million every year, the IMD said, it will also provide inputs for numerical weather forecasting models to generate better weather forecasts.

The IMD said that with a combination of data from satellites and other sensors such as automatic weather stations, better forecasts and warnings can be obtained, leading to minimal loss of property and life, thus resulting in public safety and socio-economic benefits. Better services can be provided.
