which laid emphasis on the application of space technology for finding
solutions to the problems of man and society. Self-reliance

With a view to promoting space technology and ensure its benefits for
the population in the northeastern region, the North Eastern Space
Applications Centre (NE-SAC) has been started. NE-SAC will address
natural resources management and developmental communication and
encourage space science research in the region.
