    Made in India Javelines? Pentagon approves two technology transfer licences to India
    WASHINGTON: The Pentagon has approved two previously-stalled technology transfer licences to India and in an unprecedented move has set aside USD 20 million for strategic cooperative science and technology projects with New Delhi.

    While the decision in this regard was made just before Prime Minister Narendra Modi's US visit, the announcement was made by a top Pentagon official during the annual gala of the US-India Business Council (USIBC) on Thursday.

    "What is critical now is that we agree on some projects that we can use to continue building our relationship. Good intentions must lead to tangible results, or the momentum we have built will fade," said Frank Kendall, under secretary of defence for acquisition, technology and logistics during his address at the event.

    Kendall, who is Pentagon's point person for the India-US defence trade and technology initiative (DTTI), however, did not give details about the two licences approved by the US.

    He said: "I have also set aside USD 20 million for strategic cooperative science and technology projects with India, something we have done with no other country."

    Kendall, who accompanied defence secretary Chuck Hagel to India this summer, was highly appreciative of the developments and policy changes in India.

    "It was very clear to secretary Hagel and me that a new wind was blowing in India — the monsoon had changed direction and intensity. Everyone we met, at all levels, was highly interested in opportunities for cooperation," Kendall said.

    NASA-ISRO Synthetic Aperture Radar
    Using advanced radar imaging that will provide an unprecedented, detailed view of Earth, the NASA-ISRO Synthetic Aperture Radar, or NISAR, satellite is designed to observe and take measurements of some of the planet's most complex processes, including ecosystem disturbances, ice-sheet collapse, and natural hazards such as earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes and landslides.


    Data collected from NISAR will reveal information about the evolution and state of Earth's crust, help scientists better understand our planet's processes and changing climate, and aid future resource and hazard management. The mission is a partnership between NASA and the Indian Space Research Organization.

    Scientific Instrument(s)
    - L-band (24-centimeter wavelength) Polarimetric Synthetic Aperture Radar
    - S-band (12-centimeter wavelength) Polarimetric Synthetic Aperture Radar
