In the event, DOST-ASTI’s booth showcased a scale model of its developed and maintained technologies related to Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation. Among these were the Automated Weather Station (AWS), Agrometeorological Station (Agromet), Automated Rain Gauge (ARG), and the Advance Remote Data Acquisition (ARQ) specifically designed to monitor parameters such as; air humidity, temperature, rainfall, and rain intensity. This network of weather stations were deployed throughout the Philippines, giving government institutions and agencies real-time updates to improve the country's data collection for research and readiness during disasters. The scale stations were displayed in a community diorama as the centerpiece of the exhibit, including Diwata-1, the first Philippine microsatellite that serves as the Philippines’ eye in the sky, and the Philippine Earth Data Resource Observation (PEDRO) center which provides an on-demand satellite image capturing services for various applications in forestry, flood mapping, and change detection. Said facilities were aimed to become a forefront in improving the country’s remote sensing capabilities. Apart from these, DOST-ASTI also featured a 3D display of the Electronics Product Development Center (EPDC) which was under the transport services and advanced cluster. Through the 3D display, the visitors were able to experience a virtual tour of the facility which is located in Bicutan, Taguig City.

About Us

Over the years, the emergence of information and communications technology has greatly affected the lives of people in the world crossing borders among countries and bringing access closer to one another. In the same token, the birth of Microelectronics has resulted to progress in the development of smaller, lighter and more efficient electronic devices.

This development has a striking resemblance to the birth of one of the research and development institutes of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) – the Advanced Science and Technology Institute (ASTI). It was in 1987 when President Corazon C. Aquino renamed the then National Science and Technology Authority (NSTA) to Department of Science and Technology (DOST). As an offshoot of such sequential events, the DOST-ASTI was created as a research and development institute of the Department by virtue of Executive Order No. 128.
