Implementing a Satellite-Based Monitoring and Assessment of Rehabilitation in Typhoon Affected Regions (SMARTER VISAYAS)

The project aims to acquire a high resolution multispectral sattelite imagery through a dedicated tasking services (DTS) for rapid assessment of the damages and for continuous monitoring of the rehabilitation efforts in the typhoon hit areas. The satellite images will be processed and analyzed for planning and rehabilitation of the typhoon-affected regions (i.e. identification of damage in buildings, infrastructure, and crops)

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.
