A similar SODAR was installed by me in Antarctica during 1990-91.

After Ph.D, studies were conducted on Atmospheric sciences using Indian MST Radar especially on turbulence parameters and gravity waves and also on mobile and Radio communications. Extensive studies on “Digital Video Broadcasting” were carried out for two years in Nanyang Technological University, Singapore during 2012-2014.

An M.Tech program on “Space Technology” was carried out with the help of ISRO.

Many students are working jointly at SVU in collaboration with NARL. The state of the art “Meteor Radar” facility was established for the first time in the Indian Universities. A Lidar & HPC facilities were also augmented to strengthen the research activities.

Published more than 150 research publications and guided 41 students for Ph.D. Several research projects were completed and many are ongoing.

Through the UGC-SVU centre, facilities were extended to user scientists from different Universities across the country.
