General Information

The State Enterprise Scientific Center for Aerospace Research of the Earth (CASRE) was established in 1992 according to the Decree of Presidium of National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (NASU) on the basis of research divisions of the Institute of Geological Sciences and Kiev Institute for Aerospace Techniques. Strategic trend of activity for The Centre was assigned to develop fundamental and applied research of the Earth by remote sensing methods. The Centre has approximately 100 staff.

There are 5 research departments in CASRE: Energy and Mass Exchange in Geosystems, Aerospace Research in Geology, Aerospace Research in Geoecology, System Analysis, and Geoinformation Technologies for Remote Sensing.

The work of Center is directed at the fulfillment of scientific targets of NASU and such important programs as ІV National Space Program of Ukraine in 2008-2012, National program “Oil and Gas of Ukraine”, “National geological map – 200”, and also international programs such as “Global Earth Observation System of Systems” (GEOSS), “Global Monitoring for Environment and Security” (GMES/Copernicus), Russian-Ukrainian programs “Monitoring of wave processes’ structure that are generated in lithosphere and other geospheres of Earth”.

Primary scientific directions

  • Development of scientific principles for the aerospace monitoring together with the physical and mathematical models of radiation and scattering processes in the different ranges of electromagnetic spectrum that are induced by the natural objects (vegetation, soil, water, air)
  • Theoretical, methodical, and applied studies targeting the prospecting and exploration of mineral resources using remote sensing tools and techniques
  • Development of new methods and technologies for the computer processing and interpretation of satellite images to solve resource and environmental tasks
  • System analysis for the problems in remote sensing of the Earth.

On the basis of acquired spectral models it was developed several modern space technologies to solve topical tasks of global natural changes forecasting and maintenance of national energy security by diversification of energy supply to Ukraine.

Distinctive competencies

The engineers and researcher staff of the Center are the authors of many international, Ukrainian and Russian patents for techniques and image processing tools in prospecting for oil and gas fields, monitoring of environmental changes and solving of economic issues.

The Institute’s most promising technologies are:

  • Satellite technology for searching of onshore and offshore oil and gas fields
  • Evaluation of environmental conditions for different areas
  • Technology to estimate geodynamic and technogenic impact on geo-ecological conditions of urban agglomerations and landscapes
  • Technology to detect and measure heat losses from the caliducts, industrial and social objects and buildings by thermal remote sensing survey
  • Technology of the external control for the optical and electronic RSE equipment installed onboard of space satellites
  • Technology to determine composition, phyto-sanitary state and fire risk for the forests and meadows
  • Technology to evaluate the vegetation state of winter wheat and its yield using an integrated processing of ground and space information
  • Technology of information support of the strategic and operative planning while decision making for the orbital remote sensing systems development.

Partnering opportunities

The Centre diversifies its international contacts and maintains international cooperation with European Space Agency (ESA), Space Agencies of Germany (DARA-DLR), France (CNES), International Institute for Applied System Analysis (IIASA), Polish, Hungarian and Russian Academies of Sciences and many other leading research institutions and remote sensing organizations abroad. CASRE is a member of European Association of Remote Sensing Laboratories (EARSeL).
