Defence Geo Informatics Research Establishment: Key Facts

The Defence Research Development Organization recently launched a new laboratory Defence Geo Informatics Research Establishment. The new lab was established by merging existing labs – the Manali-based Snow and Avalanche Studies Establishment (SASE) and the Delhi-based Defence Terrain Research Establishment. This new lab will focus on researching terrain and avalanches along the borders with China and Pakistan. The merger is a part of the DRDO’s aim to be more result-oriented.

About SASE

The SASE was involved in the study of snow and avalanches.

Establishment had prepared avalanche atlas for more than 3000 on-road location in different parts of the country, especially in the terrains where the armed forces were deployed.


it was established in 1954. The primary function of the laboratory was to evaluate the deadlines and assess mobility potential of inaccessible areas. It developed reliable systems that predicted current characteristics various types of triangles based on modern techniques. Also the laboratory developed infrastructure with the latest techniques related and Research.

The mission of the laboratory was to create and update Terrain intelligence reports and thematic maps for the users.
