Scope

GNSS and Space Education Research Lab (GSERL) is dedicated to produce cutting edge research outputs and human resource capacity building in the field of Global Navigation Satellite Systems and space.
Major research activities of GSERL include but not limited to transport monitoring system, livestock management using GNSS, Jamming & Spoofing, GNSS – INS Integration and GNSS Augmentation Systems. GSERL, in collaboration with the international GNSS community and local resources, aims to develop significant tools and techniques on national level to help harvest numerous benefits of GNSS and space applications.
GSERL also focuses on research for methods to spread mass awareness on national level about space science, technology and its applications through various summer/winter schools, seminars, events, workshops & training, competitions and public gatherings for all age groups. The lab aims to incorporate all the segments of the society towards a common goal of realizing the potential in space science & technology for socio-economic and technological development at national and international level.

Research Domains

Domain 1 – Geo-forensic and Geo-Health

1. Design process to acquire seed data from partners/collaborators.

2. Perform data acquisition. This involves data fusion, filtering & pre-processing, data extraction, store and cleansing.

3. Perform spatial big data processing. This step may involve processing big data with aim at extraction of relevant features. Furthermore, data may require performing partitioning.

4. Next step involves evaluating several machine learning algorithms to get an effective learned model.

5. The rules learned in learned model shall be represented in ontologies.

6. SDSS for geo-forensic and geo-health shall be designed and developed based on these ontologies

Domain 2 – Mineral Inventory Baluchistan

The quantification of minerals (existing and new) is a systematic approach to accelerate the economic development of the country. Further, the human resource development associated with the development of Balochistan mineral inventory is a key factor in establishing geoscience-based technological advancement in the province. The mineral inventory will help provincial and Federal government to better understand the economic geology of the minerals in Balochistan and thereof to attract foreign investment. The use of remote sensing and GIS as a tool for mineral inventory will help to accelerate mineral exploration, evaluation, and production program. The project will revolutionize the natural resource development in the province.
