Dr. S. Chakravarty

Indian Space Research Organisation, India

Dr. S. C. Chakravarty did his Ph.D degree in space physics from the Physical Research Laboratory (PRL) , Ahmedabad, India and joined the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) at Bangalore during 1973. He assumed various responsibilities to plan, organise and implement the coordinated atmospheric and space science research programmes sponsored by ISRO. As the Programme Director of Space Science research activities, Dr. Chakravarty was involved in the planning and coordination of work related to India's first moon mission, Chandrayaan-1. He also coordinated large number of scientific research programmes involving scientific balloon and sounding rocket experiments, space science satellite missions including Astrosat, SROSS-C, and Megha-Tropiques. Dr. Chakravarty also helped to enable Indian participation in internationally coordinated programmes like MAP, INDOEX, CAWSES etc. Presently his research activities include development of physics based and real time models on monsoon dynamics, the total electron content (TEC) of the ionosphere and aspects of mesospheric phenomena.

Edited Books

  • Technology and Engineering Applications of Simulink

    Building on MATLAB (the language of technical computing), Simulink provides a platform for engineers to plan, model, design, simulate, test and implement complex electromechanical, dynamic control, signal processing and communication systems. Simulink-Matlab combination is very useful for developing algorithms, GUI assisted creation of block diagrams and realisation of interactive simulation based designs. The eleven chapters of the book demonstrate the power and capabilities of Simulink to solve engineering problems with varied degree of complexity in the virtual environment.
