IRSA is an organization does research on the basic theories of remote sensing, advanced technologies, applications and integrated applications of remote sensing. There are 14 research laboratories under IRSA, as innovative basic units. Radiation transfer and remote sensing laboratory, Environment remote sensing Laboratory and Remote Sensing and Earth Systematic Simulation Laboratory are doing research on basic theories of remote sensing. Hyperspectral remote sensing laboratory, Microwave remote sensing laboratory, Remote sensing calibration and validation laboratory and Remote sensing image processing laboratory are doing research on advanced technologies of remote sensing. Agriculture and ecological remote sensing laboratory, Land resource remote sensing laboratory, Non-renewable remote sensing laboratory and Disaster and emergency remote sensing laboratory are doing research on integrated applications of remote sensing. Spatial information system laboratory and Digital earth and navigation positioning laboratory are doing research on spatial information technology and service. IRSA also contains four national organizations of remote sensing, which are State Key Laboratory of Remote Sensing Information Sciences, Demonstration Center for Space-borne Remote Sensing cooperated with National Space Administration, National Engineering Research Center for Geoinformatics and State Environmental Protection Key Laboratory of Satellites Remote Sensing Applications. The research supporting system of IRSA contain MODIS satellite receiving station, remote sensing experimental test site and online remote sensing data center.
