The main task of the Centre is utilizing satellite remote sensing technology for providing a variety of data which are useful for climate forecasting, ocean phenomenon monitoring and exploration, coastal area observation, and others. The data analysis and interpretation are supported by marine and coastal surface observation devices and laboratories, as well as underwater acoustic instruments. Several research institutions are involved in this Centre reflected by the scientists from the various field of disciplines in marine science and technology as in the following organizational composition.

Some of our researchers are working with:
- Air–Sea Interaction by ENSO (El Niño-Southern Oscillation) Event in Equatorial zone and variability of ITF between Pacific and Indian Ocean
- Natural disaster for tsunami, coastal erosion, seismology and volcano explosion
- Establishment of fishery GIS, estimation model and TAC system
- Coastal assessment for pollution
- Land use change and monitoring

Satellite Remote Sensing Data Processing The received data are mainly from ALOS, MODIS and NOAA contain the information on:
- Atmosphere: water vapor, cloud liquid water, precipitation
- Ocean: Sea Surface Temperature (SST), Chlorophyll-a distribution, ocean surface topography, sea surface wind speed
- Altimetry/Sea Surface Height Land: soil moisture, land cover and vegetation index
- Disaster: Tsunami, volcano explosion, land-up and land subsidence
