Representatives from VNSC and JAXA sign an agreement on satellite data exchange

The pact aims to assist the DataCube programme in Viet Nam, which is an earth-observation-satellite database used for the development of other applications to monitor paddies, forests and water quality.

As part of the agreement, the Japanese agency will provide ScanSAR ALOS-2 products that capture the Vietnamese territory and research topics agreed upon by the two sides.

The agreement also provides a framework for the two sides to expand their cooperation in research and application development through the use of Earth observation (EO) products, not only from the ALOS-2 satellite, but also others, as well as data already available in the DataCube system.

The cooperative content under the agreement will last for two years.
