About Working Groups
APRSAF currently organizes four working groups: Earth Observation (EO), Communication Satellite Applications (CSA), Space Education and Awareness (SEA), and Space Environment Utilization (SEU), to share information about the activities and the future plans of each country and region in the respective areas. APRSAF also supports the establishment of international projects as solutions for common issues such as disasters and environmental protection so that the participating parties can realize cooperation.
From the APRSAF-1 to 7, we had a plenary sessions focused on exchanging general information of each country and views to the future cooperation in the Asia Pacific region.
At APRSAF-8 & 9, we set up 4 working groups (W.G.), Earth Observation,Communication Satellite Applications, Space Environment Utilization, and Space Education and Awareness to embody the cooperation in our region. In consequence, we adopted the general recommendations which reflected the proposals by each W.G.
At APRSAF-10 & 11, there was a plenary session and three working groups, Earth Observation Working Group(EO), Communication Satellite Applications Working Group(CSA) and Space Education and Awareness Working Group(SEA). The issues regarding Space Environment Utilization was discussed at SEA. Through the discussion, each working group submitted their proposals to the plenary session and all participants adopted the recommendations.
At APRSAF-12, both "International Space Station(ISS) Working Group."and" Special Session on Establishment of a Joint Project Team for Disaster Reduction through Effective Space Technology Utilization in the Asia Pacific Region" were newly established.
In this Website, we report the latest news from each W.G.s.
