5. The First Interview of an APRSAF member, on the topic of:
“Introduction of the JAXA DMSSO”
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In this, our first interview, we visited the Disaster Management Support Systems Office (DMSSO), Satellite Applications and Promotion Center of JAXA which has been established on May 1st, 2006.

The DMSSO is a new organization which was created as a result that JAXA reviewed its organizations for the purpose of further realizing JAXA's objectives effectively.

We interviewed Takashi MORIYAMA, Ph.D., Director of DMSSO about the following topics:

Purpose and Role of DMSSO
Operation of the International Charter
Promotion of Satellite Utilization in the Asian region for disaster
prevention

The contents of the interview, and information on DMSSO activities will
appear soon on the APRSAF web site.
