1. General Dr. Vichit Satharanond, Chairman of the GISTDA Executive Board, Thailand

In 2008, Thailand's Geo-informatics and Space Technology Development Agency (GISTDA) successfully launched the first Thailand Earth Observation Satellite (THEOS) on October 1, 2008 on a Dnepr launcher
from Yasny, Russia. The first set of THEOS images were taken over Bangkok, Phuket Island, and some other areas around the world. The Image Quality Team found from an initial assessment that these images had good geometric and radiometric qualities.

As I promised in 2008 that GISTDA would continue to participate in and contribute to the APRSAF forum in 2009, GISTDA therefore will take great pleasure in hosting APRSAF-16, tentatively to be held in Phuket by the end of this year.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
The most mature area of Australia's space science and technology activities is Earth observation, a natural fit for a country of our size and population. As we define our future activities in this arena it is
clear that continued international cooperation in Earth observation is key to our success as stewards of our land and responsible citizens of our planet. We look forward to continued pursuit of these with our
APRSAF colleagues in 2009.
