Lessions learned

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The rapid economic growth and technical drives in the Asia/Pacific region over the last two decades have led to the establishment of several new space organizations with high potentials of scientific and technical contributions. Lessons learned from the recent trend of promoting space research via low-cost small satellite missions and the financial crisis in 1997 indicate that there is a need to initiate a cooperative space program in this region to pool the resources so that major environmental and scientific issues in the 21 st Century may be addressed at first hand by the scientific community in Asia/Pacific. In addition to sefeguarding the integrity of the natural environment and resouces, such a collaborative effort will lead to the enhancement of economic growth and regional stability. Scientific microsatellite projects under the auspice of a multi-national university-based consortium could play a key role in this enterprise.
