Development of Sentinel Asia as a platform to facilitate space-based technology application to disaster management operations

Sentinel Asia (SA) was conceptualized in 2005 and first began operation in 2007. SA is engaged in activities to share and provide disaster-related information including earth observation satellite images via the internet to contribute to disaster management in the Asia-Pacific region. Between 2006 and 2016, 270 emergency observation requests were made or accepted, providing satellite images and a Value Added Map to Sentinel Asia members to support disaster management. These provided data were shared between space agencies and disaster management organizations in countries affected by natural hazards. However, it is expected that more swift response is needed for local emergency response activity in case of natural hazard.
