International Charter: Read the September 2012 Newsletter
The September issue of the International Charter "Space and Major Disasters" Newsletter is now available on the Charter's website. This issue features articles on the introduction of Universal Access, the Charter's latest member EUMETSAT, five years of TerraSAR-X and SPOT 5: 10 years and still going strong.
The International Charter aims at providing a unified system of space data acquisition and delivery to those affected by natural or man-made disasters through Authorized Users. Each member agency has committed resources to support the provisions of the Charter and thus is helping to mitigate the effects of disasters on human life and property.
