The International Charter: Space and Major Disasters was activated yesterday to provide satellite images and image products in search of the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370. The international mechanism was triggered by China Meteorological Administration, which will also do the project management for the activation.

Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 disappeared from radar over the South China Sea on 7 March 2014. The jet was carrying 239 people (12 crew and 227 passengers) and has yet to be found despite a multi-national search.
