Collaboration to Enhance Satellite Remote Sensing Technology in Vietnam

Synspective, a leading provider of Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) satellite data and analytics solutions, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the National Remote Sensing Department of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment of Vietnam and Fujitsu Vietnam. This collaboration aims to advance the application of satellite remote sensing technology in monitoring natural resources and the environment, preventing natural disasters, and fostering economic development in Vietnam.

Addressing Disaster Preparedness and Economic Development

Vietnam, known as one of the most disaster-prone nations in the Asia-Pacific region, faces significant challenges due to natural disasters such as typhoons, tropical cyclones, floods, and landslides. The country is actively seeking to enhance international cooperation and investment in remote sensing technology to mitigate the impacts of natural disasters and leverage space science technologies for socio-economic development by 2030. With the support of Fujitsu Vietnam and Synspective, the goal is to support national defence, security, and the management of natural resources and environmental protection.

Utilizing Space Technology for Socio-Economic Development

The MoU, finalized following the APRSAF-29 Space Industry Policy Meeting in Jakarta, Indonesia, in September 2023, aims to set exemplary cases for creating a new ecosystem in ASEAN by leveraging Japanese satellite data and satellite data platforms. Supported by the Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia (ERIA), this collaboration will foster socio-economic development in Japan and ASEAN through space technology.

Driving Socio-Economic Development in Vietnam

The collaboration between Synspective, the National Remote Sensing Department, and Fujitsu Vietnam is designed to facilitate the exchange of knowledge and expertise in natural resource and environmental monitoring and natural disaster prevention in Vietnam. Specific activities under this MoU include ground deformation analysis, developing applications for SAR satellite data, and assessing Vietnam’s monitoring capabilities using the SAR satellite constellation.
