14h00-14h30: Proposal for Vietnam Space Projects
Abstract:
As proposals for Vietnam space projects, Landsat 8 International Cooperators, QZSS positioning users, and forest fire detection as a UNIFORM member (small satellite applications). Although the first and third one are for VNSC/VAST, the presenter will introduce shortly. The second one is the main topic of this presentation.

14h30-15h00: Space Utilization in Vietnam
Abstract:
This presentation summarizes the interviews and responses for the proposals of the presenter during his stay in Vietnam (2012.12.11 – today). The corresponded organizations are:

  • Vietnam National Satellite Center (VNSC), VAST
  • Institute of Geography, VAST
  • Institute of Information Technology, VAST
  • Hanoi University of Science and Technology (HUST)
  • FPT University
  • Institute of Marine Geology and Geophysics (IMGG), VAST.

15h00-15h30: Survey of Small Satellite development in Japan (2007)
Abstract:
These days, universities and small companies are developing small satellites all over Japan. To develop small satellites, each university or company uses techniques (design, manufacture and testing) that are completely different from traditional methods of large satellites for reduction of cost and time. The presenter investigated the actual status (commercial-off-the-shelf products), each testing method of space environments, issues of testing for small satellites, demand and system with literary documents, questionnaire and interview.
