Synspective is teaming up with the National Remote Sensing Department of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment of Vietnam and Fujitsu Vietnam to help with natural disaster preparedness, natural resource management, and economic and social development. The MoU between the three parties was announced on Feb. 8.

Synspective, a synthetic aperture radar (SAR) satellite data and analytics solution provider, will play a key part in this collaboration that 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.

Vietnam is actively looking to enhance international co-operation and investment in this area. This includes developing systems for image data collection, databases, and applications. The country’s goal is to mitigate the impacts of natural disasters and leverage space science technologies for socioeconomic development by 2030. These efforts also aim to support national defense, security, and the management of natural resources and environmental protection.

“Through our close, long-term, and comprehensive partnership with the National Remote Sensing Center and Fujitsu Vietnam, Synspective’s SAR intelligence will help address various societal issues across the country,” Takayuki Odawara, executive officer and general manager of the business department for Synspective, said in a statement.
