Japanese Specialist Partners with Vietnam’s Environmental Agency for Satellite Sensing Technology

March 2024

Synspective, a Japanese Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) satellite data and analytics solution provider, recently entered into an agreement with the National Remote Sensing Department (NRSD) of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment of Vietnam and Fujitsu Vietnam. The NRSD monitors natural resources, environmental protection, disaster prevention, socio-economic development, security, and defense. Meanwhile, Fujitsu Vietnam, a wholly owned subsidiary of Fujitsu Limited, offers comprehensive, integrated IT, telecommunications, and network solutions.

The partnership is designed to facilitate the exchange of knowledge and expertise in natural resource and environmental monitoring and natural disaster prevention in Vietnam. This collaboration leverages SAR data and analysis solutions from Synspective’s SAR satellite constellation with the comprehensive IT solutions offered by Fujitsu Vietnam to foster the country’s socio-economic development and address societal challenges.

Vietnam, recognized as one of the most disaster-prone nations in the Asia-Pacific region, annually faces severe challenges due to strong winds, floods, storm surges, and landslides triggered by typhoons and tropical cyclones, resulting in significant damage. To address these challenges through remote sensing technology, Vietnam is actively enhancing international cooperation 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 socio-economic development by 2030. These efforts also aim to support national defense, security, and the management of natural resources and environmental protection.
