Peru's INDECI & CONIDA host webinar on the use of satellite technologies in disaster risk management research

Webinar on the Use of Satellite Technologies in Disaster Risk Management Research (INDECI & CONIDA)

Like many countries in Latin America, Peru is exposed to a variety of natural hazards that have triggered disasters in previous decades.   Disaster preparedness, response and recovery efforts are coordinated by the National Civil Defense Institute (INDECI).   In recent years, INDECI has benefited from the advisory support provided by Peru’s National Commission for Aerospace Research and Development (CONIDA).  Taking advantage of this advisory support, INDECI developed and launched at the end of 2018 its Agenda

Ocean health, disaster impacts monitored from above by satellite remote sensing

New remote sensing technologies with applications such as predicting problems with ocean fish stocks and assessing natural disasters were reported at conferences sponsored recently in Prague by SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics. The papers and others from SPIE Remote Sensing have been published in the SPIE Digital Library, with freely accessible abstracts and full papers available by rental, pay-per-view or subscription.

Satellite Imagery Crucial in Disaster Relief

The use of satellite images to monitor the after effects of natural disasters is seen as a crucial step in aiding long-term recovery efforts. Researchers at the University of Cambridge, partnering with Cambridge Architectural Research Ltd. and ImageCat Inc., have proposed a systematic process to monitor and evaluate disaster-stricken areas through high-resolution images, according to an article published in the Disasters journal.

Satellite images could aid long-term disaster recovery

Satellite images could be used to track and quantify long-term recovery efforts in regions stricken by natural disasters. But longer term recovery — including the rebuilding of infrastructure and amenities such as schools and hospitals — can take decades, depending on the extent and the location of the disaster.

Rugged Satellite Earth Stations Enable Forward-Deployed Systems For Disaster Recovery

ASC Signal Corporation has announced that its antennas have been chosen as a critical component of Globecomm Systems, Inc.'s Forward-Deployed Asset Support Terminal (FAST) system to enable rapid set up of disaster recovery communications solutions.
ASC Signal's rugged antennas will help support tens of megabits of uplink connectivity in the C- and Ku-band frequencies. This capability will allow FAST users to create multi-purpose hubs for local communications, including mobile services, ready for use anywhere around the world shortly after arrival at a disaster recovery site.
