|Outline of Experiment||
JAXA provide images captured by earth observation satellite as a part of the activities of "Sentinel Asia". "Sentinel Asia" is the activity to utilize space technologies, especially remote sensing technologies for disaster management of Asia-Pacific region.
For data transmission using "Kizuna" on December 11, 2014, after 22nd typhoon was passed, "DAICH-2 (ALOS-2)" emergency observation images of Philippines damage were transmitted to ADVANCED SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY INSTITUTE (ASTI). These images were used to grasp the disaster situation for Philippines.
"DAICH-2 (ALOS-2)" observation image data was archived in "Sentinel Asia" server placed at Tsukuba Space Center via ground network. After the Philippines typhoon was occurred, the observation image data was sent to server placed at ASTI via "Kizuna". These images were used to grasp disaster situation.
