UN World Conference on
Disaster Risk Reduction
2015 Sendai Japan

Third UN World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction,
March 17th, 2015, 9:00 – 12:00

Concept of Operation

  1. It is proposed that the UN Global-Sat Constellation be transitioned and maintained as an international consortium sharing the costs of operating and maintaining the constellation.
  2. The operational concept requires partners in the consortium to share segments’ architecture and the level of participation is inherently flexible as partner nations may choose whether to build or buy a satellite, ground terminals, and processing tools based on the information and standards initially provided in the development phase.
  3. The UN Global-Sat Consortium would assign a Technical Manager to design, build, launch, demonstrate, and provide necessary training for the Nano-satellites constellation.
  4. The Technical Manager could provide the hardware and software designs and prototypes so that commercial, profit, and/or non-profit national / international space firms could participate with government labs, universities, technical institutes and others in order to sustain and improve the program.
