Decision No. 149/QD-TTg dated February 1, 2019 of the Prime Minister on approving the Strategy for development of national remote sensing up to 2030, with a vision toward 2040
THE PRIME MINISTER
Pursuant to the November 13, 2008 Law on High Technologies;
Pursuant to the January 1, 2014 Law on Science and Technology;
Pursuant to the June 19, 2015 Law on Organization of the Government;
Pursuant to the June 14, 2018 Law on Survey and Mapping;
At the proposal of the Minister of Natural Resources and Environment,
Article 1: To approve “The Strategy for development of national remote sensing up to 2030, with a vision toward 2040” (below referred to as the Strategy) with the following principal contents:
1. To develop remote sensing with advanced, modern equipment and technologies with focuses suitable to requirements of socio-economic development.
2. The State will focus investment on the remote sensing image data receiving system, the national remote sensing database, developing remote sensing technologies, observation and monitoring in a number of fields by remote sensing; to encourage and effectively mobilize social resources for development of remote sensing applications.
3. Remote sensing information, data and products must satisfy technical standards and regulations and be shared and used effectively in sectors and fields.
1. From now until 2030
a/ To master technologies to manufacture remote sensing satellites, the system of remote sensing data receiving and processing stations, remote sensing control stations, taking photographs of the earth’s surface by drones and balloons;
b/ To build the system of data receiving stations, the data processing system, the national remote sensing image database to meet socio-economic development requirements and serve national defense-security;
c/ To widely apply remote sensing technologies, use remote sensing products and data in sectors and fields, especially in natural resources basic survey, observation and monitoring, environment, search and rescue, natural resources prevention and control, climate change resilience; to promote international cooperation in remote sensing;
d/ To provide training to remote sensing human resources with professional qualifications to satisfy the management, application and development of remote sensing technologies.
2. Vision toward 2040
To take initiative in manufacturing technologies and complete the construction of the cluster of remote sensing satellites, the system of remote sensing data receiving and processing stations, the remote sensing satellite control station, the system of photographing the earth’s surface by synchronous and modern drones and balloons in order to supply sufficient remote sensing data and to ensure the application of remote sensing technologies in socio-economic development and safeguarding national defense and security; to raise the standard of Vietnam’s remote sensing technology application to be equivalent to that of other regional countries and developing countries in the world.
III. TASKS AND SOLUTIONS
1. To improve legal institutions and policies, standards and technical regulations of remote sensing. By 2020, to complete the list of public non-business remote sensing services and mechanism for receiving and sharing remote sensing information and data.
2. To improve the capacity of state management of remote sensing with focus on strengthening the organization of the state management apparatus and improving the quality of state administration human resources in remote sensing.
3. To build and develop a remote sensing image data receiving system
a/ To invest in manufacturing a super-high-resolution optical remote sensing satellite, the high spectral resolution lidar and a cluster of small-sized remote sensing satellites; to boost investment in remote sensing hardware, software to serve the update, sharing and exploitation of remote sensing data;
