Symposium on space science and technology-2021 held

The Symposium on Space Science and Technology-2021 took place from November 17 to 19 under the sponsorship of the Central Committee of the General Federation of Science and Technology of Korea.

The symposium was aimed at positively propelling the space development of the country by widely disseminating and generalizing the latest sci-tech achievements the scientists and technicians in the field of space development made true to the policy of the Workers' Party of Korea and the DPRK government on peaceful space development.

Present at the symposium were scientists, technicians, lecturers, graduate students and officials of scientific and educational institutions including Kim Il Sung University, Kim Chaek University of Technology and the State Academy of Sciences.

Over 190 treatises presented by different units were examined and appraised at the symposium which was held divided into the panels of artificial earth satellite, space materials and elements, space observation and basic science and applied technology.

Most attractive were treatises that solved in a fresh way the urgent matters arising in further developing the technologies of satellite development, control, observation and communication like the technology for manufacturing and testing satellite and fittings, the one for satellite navigation and control of satellite orbit and attitude, the one for developing synthetic aperture radar and satellite camera, the one for satellite communication and observation and the one for developing various space materials.

Highly appreciated at the symposium were such technologies as surveying soil and forest resources, presupposing natural disasters, automatically detecting afflicted areas and quantitatively assessing damage with the use of satellite data.

The symposium served an occasion for confidently propelling the country’s space development plan in keeping with the positive international efforts for developing and using space, a common wealth of mankind, and substantially contributing to the economic growth of the country.
