Space Days in Kazakhstan

I-st International Seminar "Space Days in Kazakhstan" was held on the 10 - 11 April 2013 in Astana, the hotel «Rixos President Astana». The seminar was devoted to the upcoming launch of the first Kazakh Earth remote sensing satellite (hereinafter – ERS SS) and devoted to the International Day of Human Space Flight, which is celebrated annually on April 12th.

Organizers: Aerospace Committee of the Ministry for Investment and Development of the Republic of Kazakhstan, Joint Stock Company "National Company" Kazakhstan Gharysh Sapary".

The purpose of the seminar: to inform the public about the results of ERS SS of Kazakhstan, as well as about the use of products and services of ERS SS and HSNS of the Republic of Kazakhstan to solve industry problems of Kazakhstan's economy, the application of modern geo-information technologies to solve the problems of the state, regional and municipal administration, land cadastre, cartography, oil and gas industry, geology, energy, agriculture, environment and natural resources, as well as national security.

The seminar was attended by about one hundred and fifty experts from Kazakhstan, including representatives of the General Prosecutor's Office, the National Security Committee, the Ministry of Defense, Ministry of Interior, the Ministry of Regional Development, the Ministry of Transport and Communications, Ministry of Environment, Ministry of Industry and New Technologies, the Ministry of Education and Science, the Agency for Statistics, akimats, JSC "National Managing Holding "KazAgro", JSC "NC "Kazakhstan Temir Zholy", "Kazakhmys Corporation", JSC “KazTransOil" and others.

An active work to attract potential users of remote sensing and HSNS was done. Explanatory work with the offer of promotional nature of geoproducts and services provided by JSC "National Company" Kazakhstan Gharysh Sapar" was performed.

This seminar allowed experts of JSC "National Company" Kazakhstan Gharysh Sapary " to develop further cooperation with colleagues from near and far abroad in the frame of remote sensing.

Most of the interest of potential customers caused the realization of archival satellite images and new tasking images, the cost and efficiency of producing, creation of products with high added value (mosaics, DEM, DTM), services to create electronic maps and space monitoring, services of linking satellite remote sensing imagery to precision coordinates of the project HSNS, created in Kazakhstan network of differential stations of HSNS.

Also, potential customers were interested in the possibility of organizing the training of remote sensing data processing.

To have feedback with the participants of the seminar the participants were surveyed, the result of which was to obtain information about potential customers and their needs in remote sensing data.

Also, according to the results of the survey, it was found that, according to most participants, the seminar was held at a high organizational and technical level and the participants expressed their wishes to hold this seminar annually.

Taking into account the wishes of the participants and management Kazcosmos, the Company has scheduled to have an annual international seminar "Space Days in Kazakhstan."
