Meeting with CSIRO on Space Cooperation

The Charges d'Affaires a.i. of the Argentine Embassy, Minister Leandro Waisman, met today with Dr. Alex Held, Director of the CSIRO Centre of Earth Observation to discuss next steps after the recent signing of a Letter of Intent between CSIRO and Argentina’s Space Activities Commission (CONAE), which addresses possibilities for collaboration in this critical field which would include the use of the Argentine SAOCOM satellites for agriculture production and disaster management, and CSIRO’s “Data Cube” project in Latin America.
