International Charter

The International Charter "Space and Major Disasters" (Charter) serves as an important source of satellite imagery for response to major natural and man-made disasters worldwide.

The International Charter members manage a large constellation of earth-observing satellites that can respond quickly when called upon by emergency management authorities. Satellite data are made available at no cost, as the International Charter operates on a voluntary basis with no exchange of funds. The images from International Charter-managed satellites can help emergency managers respond to a variety of natural and technological disasters worldwide.
