International Disaster Support 

NRSC provides IRS data for the global Disaster emergencies by servicing the International Charter space, Sentinel Asia and ASEAN Coordinating Centre for Humanitarian Assistance (AHA Centre).
 
International charter space is composed of space agencies and space system operators from around the world who work together to provide satellite imagery for disaster monitoring purposes (https://disasterscharter.org)/
 
The AHA Centre is an intergovernmental organisation, established by the ten ASEAN Member States with the aim to facilitate cooperation and coordination of disaster management amongst ASEAN Member States. The Agreement on the Establishment of the ASEAN Coordinating Centre for Humanitarian Assistance on disaster management was signed by ASEAN Foreign Ministers on 17 November 2011translate the spirit of One ASEAN, One Response into concrete actions is to perform Risk Identification, Early Warning and Monitoring.

The Sentinel Asia initiative is an international collaboration among space agencies, disaster management agencies, and international agencies for applying remote sensing and Web-GIS technologies to support disaster management in the Asia-Pacific region. Sentinel Asia is promoted by cooperating partners in the space community such as APRSAF, the international community—including UN ESCAP, UN OOSA, ASEAN, and the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT)—and the disaster management community, including the Asian Disaster Reduction Center (ADRC) and its member countries.
