    This book focuses instead on the central role that intelligence-collection systems play in promoting arms control and disarmament. Ambassador Thomas Graham Jr. and Keith Hansen bring more than fifty combined years of experience to this discussion of the capabilities of technical systems, which are primarily based in space.

There is another function which satellites could perform for humankind: to directly promote international peace and security through global observation. A satellite which could do this might be called a peace-keeping satellite. Satellite images have been exploited traditionally in the context of international law for the verification of disarmament and arms control treaties.

In an NGO obtained official responsibility to verify a disarmament treaty (the Landmine Monitor for the Mine-Ban Convention) for the first time. With verification regimes becoming more and more intrusive, the importance of satellite imagery as an international technical means (ITM) of verification has by: 9.

For an effective use of satellite imagery, it is important to determine identifiable signatures related to nuclear facilities that could be used in the interpretation and verification of activities.

Earth Observation satellites play already a significant role in supporting the action of first responders in case of major disasters. The main principle is the coordinated use of satellites in order to ensure a rapid response and the timely delivery of images and geospatial information of the area affected by the event.

Reconnaissance satellites of both the USA and the USSR contribute to their national technical means of verification of some arms control agreements but, because all such satellites are highly classified military satellites, financial commitments to such programmes are generally not made public.

31, by the Director of Research of the National Defence Research Institute, Stockholm, The following is a case study on the usefulness of earth observation satellites.

It has been prepared and organized to capture the key aspects as per the objectives of the study. The main aim of the study is to highlight some of the important benefits associated with observation satellites.

On the contrary, a high-flying satellite will often pass almost at the vertical of the observer, making it easier to observe. Finally, the type of the orbit also has a role to play: most Earth Observation satellites are on a sun-synchronous orbit (SSO), meaning they pass over a given site at always the same local time.

Herman Potočnik explored the idea of using orbiting spacecraft for detailed peaceful and military observation of the ground in his book, The Problem of Space Travel.

He described how the special conditions of space could be useful for scientific experiments. Observation satellites could certainly contribute to, if not, in fact, provide, an inspection system.

An observation satellite could be used to detect and locate missile firings, for example, serving either to monitor agreements regarding missile launchings or to assist in reducing the measure of surprise from an attack.

In conjunction. Earth Observation satellites vary according to the type of orbit they have, the payload they carry, and, from the point of view of imaging instruments, the spatial resolution, spectral characteristics and swath width of the sensors. All these parameters are designed at the beginning of the mission definition depending on the application the satellite mission is targeting.

Finally, satellite data was used in the Certain Activities Carried Out by Nicaragua in the Border Area case by Nicaragua to prove the existence of the ‘caño’, or channel, by using satellite imagery from in which the caño was visible.

Costa Rica contested the clarity of the satellite imagery because of thick vegetation, while producing its own satellite image from. Beyond this, the Treaty on Conventional Forces in Europe (CFE I) even permits multinational technical means of verifica- tion.
