Wednesday morning’s Nikkei wrote that the GOJ plans to launch a policy dialogue on space cooperation with India within the next several months. In the dialogue, government officials, scientists, and engineers from JAXA and the India Space Research Organization are expected to exchange views on how to share technological expertise and scientific and security data collected by their own reconnaissance satellites. India is reportedly interested in tapping Japanese know-how in order to strengthen its monitoring of Chinese military activities on its border with China, while Japan is anxious to learn from India’s strong capability to monitor the ocean from space with the goal of enhancing its ability to monitor Chinese naval operations in the East China Sea and detect possible ballistic missile launches by North Korea. Cooperation on surveillance of space debris will also be a key topic of discussion.
