Countries around the globe have recognized and appreciated the development of Space technology and its applications for their socio-econornic development. United Nations also encouraged countries to utilize the Space technology for meeting the national challenges and improving the life of common people.
Space technology consists of Satellite Launch Vehicles, Ground Equipments, Satellite Manufacturing and Satellite Services. Satellite technology have enabled numerous applications and facilitating the society in health, education, better management and transparency etc. 80% of satellite technology comprises of Communication Satellites, Earth Observation/Remote Sensing Satellites and Global Navigation Satellite System.
Communication satellites provide communication services including telephone, internet and TV, supporting tele-medicine, tele-health and tele-education etc. Earth Observation/Remote Sensing Satellites provide disaster management and emergency response, urban planning and food & water security etc. Whereas, Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) provides surveying & mapping, location based services, aviation and scientific studies of earth and atmosphere etc. These indicative list and many other applications support the huge implications of satellite technology in the life of common man.
Pakistan has currently facing many challenges and passing through its worst economic condition. Current challenges include the milestones of Millennium Development Goals (MDS), natural disasters, provision of education and health especially in rural areas, land revenue management system and food & water security. These problems can be reduced by satellite technology to improve the life of common people and uplift the socio-economic condition of Pakistan.
Developed as well as developing countries including America, China, Europe, India, Japan and Russia are supporting their space program and allocating a substantial portion of budget to achieve the national space programs. This in turn solving the current problems of country, defining new horizons, encouraging to initiate new businesses/services and creating new jobs in the economy.
Developing countries have limited resources to solve their problems, therefore, a national framework for space technology development has been proposed. This national framework has especially been proposed for Pakistan but the framework is generic to be adopted by developing countries. It has also been suggested to apply a Barometric Model for continuously monitoring the progress of national space technology framework goals.
Space technology has immense capability to solve the challenges of Pakistan. Therefore, proposed solutions to the current problem and line of action for the Government have been highlighted in this report.
