Dr. Li Xinjun briefly introduced the background of APSCO and wished both sides could build a satellite meteorological data sharing framework in the near future under the witness of CNSA. Mr. Xu Yansong hoped NSMC could deeply cooperate with APSCO especially on promoting the internationalization of fy-3 and fy-4 meteorological satellites on the above mentioned platform and the APSCO MS may discuss about receiving the FengyunCast data or China could support the software for the Member States directly receiving the data. Mr. Zhang Peng appreciated CNSA¡¯s support on all the work of NSMC firstly and agreed the conception raised by Dr. Li Xinjin. Finally, both sides reached a consensus that related experts from APSCO and NSMC would deeply exchange the ideals of satellite data cloud platform constructing, disaster reducing, database promoting and so on. Besides, it would be great to fully use the training resources of APSCO in the fields of meteorological satellite, remote sensing data and disaster reducing application. In the end, Dr. Li Xinjun would like to invite experts from NSMC to visit APSCO in the near future.
