Space provides a unique opportunity for cooperation and sharing of infrastructure (including data) to proactively develop and manage strategic physical, human, economic and environmental sectors. Indeed, for many decades, space technologies have offered individual or cooperation opportunities (e.g. ESA, ARABSAT, etc.) between countries on commercial, scientific and technological level and also strategic advantages for those who control them. Thus, apart from military applications where they derive part of their continuous evolution, space technologies support the development of many sectors of human activity. The fields of environment, agriculture, communications and information technologies, broadcasting, are among the known historical beneficiaries of space applications.
