Furthering research, exploration, and the peaceful use of outer spacethrough international cooperation
Rationale, Levels and Benefits
The revision of the COSPAR Charter in 1998 authorized COSPAR “to recognize as COSPAR Associated Supporters public or private organizations wishing to support the Committee’s activities.” Indeed, COSPAR covers many research areas of interest to research institutions, private industry and other organizations, e.g., Earth remote sensing, space weather, planetary exploration, planetary protection, advanced instrument development, etc.
The status of COSPAR Associated Supporter encourages strategic engagement with, in particular, science-based global industry and is meant to recognize and obtain meaningful support from those industries that benefit from this engagement.
